Each divisional series was in action yesterday.



It's like Christmas in October.

For those who like playoff baseball, there were four, count them, FOUR playoff games on Friday.

The National League divisional series started on Thursday. The Cardinals and Dodgers both secured game one victories. On Friday, the Pirates and Braves were both able to even each series. Today is an off day in the National League. Games three and four will be Sunday and Monday.

Over in the American League, the Red Sox made their first playoff appearance since 2009. That year they were swept by the Angels in the divisional series. John Lackey was on that Angels team. He left after the season for Boston, saying he wanted to go to a team that would win in the playoffs.  It was an odd statement, considering that he left the team that had defeated Boston in the playoffs. This year, Lackey leads the Red Sox in quality starts even though he has a sub 500 record.  He is scheduled to start game 2 today.

Prior to 2009, the Red Sox were defeated by the Rays in the 2008 ALCS. This year, the two teams meet in the ALDS. The socks took game one. The other matchup is the Tigers facing the A's in a rematch of last years ALDS. Detroit won that series in five games on their way to the World Series. They also won the first game this year.
