Mr. Octobers of Yesterday (October 15, 2013)

Yesterday’s Mr. Octobers:

In the Red Sox-Tigers game, we must again give out two pitching awards, as both starters, John Lackey and Justin Verlander, were superb. It’s bogus that Verlander got the loss in yesterday’s game, but that’s just part of the problem with the Win and Loss stat, as Brian Kenny would no doubt agree.

As for the NLCS game between the Cardinals and Dodgers, the Mr. Octobers are Matt Holliday (who had a big 2-run HR), and Carlos Martinez, who threw two good innings of relief.

Mr. Octobers of Yesterday (October 14, 2013)

Yesterday’s Mr. Octobers are Hyun-jin Ryu and Yasiel Puig. Ryu went 7 shutout innings and gave up just three hits, while Puig went 2-3 with an RBI on his crazy triple, where he was able to get to third standing up despite spending his time getting out of the box admiring the hit while flipping his bat.
