MLB playoffs: Giants vs. Phillies

Tonight the San Francisco Giants travel to Philadelphia to take on the defending National League Champion Phillies. Game 1 has been widely anticipated because of the pitching matchup between the Giants' Tim Lincecum and the Phillies' Roy Halladay. As Dave Sheinin wrote in our League Championship Series preview package: "The...

MLB playoffs: Yankees vs. Rangers Game 2

Today the Texas Rangers host the World Champion New York Yankees again. Game 2's starters are the Rangers' Colby Lewis (a former Washington National, briefly) and the Yankees' Phil Hughes. This matchup doesn't pack quite the same star power as some other LCS games, but as Dave Sheinin wrote in...

The not-exactly-out-on-a-limb LCS predictions

Yeah, no surprises here. I'm going Phillies over Giants, and Yankees over Rangers. I'm already on record as predicting a Phillies-Yankees World Series. And while I got three of the four Division Series right, the fact it will be the Rangers facing the Yankees, instead of Rays-Yankees, in the ALCS...

Cliff Lee has been on collision course with Yankees all year

Cliff Lee's nine-inning gem last night completed the best-pitched Division Series in history. Across the four series, pitchers produced an aggregate ERA of 2.63, the lowest since the three-tiered postseason came into existence in 1995. Batters in the first round combined to hit .218 with a .613 OPS -- which...

ALCS: First look at Rangers-Yankees

The Rangers are postseason neophytes, but they have at least one inevitability about October baseball figured out. "Normally," team President Nolan Ryan said, "you pretty much have to go through New York if you want to go somewhere past there." Maybe the current roster wouldn't know firsthand, but that, historically,...

One day later, Braves' Conrad back at work, but out of lineup

One night after his three errors sent the Atlanta Braves to a brutal loss and ensured his name would live forever in postseason infamy, Brooks Conrad tried hard to make Monday night feel like any other night at the ballpark. He signed autographs down the right field line in exchange...

Dominant pitching the story of postseason's opening week

It's not your imagination. The pitching in this postseason has been off the charts -- the latest examples coming last night, with Cole Hamels's complete-game shutout in the Philadelphia Phillies' clincher, and Jonathan Sanchez's 7 1/3-inning, 11-strikeout gem for the San Francisco Giants. So far in this postseason -- and...

MLB playoffs 2010: The Reds' last stand

The front-page headline of today's Cincinnati Enquirer reads, "It Ain't Over Yet," which is surely meant as a battle cry of resilience for the hometown team (It Ain't Over!), but, considering the Reds' opponent, reads more like a tacit admission of impending doom (Yet). Only five teams have come back...
