Dodgers win 3-1 and win the series 3-0. There goes my sleeper pick of the D-Backs doing something

Houston wins their series over the Red Sox 3-1

Yankees win 7-3 and tie the series up 2-2 with the Indians

Cubs win 2-1 over the Nationals to take a series lead 2-1

Nationals blank the Cubs 5-0 and tie up the series 2-2

Yankees and Indians playing now to see who goes on to play the Astros. IMO, if the Indians lose, it will be a major collapse on their part but I think they will pull it out tonight

Yankees pull it out! 5-2 final. So the ALCS is set. Indians had a nice season but fell apart the last three games to a young and hungry Yankees squad.

An absolute collapse by the Indians being up 2-0. At least last year when they lost the World Series to the Cubs by losing 3 in row, they had an excuse of a injured pitching rotation. No issues like that this time. Just a choke job IMO

Hey, Yankees 'deserve' to be there...look at all the money they spend on players> Isn't that the name of the game?  Buy a title/

After building a 2-0 lead in the series, the Indians scored 0, 3, 2 runs in the final three games.

Scoring two runs or less two-thirds of the time will do for Cleveland what it did for the Pirates all year long.

That is 6 straight losses for Cleveland when they had the chance to end a series.   

Also as mentioned above teams who spend a ton (outside the young Astros) are all we have left in the playoff field.  Population wise we have 5 of the top 6 cities in the US left.

While that is true, the stars for all of the teams remaining were for the most part drafted and developed in those organizations or traded for when they were minor leaguers.

The Pirates have certainly lost some players due to being unable or willing to pay them but they have not lost any real stars because other than McCutchen (who was drafted by David Littlefield) the Pirates havenít had any elite players.

Yes...that is the definition of not clutch.

As for the Yankees payroll I would have to look it up but I doubt that it is #1 or 2 anymore. They actually are pretty likeable right now. Aside from overspending on Elsbury their roster now does not resemble the way it did towards the end of Steinbrenner. But with that said I will have to look it up. Dodgers I assume would have the highest remaining payroll.

Yankees are 2nd in payroll behind the Dodgers. 

The website above is great as it breaks down everything.  The Yankees are still paying A-Rod $21 million for this season to sit in a booth to talk about the games.

Now that is one hell of a deal. I like the Bonilla deal with the Mets better. Isn't he still getting paid 1 million a year until 2021 or something like that?

Cubs up 7-4 in the 5th inning. Game is not over yet but if the Nationals lose, don't they have to look at maybe replacing Dusty Baker or say it is a player not getting it done issue? This team has too much talent to keep losing in the playoffs

Haha thanks for the A-Rod Yankees news. Their payroll is higher than I thought honestly but that is the luxury of having deep pockets. The Yankees can write off a $21 mistake while the Pirates are kind of held hostage when someone like McCutcheon is underperforming.

And yes Dusty Baker's job may be on the line. He was an uninspired hire in the first place (a good manager in his era but the game has changed since the early 1990s)...however the Cubs did have the best record in the NL second half of the season so that was a tough draw for the Nats and before the season the Cubbies would have been favored in this series anyways. So with Dusty it could go either way.

Cubs beat the nationals 9-8 and win the series 3 games to 2.

Another underachieving season for the Nationals.

9 inning game took nearly 5 hours and didnít finish until almost 1 AM.  That is crazy and I wonder how many people missed the ending due to the length.
