Yesterday’s Mr. Octobers (NL Wild Card Game)

Jake Arrieta was unstoppable and Kyle Schwarber sent a ball into the stratosphere, making them the easy picks for last night’s Mr. Octobers.

With the LDS round about to begin, all Mr. Octobers of the coming round get 3 points (6 if it’s a Game 5).

Standings so far (PP= Position Player, P= Pitcher, * means eliminated from playoffs):

P Dallas Keuchel 1

PP Colby Rasmus 1

PP Kyle Schwarber 1

P Jake Arrieta 1

 

Last Night in One GIF (NL Wild Card 2014)

Through the postseason, I’ll be posting a GIF that summarizes the events of the previous night.

This is basically the opposite of what George Brett was feeling. The Kansas City faithful got to see a classic game that was beyond belief. But a day later, Pirates fans… they just kind of had to sit there grim and dejected as their team was eliminated.

(As you can see, @_MarcusD_ made this gif, so thank you, @_MarcusD_, whoever you are).
