It's wild-card Friday: Make your picks

Baseball's first-ever wild-card playoffs are set for today on TBS, with the Cardinals in Atlanta to meet at the Braves at 5 and the choked-the-division-away Rangers hosting the Orioles at 8:30.

It's a pretty interesting addition to the postseason format, as I discussed in today's preview story.

I think the pitching of Kris Medlen will be too much for the Cardinals to handle, and the Braves will keep Chipper Jones' career afloat. In the AL, I think the Rangers will find a way to survive at home -- especially against a Baltimore team that has a 7.62 ERA this season against Texas.
