But there's no way that's happening. The baseball gods will not allow such a thing. There must be heartbreak.
This is my prediction for how things will turn out:
The Braves win one of the next two games, and the Giants lose both. They end up tied for the wild card. A one game playoff will be played in Atlanta.
Tim Lincecum pitches against Greg Maddux, who unretires for one game. The game is tied 0-0 through 18 innings. Lincecum, to this point, is pitching a perfect game. He has thrown 162 pitches, with 54 strikeouts.
Maddux is also throwing a perfect game. He has thrown 54 pitches, with 0 strikeouts.
Bud Selig, who is in attendance, stops the game and declares it a tie. In the interest of fairness, he makes the Boston Red Sox the NL Wild Card representative.
They meet the Yankees in the World Series. Each game takes 6 hours, and is announced by Joe Buck and Tim McCarver, who are joined in the booth by Kevin Millar, Joe Morgan, and Rob Dibble. Finally, the Yankees win. Derek Jeter, who did not have a hit the entire series, wins World Series MVP. He also wins AL MVP, NL MVP, a Gold Glove, and the Cy Young award.
During the offseason, the Giants and Braves are contracted, and Glenn Beck is elected president.
