Wednesday and Thursday night with the Wild Card games. It's a one-game playoff within the playoffs as for the four teams involved, it may just all come down to this. It's the Athletics and the Royals in the AL, and it's the Giants and the Pirates in the NL. Who will advance to the Division Series? Here are my Wild Card picks.
Tuesday, September 30th
No, and here's why. While Kansas City has a pretty darn good pitcher on the hill in James Shields, Oakland will be throwing out Jon Lester. And while Lester hasn't been great in Kansas City this year, he does own the Royals. Not to mention that the Royals aren't a great hitting team and Lester is a monster in the postseason. Therefore, I like Oaktown.
Athletics 3 Royals 1

Pirates 3 Giants 2
