9/30 MLB Playoffs Open Thread

This is baseball cocaine.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this is suddenly fun.

The 16-team playoff with no off days during series is a bit goofy, sure, but the end result is this: a day with eight playoff baseball games, starting at 11 AM CT and ending sometime around midnight. If you’re a baseball fan, this is it.

Also: Walker Buehler starts for the Dodgers tonight. Your schedule:

11 AM (ESPN): Cincinnati Reds at Atlanta Braves

12 PM (ESPN2): Houston Astros at Minnesota Twins

1:00 PM (ABC): Miami Marlins at Chicago Cubs

2:00 PM (ESPN): Chicago White Sox at Oakland A’s

3:00 PM (TBS): Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays

4:00 PM (ESPN2): St. Louis Cardinals at San Diego Padres

6:00 PM (ESPN): New York Yankees at Cleveland Indians

9:00 PM (ESPN): Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers

Remember: if the Twins, A’s, Blue Jays, and Indians all win today, we get eight games again tomorrow. Hooray, goofy COVID-influenced playoff baseball!
