Photo courtesy Texas Rangers Will the Rangers clinch tonight or will the Yankees force Game 7 in Arlington? The Rangers couldn't close out the ALCS two nights ago in the Bronx, so now they get a chance to clinch their first pennant on home turf. Rangers Ballpark in Arlington should be rocking tonight for Game…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Giants can win the pennant tonight at AT&T Park. Since their Game 1 showdown, everyone has been looking forward to the rematch between Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum. But who out there imagined this Game 5 showdown between aces would have the NL pennant on the…

Bryce Harper nearly capped his first appearance in the Arizona Fall League in truly grand fashion. In the end, the Nationals’ 18-year-old phenom had to settle for a two-run double and not a grand slam that would have turned his already-hyped Fall League debut into something really spectacular. Facing some premier older prospects who are…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Phillies try to knot the NLCS up at 2-2 this evening at AT&T Park. In previewing this series last week, I suggested tonight's Game 4 could be the pivotal juncture. My reasoning? As good as the Phillies' top three starters are, Joe Blanton doesn't measure up.…

The Texas Rangers could be celebrating their first-ever American League pennant by sundown. Stop and let that one soak in for a few minutes. Up 3-1 over the Yankees in the ALCS, the Rangers need only…

Yesterday's announcement by the Nationals that Mike Rizzo has been given a five-year contract extension and bump in title was at both times unsurprising and a bit head-scratching. On the one hand, it makes perfect sense. With the franchise in a much more stable situation now than it was two years ago when Rizzo took…

Photo courtesy New York Yankees New York needs a win tonight at Yankee Stadium to avoid falling in a 3-1 series hole. The Yankees and their fans have been dreading a possible A.J. Burnett postseason start for quite a while now. Well, it's happening tonight, and there's no turning back now. This series very likely…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER AT&T Park hosts Game 3 between the Phillies and Giants. The Phillies and Giants resume the NLCS this afternoon in San Francisco, with Cole Hamels facing Matt Cain in yet another stellar pitching matchup in a postseason already filled with plenty of others. I'm not going to…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Ryan Zimmerman has always had a flair for the dramatic. Could he do it in October? It seems safe to say that the 2010 postseason will be remembered as the Postseason of Cliff Lee. Unless it's the Postseason of Roy Halladay. Or the Postseason of Tim Lincecum. October…
