Monday MLB Playoffs Open Thread

New, comments

There are three playoff games happening on this Monday afternoon/night, and you know, I'm still not over the fact that the Orioles aren't going to be in any one of them. I'm especially irritated about it after the Blue Jays swept the Rangers, because seriously, the Orioles could have done that too, couldn't they? Maybe not. Maybe that's just what I'm telling myself because reality is too cruel.

Anyway, the games are lined up as follows this afternoon:

Walgreens at Dodgers, 4:00pm MLB Network

Series tied, 1-1

Starting pitchers: Gio Gonzalez (WAL), Kenta Maeda (LAD)

Indians at Red Sox, 6:00pm TBS

Cleveland leads, 2-0

Starting pitchers: Josh Tomlin (CLE), Clay Buchholz (BOS)

Cubs at Giants, 9:30pm Fox Sports 1

Chicago leads, 2-0

Starting pitchers: Jake Arrieta (CHI), Madison Bumgarner (SF)
