The AL East being rather unceremoniously brushed aside

Im sorry but I cannot, and will not, abide by the slander of Raylan Givens

The real ALDS might have been the last two weeks of the season when the Rangers/Astros/Mariners were in a dogfight for the AL West and/or a Wild Card spot.

Looks like it just bounced higher than he thought it would.

Would like to see Wheeler get one more inning but who knows what Topper will do.

Phillies blew too many scoring chances.  Should have been up 8-0.

What a great game. Nice comeback by the Braves and unbelievable ending.

Should have stuck with Alvarado in the 8th rather than going to Hoffman.  Still say they blew the game by not getting more runs. And a couple of great defensive plays by Harris.

Agree. Especially with a couple lefty bats due up.

what's the right way to play that for Harper? Stand on second until he's sure it is either hitting the wall or being caught? Doesn't he have to score if that ball hits the wall? Or does he go halfway to 2nd and be prepared to chill at 3rd if Harris plays the ball off the wall well?
