We're down to 10 teams, and on Wednesday night that'll be cut to just 8. So On Deck takes a look ahead to the National League Playoffs.

Tara Sledjeski and Matt Moro get into the Mets and what their postseason roster will look like, and what the allignment of their pitching rotation will mean for their NLDS matchup with the Dodgers.

Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw stand in the way of the Amazins, but they have the two worst records of the 5 times who are still playing. The 2nd and 3rd best teams in baseball, the Pirates and Cubs, will have to square off in a one game Wild Card playoff to have the privilege of facing the baseball in baseball, the Cardinals. Tara and Matt take a look at who will get through to the World Series, and which AL for the National League representative will end up facing. Without the guts to make the pick himself, Matt is pretty happy with Tara's pick to win it all.
