It'll all be on the line today, and MLB.com will have it all online in a new and unique way with Octoberquest LIVE.
With crucial games going on today that will affect the outcomes of the NL East, NL Wild Card and AL Central races, MLB.com's homepage will bring the glorious tension of the final weekend of the regular season to life on your computer monitor with BaseballChannel.TV providing continuous live streaming video of game coverage and analysis until 7:30 p.m. ET.
Octoberquest LIVE will be a daylong joyride through baseball's Super Saturday of games, as studio host Justin Kutcher will be joined by Ed Randall, Seth Everett and Pete McCarthy at the microphone as your tour guides for this exciting day of baseball.
Throughout the day, MLB.com's homepage will feature live video content from the four day games that promise to impact all three ongoing races -- the Marlins-Mets game at Shea Stadium, Cubs-Brewers at Miller Park, Royals-Twins at the Metrodome and Nationals-Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Coverage also will set the scene for Saturday night's Indians-White Sox matchup that will affect the AL Central race.
Going into today's games, the Phillies could clinch the NL East win a win or a Mets loss, and the Brewers could clinch the NL Wild Card with a win and a Mets loss.
And you could see it all take shape on Octoberquest LIVE.
The unprecedented live streaming video program will include highlights and live look-ins, discussion between the studio panel and MLB.com reporters in the field and video reports from Citizens Bank Park, Shea Stadium and the Metrodome.

You can't miss it -- not only because it's the best day of baseball you could imagine but also because this exclusive live Internet broadcast looking at all of the day's activities as teams race to the playoffs will be right out front on MLB.com all day long. The video can be viewed directly on the homepage using Microsoft Silverlight
