It’s now time to get into the big boy awards. Today we will look at our predictions for the American League and National League Cy Young award winners and tomorrow, we will get into predicting the MVP award winners.
Let’s get right into it. [...]
My dad and I were not always Yankees fans. In the past blogs I had written that my favorite teams when I first started watching baseball were the Montreal Expos(because of Gary Carter) and my American League team was the Detroit Tigers (because of Lance Parrish). As a 7-year-old kid playing baseball, our team name …
To those of you who have followed my blog posts here at Rumors and Rants for the last four years or however long it has been, thanks. However, I am pretty sure I may be done here, because I hate sports now.
Maybe there’s still time for me to get into Broadway musicals or something as my hobby/vocation/entire life. You know, something that may provide me with an actual reward for all the time and effort I put into it. [...]
In arguably the greatest (or most bizarre) World Series game of all time, David Freese (0-3 at the time), with one strike away from walking back to the dugout while the opposing team (the Texas Rangers) celebrates their first World Series title, hit a deep shot that knocked in Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman. In extra innings, he hit a solo jack that gave the Cardinals the win and forced a game 7.
That’s game, that’s game, that’s game. [...]
Oct 28, 2011 – You have to understand my situation, here. I started writing this recap when the Cardinals were trailing the Rangers 7-4 in the seventh inning, and it looked like the Rangers were going to win their first-ever World Series. Even when the Cardinals threatened in the eighth, I kept on working through, because what were the odds that the Rangers would give it away? What were the odds that Neftali Feliz [...]
The World Series returns to Busch Stadium on Wednesday with the Texas Rangers needing just one more win against the St. Louis Cardinals to secure their first world championship. The Rangers have never been this close to baseball immortality, but instead of looking at their place in history, they remain focused on the present. “We’ve done …
It’s a rather small “stack” of news today, but there is a lot of good stuff so let’s see what made “the stack”:
1. Cardinals blunders help Rangers take 3-2 series lead.
Dare I say that one of the “cardinal” rules in the playoffs in baseball, especially the World Series is that everyone should be on the same page. Clearly last night, the Cardinals were not. Whether it was the failed hit and run between Albert Pujols and Allen Craig [...]
The Texas Rangers bounced back from a 16-7 loss in Game 3 of the World Series with a dominant pitching performance by Derek Holland in a 4-0 win on Sunday night. With the win, the Rangers drew even with the St. Louis Cardinals, setting up a best-of-three game series for the title. While it may not have been needed in the end [...]
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. We expected to see a lot more offense with the teams playing under AL rules in a hitter-friendly environment, and indeed, that’s how things played out, [...]
