Folks, we are almost there. Three and a half hours away from the Yankees first playoff game. In a year that has had tons of ups and downs, the Yankees look to take their first playoff game, and get their first "up" of the postseason. The season started against the Tigers with a win, hopefully the postseason will start against the Tigers in the same fashion.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for Rangers vs. Rays, as well. I will be here all night for the game thread, overflows, and recap. If for some reason I'm not here, and you want an overflow, shoot me an email. First comment to see if I'm there, though.

Also, if you haven't yet, you have three more hours to make your postseason predictions!
