US Presswire photo The Nationals didn't cross the plate nearly enough times this season. This season saw the Nationals win 80 games, a mark that left everyone happy and was reason to proclaim 2011 a success for this franchise. But how did they get to those 80 wins? How did they lose 81? And how…

US Presswire photo The Brewers probably fear Albert Pujols more than the squirrel. Man, what a postseason it's been so far. That game in Detroit that just ended was a true classic, with Justin Verlander throwing so many pitches, the only man on the planet unimpressed was Livan Hernandez. Now, for the nightcap in St.…

US Presswire photo Justin Verlander starts today with the Tigers' season hanging in the balance. The Texas Rangers have three shots to wrap up their second consecutive American League pennant, and if they pull that off, what an accomplishment for a franchise that had never previously made any noise in the postseason. The only AL…

US Presswire photo Mike Rizzo has made plenty of roster alterations since taking over as GM in 2009. Underneath all the hoopla surrounding Theo Epstein's move from the front office at Fenway Park to the front office at Wrigley Field lies one important caveat: No general manager can step into a new situation and completely…

US Presswire photo Albert Pujols was a man among boys in Game 2. This has become a postseason known for some pretty darn dramatic baseball. Unfortunately, it's also become a postseason known for some pretty annoying rain delays. First pitch for Game 4 of the ALCS in Detroit today was delayed more than two hours,…

US Presswire photo Jose Valverde closed out the Tigers' Game 3 victory. What a performance last night by the Detroit Tigers, who facing a must-win situation and all kinds of injuries seized control of Game 3 of the ALCS and beat the Texas Rangers, 5-2. Can they do it again? Injuries once again are the…

Ryan Zimmerman made an appearance in the CSN studios yesterday and took some time to talk on-air with Ivan Carter. The Nationals’ “Face of the Franchise” since he was drafted in 2005 had some interesting things to say about where this organization used to be and where it resides now in the NL East. Zimmerman…

US Presswire photo Nelson Cruz was again the hero for Texas in Game 2. Though the Rangers have stormed out to a 2-0 advantage in the ALCS, this has actually been a very competitive series. The Tigers certainly had a chance to win Game 2 last night in Arlington, only to squander some late opportunities…

US Presswire photo Jim Riggleman will interview for the Mets' vacant bench coach job today. Though Jim Riggleman knew he might never get a chance to manage again when he abruptly resigned from the Nationals in June over a contract dispute, he also knew he still had plenty of friends in the game who might…

US Presswire photo Prince Fielder's Game 1 homer catapulted the Brewers to victory. Game 1 of the NLCS was a slug fest practically from the moment Zack Greinke threw his first pitch of the afternoon. Ultimately, the Brewers pounded the Cardinals into submission, walking away with a 9-6 victory. Can Milwaukee do it again in…
