With their backs against the wall, will the Cubs find a way to stop the Mets--the Mets!--from stealing wild on them?

The Blue Jays will try to overcome history; the Cubs will try to overcome HISTORY.

You can bet Ned Yost will be more aggressive about getting his bullpen in there to relieve Edinson Volquez in the much less forgiving environment of the Rogers Centre. I mean, you’ll probably lose if you do, but there are people who will take any bet for the right odds.

The Blue Jays' afternoon started with a cliff and ended with a Pennington.

Game Four of the American League Championship Series between the Blue Jays and Royals was over before an out was recorded.

Baseball Therapy: Say You'll Remember Me

5

Russell A. Carleton

Exploring how much a bad outing affects a reliever the next day--and whether managers should be changing their routines based on it.

Watching a playoff game should count as aerobic exercise. You should seriously be able to go to your doctor and said “I know that you told me to go run a couple miles per week, doc, but it’s October and I’m a baseball fan.” And your doctor should simply nod. Everything is so important. Things that wouldn’t even register during the regular season get picked apart and rehashed and they get your heart racing, particularly if you’re a fan of one of the two teams playing. And there’s good reason for that. Because we’ve now entered the League Championship Series section of the competition, one little decision might be the difference between a trip to the World Series and a trip to the trivia challenge bin. (Quick, name the two losing teams in 2013's LCSs without looking…)

The predictably strong Blue Jays offense was strong; but, just as importantly, the predictably exceptional Blue Jays center fielder fielded center field.

Every season, it seems as though some fielder just appears from thin air, as if created to fill a void we didn’t even know existed. A pair of Kevins—one, Kevin Kiermaier, well publicized; the other, until roughly this week, still fairly anonymous—filled this gap in 2015. The Kevins ran down flyballs and popups and crashed into walls, as in the first result to a Google of “Kevin Pillar catches”:

The Cubs try to get back in, while the Royals try to regain control.

After taking the first two games in New York, the Mets will try to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the NLCS while the Cubs will try to get back into the series with a win at Wrigley Field. Game Three features what looks like a pitching mismatch on paper, with Jacob deGrom (4.5 WARP) taking the hill for New York against Cubs’ hurler Kyle Hendricks (2.5 WARP). Despite the possible pitching gap, PECOTA favors the Cubs to win their first game of the series, but in order for that to happen Chicago’s heralded lineup is going to have to get back on track against yet another 95+ mph flamethrower.

The starters who clinched their teams' Game Fives are back.

Johnny Cueto hasn’t pitched an important game on the road since NL Wild Card 2013, in which the Pirates knocked him around and the fans (probably? Maybe?) got deep inside his head. He’ll try to manage the moment better this time, in Toronto. The Blue Jays have to be relieved to have escaped the bat-flip buzzkill that is Kauffman Stadium, and come home to the fly-ball-friendly Rogers Centre.

Cubs might feel foresaken, but they can even the series up with a win in Game Three.

The Royals take a 2-0 lead, which one might consider describing as a commanding lead but for it being one loss away from one calling it a fragile lead.

Thirteen months ago, the Royals and Blue Jays had baseball's longest postseason droughts. Now, they play for a trip to the World Series.

After competing over the final month to see who would have home-field advantage in this series—Kansas City won that battle—the Blue Jays and Royals now square off to see who'll head to the World Series.
