With a weekend off of no baseball activities so players and their families could get settled into the MLB postseason bubble — and so people could watch this other sport called *checks notes* football? — there wasn’t a lot of new news to cover, but two big things made the rounds.

The first, obviously, is the mix of coverage about what was learned from the adjusted Wild Card series, and how writers think things will shake out in the forthcoming division series that start on Monday and Tuesday. Both are covered extensively in the links below.

The other, sadly, was the passing of Cardinals great Bob Gibson, who passed away at the age of 84 on Friday. You can read his obituary from The New York Times here.

Now, as we gear up to see which teams will fight and claw their way to the championship series, let’s get into the weekend links.

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