Via ESPN, a nifty article by Jayson Stark compiling some nifty statistics about this year's MLB playoffs thus far. My favorite nifty stat is this bit about the Yankees' pitchers in the series against Anaheim: in games two and three of that series, Yankees pitchers worked the count to 0-2 against sixteen different Anaheim batters -- and surrendered hits to eight of those batters, versus securing only four strikeouts. Ouch.

Also interesting is the fact that since the Braves began their postseason run in 1991, they have played every National League team at one point or another in the postseason, save only two -- and those are the only two National League teams that never made the postseason in that span. Read the article to see which teams.
