You crazy for this one, Manfred! There are so many games today that we didn’t even get a game thread up before the first one two started. Whoops!

For those of us on the West Coast, we have the option/luxury/homer-being-force-fed-donuts-in-hell privilege of being able to watch playoff baseball literally all day, on a Wednesday. None of this makes sense, but here we are.

Shit is already getting weird.

LET’S. DO. THAT. BASEBALL.
