Round 1/Group 29. Aw yeah. On a non-card related note, if you haven't read about what happens if the Cardinals, Pirates, and my Reds all tie for the NL Central title, you should. An annotated version is that apparently it would be a Reds-Cards game in St. Louis for game 163, the winner of whom would play the Pirates for game 164. Then the two losers would be the Wild Card teams, which would flip the days of the NL and AL Wild Cards games as currently scheduled. Since the Reds close the season with three games against Pittsburgh, the Reds could, in theory, go PIT PIT PIT @STL PIT @STL @PIT @PIT PIT PIT @PIT with no off day for the first eight of those (assuming the three-way tie, winning 163, losing 164, winning Wild Card game, then drawing Pittsburgh for the opening series and going all five games). This won't happen. But it could.
Believe it or not, the MLB tournament is somehow more ridiculous than mine. Whoda thunk it?
