And now, a little normalcy for the 2020 MLB postseason in the form of the Division Series.

The ALDS features two intriguing matchups that will rekindle longstanding feuds in the East and West. The Yankees and Rays got nasty with one another this season, with suspensions levied and benches clearing in August, leading to Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash threatening to unleash a "stable of guys who throw 98" on the Bombers. Tampa Bay plowed through the AL East, winning its first division crown since 2010, and then dispatched the Blue Jays in the Wild Card Series. The hot-and-cold Yanks took care of Cleveland in the first round.

  MLB playoff schedule 2020: Full bracket, dates, times, TV channels for every series The MLB postseason is back and weirder than ever. Here's the complete 2020 MLB playoff schedule, including TV channels and start times from the Wild Card Series to the World Series.The 2020 MLB playoffs are here, with the World Series heading to Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. But before two teams vie for a world championship, 16 will take the field in an expanded playoff picture that kicks off on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

The other AL series features a battle of West Division rivals, the A's and Astros, and this one should also be a doozy. The A's will throw Mike Fiers — the former Astro who blew the lid off the Houston cheating scandal — while Carlos Correa and the rest of the lineup will look to exact a little revenge this coming week.

Division rivals will clash in the NLDS, as well.

In one series, the top-seeded Dodgers will take on the Padres in the postseason for the first time. LA won the 2020 season series 6-4. No. 4 San Diego came back from a game down to eliminate the Cardinals in an intense Wild Card Series. The Dodgers swept the Brewers in two.

In the other series, the Braves and Marlins will square off in a showdown of East teams. Atlanta and Miami have had their battles over the years, most recently Jose Urena vs. Ronald Acuna Jr. The Braves had the advantage on the field in 2020, winning six of 10 matchups. The Marlins, however, are coming off a surprise Wild Card Series sweep of the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Atlanta shut down Cincinnati in a two-game sweep.
