Justin Turner and the Dodgers entered the postseason with the best record in baseball.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Down 3-1 to the Atlanta Braves in the NLCS, it looked like the Los Angeles Dodgers were ready to produce another postseason failure. Instead, the Dodgers rallied to reach their third World Series in the last four seasons.
Tampa Bay Rays
Despite having one of the lowest payrolls in MLB, the Tampa Bay Rays have reached the World Series for the first time since 2008. The Rays are hoping for a better result than that 2008 World Series, losing in five games.
After taking a 3-1 lead over the Dodgers in the NLCS, the wheels fell off for the Atlanta Braves. Attempting to reach the World Series for the first time since 1999, the Braves stunningly lost the final three games of the series.

With many people rooting against them, the Houston Astros nearly made the World Series for a second straight season. Falling just short of silencing their doubters, the Astors lost to the Rays in seven games in the ALCS.
New York Yankees
After sweeping the Cleveland Indians in the wild-card round, the New York Yankees ran into a red hot Rays team, ultimately losing in the divisional round in five games. The Yankees should contend again next season.
