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! This after postponing last night's scheduled Game 2 of the ALCS because of the threat of heavy rain all evening. Except, it never really rained. Go…

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 Justin Verlander leads the Tigers into Texas for the ALCS. If the rest of this month produces even half the drama we've seen in the last 10 days, this will go down as the greatest postseason in baseball history. Between the frantic final day of the regular season and then the three…

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. Or, at the very least, reach the Fall Classic for…

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…

US Presswire photo Drew Storen appeared in 73 games, saving 43 of them, in his first full 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 Yankee Stadium hosts the decisive fifth game of this division series. And so it has come to this: A do-or-die ballgame in the Bronx between the Yankees and Tigers, the winner advancing to face the Rangers in the ALCS, the loser trudging home for a long winter. It doesn't get much more…
