Anchor Drop, October 3, 2023: MLB playoffs are here

Also: men’s golf is in third place.

Los Angeles Angels v Minnesota Twins

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

The MLB Playoffs start today, which in spite of Rob Manfred’s decision to water them down with the wild card round are still the second-best postseason in American sports behind only March Madness. (If you’re wondering, the secret is that they’re fun and exciting without dragging on for two months like the NBA and NHL playoffs do while also reliably giving us weekday afternoon sports.)

Vanderbilt men’s golf finished Monday in third place at the Ben Hogan Collegiate Invitational. The Commodores wrap up the tournament today.
