File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Great American Ball Park hosts its first-ever postseason game tonight. The postseason hasn't been in Cincinnati since 1995, back when the Reds still played at Riverfront Stadium, Barry Larkin was the starting shortstop and Jim Bowden was the GM. Yeah, it's been a while. And the return…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Giants and Braves resume their NLDS today at Turner Field. This is the only of the four Division Series that was tied after two games, and thus the only series that can't end in Game 3. So today's game at Turner Field isn't about wrapping up…

Photo courtesy Texas Rangers The Rays try to keep their season going today at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. There may have not been a more mysterious team in baseball this season than the Tampa Bay Rays, who wound up with the American League's best record but at times looked as weak as any club in…

Photo courtesy New York Yankees The Twins must win or be eliminated tonight at Yankee Stadium. All that worry about the Yankees' thin rotation and the problem of having to start all three starters on short rest? It can be a moot point if the Bronx Bombers can finish off the Twins tonight and sweep…

Photo courtesy Texas Rangers The Rangers look to sweep the series today at The Ballpark in Arlington. I'm not sure even the most ardent of Texas Rangers supporters could have seen this one coming: Their team has a chance to sweep the Tampa Bay Rays with a win today in Game 3 of their American…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Tommy Hanson faces Matt Cain in Game 2 at AT&T Park. Just how dominant was Tim Lincecum last night? Well, his 14 strikeouts were the third most in postseason history, surpassed only by Bob Gibson's 17 strikeouts in Game 1 of the 1968 World Series and Roger…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER After getting no-hit in Game 1, the Reds try to bounce back tonight at Citizens Bank Park. How do you recover from getting no-hit in the playoffs? It's not like we have a large sample of previous instances to base our predictions on. Until Roy Halladay no-hit…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Danny Espinosa hadn't played above Class A this time last year. At the conclusion of any baseball season, it's common to want to look forward, to figure out how a club's roster might change between now and spring training. And obviously that's a worthy endeavor. You want to…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Braves and Giants kick off their series at AT&T Park. Five games have already been played this postseason. We've seen a no-hitter. We've seen a couple of managers ejected. We've seen a 10-strikeout game. And we've seen the road team win four of those five games.…

Photo courtesy Minnesota Twins The Twins are essentially in must-win mode tonight at Target Field. It's not that the Twins can't take a lead against the Yankees in the postseason. They've done it seven straight times over the last six years. It's just that they can't hold any lead against New York, resulting in seven…
