Wacha wins again.

It took the Tigers three hours and 56 minutes to win 1-0 in nine innings in the Saturday night game. Earlier in the day, St. Louis accomplished the same in two hours and 40 minutes.

October once again becomes the Beltran show, Greinke is great, and Mattingly makes mistakes.

Friday’s NLCS opener offered most of the qualities we want in a playoff game. An impressive pitching performance. Three big plays by a perennial postseason hero. A play at the plate to preserve a tie. Extra innings. A walk-off win. Ernie Johnson summed up Game One well when he called it “a top-step night,” even if it was more of a “lying in bed with my laptop” night where I was.

Will Justin Verlander pitch the Tigers past Boston?

The Detroit Tigers were founded in 1894. The Boston Red Sox were founded as the Boston Americans in 1901. Those two teams have shared a league for 112 years. Yet they have never, not once, not ever, met in a postseason series. That will change at Fenway Park on Saturday night.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Preview: Pirates at Cardinals

R.J. Anderson

The team that's been there the least goes up against the team that's been there the most.

Once the Cardinals clinched home-field advantage in the National League, we knew we'd see a NL Central tussle in the Division Series. What we didn't know, not until Tuesday night, was whether it would be the Reds or Pirates opposing the Cardinals. Now we know it's the Pirates, who put the Reds down easy behind Francisco Liriano and a multi-homer game from Russell Martin.

The Indians have the home field, but they also have a closer controversy, as these teams try to extend their seasons.

Who said the second Wild Card is bad for drama? The American League's postseason picture was not determined until Monday night's tiebreaker between the Rays and Rangers. The Rays won behind a strong performance from David Price, allowing them to advance to Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Indians. Here's what to expect from the pair of evenly matched teams.

A look at the monetary incentive players have to perform well in the postseason.

Incentive. At the workplace, it comes in many forms. For some, it’s merely being able to keep your job. In other cases, one can receive a pay bonus. So whether for Clark Griswold in Christmas Vacation or players in Major League Baseball, bonuses can be used as a carrot for performance.

For players in Major League Baseball, bonuses come in a host of different shapes and sizes. From signing to performance to awards, a player’s contract can have bonuses as a key element. One that often gets overlooked, however, centers on the postseason in the form of “shares.”
