Wild Card Friday

I am most likely not going to do game threads for the entirety of the playoffs, but tonight’s two first-ever one-game wild card playoff matches seem like a good place to have discussion, since the next seven hours or so of baseball ought to be pretty interesting. Will this be Chipper Jones‘ final game? Will the Orioles’ magic season end without so much as a home playoff game? Is starting Joe Saunders ever a good idea, ever?

 @Frank J Lapidus Yep, you're about the 6th one to post that here on MSTI. I posted it saying "reasons Dodgers would re-sign gnome" and adding the pull quote:

Let’s see, Kemp is abducted by little green men, Ethier retires to open up cooking school, Crawford decides to finally take UCLA up on that scholarship to play point guard.
