The World’s Quickest (and Most Insightful) 2017 MLB Playoff Preview

I am a man who believes in brevity. No harping on the small, inconsequential stuff. I’m here to give y’all the full meat and potatoes, and I’m gonna start with the 2017 MLB divisional series. One thing MLB got right was the wildcard round: a one game, winner-take-all. It’s exciting, and it underscores the importance…

NFL 2017 Week 5 Preview
