10/8/18: ALDS & NLDS Open Game Thread

2 teams could be going home sad today!

MLB: NLDS-Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the Brewers swept the crap out of the Rockies over the weekend, proving that the NL West is indeed 80% trash. Smell ya later, Rox. For today, we’ve got 3 games going and 2 of them have potential eliminations.

For your Monday morning baseball enjoyment(?), Cleveland will desperately try to avoid getting swept by the Astros.

The Braves found some magic last night and held off the undead masses of stockpiled talent known as the Dodgers. They look to keep going and force a game five with another win today in the northern burbs of Atlanta. #GoBarves

And finally, a game that will surely go until at least 2 AM East Coast time, game three of the Red Sox at the Yankees. It’s tied up 1-1. This is gonna be the best series of the entire playoffs isn’t it? Peaking early like a babyboomer stuck forever in middle management.
