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
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).
