Wacha Wacha Wacha! If you didn’t know the name of RHP Michael Wacha before this week, you sure as heck do now. This kid has been lights out here in the playoffs, and he now has been named the MVP of the NLCS. All Wacha did in two games against one of the best teams in baseball and against the Cy Young Award winner in LHP Clayton Kershaw was throw 13.2 shutout innings, allowing seven hits and two walks in those outings. Wacha has been a stud in these playoffs, and the argument could be made that he should be starting Game 1 against the Red Sox in the World Series. We won’t go that far yet, because RHP Adam Wainwright is certainly well rested having only had to pitch one game against the Dodgers. This series was always going to be won by St. Louis right out of the blocks, as it won the first two games and never looked back. These Cards are legit, and they might be the favorites in the Fall Classic to get their 12th World Series ring in franchise history.

Game 163 (AL Wild Card Tiebreaker)
Monday 9/30, 8:07 PM – Rays 5 @ Rangers 2 (TB Wins AL Wild Card)

LHP David Price was masterful on Monday night against a team that was expected to give him fits. He threw nearly 120 pitches to get arguably his most important win of his career, taking down the Rangers without really getting into too many tough jams. 3B Evan Longoria had three hits on the night, including the two-run homer that Texas never really fully recovered from. The Rangers are now going into the offseason wondering if Manager Ron Washington is going to still be with the team, while Tampa Bay advances to take on the Indians on Wednesday night.

NL Wild Card Playoff Game
Tuesday 10/1, 8:07 PM – Reds 2 @ Pirates 6 (PIT Wins NL Wild Card)

If you haven’t seen the video of the fans forcing Johnny Cueto to drop the baseball on the mound, you need to watch it. The next pitch was the home run that probably sealed the deal in the game. Pittsburgh’s fans were nuts as we expected at PNC Park, and they did such a massive job of helping out their hometown team, it isn’t even funny. We haven’t seen a home field advantage like this is the playoffs in quite some time, and we know that this is the key to keeping the Pirates alive in the playoffs as long as possible. The crowd clearly got under the skin of the Reds, and that’s why they’re going home early.

AL Wild Card Playoff Game
Wednesday 10/2, 8:07 PM – Rays 4 @ Indians 0 (TB Wins AL Wild Card)

It looked to be a day where Danny Salazar was going to declare himself the next great Indians pitcher, but that mark only really lasted for a couple innings. When Delmon Young rode a high fastball well over the wall in left field to give Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead, that was all the help that the team needed. The Tribe had their chances against Alex Cobb, but to his credit, he pitched a heck of a game and got himself out of every jam that he was in. Tampa Bay has now won back to back elimination games, and it’s time to ship off to Boston, where the hated Red Sox are waiting and licking their chops for a big time game.

Game 1: Friday 10/4, 3:00 ET – Rays 2 @ Red Sox 12 (BOS Leads Series 1-0)
Game 2: Saturday 10/5, 5:30 ET – Rays 4 @ Red Sox 7 (BOS Leads Series 2-0)

Game 4: Tuesday 10/8, 8:30 ET – Red Sox 3 @ Rays 1 (BOS Wins Series 3-1)

The Rays had a chance in this series, but the truth of the matter is that they were overmatched for the most part. They kicked the ball around in the outfield quite a bit, and though they weren’t helped out by a lot of calls from a shaky umpiring crew, they weren’t able to come up with the big hits when they needed them either. The Boston bullpen was flawless outside of a home run by C Jose Lobaton that won Game 3, while the Rays were a disaster in the pen the whole series. The Red Sox scored more runs in their four games of this series than any other team did in the LDS, and heck… they scored almost as many runs in one game as any other team did in the LDS as well! This is a team that can really mash the baseball, and all of the awesome base running by men like OF Jacoby Ellsbury and OF Shane Victorino is really putting pressure on teams. This won’t be an easy team to knock out of the playoffs.

