NL Wild Card Game

Stinkin' Cardinals.

Although I also blame the umps--that infield fly call was terrible. Were there replacement umps also?


Teddy Roosevelt, Miguel Cabrera, and the A's

postseason, nationals, athletics and 2 more...
Big day in baseball, if not quite as thrilling as last year thanks to the new Wild Cards.

Firstly, Teddy Roosevelt, the perrenial loser of the only post-sausage mascot race to actually be any good, the Washington Nationals' Presidents' Race, finally won his first race on the last Nationals game of the regular season. I wonder how long the idea to give Teddy a win the year the Nats won the pennant.

Secondly, for the first time in 45 years, the Cubs have 100 losses.

Owait, wrong story. I meant Miguel Cabrera won Major League Baseball's Triple Crown. While not as rare as the horse racing Triple Crown, it has been a good long time, as the last fella to pull it off was Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 for the Boston Red Sox. There has been some debate over whether Miguel Cabrera should get the MVP or if the Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout should enjoy the honor. If you ask me, any guy who wins the Triple Crown deserves the MVP. You can't get much better offensively than that, and he's not too shabby with the glove either. What a way to react to losing your position to that guy they got from Milwaukee, hmm?

Thirdly, the Oakland Athletics. The White Elephants have been pretty dismal for most of the past decade, with only the Seattle Mariners to give them company, but this year they really pulled it out. Not only did they make it past the team that picked up Albert Pujols (although the Halos were underachievers this year), but on the last day of the season they swiped the pennant from the Texas Rangers, forcing the two-time defending AL champions to thank the MLB for approving the new Wild Card game that still gives them a shot. If they can beat the Fighting Showalters, that is.

As a side note, due to the A's winning the division crown, both of last years World Series teams are in the playoffs only because of the new Wild Card expansion. Hopefully, the Rangers can make the most of it, and the Braves can tomohawk-chop the Redbirds out into the offseason. Both Wild Card games are on tomorrow on TBS.


BZP Bucket List

Posted by LewaLew , in Baseball, BZPower Sep 29 2012 · 434 views

I don't know if I've mentioned it before or not, but come college, I will be leaving BZPower. However, I still have a few things I want to do before that time comes, and I think I will do better if I have some sort of list.

1) Finish A Tale of Two Paths
2) Win an RPG contest sometime next summer.
3) Re-read all of GaliGee's stories--finish on the final day of my time here.
3) Do some actual BaseBlogging next baseball season and this postseason.
4) Be a better reporter than I was a Reference Keeper.
5) Write a Short Story on any subject, and post in the Library. Cannot be a contest entry.
6) Write an Editorial in tme to post it on the last Wednesday before college, detailing what I feel concerning my time on BZPower, to place in either the BaseBlog, or send to the front page. Whichever is most appropriate.
7) Make a helpful contribution to BS01 in the last week, no matter how small.
8) Visit the KanohiJournal website one last time.
9) Finish the BaseBlog off with a postseason preview.
10) Make my final post in one of GaliGee's story topics, just as my first one was, if I remember correctly.

Many of these are more of something I want my last week to be like, but they're no less important than the others. I'll probably put these in the sidebar as a more efficient reminder.

Play Ball! - Opening Series In Japan

Posted by LewaLew , in Baseball Mar 28 2012 · 367 views
mariners, athletics, opening week and 6 more...

Major League Baseball opened this year by taking a page from the book of the National Hockey League. The NHL always opens overseas, usually in three different countries in Europe, in what they refer to as the "Compuware NHL Premiere" games. This year, the boys of summer start their year over at the Tokyo Dome, home of the Yomiuri Giants of Nippon Professional Baseball, in the two game Opening Series between the Seattle Mariners and the Oakland (perhaps soon to be San Jose in the coming years) Athletics.

Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics, at the Yomiuri Giants' Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan.

King Felix took the mound for the Mariners while the Oakland A's put their hopes for a good start to the season in the hands of Brandon McCarthy, before a sold-out crowd in the largest city in the world. McCarthy, a relative no-name next to Seattle's 2010 Cy Young winner, matched Hernandez for seven innings in the Land of the Rising Sun, in a pitching duel that limited both teams to a lone run each. The lone run for the Mariners came by way of a home run hit by Dustin Ackley. The one run tie lasted for ten innings until Japanese star, Ichiro tied the Seattle franchise record of four Opening Day hits while also driving in the run that would eventually win the game, though one run worth of padding was added by Ackley before the M's finished off the A's in the bottom of the eleventh. Wilhelmsen, a reliever, was credited with the win, while League got the save, and the A's Carignan was tacked with the loss for Oakland.

Tomorrow: Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics, at the Yomiuri Giants' Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan.
Broadcast on ROOT Sports Northwest, 5:10 AM EST, 2:10 PST. Rebroadcast (for those of you that actually sleep) on MLB Network later on.

Oh, and don't miss the Serpentine once more claim dominion over Ninjago tonight as we claim the last of the FOUR SILVER FANG BLADES and awaken THE GREAT DEVOURER! But the baseball thing is more important of course.

Come, come, as long as we're busy conquering Ninjago, we might as well do the same with Major League Baseball. We already have the Diamondbacks.

As for baseball, Spring Training so far has commenced swimmingly. It's very difficult to make any predictions based from Spring Training, as very few teams give a team effort at this point. However, we can now expect pitchers and teams to get into it, as the regular season returns in less that two weeks.


Spring Is Here!

The M#B started its first spring training games yesterday. The #ong winter is over. COME ON SUMMER!


Status Update On Yours Truly, Lewey, And Beisbol

Posted by LewaLew , in Work/School, Baseball, BZPower Feb 24 2012 · 245 views

I signed up for about 30 hours a week on my application, but I tend to have 35-38.5. This week is one of those 38.5 weeks. Between school and work, RKing is one of the last things I have to think about. Hopefully, I'll be able to help in the summer, but now, I'm bogged down more than a nub-legged McToran in a Le-Wahi swamp.

However, good to hear that Ryan Braun will play. Hopefully due to being cleared. He'd be a disgrace to the sport if he did cheat. As suspected, Pujols and Fielder both went to AL contenders, and I suspect the major pitching FA, Roy Oswalt, will stick to the NL. It's unfortunate he won't stay with Philadelphia. That pitching staff is still stacked without him.


Less Time Available

Posted by LewaLew , in BZPower, Baseball Dec 14 2011 · 310 views

Sorry about not being on BZPower quite as much as usual. Since I got my job I have almost zero time to use the computer. So little that I wasn't even able to write anything about the Pujols signing. And so little that this is all I have the time to say right now.

Just thought it would be a good idea to explain my absence.

Maybe this is how all the other RKs disappeared. :P


Comic Caption Contest: Season Two, Week One

Welcome back to the sideshow that the BaseBlog has actually featured more than actual baseball thanks to the BZP downtime. Once again, updates shall be on Thursdays, and only during the offseason.

And now, for the inaugural photo from the stinkin' World Champions of Baseball and the stinkin' Brewers who let me down in the NLCS against the stinkin' Cardinals:

And congrats to the stinkin' Cardinals. Enjoy it while it lasts. NEXT IS THE CUBS' DYNASTY.



... with a crazy big amount of luck, that is.

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.
