It’s still wild to me that the Los Angeles Angels snapped up Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson at pretty much the same time. I went to bed a few Wednesdays ago with both of those players available on the free-agent market. When I woke up, the Angels had signed the best free-agent position player, and …

DALLAS (AP)—Three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols agreed Thursday to a $254 million, 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.

They looked finished during the early goings of September [...]
It’s hard to win a World Series without a little luck.
I’m practically impossible to win a seven-game World Series without a lot of luck.
And the Cardinals rode their share of good luck to yet another championship, beating the Rangers 6-2, Friday night in Game 7 of the 2011 World Series.
You can’t do it without some really good [...]
The St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers shifted to Rangers Ballpark for Saturday night’s Game 3 of the World Series. The Cardinals wound up winning the game 16-7.
