MLB Playoffs: Ranking of the 10 Postseason pitching corps

October is about launching. Well, when it’s not a grounder through the legs of a first baseman, a 12-year-old boy sprawling on the outfield wall, a blockage call at third base, or a swarm of mosquitoes descending onto the field. But mostly it’s about pitching.

So how are the Postseason teams of this year in terms of their pitching staff? I’m glad you asked. Let’s rank them from 1 to 10. * ERA + statistics current until Saturday:

  1. Dodgers: Major League Baseball Ranking: First in ERA (3.01).

  2. Brewers: Major League Baseball Ranking: Third in ERA (3.50).

  3. Giants: Major League Baseball Ranking: First in K / BB (3.43).

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
