Didi Gregorius New York Yankees

Not everyone would describe Didi's stylin' in such glowing terms.

Gerrit Cole Houston Astros

Almost exactly the same line score as the one that's shown below. He's too much.

Will the next game be a sellout? It's a long way for the Astros fans to travel.

C.J. Cron Minnesota Twins

It can't go on forever. Can it?

Play Index Lowlight: Minnesota Twins

The last time the Twins won a playoff game was game 1 of the 2004 ALDS. Since then, they have lost 14 consecutive postseason games, 11 of those coming at the hands of the Yankees. That is now the longest losing streak in MLB playoff history, surpassing Boston's 13-game losing streak from 1986 to 1995.

Daniel Hudson Washington Nationals

A money to pitch to Seager if there ever was one. First slider of the at-bat.

Tommy Kahnle New York Yankees

The least effective of seven Yankee pitchers gets the W.

Vaulting countless teams into first in AL-only playoff leagues.

Mike Foltynewicz Atlanta Braves

Flaherty was good but Folty was better. Needed only 83 pitches to get through seven innings. Nasty breaking ball the Cardinals couldn't lay off. Only runner who got as far as second got there on an error.

Elvis Andrus Texas Rangers

I had to pay $22 for him. And now he's a potential keeper at that price.

Cutting Kenley Jansen with a week to go in the season was my Konmari moment ... it brought me joy!

Holy Cow!  Just noticed that the most expensive pitcher on the winner of NL Doubt Wars was a starter on the Rockies!  (German Marquez)  Well played, sir!

Congrats to Ichiban.  I was 3rd in overall NL this year after finishing 5th last year.  Gunning for 1st in NL next year.  Peter, thanks for managing this. It's a fun game.    

PS - no reason to look at my mixed teams - nope, nothing to see there.  :-)

Josh Donaldson Atlanta Braves

Would the Braves really have been with a replacement player at third this year than than a replacement player at first? Or second, for that matter?

No, we never did activate him.

Yes, the A's should have started him yesterday.

I wonder if they considered it?

Yandy Diaz Tampa Bay Rays

Without a doubt the number of homers hit to the opposite field this year reached an all-time high.

Was the percentage also a record?
