Playoff Prospectus: NLCS Game Five: One Away from Elimination

13

Derek Carty

Sloppy defense does the Brewers in, putting Milwaukee at a 3-2 disadvantage.

With the NLCS tied at 2-2, we had the makings of a pitchers’ duel, as the Cardinals’ sinkerballing lefty Jaime Garcia opposed Zack Greinke, former AL Cy Young winner. While Garcia looked downright dominating through most of the game, Greinke did not, allowing seven hits and failing to notch a single strikeout.

Playoff Prospectus: That Escalated Quickly

5

Jay Jaffe

While the starters for the Brewers and Cardinals got off to a slow start, the offenses did not in Game One.

Zack Greinke versus "phony" Chris Carpenter. Tony Plush, er, Nyjer Morgan versus "Alberta" Pujols. A showcase for the coming winter's two top free-agent first basemen. A rematch of the 1982 World Series. A good old-fashioned NL Central grudge match featuring the league's top two slugging teams, and six of the league's top 13 sluggers according to slugging percentage. This year's National League Championship Series between the "Beast Mode" Brewers and the more staid Cardinals does not lack for storylines, tough talk, or the potential for fireworks. On Sunday afternoon, the two teams produced plenty of the latter, albeit without the sideshows we'd been led to expect. After falling behind early, the Brewers used a two-pitch sequence to break the game open in the fifth inning, with Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder each plating a pair of runs in the space of a few moments. Behind their big bats and their bullpen, the Brewers took Game One, 9-6.

A look ahead at the NLCS match-up between the Brewers and Cardinals

With a thrilling Game 5 victory on Friday night, the Cardinals advanced to their first National League Championship Series since 2006, when they wound up winning the World Series. The square-off between Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay was so hyped up and oversaturated with storylines that it felt odd to realize the pair exceeded the high expectations put before them.

Manufactured Runs: When La Russa Should Pinch-Hit

11

Colin Wyers

If Game 3 is any guide, the Cardinals skipper needs a refresher course

The Cardinals and Phillies are playing the last game of their Division Series tomorrow, with each team’s ace (Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay) taking the mound. The game—and thus the series—may very well be settled by which team’s ace pitches better. But it might just come down to which team’s manager has the audacity to sit his ace down on the bench.

One game this series has already been strongly influenced by a decision to pinch-hit (or not) by each manager—Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia struck out with runners on first and second to end the sixth inning in Game Three, then stayed in to allow a three-run homer to Phillies pinch-hitter Ben Francisco in the seventh.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Game Three: Phillies Take a 2-1 Lead

13

Ben Lindbergh

The series' first true pitcher's duel just barely goes the Phillies' way.

Neither Roy Halladay nor Cliff Lee quite lived up to his billing in the first two games of the Phillies-Cardinals Division Series—Halladay because he failed to throw a no-hitter, and Lee because he allowed a season-high 12 hits—but after two games in which runs weren't especially scarce, Game Three gave us the pitcher's duel that every Phillies playoff game has the potential to be. Both Cole Hamels and Jaime Garcia were completely in control far most of the game, with Garcia surrendering just three singles through the sixth, thanks in part to smooth fielding from Rafael Furcal and David Freese, and Hamels nearly as successful in keeping runners off base, though he allowed two doubles to Albert Pujols (which has been known to happen to the best of pitchers).

Fantasy Beat: Spring Hurlers

10

Craig Brown

A few pitchers had very strong springs, and Craig has the details on which ones matter during the regular season.

Fantasy season opens tomorrow, but it’s not too late to consider a couple of starting pitchers who enjoyed strong springs. This article is a complimentary piece to last week’s look at the hot hitters of spring. Almost all of us have drafted our teams for the year, but these pitchers may warrant either a waiver pickup or a trade offer as we prepare for the season to start.

Checking the Numbers: The Second Tier

Eric Seidman

A rundown of the starting pitchers from both leagues who have been just a tick below the level of greatness this season.

In addition to being a baseball nut, I consider myself to be a movie buff. I used to work somewhat in the field and just love taking breaks from reality to watch Schwarzennegger make silly puns after beatings, Lee J. Cobb make his patented scowl, or even the wide array of characters that Richard Jenkins and Stephen Tobolowsky can play with ease. While thinking of all the wonderful pitching performances that have been on display this year, these two passions collided, and I was taken back to the 1994 Academy Awards. In that year’s ceremony—technically, it was held in 1995 to honor the movies of 1994—the best picture went to Forrest Gump.

The favorite Cardinals must chase down the Reds to repeat as NL Central champions, along with news and notes from around the majors.

The Cardinals were considered to have the easiest road to a division title when the season began. PECOTA pegged them to win the National League Central by nine games. Furthermore, the Cardinals were universally picked to repeat as division champions by all the pre-season publications.
