The Dodgers will open the playoffs on Wednesday against the Cubs, play two at Wrigley Field, then come home Saturday for game three and, if neither team sweeps, another game on Sunday. The Angels will host the Boston Red Sox in Anaheim of Los Angeles starting Wednesday. ESPN

Puzzler question: What one team in history has gotten into both the American League and National League playoffs? Answer after the jump.

Answer: The Milwaukee Brewers, of course. They won today (and the Mets lost) to reach the post-season for the first time since 1982, when the Brewers were an AL team. Thanks to The Griddle.
