The Orioles/Royals series should give hope to Braves fans discouraged by Fredi’s return. If Ned Yost can get a team to the verge of a World Series, anyone can.
Yost will become the first manager in history to win his first 8 playoff games if the Royals prevail today, and they’re off to a good start.
As gripping as this postseason has been, no series has gone the distance. There’s a chance the NLCS will deliver but St. Louis may have to overcome a 3-1 deficit, as Ryan Vogelsong, who has a 1.19 ERA in five playoff starts, toes the slab tonight for San Fran.
