Think the MLB is trying to hard (still) to manufacture drama?

With the two one-and-done wild card games to be played today, the MLB has “honored the occasion by combing through its extensive film library to put together a highlight reel documenting some of the most dramatic and memorable games in baseball history in which everything was at stake for both teams, as it is today for all four clubs involved,” according to the email we received from an MLB spokesperson.

So this reel includes Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” in 1951, Bill Mazeroski’s 1960 World Series-clinching home run and David Freese’s Game 7 from last year’s World Series.

Don’t be confused: If Baltimore comes from behind and dramatically beats Texas today in 15 innings, and then St. Louis somehow pulls out a miracle in Atlanta, the Orioles and Cardinals don’t go straigh to the World Series.
