ALCS MVP Andrew Miller Is Biggest Game-Changer of 2016 MLB Playoffs
The 2016 MLB postseason is butter, and Andrew Miller is a hot knife.
Miller got eight crucial outs Wednesday in the Cleveland Indians ' 3-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series, which sent the Tribe to their first World Series since 1997.
In all, Miller logged 7.2 scoreless innings in the ALCS. He allowed three hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out 14.
Those are stat-sheet-melting numbers. Somehow, though, they don't do justice to what the lanky left-hander accomplished.

Toronto Blue Jays eliminated in ALCS for second straight year after shutout Game 5 loss to Cleveland
TORONTO - End of a game, end of a series, end of a season. But, the end of an era?
