Hi Ho, Silver! Away!

Posted by LewaLew , in Baseball Oct 21 2011 · 33 views

An amazing comeback in the ninth inning has the World Series tied up as the Cardinals and Rangers go down deepinthaheartatexas. The pitching showdown between Colby Lewis and Jaime Garcia was scoreless up until the seventh, when the Cardinals drove in the first, and seemingly the winning run. However, a bloop single by Kinsler in the ninth and some nifty baserunning by Texas allowed the Rangers to tie the game off of a sac fly by Josh Hamilton, and then take the lead off of another sac fly in the next at bat. With the Rangers having taken care of business, the 2010 Rookie of the Year for the American League--closer Neftali Feliz--came in and shut down the Cardinals in the bottom of the ninth, finishing a masterful theft of Game two by the Texas Rangers.

Today is a travel day, so no ballgame. Game Three will be played tomorrow at Rangers Ballpark.


Also Blackhawks snap Avalanche winning streak. :D

Cards 3, Rangers 2

GRRRRR :angry:

At least Carpenter's out of the way. If Texas can win game 2, they'll be in good shape. If not, though, it may be a long offseason for me.

Game 1 Tonight In St. Louis

Posted by LewaLew , in Baseball Oct 19 2011 · 48 views
world series, rangers, cardinals and 6 more...
Get ready, people, the Fall Classic is here.

After upsetting the Phillies in the NLDS, largely due to the stellar pitching of Chris Carpenter, the St. Louis Cardinals have once more reached the World Series, and aim for championship number eleven. (I have the number memorized, thanks to the Cardinals fans living in Central/Southern Illinois.)

The Rangers, meanwhile, have shown that they don't need Cliff Lee by repeating as American League champions after never before reaching the World Series in their existence in both Washington, D.C. and the Lone Star State.

However, in spite of the offensive powerhouses playing on baseball's biggest stage, this World Series is predicted to draw fewer viewers than any World Series since 2006, the last time the Cardinals were in it. Why? It just so happens that no coastal teams are in it. Now, I know many of you are fans of the clubs on the coasts, but seriously, the Cardinals hold power over much of the Midwest, and Texas holds nearly all of the second-largest state in the nation. Yet the almighty Yankees were beaten in the ALDS by the Midwestern Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Phillies were shut down by the Midwestern Cardinals, and the preseason favorite Boston Red Sox crumbled and missed the playoffs entirely. In addition, all of the LCS teams were in the Central divisions except for Texas, although it is technically in the Central United States.

So here's a new issue for you guys to discuss besides bronies: Why do teams not based on the coasts get so little respect, even when they make it to baseball's biggest stage?

World Series

You guys know ought to know which teams are in it, I don't need to tell you.

My prediction is the team not named Rangers in six.

Now if you don't mind, I'll go away and mourn my misfortune.

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen.
Nobody knows the sorrow...

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.
