Mets @ Dodgers, Oct. 15: 2015: NLDS Game 5

Over the last 24 hours, we asked two questions about this game. We wanted to know how the Dodgers would assemble an outfield from a collection of outfield-like substance, and we wondered if Yasmani Grandal‘s extreme health limitations would keep him out of the lineup in favor of A.J. Ellis. Mets Dodgers 5:00 p.m., TBS…


Dodgers @ Mets Oct. 12, 2015: NLDS Game 4

Well, here it is. Here’s possibly the final game of the Dodger season. Here’s possibly more fuel on the “Clayton Kershaw can’t win in the playoffs” fire. Here’s potentially the end of Don Mattingly‘s tenure as Dodger manager. Here’s the difference between going home with Zack Greinke queued up for a deciding Game 5, or…


Dodgers @ Mets Oct. 12, 2015: NLDS Game 3

After all of that time, and the “will they won’t they” leading up to today’s game, is it really surprising that Chase Utley will be on the bench at the start of this ballgame (his appeal was not heard, so he’s available)? I mean, Howie Kendrick has been starting for a reason, like he is…


Mets @ Dodgers Oct. 10, 2015: NLDS Game 2

Last night was a great baseball game. There was a little bit of everything for all baseball fans — except the whole “Dodgers winning” part.

Mets @ Dodgers Oct. 9, 2015: NLDS Game 1

Hey, Corey Seager: No pressure. Just over a month ago, you were playing in Triple-A. Now you’re not only starting in a playoff game, you’re hitting third. Mets Dodgers 6:45 p.m., TBS Los Angeles RF Granderson LF Crawford 3B Wright 2B Kendrick CF Cespedes SS Seager 2B Murphy 1B Gonzalez C d’Arnaud 3B Turner 1B…


Cubs @ Pirates Oct. 7, 2015: NL Wild Card

After last night’s AL warm-up, this is the main event. This is Jake Arrieta vs. Gerrit Cole. This is one of the most-anticipated games in years, I think. Enjoy. Ready? #LetsGo NL #WildCard preview: #FlyTheW — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) October 7, 2015 Here's our lineup for tonight's #WildCard #LETSGOBUCS — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) October…


Astros @ Yankees, Oct. 6, 2015: AL Wild Card

There’s playoff baseball tonight! It might not be the Dodgers, yet, but Dallas Keuchel vs. Masahiro Tanaka in a winner-take-all match in the Bronx is certainly what you’re going to be watching, and talking about. So do that here. #Astros lineup for tonight's #WildCard Game at Yankee Stadium. @kidkeuchy gets the ball at 7:08 CT….


Padres @ Dodgers Oct. 4, 2015: Regular season finale

Finally, it’s here. After 161 games of baseball, the regular season ends today. With home-field advantage locked up, there would be almost no reason to watch this game — odd, especially since Clayton Kershaw is pitching. Padres Dodgers 12:10 p.m. Los Angeles CF Upton LF Crawford 1B Norris 2B Utley 3B Solarte 1B Gonzalez 2B…
