The Giants have faced elimination six different times this postseason. Yet they are still standing. Game 7 of the NLCS wasn’t much of a contest, as the Giants topped the Cardinals 9-0 at AT&T Park in San Francisco this evening to win the National League pennant and advance to the World Series against the Tigers. …

The Giants got to Chris Carpenter early and took advantage of one of the best performances of Ryan Vogelsong‘s career to win 6-1 in Sunday night’s Game 6 and send the NLCS to a decisive Game 7 on Monday. Vogelsong retired 14 of the first 15 batters he faced and struck out a career-high nine …
Just as Justin Verlander pitched the Tigers past the A’s, CC Sabathia proved to be the dominant presence as the Yankees beat the Orioles 3-1 in Friday’s decisive Game 5 and advanced to the ALCS. Sabathia, coming off a win in Game 1 in which he nearly went the distance, did go nine this time …
Craig Counsell Spent 15 years in the League on 5 different teams. Counsell was both the highest-rated 2nd baseman and the highest-rated 3rd baseman over the period from 2002 to 2008. He has the distinction of having been on base for the last two times that the World Series ended in a walk-off hit, and …

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 [...]
