The 2013 Major League Baseball Postseason gets underway tonight with the first of the two Wild Card games. How is it all going to play out? That’s a tough question to answer any year, but this year it’s pretty much impossible. The Red Sox look great, but pretty much every team could take the whole thing if a few breaks go their way. So let’s not even pretend like we can say who will win the World Series.
Instead, let’s take a look at the individual players you’ll want to keep a close eye on. These aren’t necessarily the best players in the postseason. For example, this list does not feature the game’s best hitter, Miguel Cabrera, nor does it feature the game’s best catcher, Yadier Molina. Instead, it features difference-makers who may have flown under the radar, or guys who have untapped potential, or guys who have under-achieved this year. You get the idea.
So ready to get pumped for October baseball? Good. Get clicking.
