C.J. Wilson (13-10, 4.51), James Shields (14-8, 3.21)

“Big Game” James Shields returns to the hill for the first time in this division series. His performance in the Wild Card round helped to propel the Royals past the A’s and now he gets to go to the hill to take down the American League’s #1 seed. Neither he or C.J. Wilson have faired particularly well in the playoffs. Wilson carries a 4.82 ERA while Shields has an astronomic 7.20 postseason ERA.

1988. I was born in 1988 and as Mets fans we all know what that means.

I'm here for the long haul. Let's Go Mets!
