After the spectacle that was Game 5, what should we be looking for heading into this seasons' potential final game? The Starting Pitching
Take everything you thought you knew. Take everything we were certain about as recently as a week ago. Throw it out the window.
The 2017 World Series is a matchup between two of the best teams in baseball featuring elite offences, multiple Ace calibre pitchers on either side, and dynamic playmakers. The Dodgers, however, feature a weapon that the Astros, and most teams in baseball, cannot match.
Starting pitchers not starting. Playoff baseball strikes again. Verlander: 2 Sale: 0 After Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander had out-dueled his Red Sox counterpart Chris Sale in Game 1 of the ALDS, we were unexpectedly treated to a rematch in Game 3, with a twist.
After over 2,400 games, Major League Baseball has narrowed its field to ten teams. In a month, one of these teams will be hoisting the World Series Trophy, the leagues premier awards will be handed out, and baseball will delve into another long and cold offseason. Before the end, the Unbalanced Baseball writers have made their predictions on who the hardware will land with at the end of the 2017 postseason.
Award season in Major League Baseball annually leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of fans, journalists, and players alike. Snubs and unlikely victors are seemingly inevitable from the sport that owns a near infinite array of statistics to perceive the game from. The league's pinnacle award, the Most Valuable Player, amasses debate year after year simply over the definition of the award itself.
Javier Báez is having fun. As hard as it is to believe, that is a good thing. Bryce Harper may be trying to make baseball fun again, but Javy Báez is succeeding. In a league seemingly filled with young talent, Báez has quickly become everything Major League Baseball should be looking for. For a league that is scrambling to inject excitement into it’s game, Javier Báez is exactly what it needs, irrespective of how certain traditionalists feel about it. As impressive as the bland excellence of Mike Trout is, Báez’s polarizing swagger is infinitely more marketable.
