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.

Going Yard: Cage Work

6

Ryan Parker

Our resident hitting coach gives us the details on what type of work hitters should do in the cage, both physically and mentally.

I love my job. When I’m not writing for Baseball Prospectus or at the ballpark in standard issue jeans, polo shirt, and Accusplit, you can find me in a batting cage. Specifically cage four of the facility I’m lucky enough to work at ECBA (cage 4 is the one closest to the fans— got to stay cool). First thing you’d notice is that I’m probably already hitting off a tee. No you’re not late, but hitting off a tee is my yoga and has kept my sanity intact. Whenever I start working with hitters I have them run through a quick stretch then get about 10-20 practice swings off the tee.

In the midst of the playofss, the Orioles extend their shortstop to a seemingly sensible deal.

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

Ben, Sam, and Zachary Levine discuss whether the postseason is too unpredictable and then break down the managerial decisions from two decisive NLDS games.

The Nats had the pitching advantage on paper -- again -- but they lost -- again, and some odd bullpen maneuvering by Matt Williams certainly didn't help.

At the beginning of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants, it seemed that some were overestimating the Nationals and underestimating the Giants (you can perhaps include me in this group, as I predicted that the Nats would sweep the Giants). When this series is looked back at in a few years – if we remember it at all – it is entirely possible that the opposite will occur, and we will underestimate how close this series was. After four games, the Nationals and Giants played 45 innings, scored nine runs apiece and were evenly matched throughout. Yet it was the Giants who walked away not only with a victory but a victory in a mere four games.

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.

Playoff Prospectus: PECOTA Odds and Tuesday Previews

6

Sahadev Sharma and Doug Thorburn

The Dodgers put their ace on the mound on three days' rest in a must-win game, and the Nats hope that having the pitching edge finally leads to a win and a Game Five.

The Dodgers face an elimination game and have the best pitcher in baseball taking the mound for them on three days' rest. Here is a look at the PECOTA odds and projected lineups for Game Four of the NLDS.
