Feast on baseball today and imagine the Giants participating in the tournament 3-5 years from now!

ALDS (HOU 6, TB 2) - Game One

TAMPA BAY RAY

RF — Austin Meadows
LF — Tommy Pham
1B — Ji-Man Choi
DH — Yandy Diaz
2B — Brandon Lowe
C — Travis d’Arnaud
3B — Joey Wendle
CF — Kevin Kiermaier
SS — Willy Adames

SP — Tyler Glasnow

Who’s the most famous Ray? I’m going to say it’s Tommy Pham.

HOUSTON ASTROS

CF — George Springer
2B — Jose Altuve
LF — Michael Brantley
3B — Alex Bregman
DH — Yordan Alvarez
1B — Yuli Gurriel
SS — Carlos Correa
C — Robinson Chirinos
RF — Josh Reddick

SP — Justin Verlander

I’ll say Verlander is the most famous Astro. Do you concur?


ANLDS ( - Game Two

NLDS (ATL 3, STL 0) - Game Two

Shocked (not shocked) to hear that Yadier Molina took issue with the way Acuna Jr. celebrated a home run last night. Never change, Cardinals. Consistency is important for the bit.

RF — Dexter Fowler
3B — Tommy Edman
1B — Paul Goldschmidt
LF — Marcell Ozuna
C — Yadier Molina
2B — Kolten Wong
SS — Paul DeJong
CF — Harrison Bader

Who’s the most famous Cardinal at this point? Yadi?

Apparently, Mark Melancon has totally skated by for absolutely being the sole reason why the Braves lost last night’s game. The scapegoat has turned to the most talented player on the roster. Isn’t it weird how these controversies seem to follow Mark Melancon?

CF — Ronald Acuna Jr.
2B — Ozzie Albies
1B — Freddie Freeman
3B — Josh Donaldson
LF — Nick Markakis
RF — Matt Joyce (!)
C — Brian McCann
SS — Dansby Swanson
SP — Mike Foltynewicz

Freddie Freeman is probably the most famous Brave right now. At least, I hope he is. And just to bring back the whole Melancon being blameless here, this morning on MLB Network Radio, a listener seriously asked why there wasn’t a bigger controversy about Kolten Wong’s hit going over the first base bag. Seriously, Braves fans can’t believe that the closer blew it.
