MLB playoffs 2017: Full bracket and schedule

Hideki Matsui helped the Yankees to their most recent World Series title a playoff run that began with the team's win over the Twins in the ALDS

W: WILD CARDS — Madison Bumgarner and the 2014 Giants are the only wild-card team to win the World Series since Major League Baseball went to a one-and-done format in 2012. Expectations are high for the team with baseball's best record and the Dodgers should be able to handle any team they face, but their opponent in the division series will be a team that will know their game inside and out. However, in the second half they posted the best record in the National League going 44-23.

The Dodgers await the victor of Wednesday's NL Wild Card matchup of Colorado (+155) at Arizona (-175).

The Indians have every right to feel that way as they head into the postseason. However, Kershaw is known for flunking in important games. Fox and FS1 are available channels on YouTube TV, so all World Series games will be streamed, but TBS and MLB Network are not yet part of the package. Los Angeles and Washington have been the class of the National League. Ervin Santana is a fine option to have and had a great year, but would you prefer him to go against Verlander, Kluber, Sale, or even Severino in a winner-take-all game?

Over the past six seasons, the Red Sox have either finished first or last in the American League East.

"We're going to run into these guys in the playoffs, and you'll come down, and you'll see them crumble", Ricketts said to President Trump. You have Zimmerman, Murphy, and Bryce Harper is back.

Now free of everything that went along with the franchise's long championship drought, the Cubs are looking forward to putting their experience to good use. Instead of Chicago winning the series 4-2 again, the 2017 NLCS has the possibility of going as far as Game 7.

H: HOME FIELD — World Series home-field advantages goes to the team with the best record. The NL wild-card victor will match up with the NL West champion Dodgers, starting Friday at 10:31 p.m. EDT at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Typically hovering around the 95-win mark, the Nationals possess a lot star power in the form of veteran performers and young superstars.

Over the past decade, the Red Sox have had their time in the limelight, which means you won't find many non-Red Sox fans clambering for the club to go all the way in 2017. The leading candidate for American League MVP has led a team that until two years ago no one thought anything of, a team that only a few years ago had a payroll less than Alex Rodriguez's salary, to an AL West top finish and a second seed in the playoffs. As the favorites in the American League Wild-Card Game and the National League Wild-Card game, respectively, the New York Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks both have +1400 World Series odds. Nobody is picking the Yankees to beat the Indians, so against my better judgement, I guess I will. The Yankees did it in 2000 when they beat the New York Mets in five games, capping off their three-peat.

The oddsmakers are sure of one thing: The Los Angeles Dodgers and Cleveland Indians should meet in the World Series. And the only reason I'm not picking them to win it is, so much can happen in a insane series like that and just getting there would be a success to me.

The Houston Astros are supposed to be here. The book had the team as the favorite throughout much of the 2016 season. And it's not like football where 16 games decide who will move on to the playoffs.

This might be the toughest division series to handicap, as questions linger about both of these excellent teams. The Indians will win Game 1 of the World Series because of Kluber out-pitching Lester.

Three Cubs who played in that series aren't in the organization anymore, including catcher Miguel Montero, who was designated for assignment the day after criticizing Arrieta for contributing to seven Nats stolen bases in a 6-1 loss to Scherzer.

If Chicago's starters can get their job done, the bullpen is strong, and closer Wade Davis is Mr.
