Predicting the 6 Biggest Goats/Heroes of This Week's MLB Playoff Games

After just four days of the 2012 MLB playoffs, we have already seen performances that were both enlightening and disappointing.

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo and his seven-inning, one-hit performance on Sunday night against the San Francisco has his Reds on the brink of advancing to the NLCS. Madison Bumgarner, on the other hand, continued his late-season swoon, unable to work out of the fifth inning.

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia nearly worked a complete game in dominating the Baltimore Orioles, while O's closer Jim Johnson gave up five runs in one-third of an inning to give the Yankees a 7-2 victory.

Two of the bats the Giants are counting on this postseason have both been silent thus far. Marco Scutaro and Hunter Pence are a combined 0-for-playoffs.

As we patiently await the start of games later on today and for the rest of the week, we'll take a look at possible goats/heroes, who could surprise and who could disappoint.
