Teddy Roosevelt, Miguel Cabrera, and the A's

postseason nationals athletics triple crown tigers
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.

The Rays had too many injuries over the course of the season - Longoria's most memorably. If they had stayed healthy, there might have been a three-game tie atop the AL East, which would force a one-game playoff to get to the one-game playoff.

I want that to happen one of these years.

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.
