Your new playoff brackets

AL: Yankees (1) vs. Texas (3), Detroit (2) vs. Boston (4)

NL: Philadelphia (1) vs. Milwaukee (3), Arizona (2) vs. Atlanta (4)

Thoughts: The Diamondbacks' victory over San Diego last night, combined with the Brewers' loss to the Phillies, catapults Arizona to the first-round homefield advantage.

This particular race - Arizona and Milwaukee going at it for the number two seed - is interesting not only from a competitve standpoint (of course you'd rather face Atlanta than Philadelphia) but also from a financial one. These are two clubs that really could benefit from an extra postseason home game or two.

--Tomorrow, we'll resume our annual "September Monday" feature. For now, though, we're out, except (of course) to take a moment to remember those we lost 10 years ago today.

For me, I'll take time to think about Kevin Cohen, Kevin Dennis, Jim Gartenberg, Andrew Gilbert and Scott Schertzer.

We will never forget.
