Here is my Dream Finish for the American League:



Oakland Beats Texas to win the AL West
New York Loses and Baltimore wins forcing a game 163 on Thursday
Baltimore wins game 163 to win the AL East
Texas beats New York in Wild Card game on Friday thus eliminating New York from the playoffs.


If the above happens, I believe that Baltimore would be the #1 seed (due to winning extra game) and would host Texas in the ALDS and Oakland would host Detroit.

I think any true Twins fan would love it if the Yanks lost in a winner-take-all match like the one that the Twins played in right before they got swept out of the playoffs by NY in 2009 (Game 163 FTW!)

I thought that on last night's Detroit-KC game they said something about Detroit will host 1st round.

I wasn't sure at the time how that was true but I believe it is what was said. So I'm confused.

Check #1 off from your list.

Do you think anybody in the MLB office dreamed that the one-game wild card game might be Texas & the Yanks?

No, but Baltimore and the BoSox both need to get it going for that to happen.

For Round 1 they apparently changed the format from 2-2-1 to 2-3 so instead of the higher seeded team starting out at home they actually start on the road for the first 2 games. This was done to cut down the days off needed for travel days to shorten the overall length needed for the postseason.

It looks like the 7 game series will still follow the 2-3-2 format that has been used in the past.
