Now that we finally know who is playing where, when and against which team, the 2012 Major League Baseball playoffs can be the focus of the discussion. There is no more mystery, though we can argue for hours about why your favorite team will or will not win the World Series. 

This is one of the most interesting years because there are no great teams in baseball right now. All 10 teams in the playoffs have at least one flaw that that could end up being their undoing. 

Plus, there is a small changing of the guard, at least for one year, in baseball. Gone are the stalwart teams like Tampa Bay, Boston and Philadelphia. In are the newbies that have waited a long time to get here like Washington, Baltimore and Oakland. 

Variety is the spice of life, and this is one of the most unique collections of talent in a postseason in a long time. You have the old superstars like Derek Jeter, superstars still in their prime like Miguel Cabrera and future superstars like Bryce Harper. 

As we prepare for the new postseason format, we are going to take a look at the biggest question mark facing all 10 playoff teams to get you set for the action starting on Friday with the two Wild Card Games.
