Darth Quade Remains The Dark Lord

Posted by Lewigi , Oct 19 2010 · 35 views

"I find your lack of vision disturbing..."

Darth Quade will continue for at least two years as the Emperor and Dark Lord of the Cubs. Rather than sign Ryno or wait to take a stab at getting Girardi, the Chicago Cubs shall embrace the Dark Side and march forward to conquer the rest of the MLB universe beyond Wrigley Field. This news also means that Girardi will almost assuredly remain in New York, while Ryno may end up leaving the Iowa Cubs and going to one of the other MLB teams who remain manager-less. Some sources have suggested that Sandberg may manage in Canada, with the Blue Jays, but the Cubs would prefer to keep him in Iowa so he may learn the ways of the North Side under Darth Quade, perhaps to manage later on.

Anyhow, while Ryno still has much to learn of the North Side of the Force, Mike Quade will command the Cubs until 2012.


Oh Yeah, I Remember How To Get You Out...

...says Cliff Lee as he dominates the Yankees again, just as he did against them in last year's World Series with the Phillies, and all with only a very shallow lead. The only reason he didn't pitch the complete game was that the Rangers finally scored six more runs, giving Texas an eight-run lead deep in the heart of Texas New York City. For that reason, Ron Washington decided to let ROY candidate Neftali Feliz pitch the ninth, and he also dominated for that one brief outing, giving Texas a 2-1 lead in the ALCS.

The Yankees, meanwhile, have to do something against Tommy Hunter, who appears to be the only weakness in Rangers starters. At the same time, New York has a recently unreliable A. J. Burnett on the mound, and with the way the Texas Rangers have been playing, every mistake could turn into a rally.

For those of you that prefer offense, game 4 is for you.



I Find It Ironic That...

...the Yankee fans seem to be accusing the Rangers of "buying" Cliff Lee, and claiming it's the only reason the Rangers are winning the series, and that the Yankees should have Lee in a fair world.

It sounds like how everyone else describes the Yankees.

I don't believe that a team can "buy a championship" because the team is just that--a team, and anyone they trade for at the deadline is a part of that team. I don't believe that the Yankees "bought" any of their 27 championships, and I don't believe the Rangers "bought" their pitching dominance. Same goes for every other team.

But I still think it's funny that the Yankees' fans are claiming that the Rangers took advantage of the Yankees inability to sign Lee and "bought" him as the reason they're losing to Texas.


Blackhawks Beat Blues, 3-2 In Overtime

Posted by Lewigi , Oct 19 2010 · 38 views
The Hawks had a come from behind win at the UC last night, with a couple of third period goals by Marian Hossa and a game winner in OT by Patrick Sharp, thanks to a great assist by Patrick Kane. The most incredible shot, however, was Hossa's second goal, when, facing away from the net, shot it through his legs and the legs of one of the Blues, straight into the net. Marty Turco also did fantastic, saving 32 out of 34 shots.

The Hawks' next game is in Chicago against the Vancouver Canucks, in a rematch of the Western Conference Semifinals. It will be a tough game, facing off the Stanley Cup Champions and the favorites to dethrone them. Go Hawks!

New York @ Texas

I actually had a prediction that would have been a shocker to most folks.

Rangers win in 5.

True, it requires three more Rangers wins in a row, but it does not seem all that inaccurate. My prediction was based on the pitching matchups they had. I fully believed that C. J. Wilson could, and would, outpitch C. C. Sabathia and win Game 1. After that, Colby Lewis could definitely handle the Yankees longer than Phil Hughes could handle the Rangers. Then you have Cliff Lee in game 3. Lee is solid enough to win any day. And then, in Game 4, you have Tommy Hunter vs. either A.J. Burnett or C.C. (most likely the latter had Texas won game 1) and although CC would most likely win that one, the Rangers would then face Burnett in game 5 with C. J. on the mound, and if I believed C. J. could beat C. C., I most certainly believe he could beat Burnett.

Unfortunately, the Texas bullpen let me down in Game 1, but that means that Burnett will likely pitch game 4, with Sabathia and Wilson in game 5. If Texas wins 3 and 4, they have a shot at winning 5, and even if they don't, game 6 matches up Hughes and Lewis again.

To me, the Rangers still have the advantage with the better staff.

Giants @ Phillies

Oswalt brought the world, and the NLCS, back into balance tonight by shutting down SF in all but Cody Ross' home run, so now we go to the West Coast with Hamels on the mound against Cain. A terrific matchup that...

The Phillies will win. In fact, they'll win both of them, says I. Game 5 will be won by Lincecum at home, but just barely, while the Giants fall in Game six as the O in H2O shuts down the Giants for the second time, back in Philly.

Howdy Folks!

I'm LewaLew, former BZPower RK, former Reporter, and former unofficial baseball blogger. Once, this blog served as the home of my primarily baseball-related musings. Now that I'm in college, I have little time for baseball and BZPower, so it sits here idle except for an occasional visit on my part. Please enjoy or cringe at what you read from my past, and if you'd like, go ahead and comment in the favorite baseball teams entry so that the next time a blue moon rolls around and I visit, I can add you to that content block.

Play Well!

For those of you who don't know (which would mean everyone but Aho-Chan and Sumiki) the BaseBlog is beyond a blog, this is beyond baseball it's a blog that focuses on the great American sport of baseball. The idea of a baseball themed blog has actually been in the works by me ever since Super Bowl XLIV, when Aho-Chan posted a blog entry asking if anyone besides himself didn't care for the Super Bowl, to which I suddenly got the idea of a baseball-themed blog so I could talk about my favorite sport without waiting for someone else to post in the Official Baseball Topic in the Completely Off Topic forum.

Play Ball, folks.
