The hangover of an insane 4-3 win for the Houston Astros in the 2017 MLB World Series was still fresh in the minds of Baseball fans. Then came March 29 to take them on another joy ride. The pen that jots the history books was in no mood to take some rest. It continued with its spree of rewriting the history books as the MLB 2018 Season became the earliest start ever. The season of surprises then had a bit more in store as the 21-year-old Casey Mize became MLB 2018’s top draft after Detroit Tigers picked him up.

Seven games in nine days! Wondering where the two days went missing? They’ve been scheduled to give a travel break to both the participating sides. Just like every year, the home and away format will be of the 2-3-2 format. One team will host two home games and then go out to play at their opponent’s den in the next three games. If the first five games fail to come up with a winner, the side that hosted the first two games will return home to host the remaining two games. The similar format will be followed for the round 3 games as well. The five-game matchups of round 2 will follow a 2-2-1 format. Which side will have the advantage of playing four games will be decided basis the playoff results.
