IF...The Mets, Phillies, and Rockies win and the Padres lose tomorrow, four teams would have 89 wins.

Which would mean:

Mets/Phillies play a one game playoff to determine the NL East Championship

The loser would then enter a three-way Wild Card playoff. By virture of coin flips, the Rockies can choose to play two games at home or one on the road. Likely the Rockies choose that the Padres play the loser of the Mets/Phillies game, and the Rockies go on the road to face the winner of Padres vs. Phillies/Mets to ultimately determine the wild card.

That is NUTS.

Though it sure beats deciding playoff berths by virtue of runs scored or record against each other when it comes to teams with identical records...

Of course, this could all be moot too. But I think it's kinda neat/crazy.

ESPN has a good write up on all the scenarios: http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=3038686

Arizona's the top seed in the NL and the Cubs are the third. Whoever wins the NL East will be the second seed. Let the fun begin! Probables according to mlb.com:

Florida (Willis 10-15) at Mets (Glavine 13-7) - 1:10 pm
Washington (Bergmann 6-5) at Philly (Moyer 13-12) - 1:35 pm
San Diego (Tomko 4-11) at Milwaukee (Suppan 11-12) - 2:05 pm
Arizona (Petit 3-4) at Colorado (Jimenez 4-4) - 3:05 pm

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
