Is it time to anoint George Springer as the new Mr. October?
Each October, the MLB postseason belongs to someone or something. With so much good baseball packed into one month, it's sometimes tough to follow all the madness. So, we created the Baseball October Arbitrary Ranking Device (The B.O.A.R.D.) to keep track of it all.
Another weekend of postseason baseball is in the books, with both League Championship Series tied 1-1 heading into the third week of October. There was all kinds of weird stuff happening, including reliever Brandon Woodruff going yard off Clayton Kershaw, Yasiel Puig snapping a bat and A-Rod wearing Red Sox gear on television.
There was plenty of B.O.A.R.D.-worthy material from the weekend, but there are still only five spots on our definitive postseason rankings up for grabs. Who became a B.O.A.R.D. member today?
Jake Mintz is the louder half of the Cespedes Family BBQ. Despite a torn UCL in his right elbow, he still finds a way to tweet excessively during baseball games.
Jordan Shusterman is one half of Cespedes Family BBQ. He enjoys overpaying for Mike Trout in fantasy baseball leagues and convincing the masses that Mike Zunino is good.
