But will the season be deemed a failure if they don't win it? That being said, I just don't see the Twins doing enough here. Mouth-watering matchups abound: the 100-win Astros against the red-hot Red Sox, the World Series-champion Cubs against the World Series-favorite Nats, the Dodgers putting their historic regular season on the line against one of the only two teams they posted a losing record against this year. Such is the weirdness that creating an incentive to finish last leads to. "It took us a little while to get to play the kind of baseball I thought we were capable of (but) we knew we had the people in here to do it". But since the Cubs won the World Series last year and ended their 108-year drought, the team now carries a less-lovable underdog quality.

Chicago, who hold the three-seed, will take on the second-seeded Washington Nationals in the other NLDS.

With their 2-1 loss to the White Sox on Saturday night at Progressive Field, the Indians stand at 101-60 on the season with one game remaining. They went 56-11 between June 8 and August 25.

The above is partly the whole point of having the Wild Card round.

That's not a bad thing in my book. That's what makes it fun.

The Wild Card, especially the second Wild Card, adds something else to the play-off pot. It was always tough to get (batting) cage time.

The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks will meet in the National League's wild card playoff on Wednesday, with the victor to face the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers from Friday.

Last year, the Cubs erased demons by winning the World Series for the first time since 1908.

The 2017 MLB postseason begins Tuesday with the American League wild-game slated to pit the Yankees up against the Twins. The American League Division Series game will be televised by FS1 and MLBN. It's unsurprising to see Wild Card teams have the lowest odds, of course.

It could well be that this is the year the Dodgers, five-time NL West champions, figure it out. During the last 14 years, the winning league in the All-Star Game got to have home-field advantage in the Series.

The second game of the series was the Twins' game to lose - and lose they did, holding a 3-1 lead until the bottom of the ninth inning. Various people lost their jobs as a result, but there was still some talent at the club and the potential for a quick return to respectability.

That chance was hardly a given when Chicago was 43-45 on July 9 and 5½ games back of NL Central-leading Milwaukee. The wild card victor will play the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium at 10:31 p.m. ET.

The Indians'.721 winning percentage remains the all-time record for an American League team, but that is not how the 1954 Indians are remembered by historians.

There were just five AL teams above.500 and Minnesota is one nearly because some team had to be the best of the worst.

Major League Baseball takes that further by playing a 162-game regular season.

This is where the cream rises to the top.

Ask the Yankees organization and they'll probably say they expected to be playing in October this year, but most baseball experts figured the Yankees were still another year or two away from contention. Game 3's late surge wasn't quite enough. That's a real achievement for Paul Molitor and his team. "After a 162-game season and you're one of the final 10 standing, you've earned the right to be there".

One lemon tree will produce about 1,500 lemons a year.

In the American League, the Astros and Red Sox face off. The Yankees would go on to crush any hopes the Twins might have had for a comeback, finishing with an 8-1 rout in Minnesota to win the ALDS in four games.
