MLB Game Picks - Thursday: October 2, 2014

I am zero for two so far in the post season. Nicely done, William! Heh. I was worried about Edinson Volquez and I let my emotions override my concern. You just can't trust pitchers who wear their hats crooked...at least, not in the long run. Madison Bumgarner certainly helped cement his stature as one of the premier pitchers in baseball.

Playoffs?! Playoffs?!

Yes, playoffs! I figured I would throw out a new post for pre-ALDS talk. As you may have heard by now, the Tigers have announced their starting rotation for the playoffs, which goes: Scherzer/Verlander/Price/Porcello, ending the speculation/hope of some that they would buck tradition and go with a three-man rotation. Chris Tillman (13-6, 3.34) is going for Baltimore in the opener...
