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…

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. Clearly, the Nats as currently constructed aren't on par…

US Presswire photo Nyjer Morgan will be a key figure in this series between intense rivals. This National League Championship Series features no shortage of star power. Pujols. Fielder. La Russa.

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…
