Baseball's regular season is 162 games long. Most playoff games start after 8:30 at night and stretch deep into the next morning. It all takes a whole lot of time. Me and the Wiz have decided to go in the other direction with our first-round baseball playoff preview - we are speeding things way up with our turbo guide to the first round. We were both assigned to sum up each series in one sentence...at least that's what was supposed to happen. Instead, the Wiz made his picks based on super in-depth analysis that went on forever and almost put me to sleep. In any case, keep reading to see who we picked and then make your own predictions in the comments below!
A broken nose and tough loss to the Oakland Raiders couldn’t keep New York Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez from encouraging middle school students to stay fit and eat healthy.

Are the Ravens AMAZING or TERRIBLE? Inconsistent performances early in the season often result in huge leaps up and down the power rankings, and this year is no different. Keep reading to see where your team landed after the first two crazy weeks of the season.
Let's get one thing straight right off the bat: Mariano Rivera is great. Amazing. Wonderful. A sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer. If time-traveling martians came to Earth and challenged the human race to a baseball game with world domination on the line, and we could choose any human being in the history of the universe to be the closer for the human team, it would undoubtedly be Mariano Rivera.
What I'm saying is Rivera is incredible. Get it? Got it? Good.
Maya Moore knows a thing or two about winning. At the University of Connecticut she led the Huskies women's basketball team a 150–4 record and two national championships from 2007–10. She didn't stop there. In her first year in the WNBA, Moore helped the Minnesota Lynx to a WNBA-best 27–7 record, earning the 2011 Rookie of the Year award.
This October, Moore will be extending her winning ways off the court by dishing an assist to the NBA Hoop Troop, a program that seeks to get kids involved in basketball. The Hoop Troop is holding a contest in which one grand-prize winner between the ages of six and 14 will get to take part in a basketball-themed shopping spree with Moore in her hometown of Atlanta. (For more information, visit NBAHoopTroop.com.) Moore clearly has her act together, but can she handle SIKIDS.com's 10 questions? Read on to find out!
