Ultimately, the players need to overcome whatever game conditions they face.
It was like watching Willie Mays at the end. Please MLB, don’t do it again.
The error was not pretty.

Another great Jeff Sullivan article breaking down, visually, how Clayton Kershaw suffered his historic meltdown versus the Cardinals:
Well, SugarBear Blanks begs to differ, for one:
They’re making it impossible not to like them.

Pittsburgh Press, October 6, 1914:
Are the Tigers really as bad as the Yankees? Except for their bullpen, I say no.
Sometimes making the right move doesn’t matter in the playoff dice game.
I thought he retired long ago…
I usually like Will Leitch’s stuff. I don’t like this piece. Commissioners aren’t all-knowing, omnipotent deities.They are men managing complicated, high-profile *businesses*. In Selig’s case, despite some errors along the away, he’s done a tremendous job juggling the business and PR sides of his job. He’s been able to do so because he holds real power. To strip his replacement of such power would not be an improvement.
Royals win, despite the burning hate of all sabermetricians.
Rany is so happy he wrote a song.
O’s sweep and close the Tigers playoff window.
The ALDSes are settled, but the NL still remains!
Washington (Fister) at San Francisco (Bumgarner), 5 PM Eastern, Giants lead series 2-0, advance to NLCS with win
Dodgers (Ryu) at Cardinals (Lackey), 9 PM Eastern, series tied 1-1.

This was a long game.
Orioles (Norris) at Tigers (Price), 3:30 PM Eastern, TBS. Orioles lead 2-0, advance to ALCS with win.
Angels (CJ Wilson) at Royals (Shields), 7:30 PM Eastern, TBS. Royals lead 2-0, advance to ALCS with win.

Giants (Hudson) at Nationals (Zimmermann), Game 2, 5:30 PM (Eastern), FS1 (Giants lead 1-0)
Cardinals (Lynn) at Dodgers (Greinke), Game 2, 9:30 PM (Eastern), MLB Network (Cardinals lead 1-0)
I wasn’t able to see Game 2 of the Royals/Angels series nor have I had a chance to see a lot of Angels games. When I have watched the Angels, I haven’t noticed this and Trout seems to rake. But that is a small sample. So, Angels watchers, is there anything to this idea?
I guess a guy who struck out in 30% of his big-league at-bats would know.
