So who do the Yanks and Phils want to play?

Not sure it's ever quite come down like this - maybe but I don't remember where two of the teams that have clinched play 2 of the teams that desperately need to win....

Do the Yanks lay down and try to keep Boston out of the post-season? Do the Phillies lay down and let the Braves in so they don't have the potential of facing the hotter Cardinals team?

Lines are pretty telling as Tampa is -200 - when have the Yankees been that much of a dog?
Phils with Cliff Lee are only -130...2 weeks ago they would have been -175 in the same situation..

Should be fun to watch these last 3 days of games...what does everyone think will happen?

How should we bet these (other than we probably shouldn't - LOL)?

LOL I will stay away unitl the playoffs. Yanks would be smart to keep boston out but everyone knows the Yanks suck and are not smart.

Nobody wants a piece of my RANGERS!! Should be fun

I don't know. I'd guess Phils should play like normal and try to win the game.

Would be quite interesting coming down the stretch since Baltimore has played Boston fairly well over the last few weeks. If Tampa sweeps and Boston takes 2 out of 3 we will in fact have a game 163.

Same scenario with Atlanta vs. Philadelphia and St. Louis vs. Houston.

This is why they should keep the wildcard format the way it is. No need to add an extra two teams in 2013 and a one game playoff. You play 162 games to get there in the end. Don't add confusion to an already complicated scenario.
