October Moment: Keuchel stays in, A-Rod flies out

It’s rare that a baseball game, postseason or otherwise, goes just like you think it might go. But damned if this one didn’t, with Cy Young candidate Dallas Keuchel running his shutout streak against the Yankees to 22 innings, and homer-prone Masahiro Tanaka giving up a couple of (solo) home runs in a 3-0 loss to the homer-happy Astros. The Astros scored once against the Yankees’...

Dallas Keuchel gets beard done up by pro before playoff game

If you noticed Dallas Keuchel’s beard during Tuesday night’s American League Wild Card game…you weren’t alone. The Houston Astros ace’s chin curtain seemed to be the talk of Twitter and much like the pitcher’s performance against the New York Yankees, Keuchel’s beard was on point. And for good reason. #Astros’ Keuchel getting cleaned up earlier today by @monster99com...

Keuchel has something to prove in Wild Card

For Dallas Keuchel, pitching on three days' rest for the Houston Astros in the American League wild-card game is just one more chance to prove a season's worth of doubters wrong.

Five questions about the 2015 American League Wild Card game

The Houston Astros (86-76) and the New York Yankees (87-75) meet tonight in the American League Wild Card game to determine who’ll go on to face the Kansas City Royals in the ALDS. It’s a battle of two teams that have had their ups and downs this year: both of them were in first place in their respective divisions for a good length of time, and both of them faltered and were...

Is Dallas Keuchel too tough for the Yankees?

Tonight, the Yankees can end their season or extend their season. If New York wants to advance to the ALDS, they need to get past AL Cy Young contender Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros. Should the Yankees be scared? Well, they have to face one of the best pitchers in baseball. So in a sense, yes, they should be scared. Keuchel places second in pitchers’ WAR among AL candidates...

D-backs have chance to spoil Astros' playoff party

A milestone win for Dallas Keuchel would mean even more for the Houston Astros. Keuchel aims for his 20th victory while attempting to keep the Astros atop a tight race for the AL's second wild card Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Houston (85-75) is clinging to a one-game lead over the Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota Twins as it enters Chase Field for the final three regular...

The AL Cy Young discussion

Last week, I addressed the Cy Young battle in the senior circuit and titled it “The NL Cy Young Showdown.” This time, it’s the AL’s turn — and “discussion” (as opposed to “showdown”) seems to be the proper way to characterize it. It’s been a low-key pitching season, comparatively, in the AL, with no one posting an ERA near Zack Greinke‘s, or pitching no-hitters...

Making an MVP out of Dallas Keuchel

If I were writing this piece five years ago, the entire premise of the article would seem contrived. Only two pitchers won MVP awards between 1986 and 2010, and no pitcher had won since 1992. Pedro Martinez led the AL by four wins in 1999 (although only 2.5 using RA9-WAR) and didn’t win the MVP. But thanks to Justin Verlander and Clayton Kershaw, voters have begun to acknowledge...
