there will be a quiz

The Associated Press tries to clarify the potential NL tiebreaking scenarios. God forbid a four-way tie:
If Colorado, New York and Philadelphia win Sunday and San Diego loses, all would finish 89-73. New York and Philadelphia would play the NL East tiebreaker Monday; the loser would play a three-team, two-day, wild-card tiebreaker with Colorado and San Diego on Tuesday and Wednesday. In that scenario, Colorado (the team with the best head-to-head record among the three teams in the wild-card tiebreaker) would get the choice of having a bye on Tuesday or playing both games at home.
Oh, and what's sad: the Mariners, 7 back in the AL West, coulda won the NL central.

Update: The Phillies won the NL East. Buh-bye, Mets. The Padres and Rockies will meet in a one-game playoff for the wild card spot.
