Who gets to play the Royals?

Here's where we all get to root, hope, pull, root, root, and root for the San Francisco Giants to knock the filthy St. Louis Cardinals out of the playoffs altogether.

Aces abound in tonight's game, as Madison Bumgarner takes the hill for the Giants opposite Adam Wainwright of St. Louis, and with their backs against the wall, the Cardinals may tap their bevy of talented arms to help them stay alive.

They're all hoping for the chance to take on the Kansas City Royals in the World Series, of course, which is still a statement I find completely absurd.
