So the teams are set for the first round of the playoffs, and the assignments have gone as expected. The A Team gets the Yankees and the B Team gets the Cubs, and since the Mets collapsed and didn't make the playoffs, Ron Darling has been brought on as analyst as well. He'll be paired with Dick Stockton and Bob Brenly will be moved to form the three man team that will do the NLCS with Caray and Gwynn.
Confusing I know, but here's the breakdown....
Chip Caray, Tony Gwynn, and Bob Brenly- Yankees/Indians
Dick Stockton, Ron Darling- Cubs/Diamondbacks
Ted Robinson, Steve Stone- Angels/Red Sox
Don Orsillo, Joe Simpson- Phillies/Padres or Rockies

Orsillo and Simpson are also on the tie-breaker tonight, which I will not be watching because of the Monday Night Football live-blog. Feel free to give me updates throughout the night though.
