It has been, undoubtedly, the weirdest Major League Baseball season ever. None of us have ever seen anything like this before, and hopefully will never see it again. A 60 game sprint to the playoffs led to a wild ride for pretty much every team. Between missed games, tons of double-headers, surprising slumps and blistering hot streaks, you really had some crazy news to report every day.

The Yanks leapt to the top of the AL East, going 16-6 to start the season. Then, a dreadful 5-15 slump had the season in doubt. They actually briefly sat at .500, but managed to push through the end of the season to clinch a playoff spot. Up until yesterday, most of the American League's playoff bracket was up in the air in terms of seeding, because so many teams ended the season with similar records.

Now that the dust has settled, and the regular season is over, we get to the best weeks of the year: PLAYOFF BASEBALL!

I admit I am equal parts excited and terrified and just plain curious about how the playoffs will turn out this year. A 3-game Wild Card series is a complete toss-up, so who knows how the first round will go. After the Wild Card round, the best-of-five Division Series', best-of-seven League Championship Series' will be played in the playoff "bubbles", with the NL teams playing in Houston and Arlington, and the AL in Los Angeles and San Diego. The World Series will be played in Arlington, Texas.

So, here's what the Yankees are looking at in the first round:
September 29 - Yankees @ Indians, 7:00pm
September 30 - Yankees @ Indians, 7:00pm
October 1 (if necessary) - Indians @ Yankees, time TBD
