    So if the Jays end up hosting the wild card games what time are the games going to start? I would assume the early games, is there any indication at what time those will be?

    Really will depend on who they are playing, there is no way it would be the earliest game if it's against the Mariners, thus having in at 9:30/10 am on the west coast. As of right now all the wild card games will be east/central time with two west-coast in the mix, so it will be interesting.

    I would guess the start time would be somewhere between 12pm and 4pm

    In 2020 the four AL Wild Card game times were 2, 3, 5 and 7 pm eastern. The 3 pm game was at Oakland, so noon locally. If it goes along this line I would think it will be 3 pm for the Jays. Based on the current match ups as of today, I predict Ray at Indians 2 pm, Mariners at Blue Jays 3 pm, Phillies at Cardinals 5 pm and Padres at Mets 7 pm. Could see a few adjustments based on broadcast desires.

    I donít think the times will be like that. I think itíll be more along the lines of:

    12-3-6-8 or 1-3-5-8 something like that.

    I guess we will see in a few days

    Whatever time is the least desirable in terms of television ratings is when the Jays will play. Dan Shulman said as much during the broadcast.

    Canadian viewers don't count towards ESPN's ratings, and the Jays don't have Ohtani or Judge or someone that ESPN can market to US audiences (Vlad isn't there yet), so they are not going to prioritize the Jays when filling out the time slots. If it's Jays/Tampa, then prepare for a 12:30 pm EST timeslot. If it's Jays/Mariners, then one would think they'll at least throw a bone to Seattle fans and start it at 3:30-4 PM EST (at the earliest) so it's a reasonable time on the west coast.

    If the Mets have to play in the WC round, then NY is definitely going to get the prime time slot given its market size. Then on the other side they'll have Pujols in St. Louis, so that will get attention too. It's the AL games that are going to be a bore for most of America since it will involve a Canadian team, two smaller market teams that can barely get 10k into their own stadiums, and the Mariners who if J-Rod plays might be the only team that a national audience in the US would care about given how long of a drought they had. The AL games are going to get the shit time slots.

    Jays will get the less desirable time for sure. I'm sure the game on Friday, so many tickets will be available on StubHub less than the Blue Jays box office if it's a 12:30PM start time.

    I would generally agree, but donít forget that first Jays/Tampa game in 2020 was at 7pm so you never know
