Welcome to the Carnival of Twenty Something Finances – MLB Playoffs Edition. This is my first time hosting a carnival and I’ve decided to throw some of my own personal flair into it by using the MLB Playoffs as my theme. Even though my favorite team (Braves) didn’t make the playoffs, I can still root for my second favorite team (whoever is playing the Yankees).
To parallel the MLB Playoffs I’ll pick 8 articles for the division series, 4 articles for the championship series, 2 articles for the World Series and 1 article for the champion. Enjoy.
