    My interest level this year is not even close to what it usually is. Not once have I watched MLB tonight this year and it is usually on in my home at some point each night.

    For this year I am rooting against more teams than rooting for. Early exits for LAD, NYY, STL and HOU would be nice, and I am rooting for CLE, SD and the Cubs. Could care less about anyone else. Wake me up if there is spring training in March. Derp

    brace yourself for EIGHT playoff games on Wednesday.

    recall that 12 seeds do very well historically against 5 seeds, so some potential value there...
