Major League Baseball released the umpire assignments for the Wild Card Games and the Division Series last night. As always, the basis for these assignments is a proprietary, scientific calculation undertaken by Major League Baseball, mixing in (a) skill; (b) seniority; and (c) trolling of baseball fans who only know the names of umpires they dislike.

Except this year they seemed to keep their trolling at a minimum. No Joe West. No Angel Hernandez. They must be saving them for the LCS and World Series. Or at least we can only hope.

Here are the assignments:
