The extensive MLB season is finally complete. By winning a tiebreaker elimination game, the Rays now get to play in a Wildcard elimination against an Indians squad that won its last 10 games in the regular season. At least the Rays get to avoid Ubaldo Jimenez, who pitched Sunday to secure the Indians’ spot.
Instead, the Rays are slated to face Danny Salazar, a rookie with 10 career starts. He’s done pretty well, but that isn’t enough to get the Indians many votes. Similarly, the Pirates, making their first postseason appearance in some time, get most of the nods against divisional rival Cincinnati. Certainly, the Pirates are excited to be relevant this late in year once again.
For these sudden death wildcard games, picking the winner correctly is worth two points. So check below to see how everyone thinks they will go, and come back once the games are complete for the results and the Divisional Round selections.
