MLB Postseason Schedule is Going Head-to-Head this Weekend Against College Football & the NFL

The baseball season ended Wednesday, and the postseason begins today. Good news: There’s no other sports happening today (I’m not counting Pittsburgh at Syracuse in college football), so there’s no competition, but the bad news is ratings on Friday are bound to be a disaster. But the drama of a play-in game should trump all, right?

Here’s your MLB postseason vs. football regular season schedule for the huge sports weekend:


Oakland at Detroit, 6:07 pm, TBS.
Verlander – best pitcher in baseball? – vs. those plucky, upstart A’s! Maybe LSU/Florida won’t be a close game and everyone will switch over.

Georgia at South Carolina, 7 pm, ESPN.
Two unbeaten teams in the SEC. Loser eliminated from the National title hunt.

West Virginia at Texas, 7 pm, FOX.
Geno Smith, Heisman Trophy leader, and owner of insane stats vs. one of the most popular programs in the country. Last weekend, Texas (and Gus Johnson) helped FOX to a ratings win over ABC.

Cincinnati at San Francisco, 9:37 pm, TBS.
Votto vs. Posey? It doesn’t get much better than than. Well, unless UGA/SC and WVU/Texas are locked in close games.


Oakland at Detroit, 12:07 pm, MLB Network.
The good news for MLB – the Lions have a bye this weekend. So we’ll all watch the first few innings over terrible NFL pregame shows.

Washington at St. Louis/Atlanta, 3:07 pm, TBS.
Bad news, MLB: The Redskins host the unbeaten Falcons at 1 pm. The third quarter should be ending as this baseball game is beginning. Washington is an NFL town.

New York Yankees at Baltimore/Texas at 6:15 pm, TBS.
The 4 pm NFL game are fairly weak … except for Brady vs. Manning.

Cincinnati at San Francisco, 9:37 pm, TBS.
Head-to-head against the biggest beast in TV, Sunday Night Football?
