The B.O.A.R.D.: Red Sox clinch in New York, New York

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.

The first Red Sox-Yankees postseason series in 14 years concluded on Tuesday with Craig Kimbrel narrowly escaping in a dramatic ninth inning to seal a 4-3 victory, clinching an ALCS berth for Boston for the first time since 2013. Boston's victory meant that all four higher seeds from the Division Series round advanced to the next stage of October. And, it set up an ALCS matchup with the Astros beginning on Saturday between the teams with the two best regular season records in all of baseball. 

With a couple of days sans baseball before the NLCS begins on Friday, who -- or what -- has owned the postseason so far? Check out the video at the top of the page to find out.
