Yanks, Rangers On Verge Of Sweeps, Giants Freak Out Braves

Posted by LewaLew , Oct 08 2010 · 616 views


I was hoping for all five game series, but this year is looking to be full of sweeps. Pettitte held up, while Pavano couldn't hold back New York, and so the Twins will have to win all three of the next few games--including two in enemy territory at Yankee Stadium.

Likewise, the Rays are headed to Arlington, Texas, where they must also win three in a row to advance, and unlike the Twins, they have to face the third of Texas' top three pitchers in Colby Lewis--not the more questionable Yankees' pitching staff. Even so, if both teams do manage to win two on the road, they would still have to face the opposing teams' aces in C.C. and Cliff Lee. It's looking bleak, in other words.

Meanwhile, game 1 of the NLDS went to the Giants, as Tim Lincecum shut down the Braves. The Freak may not be one of the Cy Young contenders this year, but he's still one of the best in the NL, behind Philly's Halladay, St. Lou's Wainwright, and Colorado's Jimenez.

Today, the second games of both National League Division Series will be played. In Philly, Bronson Arroyo will try to help his team avoid being in the situation the Twins and Rays are facing, but it will be a hard task as the 'O' in the H2O phormula of the Phillies' pitching staff, Roy Oswalt.

In San Francisco, Tommy Hanson will try to help his team split the two games in AT&T Park, but he's got to face Matt Cain of the Giants.

It may be a little late for predictions, but I'll tell you mine anyway. Yanks sweep, Phils sweep. Garza wins game 3 but Rangers win game 4 to advance, Giants win in 5, with game 5 won by the Freak.

I'm worried about the Rays' chances. They've played horribly sloppy - during yesterday's game I preferred to watch how they made lead on "Modern Marvels" on the History channel rather than see them getting blown out by the Rangers. sad.gif

I've noticed that the Rays' defense had been particularly rotten. A lot of bad fielding.

The Rays also have not had any real hard hit balls in the gaps. All the ones hit well are right to the fielders.

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.