ALDS: Full Detroit Tigers vs. Oakland Athletics Series Schedule

Game 1: Friday 10/4, 9:30 ET – Tigers 3 @ Athletics 2 (DET Leads Series 1-0)
Game 2: Saturday 10/5, 9:00 ET – Tigers 0 @ Athletics 1 (Series Tied 1-1)
Game 3: Monday 10/7, 1:00 ET – Athletics 6 @ Tigers 3 (OAK Leads Series 2-1)
Game 4: Tuesday 10/8, 5:00 ET – Athletics 6 @ Tigers 8 (Series Tied 2-2)
Game 5: Thursday 10/10, 9:00 ET – Tigers 3 @ Athletics 0 (DET Wins Series 3-2)

Second verse, same as the first. What the A’s are finding out is that they don’t have the ace pitcher that can shut down a series the way that the Tigers have RHP Justin Verlander. Verlander was flat out awesome in this series. He might have been beaten in Game 2, but he still has allowed just one run in four starts against the A’s here in the playoffs over the course of the last two seasons. Oakland hosted Game 5 in both cases, but in both games, Verlander came up with a shutdown performance. The Athletics will look at Game 1 as the missed opportunity. They went through more than two full games without allowing a single run to the Tigers, yet they were down 1-0 after one game and were lucky to still be in the series after four games. Once the Detroit bats got going again with eight runs in Game 4, it was all over.

NLDS: Full Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves Series Schedule

Italics Denote If Necessary Games
Game 1: Thursday 10/3, 8:30 ET – Dodgers 6 @ Braves 1 (LA Leads Series 1-0)
Game 2: Friday 10/4, 6:00 ET – Dodgers 3 @ Braves 4 (Series Tied 1-1)
Game 3: Sunday 10/6, 8:00 ET – Braves 6 @ Dodgers 13 (LA Leads Series 2-1)
Game 4: Monday 10/7, 9:30 ET – Braves 3 @ Dodgers 4 (LA Wins Series 3-1)

Manager Don Mattingly gets all of the credit in the world for making the right choice with his starting pitching in this series. LHP Clayton Kershaw looked him in the face and said, “I’ve got the ball in Game 4,” and though he left in a suspect situation, the decision paid off, as the game was won and the series was clinched. Kershaw proved that he is a man on a mission this year, and no team looked more impressive in our eyes in the opening round of the playoffs than LA did. Five men pounded out six hits in the series, and OF Carl Crawford hit three of the seven home runs in the four games. Atlanta was overmatched from the get go, and it almost seemed like winning Game 2 was a bit of a farce as well, as that game easily could have gone the other way had the Dodgers not made a blunder on the base paths in the ninth inning.

NLDS: Full Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals Series Schedule

Game 1: Thursday 10/3, 5:00 ET – Pirates 1 @ Cardinals 9 (STL Leads Series 1-0)
Game 2: Friday 10/4, 1:00 ET – Pirates 7 @ Cardinals 1 (Series Tied 1-1)
Game 3: Sunday 10/6, 4:30 ET – Cardinals 3 @ Pirates 5 (PIT Leads Series 2-1)
Game 4: Monday 10/7, 3:00 ET – Cardinals 2 @ Pirates 1 (Series Tied 2-2)
Game 5: Wednesday 10/9, 5:00 ET – Pirates 1 @ Cardinals 6 (STL Wins Series 3-2)

The Pirates gave it everything that they had, but when they only scratched out one hit in Game 4 of this series with RHP Michael Wacha on the mound, it was all over but the crying. As was the case in the regular season, there was never really all that much of a chance for the Pirates to overcome the Cardinals in the end, and the better team ultimately prevailed. The Cards didn’t amass a ton of hits, but they got the clutch ones that mattered, and they rode their ace to easy wins in Game 1 and the decisive Game 5. The penalty is that RHP Adam Wainwright won’t be available until Game 3 of the NLCS, but you take what you can get, and it’s better to live to fight another day. Pittsburgh has nothing to be ashamed of for this year, as just the ability to go on to play 168 games over the course of the season was very refreshing after two decades of losing baseball.

Game 7: Sunday 10/20, 8:00 ET – Tigers (Verlander) @ Red Sox (Lackey) (FOX) (If Nec)

The Tigers and the Red Sox have both been phenomenal over the course of this series, and when this one is said and done with, it is going to go down as one of the most remarkable series that we have ever seen. There have already been a pair of 1-0 games, there was a 5-1 lead that was blown in the final six outs of a game, and a 4-0 lead was nearly squandered. Now, the Tigers are left on the road with their two best pitchers that have to win the two biggest games of the season against the Red Sox. Boston has been badly overmatched in the starting pitching department, but shockingly, it was LHP Jon Lester that was outpitched in Game 1, while both RHP Max Scherzer and RHP Justin Verlander were beaten in Games 2 and 3. The Detroit bullpen hasn’t been remarkable, and that has probably been the difference in the series. There are some issues for sure to be worked out in Boston’s pen as well, but if the team keeps hitting like this and manages to get the job done to not blow leads, it’ll be blood, sweat, and beards in the Fall Classic this year.
