It???s hard to dictate a who will go to the World Series without knowing who???s playing who in what round, injuries, and all of that noise.
However, things in the American League turned a bit on its ear when the Detroit Tigers choked away their division title to the Minnesota Twins, who was the hottest team in all of Major League Baseball down the stretch.
Taking it one round at a time, let the intangibles run through the blood, and momentum either take hold, or be overrated. In the meantime, the Twins won themselves a date with the AL West champion Oakland Athletics and home field in the series, while the Tigers dealt themselves the consolation prize in facing up with the New York Yankees.

The first ball was thrown out by New York Mayor LaGuardia. Everyone settled in on that summer-like day to watch the matchup of Brooklyn's Kirby Higbe and New York's Atley McDonald in the first Subway Series between the two teams.
TECHnically speaking, the NCAAs aren???t loaded up with marquee matchups like they were a week ago with just two ranked-against-ranked games on the docket for Saturday.
#1 Ohio State meets up with Big 10 brother Iowa ranked #13 in the country in Iowa City. Both teams are 4-0, and while the Buckeyes have been tested facing and beating two ranked teams so far this season (#2 Texas; 24-7 #24 Penn State; 28-6), the Hawkeyes face their biggest test of the season against the country???s top team.
The big chatter is regarding the last time these two teams met up at Kinnick Stadium in 2004, and Iowa lit up Ohio State, 33-7. However, Heisman candidate QB Troy Smith came in for garbage time, and has been running the show for the Buckeyes ever since.
The National Women's Football Association, which recently created and adopted the slogan, "Baby...Look At Us Now!" has now produced the official logo for the slogan.
The logo was designed by FS Designs, owned and operated by Francis Santaquiliani. "Francis has done 99% of our league's logos and all of the NWFA's logos. He's one of the most creative and talented logo designers around and we have worked with him since we started the league in 2000," states Debby Lening, VP of the NWFA.
The league hopes the new slogan and logo will create more interest and both fan and corporate support. " The NWFA and it's teams are the hottest ticket in sports and once people see a game, they're hooked," Lening adds.
