    If there is a one-game playoff this year, St. Louis and Tampa will have home field advantage.

    Phils up early on Atlanta 2-0. St. Louis and Houston scoreless.

    If I'm the Phils, I lay down for Atlanta. I'd want the struggling team in the playoffs, not the hot team.

    6 zip Phils. Cards have a decent chance to tie this race up. Houston takes a 1 -0 lead against the Cards. Berkman with a woeful throw on a sac fly.

    That would be pretty sweet. Phils sweep Atlanta. But Houston sweeps the Cards to deny them of going to the playoffs.

    Good point, the only problem is the 3 game win streak could give any MLB team momentum going into the playoffs!

    If I'm the Phils, I lay an egg tonight.

    Whatever happens today, I'm sure people in Atlanta are praying that was Lowe's last start in a Braves uniform.

    I originally thought the same thing, BUT then I realized that because you can't play a wildcard from your own division in the first round, the Phils will play the Cards if the Cards are the WC, but will play either the Brewers or the DB's if Atlanta gets in.

    So if the Phils lay down and try to help the Braves in, then they just give the Brewers or the DB's an easier first round matchup, increasing the liklihood of a short series and an advantage for their potential NLCS foes.

    Re: NL Wild Card.

    Please let Chris Carpenter throw a game-losing bomb in the late innings tonight. A pop fly that travels about 312 feet but somehow manages to land in the Crawford Boxes would be perfection. If it comes on the next pitch after he feels he struck the batter out only to not get the call is gravy. I want to see Carpenter go ballistic.

    Ryan Braun needs no worse than 3 for 4 to win the batting title.

    I wonder how many Reds fans heads would explode if say not only do the Cards get into the playoffs but would somehow pull off the unthinkable and win it all?

    Phillies jumped out 1-0, but Atlanta comes back with a run in the bottom half of the first. 1-1.
