On the impossibility of the Royals getting up from a drubbing like that.

OMFSM! The Giants not only won the pennant, but they completely dominated the Royals last night. Hard to believe, but in a game where both teams had such amazing momentum coming in (8-0 vs. pennant winning walk-off!) one of them actually lost the game. And call me a conspiracy theorist, but I personally think it might have had something to do with Madison Bumgarner, rather than some sort of government conspiracy.

Wrapping up the scores as we head into the final day of voting.

What a long strange journey it’s been. You and me, and these crazy IBAs.

Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.

Congratulations to Andrew Friedman, new President for Baseball Operationsfor the Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles (and shhhh don't tell anyone, but he's really the new GM). Can I just assume that readers of this website are familiar with his handiwork in Tampa Bay? If not, there's a book by some Expos fan who used to work here that gives a rough overview of the topic.

Discussing the AL Player of the Year race.

Standing amidst the freshly clipped outfield grass in anticipation of one’s first playoff game has to conjure up a mixture of excitement and nerves, as the two emotions see-saw for supremacy of their owner’s heart and mind. So it was, in 2014, for a former first round pick. Drafted in 2009, the outfielder might have lost his ethereal glaze but he can still fly, and did so, homering in the divisional series.

Can you believe the Cardinals have made it through so many postseasons without ever having luck, fortitude, or clutchness go against them? No, you can't.

Recapping Tuesday's managerial meltdowns, and a look at the NL Manager of the Year race.

Wellllll those were some doozies. Both NLDS matchups wrapped up last night and both featured some...interesting...decision making by the managers of the losing teams. In one corner we have Don Mattingly, who hit the panic button pre-game by opting to start Andre Ethier in center field over the admittedly struggling Yasiel Puig. In the other corner we have Matt Williams who seemed resolute in his decision to rest his best relievers for the next game, even if that game comes in Spring of 2015

A rant on Clayton Kershaw's postseasons statistics, and an update on the NL Pitcher of the Year race.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Last year it was the NLCS that had the Cardinals pushing the Dodgers to the brink of elimination, pushing Clayton Kershaw to win a do-or-die game in St. Louis. The same situation has come a round earlier in 2014, but once again the Dodgers turn to Kershaw in an elimination game in St. Louis.

A look back at Sunday's playoff action and a breakdown of the AL Pitcher of the Year race.

While it’s often said mockingly, James Shields stepped up on Sunday night and delivered a performance worthy of his nickname. The Royals No. 1 starter fired six innings of six-hit, two-run baseball, as the Royals closed out the Angels. Shields had predicted as much in the aftermath of the Royals improbable comeback victory in the Wildcard game.

Discussing the previous day's playoff action with a focus on the AL Manager of the Year award.

We’re in the midst of a two-day stretch that will grant us six playoff games. Times are good. Except if you’re Brad Ausmus, in which case times are handsome, if not great. The Orioles managed to win despite home runs from the Tigers 3-4-5 hitters and 7+ innings from Scherzer, which has to be concerning for the Tigers. Not only that but Baltimore piled on Detroit’s beleaguered bullpen, meaning Justin Verlander really has to go deep in tomorrow’s game, something that’s a lot less assured than it used to be.

A breakdown of the NL Player of the Year voting thus far, plus a cute kid.

Well, last night’s game wasn’t quite as arousing as the first play-in Wild Card game, but it certainly ended sooner. While Madison Bumgarner certainly pitched well, it’s hard to imagine that anyone could edge out the Player of the Game: That kid behind home who was absurdly adorable.

The adoring masses are finally updated as to the product of their democratic process. Focus on AL ROY.

Welcome to the first Internet Baseball Awards update. We’ll be refreshing you on the voting daily, with updated leaderboards as well as some commentary on each of the separate races, and if at all possible, the calling out of people who have made terrible life decisions based on their voting habits. There’s little chance that this matches the excitement of last night’s playoff game, but at the same time, there’s at least a 50% chance Cal Ripken offers more commentary.
