I'm getting married October 8. The future Mrs EOCF is an equally ridiculous Cardinals fan. We could have quite the situation!

Sunday, October 2
Last Day Of Reg Season

NL Scenarios

Monday, October 3
NL Play-in Game #1 if 2-way Tie for 2nd WC or 3-way Tie for both WCs

Tuesday, October 4
NL Play-in Game #2 if 3-way Tie for both WCs

Wednesday, October 5
TBD NLWC NL Wild Card @ NL Wild Card ESPN

Friday, October 7
TBD NLDS Gm 1 Nats or LAD @ Nats or LAD FS1 / MLBN
TBD NLDS Gm 1 NL Wild Card @ Chicago Cubs FS1 / MLBN


If there is a two-team tie for the two Wild Card spots they do not play a tiebreaker game to decide home-field advantage. Instead, it is decided based on head-to-head record, followed by intradivsion record. If that doesn't settle it, it then goes to intraleague record.

Cardinals: They hold the tiebreaker over the Giants by virtue of winning the season series 4-3, and they currently hold the tiebreaker over the Mets because even though they split the season series, the Cards have a better record against the NL Central than the Mets do against the NL East. That could change, though. Both teams finish their season inside their Division - vs Cincy/Pitt & @ Miami/Philly
Mets: They hold the tiebreaker over the Giants by virtue of winning the season series 4-3.
Giants: Both the Mets and Cardinals hold the tiebreaker over the Giants, which means the Giants would play on the road in the Wild Card Game if they are part of a two-team tie for the two Wild Card spots.

Two teams tie for the second Wild Card spot
If this happens, a tiebreaker game will be played Monday Oct. 3 and hosted by the team with the better head-to-head record during the regular season. If they split the season series, home-field will be determined by the team with the better intradivision record.

*Cardinals: Would host either the Giants or the Mets in a tiebreaker game. Same reasons as above.
*Mets: They hold the tiebreaker over the Giants. Same reasons as above.
*Giants: They would be the road team in a tiebreaker game. Same reasons as above.

Three teams tie for two Wild Card spots
If the Cardinals, Mets and Giants finish with the same record they would receive an A, B or C designation. Think of this almost like a draft, and the team that holds the tiebreaker over the other two gets the "first pick" and can choose the scenario it likes best.
The Cards and Mets both have the season-series edge over the Giants, and the Cards and Mets split their series set, so first choice would go to the club with the better intradivision record, which is the Cardinals as of now, but that could change before the end of the season.
For example, let's assume that the Cardinals (first pick) and Mets (second pick) both choose the designations that give them two chances to make the Postseason, leaving the Giants with only one chance. The Cardinals and Mets would play in St. Louis on Monday, Oct. 3.
The winner of that game would become the host team in the actual Wild Card Game; the loser would travel to San Francisco for a game on Oct. 4.
The winner of the game in San Francisco would earn the second Wild Card spot, and would be the road team against the winner of Monday's game in the NL Wild Card Game on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
However, it is possible that Mets would decide that they prefer to play one home game with a rested pitching staff for a spot in the Wild Card Game. In that case, the Giants would travel to St. Louis for the tiebreaker game on Oct. 3, with the Mets waiting to host the loser on Oct. 4. However, in this scenario the Mets would be forfeiting any chance of hosting the actual NL Wild Card Game, making it less likely.

San Francisco will travel to New York's Citi Field for Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Mets. It'll be a confrontation of premier pitchers, as the Giants' Madison Bumgarner is expected to oppose Mets ace Noah Syndergaard. Bumgarner is 2-0 in two appearances against the Mets -- including May 1 of this season, when he bested Syndergaard with six shutout innings.

Bumgarner is just absurd. Not sure there is another pitcher in the last 20 years that has his post season pedigree. I at least know there isn't another pitcher in MLB right now that is sent back out in the 9th at 106 pitches in that situation.

In Bumgarner's last 8 postseason starts he is 6-1 with a 0.85 ERA, averaging 8 innings per start. Not bad at all.

I was all ready to jump in response and be like, "Well Glavine and Maddux for Atlanta..." Then realized that WAS 20 years ago. You see those two guys, not even considering Smoltz, and you just have to wonder how Atlanta didn't win more than one World Series. Hopefully 20 years from now we're saying the same thing about the Cubs.

This is all counting as I reviewed play-by-play box scores, so there is a probable level of inaccuracy.

2016 NL WCG: Mets were 0-for-10 with runners on, 0-for-4 with RISP.
2014 WS G7 (relief): Royals were 0-for-3 with runners on, 0-for-3 with RISP.
2014 WS G4: Royals were 0-for-9 with runners on, 0-for-2 with RISP.
2014 WS G1: Royals were 1-for-7 with runners on, 0-for-3 with RISP.
2014 NLCS G5: Cardinals were 2-6 for with runners on, 1-for 3 with RISP. (Jon Jay doubled with Carpenter on first and Cruz on 2nd)

So that's 14 hitless ABs with RISP since Jay's double.

2014 NLCS G1: Cardinals were 1-for-12 with runners on (Jay again), 0-for-3 with RISP.
2014 NLDS G3: Nationals were 1-for-14 with runners on, 1-for-6 with RISP.
2014 NL WCG: Pirates were 1-for-12 with runners on, 0-for-5 with RISP.

So since the beginning of the 2014 WCG, opposing hitters are 4-for-73 with runners on, 2-for-26 with RISP.

2012 WS G2: Tigers were 1-for-7 with runners on, 0-for-2 with RISP.
2012 NLCS G1: Cardinals were 4-for-9 with runners on, 2-for-6 with RISP (Kozma and Jay).

Here's some fun. Against the Cardinals in the postseason, Madison Bumgarner has a 4.19 ERA in 19 1/3 innings. Against the rest of the league, 1.50 ERA over 72 innings.

I was asked about Kershaw because Kershaw gets killed for being a bad postseason pitcher for basically sucking against the Cardinals. But he's not as good overall.

Kershaw has a 6.14 ERA in 29.1 IP against the Cardinals in the playoffs, but a 3.31 ERA in 35.1 IP against everyone else.

An oddity about Kershaw is, he's made 13 appearances over 5 different postseasons, but has only faced four different teams. Phillies, Cardinals, Braves, and Mets.
