Now onto the News, Rumors, and Commentary…

“It took 162 games to decide things, but given all of the uncertainty heading into the final day of the regular season, it is perhaps an upset that a 163rd game (or even a 164th) wasn’t required. However, the field for the 2021 postseason has now been decided. The Giants outpaced the Dodgers in a…”

“On Tuesday, the Yankees will play the Red Sox at Fenway Park for a chance to match up with the Rays in the best-of-five ALDS. • What’s ahead? Rays postseason FAQ “I’m sure we’ll all be watching,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. We know it’s not postseason yet, but it’s the postseason for that team over there, and they played with a lot of intensity.” Yankees starter Jameson Taillon and a parade of relievers shut out Tampa Bay, the eighth time the Rays were held scoreless this season. • How they got there: Rays ready to finish job “This is a magnificent team,” outfielder Randy Arozarena, who completed his 20-homer, 20-steal season by swiping second base in the eighth inning Sunday, said through interpreter Manny Navarro.”

“It’s a credit to just the amount of quality pitchers that we know that we can rely on in different save situations,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. If he gets there in the Rays’ regular-season finale, this would be the second time in franchise history Tampa Bay would have two players (also Austin Meadows) with 100 RBIs; Evan Longoria and Carlos Peña were the first to do so in 2009. • Rays Stat of the Day, August 2021 “That’s quite a season, quite a rookie season,” said manager Kevin Cash, who endorsed Arozarena’s candidacy for American League Rookie of the Year. Tampa Bay wasted no time after clinching a spot in the postseason on Wednesday; it also won Friday and Saturday to record its first three-game winning streak since claiming nine straight from Aug.”

“10) Red Sox The Red Sox somehow pulled this off, surviving this long to get to the AL Wild Card Game, despite losing series to the Yankees and Orioles heading into the final weekend of the season. But if the two best teams are to face off in the NL Division Series, it’ll be the Giants and Dodgers. One of Houston’s best postseason performers, shortstop Carlos Correa, is a pending free agent, and he may have an extra incentive as he begins what might be his final October with the Astros. 5) Astros The Astros went a tepid 7-6 in the final two weeks, but they had a nice end to the regular season, winning a home series over the A’s and scoring 23 runs over those three games.”

“Bottom line: The Giants’ pitching staff is a lot like their lineup. Bottom line: Though Zack Greinke has been a shadow of his old, consistent self this season, the Astros still managed to field a strong rotation. Bottom line: Barraged by injuries basically from the first day of Spring Training, the Cardinals never got to field the rotation they envisioned. October is all about pitching.”
