By Mike Petriello

PUBLISHED: Oct 13, 2016, 8:43 pm EDT

PUBLISHED: Oct 13, 2016, 11:35 am EDT

Cleveland and Toronto have never faced off in the postseason, and neither team has been to the World Series since the 1990s. That, plus some big star power on both sides, makes for a fun ALCS. Let's go position-by-position.

Credit where it's due: Blue Jays' bullpen comes up huge

By Mike Petriello

PUBLISHED: Oct 12, 2016, 5:30 pm EDT

Toronto's bullpen hasn't been considered a strength, but they've been fantastic so far in the postseason. Headed into the ALCS, how have they managed to be this good? They've missed bats, and the batted balls they've allowed haven't hurt them.

Estrada's 'cue ball' fastball propelling him to stardom
