I don't remember the last time I was this excited for a Major League Baseball postseason. That is, one without the Atlanta Braves involved and let's face it, I've had to get used to not having a strong rooting interest in October for the better part of the last decade.

While MLB has felt top heavy in terms of competition this season, I say that only helps the sport. Even if the bad teams are REALLY bad, the good teams are REALLY good and there are more than a handful of teams that could win the World Series. How great would a Yankees-Dodgers, east coast-west coast World Series be? Or Cubs-Red Sox, two once lovable losing franchises to find great success this century and built to win for many years to come?

ESPN baseball analyst and reporter Tim Kurkjian joined Big Board Sports to preview the postseason starting Tuesday with the Yankees-Twins one game Wild Card playoff.
