Baseball's new playoff format kicks off today with two one-game wild card series. Here are the odds for each game, one of which seems like an easy play in my opinion.

Cardinals: +145
Braves: -165
Over/under: 6.5

Orioles: +165
Rangers: -190
Over/under: 9

A lot of sites/blogs (like this one and this one) are running "WAGs of the MLB Playoffs" pieces right now. This makes me sad that Minka Kelly is no longer a sports WAG. (Supposedly she's now dating actor Chris Evans, which is OK since Not Another Teen Movie is the most underrated movie of all time, but I digress.) Anyway, let's all remember a one-time Sexiest Woman Alive and all-around beauty.
Eventful Night
After making this sweet catch, Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola injured his shoulder. He then let out his frustrations on his helmet.
