Playoff Prospectus: Angels versus Red Sox LDS

7

Christina Kahrl

It's a fourth spin in six years for these two teams, but will the outcome change this time around?

Well, this certainly seems familiar. One of the reliable features of a divisional playoff slate that involves twice as many ballclubs and wild-card teams makes for a few rematches, so it's not too much of a surprise that we get to see the Red Sox and Angels square off for a fourth time in six years in October. Perhaps it's the easy isolation of living in the Midwest, but there seems to be little of the overwrought provincial self-absorption for Angels fans, where they might deserve to be filled with equal parts trepidation and anticipation. Where the hysterics of Red Sox Nation would treat three series losses to the same opponent in five years in October-the very same opponent from the epic '86 ALCS no less-there seems to be no such elaborate attention devoted the equally desperate concerns of Angels fans for having to be the ones who have seen their team fight and falter before the Red Sox in those three LDS matchups. It can't be taken as too much of a surprise; no doubt there are Rangers fans still bitter over how their team was squashed thrice in four seasons by the Yankees in the late '90s, and no doubt Yankees fans, those East Coast sophisticates, were like so many crushers and enjoyed the stomping, and Red Sox fans are no doubt no different when it comes to their post-season entertainments.

Prospectus Today: Who Can Say No to Twins?

46

Joe Sheehan

Apparently not destiny, meaning we get another post-season with quality time in their dome home.

Sometimes, being both a fan and an analyst creates a conflict. For me, that has usually centered around my desire to be a credible writer and my lifelong love affair with the New York Yankees. This played out on these pages all through last year, the final season of the old Yankee Stadium, in moments such as the All-Star Game, where I wanted badly to cheer Mariano Rivera but couldn't because I was in the role of professional in that moment.

Prospectus Today: A Modest All-Star Proposal

Joe Sheehan

Fixing the bloated boxscores of the Midsummer Classic involves bring the match back to showcasing the game's stars.

Baseball's All-Star Game was once a cutthroat battle between two distinct and competitive entities, one of just two times all season that the leagues interacted. The game was played largely by the very best players in baseball, and those players often went the distance. If you wanted to see Babe Ruth face Carl Hubbell, or Bob Feller take on Stan Musial, or Warren Spahn pitch to Ted Williams, the All-Star Game was just about your only hope.

Prospectus Today: The Play

Joe Sheehan

Seeing something incredible, asking what's up with Joltless Joe's skippering, and too much Tomko?

The standard baseball clich is that if you go to a game, you'll always see something you've never seen before. This is true in the most literal sense, as no two games are exactly alike, and you'll often see, say, a player or pitcher you've never seen before. Often the new element is fairly mundane, or even ridiculous ("oh, look, it's Brett Tomko being brought into a critical situation"). Yesterday at Yankee Stadium, though... yesterday I saw something that's going to stick in my head for a long, long time.

Prospectus Q&A: George Thorogood

David Laurila

A famous rocker talks about one of his other great loves beyond music: baseball.

There are baseball fans, and then there is George Thorogood. An icon in the music world, Thorogood is not only a passionate Mets fan, he is also a walking-and-shouting baseball historian. A former second baseman with the semi-pro Delaware Destroyers, Thorogood has multiple gold records to go with his baseball pedigree, not to mention a reputation as one of the best live performers on the blues-and-rock circuit. About to hit the road for yet another tour, Thorogood shared his thoughts on performance-enhancing drugs, the brilliance of Sandy Koufax, and what it was like to talk baseball with the legendary John Lee Hooker.

You Could Look It Up: Called for Anticipation?

Steven Goldman

The game's history of post-season snafus merely has a new entry.

The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright-
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

-Lewis Carroll, "The Walrus and the Carpenter"

Just like it oughta be—the AL's best go head to head for the pennant.

It had to come to this, the league's two best teams from the league's strongest division, squaring off to see if the American League's going to stomp all over the National League one more time. The Rays as a representation of all that can be right about an organization on the way up, the Red Sox as a representation of all that can be right about an organization that already has it made. To extend the rhetoric to its most overstated, it's something fresh from the land of snowbirds and retirees going up against the newly-established evil empire. Whether as a matter of scouting, utilizing performance analysis, or how effectively they keep their players in action, these are two teams that attack every potential organizational problem with every management tool possible, matching their assemblages of playing talent on the field with exceptional talent off of it, in the dugouts, the executive suites, and the trainer's rooms. Every bit as much as the NLCS, this year's ALCS promises a tight, exciting, and hard-fought matchup.

The NLCS features two evenly-matched clubs, but how the managers line up their rotations could make all the difference.

The Phillies claimed their second NL East title in as many years by embarking on a 13-3 tear to end the season, once again storming past a shell-shocked Mets club. They made short work of the Brewers in the Division Series, and come into the Championship Series with arguably the most potent lineup of any of the four remaining teams along with the top starting pitcher in Cole Hamels.
