  1. NLDS Game 3: Phillies at Cardinals

    Oct 4, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Cardinals fans are ready for Game 3 against the Phillies today. The Cardinals proved they could get to one of the Phillies' four aces Sunday night during Game 2 of the National League Division Series. Now, can they do it again? Cole Hamels will be on the mound for Philadelphia, looking to…

  2. ALDS Game 4: Rangers at Rays

    Oct 4, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo The Rangers try to close out the series today in St. Petersburg. This could prove to be quite a significant day across the baseball landscape. Games from all four division series are scheduled to be played, and three of those series could be wrapped up by day's end. (Only the Phillies and…

  3. Position analysis: Infield

    Oct 4, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    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. Today's position: Infield… 1B ADAM LaROCHEStats:…

  4. ALDS Game 3: Yankees at Tigers

    Oct 4, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    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,…

  5. ALDS Game 3: Rangers at Rays

    Oct 3, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    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…

  6. Position analysis: Catcher

    Oct 3, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    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. Today's position: Catcher……

  7. NLDS Game 2: Cardinals at Phillies

    Oct 3, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Citizens Bank Park erupted last night when Ryan Howard homered off Kyle Lohse. Why did the Phillies fork over $120 to Cliff Lee last winter? Because they wanted him on the mound for games like this. No pitcher on the planet has owned the postseason like Lee has since 2009, and that…

  8. NLDS Game 2: Diamondbacks at Brewers

    Oct 2, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    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…

  9. ALDS Game 2: Tigers at Yankees

    Oct 2, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    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…

  10. ALDS Game 1 (cont): Tigers at Yankees

    Oct 2, 2011, 12:30 AM EDT

    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. Prevailing wisdom suggested…
