Last year in the playoffs, Alex Rodriguez was outstanding for the New York Yankees. He carried the team through the American League Division Series and the American League Championship Series. Although he struggled in the first few games of the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies last year, he had several key hits to help the Yankees become World Series Champions.
As the playoffs are about to start, there are some important players who I think will carry their team in the playoffs this year the way Rodriguez did last year for the Yankees. Those are the players that I am going to recognize here.
