Good morning folks! The playoffs have been pretty exciting to watch thusfar! Let's take a look at the storylines around baseball:
- Jonathan Papelbon is unlikely to return to Washington next season, writes MLB Daily Dish.
- J.A. Happ seems to have found a home with the Pirates.
- Twitter suspended the accounts of Deadspin and SB Nation .gifs over copyright laws.
- Our very own Meg Rowley wrote a spectacular article about the Chase Utley incident that you should check out.
- Chase Utley was handed a two-game suspension for his slide, but will appeal it.
- Mets fans boo'ed Utley so loudly that it drowned out the PA announcer.
- Nathaniel Grow at Fangraphs breaks down the Utley slide and suspension.
- Jeff Sullivan takes a look at Noah Syndergaard's slider, a fairly new pitch for him that's been working well so far.
