Charlie Montoyo will have Shoemaker start Game 1 against the Rays and Ryu Game 2. Montoyo: "They are one of the best teams in baseball, so we have to be creative. Our ace will be pitching the second game, but they got like four aces over there!"

Hello, old friend. Looking good!

The Dodgers finished the 2020 season with a 43-17 record and the fourth-best run-differential per game (plus-2.27) since 1900. They'll face the Brewers, 14 games worse, in a best-of-three from Dodger Stadium that begins on Wednesday.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers finish the season 43-17, a .717 winning percentage, the highest in franchise history and the highest in the majors since the 1954 Indians finished 111-43 (.721). Of course, 60 games is not the same as 154 or 162, so we'll always wonder if this could have been one of the greatest regular season teams of all time (yes, they could have been).

We have our NL bracket and will not end up with first meeting ever between the Giants and Dodgers in the postseason. The Giants lost 5-4 to the Padres, which gave the Brewers the No. 8 seed even though the Brewers also lost. Both teams ended up 29-31, but the Brewers advance on a tiebreaker.

As expected, the Angels announce that the team has decided General Manager Billy Eppler will not return for the final year of his contract.

The New York Yankees will limp into the playoffs with the fifth seed and will play the 4th seeded team in the AL Central with the Toronto Blue Jays losing to the Baltimore Orioles. The Blue Jays will play at Tampa Bay in the Wild Card round.

Jazz Chisholm with another HR today, and the Marlins have a 5-0 lead over the Yankees in the 8th inning. Nonetheless, the Yankees are getting help from the Blue Jays to secure the 5th seed, with Toronto currently losing to the O's 7-5 in the 8th inning.

DJ LeMahieu is set to become the fourth player in Yankees franchise history to lead the majors in batting average, joining none other than Mickey Mantle (.353 BA in 1956), Joe DiMaggio (.381 in 1939) and Lou Gehrig (.363 BA in 1934).

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

DJ LeMahieu is 2-for-2 today, and is currently batting .366, which means he will likely finish the season leading all of baseball in batting average (next: Nat's Juan Soto .346, coming into today) LeMahieu would be only the fourth player in Yankees franchise history to lead the majors in batting average.
