  (Philadelphia source, so the emphasis is on the Philadelphia Union but the schedule for all teams seems to be there. Of course, the MLS website surely has this info as well)

Anyway, the playoffs begin Wednesday with the Wild Card playoffs, I could not even find the schedule over at Soccerway.  Pay attention to what is on TV, surely Fox Soccer will have some, maybe ESPN, ESPN2, the Spanish language channels Galavision, Univision and perhaps Telefutura could be carrying some games as well. Maybe the Championship game makes it to ABC.

I assume that the Wildcards will playoff against each other thus, the WCs are NY RedBull, Columbus Crew, FC Dallas and Colorado Rapids....

But perhaps out of those four teams two will advance because there are six seeded teams. Galaxy, Seattle, Real Salt Lake in the West, in the East, Sporting KC, Philadelphia Union and Houston Dynamo.
