Friday Links-N-Thinks

It's playoff baseball time and for the first time in the history of the game there will be a play-in game between the two wild card teams in each league. The Twins missed out on postseason play for the second year in a row but there are plenty of other story lines to watch in the coming weeks.

Can the Oakland A's continue their magical run?
Will former Twins slugger Jim Thome be able to capture his first title?
Are the Texas Rangers going to be able to recover after their collapse?
Is Kris Medlen really one of the best pitchers in the game?
Who can stop the St. Louis Cardinals from repeating?
What is going to stop 19-year old Bryce Harper from having his coming out party?

The list of things to watch could go on and on. But before the games get started, let's check out some of the top stories of the week from across the baseball world. Here's this week's edition of "Friday Links-N-Thinks."
My Weekly Rundown
Video of the Week: Scott Diamond got back to his Canadian roots this week while the Twins made a trip up north to play the Blue Jays. In his final start of the year and his first start in his native country, Diamond made a kick save on a ball back up the middle. It was a great year for the left-handed pitcher so this was a cool play to end the year
