Top 5 Tuesday: Best analysis from the MLB Playoffs

Tuesday November 3rd, 2015

The MLB playoffs wrapped up Sunday, with the Kansas City Royals earning a World Series victory over the New York Mets. Of course, the end of the baseball season also means the end of Joe Buck, Harold Reynolds, Alex Rodriguez and others breaking down America’s pastime. 

Many people on Twitter complained throughout the playoffs about the (lack of) quality announcing and analysis during MLB’s postseason. Some of the sound bites we heard during October were more memorable than the games themselves. Here are five of our favorite pieces of analysis uttered during the playoffs: 

5. Alex Rodriguez


He turned out to be right. 

4. Harold Reynolds I


I still don’t know what this means.

3. Pete Rose



2. Harold Reynolds II

Yeah, that's not a cylinder.

1. Frank Thomas


That is one of the nicest ethers ever delivered.
