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.

The Giants come away with the longest game in postseason history.

This is the kind of game recap that needs two recaps. There were two separate stories that took place during the course of this historic game, the longest postseason game by time and one of the two longest postseason games by innings played. The first story was about the great pitching duel between Jordan Zimmermann and Tim Hudson. The second story was about eight innings of bullpen mastery or offensive futility (depending upon your point of view) that ended with a Brandon Belt blast in the top of the 18th. Both stories were woven together and made possible by a Drew Storen blown save that perhaps should never have happened.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Two Recap: Orioles 7, Tigers 6

4

Jeff Quinton

Once again, the Tigers suspect bullpen loomed large in a loss to the Orioles, but did their manager put them in the best position to succeed?

Game Two of the 2014 ALDS featured a lot of starting pitchers, at least as defined by their regular season roles. Wie-Yin Chen and Justin Verlander only pitched 3 2/3 and 5 innings respectively. As a result, each team went with a starting pitcher as their first pitcher out of the bullpen. All four pitchers (Chen, Verlander, Kevin Gausman, and Anibal Sanchez) pitched excellently their first time through the order. While Sanchez was pulled after facing six hitters, the other three all got to take a shot at their opponent’s lineup a second time and, in Verlander’s case, a thirds time. Those results were bad.

Raising Aces: Daniel Norris, the Debut Ante

0

Doug Thorburn

Daniel Norris looked strong in his first taste of the big leagues and still has room to grow.

The Blue Jays have opened up the coffers of their pitching-rich farm system in 2014. Marcus Stroman (the top prospect in the system preseason) has established himself as a rotation fixture while Aaron Sanchez (prospect no. two) may have found a home in the Toronto bullpen. The newest addition is left-hander Daniel Norris, ranked fourth in the organization entering the year (just missing the BP Top 101), and who bumped up to no. 33 in the BP mid-season rankings. Norris made his big-league debut on September 5th, and after four appearances out of the bullpen he was given his first big-league start, toeing the rubber at home against the Mariners in game number 159.

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.
