Playoff predictions: AL Orioles, Indians, Mariners; DET, NYY. NL Nationals, Pirates, Dodgers; Cardinals, Marlins. PIT to win WS over SEA.
After a nervy first inning, the Mets pitcher settled down and quieted the Dodgers, writes Adam Rubin. espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…
Sources: Manager Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and is leaving the Tampa Bay Rays immediately.
Of all the crazy Royals' numbers, this might be the best: KC scored 40 runs this postseason 8th inning/later, no other team had more than 5
My guess on Joe Maddon: He eventually winds up with the Cubs.
