US Presswire photo Second baseman Danny Espinosa impressed during his rookie season. Throughout the week, we'll be breaking down the Nationals' roster by position (catcher, infield, outfield, rotation and bullpen) and looking both where things stand at the end of the season and where things might stand moving forward.

US Presswire photo CC Sabathia returns to the mound tonight against Justin Verlander. We finally get that great CC Sabathia-Justin Verlander pitching matchup we've been waiting for … only three days after it was originally supposed to take place. Such was the effect of that rain-suspended Game 1 in the Bronx on Friday night. This,…

US Presswire photo The Rangers look to take two in a row from the Rays. David Price has done a lot of things in his brief career, but there's one important thing he's yet to do: beat the Rangers. The left-hander has made eight career starts against Texas (including two during last year's ALDS) and…

US Presswire photo Wilson Ramos established himself as the Nats' No. 1 catcher this season. Throughout the week, we'll be breaking down the Nationals' roster by position (catcher, infield, outfield, rotation and bullpen) and looking both where things stand at the end of the season and where things might stand moving forward.

Getty Images The shadows will again be a factor today at Miller Park. In previewing this series, I pointed out how much of a home-field advantage the Brewers have enjoyed this season, resulting in baseball's best home record. We saw that hold true yesterday during Milwaukee's 4-1 victory over the Diamondbacks, though another element I…

US Presswire photo Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Co. trounced the Tigers in Game 1 last night. So much for the idea that the Tigers would most benefit from Friday night's rainout in the Bronx because of their deeper rotation. While Yankees starter Ivan Nova dominated last night in the resumption of Game 1, Doug…

US Presswire photo The Yankee Stadium grounds crew has been kept busy the last two nights. When Game 1 of this series was suspended in the middle of the second inning last night, all the pundits immediately tried to figure out which team would benefit the most from the 24-hour rain delay.

US Presswire photo Kelly Shoppach was the surprise offensive hero of Game 1 for the Rays. They dominated Game 1 yesterday behind Matt Moore's seven shutout innings and Kelly Shoppach's surprising power. Now, the Rays look to take complete control of their division series against the Rangers in Game 2 tonight. Tampa Bay has to…

US Presswire photo Albert Pujols leads the red-hot Cardinals into Philadelphia. There's no understating what the St. Louis Cardinals managed to pull off over the season's final three weeks, winning 16 of their last 21 games to overtake the collapsing Atlanta Braves and seize the NL wild-card. And what's their reward for all that? A…
