Braves Vs. Giants Preview

Posted by LewaLew , Oct 07 2010 · 53 views
Both of these teams are lucky to be here. The Giants beat Mat Latos and the Padres on the last day of the season, eliminating the Padres and winning the West for San Francisco, as well as the Wild Card for the Atlanta Braves. Now the two will face off at AT&T Park for what will probably be the right to face the Phillies and Roy Halladay, the man who no-hit the Cincinnati Reds yesterday. So it looks bleak even for the team that wins this series, but even the mightiest of teams can be taken down by another one that happens to get hot at the right time.

Anyhow, the pitchers who will be tossing for the game 1 win are Derek Lowe for the Braves, and two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum for the Giants. Obviously, the advantage goes to the Giants, who will be at home with their ace, but the Braves still have a good shot, as Lincecum has not been as dominant in 2010 as in past years, and because the Giants have a relatively weak offense once you get past Buster Posey. In addition, the Braves have a more reliable lineup, even without Martin Prado, as they have the advantages of Jason Heyward, Derrek Lee, Omar Infante, and Ted Williams All-Star Game MVP Award winner Brian McCann, the Braves have what it takes to take down the 2010 edition of Tim Lincecum.

Plus, I'm rooting for Bobby Cox and his Braves to win one more World Series for him. biggrin.gif


One Goal: Defending The Cup

Posted by LewaLew , Oct 07 2010 · 39 views
And a very difficult task that will be, in the current era of the National Hockey League. Ever since the '05 lockout, four different teams have failed to carve their names on the Stanley Cup twice in a row. The Hurricanes couldn't do it, nor could the Ducks. Not even the continuously dominant Detroit Red Wings could beat out the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009, and the Penguins then found themselves eliminated this year by the surprising Montreal Canadiens in the second round. And starting today, at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

The Hawks had the fourth best record in their division, and ninth best in the conference in the preseason. Now, that might seem pretty poor for a Stanley Cup Champion, but you've gotta remember that preseason is just a time to get your team in shape, and almost never do you have all of your best players on the ice in the same game. Plus, you might add that one of the favorites to snatch the Cup out of Chicago, the Detroit Red Wings, are the only team in the Central Division that finished with a lower record than the Hawks.

Anyhow, you can expect the usual fast paced playing style of the Hawks, but this year, made even faster with the addition of Marty Turco, whose ability to handle the puck will force the opposition to never be able to let down their guard, even when the puck is in the Hawks' zone.

In addition, the official start of hockey season begins in half an hour, when the Hurricanes play the Wild in Helsinki on Versus.


What Are My Chances, Doc?

Posted by LewaLew , Oct 06 2010 · 44 views
None, says Doc Halladay, as he no-hits the Cincinnati Reds in the second ever no-hitter in Postseason history, preceded only by Don Larsen's perfect game. Halladay also has his second no-hitter this year, his first being his perfect game against the Marlins, and this one would have been a perfect game were it not for Jay Bruce's walk--the only blemish of the night.

I myself was watching the game from the start. I always jokingly say the first time anyone gets on base "There goes the perfect game.", but I noticed around the fourth that I hadn't said that yet. In the fifth, I brought myself to ask my mom if anyone had been on base yet, but she had not really been paying attention, and so I figured that I was probably right. Unfortunately, I did end up saying "There goes the perfect game." after Bruce walked, but I never was able to say that the no-hitter was lost.

Mark it down. October 6, 2010 was a historic day in baseball.


Bottom Of The Ninth, 5-1 Rangers

Posted by LewaLew , Oct 06 2010 · 37 views
Feliz was looking to shut down the Rays in the bottom of the ninth, after walking the first batter. The Rangers were three outs away from taking a 1-0 lead in the series thanks in a large part to Cliff Lee, who, today, has been everything he was meant to be when he came over from Seattle.

Meanwhile, Cliff's old team, the Phillies, would be starting Game 1 of the NLDS in 27 minutes against the Cincinnati Reds at home in Citizens bank Park.

Feliz walked the second straight batter in a row before shutting down the Rays in the bottom of the ninth. Next up, Reds and Phils.


Nuva Team Assembled

Just got a new rank: Nuva Team Assembled. The only real difference is that the Kanohi Nuva are no longer in protodermis.

As a side note, Rangers and Rays face off at the Trop in ten minutes. biggrin.gif

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.
