MLB Playoffs 10/05/2017

Red Sox/Astros: Two nights ago, we saw an epic fail on my end, in assuming that most of the young players would fold under pressure at the plate. This was far from the case, as Eddie Rosario smashed a 2 run bomb in the first inning in his first At Bat ever in a Postseason game, causing the first five under to ultimately lose in the very first inning. Today in the AL, we have a bit of a different situation, as the Boston Red...

Razor MLB American League Wild Card

Twins/Yankees: As a baseball fan, this is what we long for all season, and we are finally here in the Postseason. I have mentioned this before, but I prefer to analyze the playoffs with caution, and my plays will come few and far between from here on out. Today, we have an interesting single game elimination American League Wild Card matchup between the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees. One of the more stand out features...

Padres/Giants: Under normal circumstances right now, the matchup between the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants will feature a battle between the two bottom teams of the NL West, and two of the worst teams in baseball. Today however, we have a story which will make this game more than simply just a waste of stadium use. Long time veteran and former Giants Ace Matt Cain will be pitching in the final game of his career....

Mets/Phillies: As the season’s end draws near, the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies will conclude disappointing seasons, and look forward to how they can improve next year. Though nothing much was expected of the Phillies this season, the Mets were a major disappointment as they tailed off heavily in 2017 after making the playoffs in consecutive prior seasons, including a World Series final in 2015. Somehow...

Razor’s MLB 9/28/2017

Reds/Brewers: This division series between the Cincinnati Reds and the Milwaukee Brewers has had its significance, as yesterday’s 6-0 loss was a devastating one for Milwaukee. With a Rockies win last night, it is now pretty much do or die for the Brewers, and they aren’t in the least bit in control of their fate. I’m going to go ahead and place an obituary on Milwaukee’s season. While the Brewers will...

Mariners/Athletics: It is official. The series between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics is irrelevant in the scheme of things, as both teams are eliminated from playoff contention. At this point, the rest of the season is just going to be a phase of time passing. With both teams moving on to different cities after today, don’t expect them to waste too much time at the ballpark this afternoon. Let’s take...

Cubs/Cardinals: Today, we have a bit of a unique situation in the division series between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals. In the past couple of seasons, both teams were in contention around this time of the year, and in a way things are similar this season. However, the nature of the situation has established that the Cardinals sit on the outside looking in 2.5 games behind the second Wild Card spot currently held...

Giants/Diamondbacks:  The tables have certainly turned in 2017. Around this time last year, the San Francisco Giants were preparing for the postseason while the Arizona Diamondbacks were just awaiting the season’s end sitting nearly thirty games below .500. Right now, we have the opposite, as the Diamondbacks are coming off their first playoff berth clinch since 2011 and the Giants are 34 games below .500.  Arizona...

Royals/Yankees: The Kansas City Royals would need an absolute miracle if they are to have any shot at the postseason, and will head over into the Bronx for essentially their final leap of faith. The New York Yankees, despite clinching a playoff berth on Saturday, will still need to maintain their position over the Minnesota Twins to secure home advantage in the Wild Card Game. They can also mathematically catch the Boston...

Razor MLB 9/23/2017

Red Sox/ Reds: The Boston Red Sox and Cincinnati Reds will resume this rare matchup, as they move on to game two after a nine run game which saw the majority of the runs come off two homeruns. The 5-4 score was deceiving, as Cincinnati generated all of their scoring off a grand slam in the first inning, and the Red Sox benefited from a three run go ahead jack from rookie Rafael Devers in the fourth inning. Today we have a...
