Whether you love or hate the new MLB postseason Wild Card round, no one can say it hasn’t been interesting (though a great deal of how interesting and/or miserable we think it is might depend on today’s Marlins/Cubs Game 2). But it has certainly spelled upset for a couple of top-seated teams like the (potentially cursed) Twins, or bested the pitching prowess of the Reds (in the longest scoreless game in MLB postseason history).

It has been a wild and wacky ride so far, and by next week it will take the shape of something a lot more familiar as the ALDS kicks off on Monday, followed by the NLDS on Tuesday.

Let’s see what the expert minds of baseball had to say about this strangest baseball timeline.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
