US Presswire photo Nelson Cruz's homer helped lead the Rangers to victory in Game 1. Hey, what do you know, they're actually going to play baseball today in Texas!

US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg could be a playoff ace, but the Nats would need more pitching. While watching some absolutely thrilling postseason baseball over the last 10 days, I can't help but wonder how far away the Nationals are from competing alongside these October contenders.

US Presswire photo Roy Halladay faces Chris Carpenter in an epic pitchers' duel. As the Phillies have assembled their star-laden roster over the last year — signing Cliff Lee, trading for Hunter Pence — they had one clear goal in mind: Win another World Series.

US Presswire photo Yovani Gallardo hopes to pitch the Brewers into the NLCS. Rarely does a postseason series play to form the way this one has. The Brewers won Games 1 and 2 at home. The Diamondbacks won Games 3 and 4 at home. So the question tonight is: Will the pattern hold? Milwaukee, as…
