The San Diego Padres play three games against the San Francisco Giants this weekend, needing to win all three just to force a one-game winner-take-all playoff game on Monday.
Does that happen often? Well, the last instance I can think of was in 1980, when the Dodgers faced the same situation against the Astros. The Dodgers won all three but lost in the Monday tiebreaker.
I'm of two minds. As a Dodgers fan of long standing I shouldn't be able to root for the Giants at all, but they've never won a World Series since they moved to San Francisco; getting into the playoffs is the first step toward that goal. As for San Diego, I have no strong feelings either way. I think I'd like to see San Diego win tomorrow but then see the Giants win on Monday.Posted by Linkmeister at October 2, 2010 02:15 PM | TrackBack
