If the Braves win and the Pads win, won't there be two playoffs - one for the NL West and one for the Wildcard?

Yeah, that's what I mean. I'm rooting for the Padres to win so we'll gave two one game playoffs.

Come to think of it, what incentive do the Phillies have for winning this game?

None whatsoever. Losing at worst means they play the Reds and avoid the west coast and the SF Staff. At best it means two play-offs and a likely used up opponent.

Wow. All the sudden the Phillies have come back. It is now 8-7 Braves in the 8th.

Big argument in San Francisco as Torres the Giants leadoff hitter doubled down the line. It hit the chalk but they called it foul.

That is a huge miscall in a game this big. That is where replay would really help on a call like that.

So with the Braves win here are the possibilties:

Giants win: Giants win the West, Braves win the WC, Reds play the Phillies

Padres win: 3 way tie, Giants and Padres play tomorrow for the West, loser plays Braves Tuesday for the wild card.

The AL playoff picture has just been finalized. The Yankees and Twins both lost today.

Tampa Bay wins the East and the Yankees are the wild card. Tampa Bay has home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The matchups will be Tampa Bay against Texas and New York against Minnesota.

Crazy. If SD wins, Reds have to wait til outcome of Tuesday game to know where they go.

That either means a trip to Philly for a Wednesday game or a trip to the west coast for SD or SF on Thursday.

Crazy.

I had already accepted the fact that the Reds would be playing the Phillies in the NLDS... then the Braves and Giants lost on Friday and Saturday and I got my hopes up that we might avoid Philly in the NLDS. Now it's back to looking like the Reds will face the Phillies.

This game is over. With the Padres offense, this game might as well be 6-0. Reds will open in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Come on, OBM. How many times have you given up. Heck, you gave up several times when the Cardinals were behind 2-3 runs behind other teams and quite often they wound up losing those games.

The Padres aren't done yet. This game is far from over. I have a feeling they'll have one more run in them. Whether or not it's enough is another story. But we'll soon see.

Wait, aren't you the same guy who was constantly declaring games over with in the game threads? ;)

The Padres offense stinks and Sanchez is on his game today. I'll be shocked if the Padres come back.

For a couple of weeks, yes. Some of it was a reverse jinx attempt, other times I didn't feel it.

The Pads' offense isn't very good, but they've been on top of their game lately when they've largely needed it the most. I disagree about sanchez being on his game though. His command has been bad (as much if not more than usual). He's walked four guys already. If he can get through this inning without any damage, that might be big for them.

But I'm not gonna write SD off just yet.

First and second, no outs, and the Padres don't score. They blew their chance.

The Padres have blown way too many chances today. They have had runners in scoring position in 4 of the 6 innings and have scored nothing.

2 runs really isn't all that much, but the Padres offense is just so bad. And the game is getting late now.

As far as the games times go if the Reds face Philly game 1 would either be 1:30, 5 or 8:30 on Wednesday. It would probably be an afternoon game. Game 2 should be 6:30 on Friday night.

The Reds win 91 games, win their division, and what's the reward? Reds have to travel to Philadelphina to play the best team in baseball all because of some stupid rule that says two teams in the same division can't play each other in the LDS. That's a stupid rule, IMO.

I don't know if it's bad going to Philly in the first round vs. the second. One positive way to look at it is that we only have to win three games instead of four. Upsets happen more frequently in five game series. Win one of the first two games.
