All four League Division Series are well underway now in the 2014 MLB Playoffs, and as usual, there are plenty of surprises.

Brad Penny came away with a win last weekend in his first major league start in nearly three years and first for the Miami Marlins in a decade.
Vin Scully is staying in the booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Miami Marlins had no offense, except for one big swing. And that was enough to spoil a brilliant Arizona debut by Vidal Nuno.
