Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann break down the weekend’s playoff action, starting with Joe Girardi’s curious relationship with the challenge and Aaron Judge’s untimely slump (02:00), then David Price's emergence as Boston's only trustworthy pitcher (23:00) and José Altuve’s .700-plus batting average (32:45). Then they wrestle with Clayton Kershaw’s playoff reputation (37:45), whether Arizona is good enough to come back from a 2-0 deficit (42:00), and Joe Maddon’s bullpen management in the Cubs’ Game 2 loss to Washington (46:00).
