If you plan on watching make sure to join the Facebook Event page. The Memphis Redbirds are 6-0 in the playoffs after sweeping both of their opponents in the Pacific Coast League playoffs. Dynasty client, Pete Parise, appeared in 5 of the 6 games, earning 4 saves (a new Memphis Redbirds playoffs record). In all 5 games, Parise did not give up a single run.
Parise has been lights out in the playoffs, which has led St. Louis Cardinals manager, Tony La Russa, to say that he is eager to see Parise in person. La Russa is in the last year of his contract with the Cardinals, and he has stated that even if he is not back with St. Louis next year, he will still be stopping by Jupiter next Spring Training to catch a peek at Parise.
