Atlanta Braves GM John Coppolella has resigned from the team while the Braves are under investigation regarding breaking rules about the international player market. Braves' president of baseball operations John Hart will be interim GM.

Your picks are exactly what I'd predict Teddy. I'd rather the Cubs over Washington, but the Nationals have a pretty clear pitching advantage and I don't think the Cubs offense is great enough to carry them to win the series. Cleveland vs LA would be a great series and I wouldn't be upset about either winning.

3-0 Twins in the first. That escalated quickly.

The Yankees are moving on to the next round, snapping their five-game postseason losing skid; and everyone thought the Yankees were done after the first inning....

Arizona is Los Angeles bound. For the first time, both home teams have won their Wild Card games.

Today's pitching matchup between Verlander and Sale should be a good one.

Verlander delivered, Sale didn't. And the Red Sox have also lost Eduardo Nez to injury in the first inning.

A cameraman for the Indians just pulled a Jeffrey Maier and even with replay, the umps let it stand. It didn't affect the game but they should know better if they're going to allow calls to be reviewed.

The last time the Yankees lost in the ALDS to the Indians, they fired their manager.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

His contract is up at the end of this season. You know it's bad when one of his own players likes an Instagram comment about his firing.

Average length of these postseason games: 3 hours, 48 minutes. How's the improvement of the pace going for you, MLB?
