World Series


Recommended Posts

Well, we (the Cards, I think I just joined their organization) are the come back kings... Tis why I wasn't bothered by a 5-0 lead by the opposition. We've came back from 11-0 in extra innings (18 I think) to prove that point. I was up til about 2 am watching that game. No Doubt, It's Red Bird Season :D Now we have to get our clutch hitters, aka Molina, and Freese to hit with men on. Make that boi MVP 2 years straight :D

So, the Cardinals have still another chance tonight to put it away. Is the third time a charm?


Doesn't matter. I'm calling the series now: Tigers in six.


Have a nice day.

Cards' batting has stayed cold as the Giants have hit their stride. One last chance tonight for both teams in a winner take all game.


As far as the World Series, 2010 and 2011 both went to the National League team. The Tigers have some good pitchers and a few good hitters. Either National League team could beat them but, like life, anything can happen over the course of a 7 game series.....Posted Image

No offense Daddy, but STL is vs the Giants Posted Image Rangers were gone long ago Posted Image


I fixed it. I started out to talk about last year and lead into this year but changed and then screwed up! That's my story and I am sticking to it!Posted Image

With age comes, well,... no comment... I did laugh about it, so hard I tipped backwards and fell over on my guitar,,smashed it to bits. I have a feeling that tears will be shed later...


Sounds like a good country song to me.

Not that I'm interested after my beloved Reds got ran out of their home field by the Giants.... what is the outcome of the Giants/Cards series? I honestly haven't watched any baseball since the reds hit the shitter... I don't know who I want to win.. I despise the Giants this year... but I'll probably always despise the Cardinals...


So Goooo Giants.. :D (My present to you Cardinal fans.. the Giants are doomed now).. Posted Image

While I was rooting for the Giants, I was hoping for a much closer game. I don't believe I've ever watched a game where absolutely everything went in one team's favor. The real kicker was Hunter Pence's hit in the bottom of the 3rd - where the ball hit his bat 3 times as it (the bat) broke apart. There was the suggestion that this messed up Pete Kozma's defensive response on the play with him moving to his right first (just a tad) and then to his left just missing the ball. had Kozma caught that ball, things might well have been different.


I was cheering for the Giants as I'm a big Buster Posey fan. Buster didn't do much at the plate in this series. I'm just so impressed with the year he had after coming back from that horrific injury he suffered in 2011. I understand he won the comeback player of the year award for that and he's still in a contender for the MVP award for the NL for 2012.


I was happy about Marco Scutaro getting the NLCS MVP award. He certainly earned it. He makes the last out to boot - all part of this "fairy tale" game.


I would also say that Mike Matheny warrants consideration when MLB hands out Manager of the year awards.


I believe my team, the Blue Jays, is still fighting for the cellar in the AL East with the Red Sox. Posted Image And the Red Sox just stole our manager.

Jim Leyland, the Tigers' manager, made a great comment following tonight's game. He was asked if he was concerned about the Giants' momentum after taking 3 straight games in the LCS and now game 1 in the Series. Leyland responed that he didn't believe in momentum. He said momentum is tomorrow's starting pitcher. Great perspective.

Giants win Game one with Sandoval hitting 3 homers. Final was 8-3.


Sandoval joined an elite group - Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols - by hitting the three homers in a single World Series game.

True, but he started game 1 with his best pitcher and Verlander was no match for the Giants.....

These next two games will be key, Game 3 especially. If San Fran were to win Game 3 in Detroit, then I'd say the Tigers are all but cooked. :P If they win Game 2...it doesn't look good for Detroit, but they'd have another shot to win in San Fran by winning all three at home.


Detroit is the team that has yet to lose at home this post-season...though one should keep San Fran's NLDS in mind, where neither they nor Cincy won a single game at home. :P

      Alright everyone. I'm finally finding some free time to start writing Triple Play, the third installment in Devin Williams' life. I know it's been a long wait, but I've had a lot of school stuff to do and will in the future, so it's going to be slow going. Having said that, I'm very excited by what I've got planned for this third novel, and I hope you like where I take Devin and Bryce in the midpoint of the series.
      Without further commentary, here's a sneak peek of what's going to be going on in Chapter 1. Let me know what you think, and as always thanks for reading!
      “Dear Mr. Williams;
        Upon your return to campus, you are required to meet with an academic advisor to discuss your athletic scholarship. Please ensure that you book an appointment with an academic advisor as soon as possible to discuss funding for your upcoming academic year.
        Whitman College looks forward to your return.”
        All along the drive back to Whitman I re-read the letter I’d received from the school, hoping that there was some kind of mistake that would explain away why I’d suddenly been dropped from the scholarship. I’d arranged a meeting for later today like the letter had asked, but the only thing I could think of was that the school didn’t think I deserved a scholarship anymore because of how little I’d played in the previous year.
        It wasn’t my fault. I didn’t ask to be attacked and be on the disabled list for most of the year, and the worst part was that because I had been playing in games before and after the attacks, it wouldn’t even count as a redshirt year, so I ended up wasting most of my eligibility on recovery and being in the hospital.
        Dad dropped me off at Phi Delta Theta’s house and helped me unload things. I wasn’t too surprised to see that most of the brothers hadn’t yet arrived back from the Summer break; a lot of them were coming from out of state, and wouldn’t arrive until the last couple days before classes began. I knocked on the door with my stuff and was surprised when Bryce was the one who let me in. I embraced and squeezed him when he pulled the door open for me.
        “Bryce! Good to see you, I missed you. I’m surprised to see that you’re already here though, I thought you wanted to spend the last couple of days with your family?”
        “I did, but I figured you’d be coming back soon anyways, so I may as well claim a room that’s going to be big enough for both of us, and of course one that’s far enough away from the other rooms that they won’t hear all of what we’re going to be doing.” Bryce said with a smirk.

      Hi guys,
      I know baseball is massive in america,so im betting on being out voted here but I feel nothing can beat an amazing game of football, not the american type where there knocked each other to the ground, the English game and probably the biggest sport in the world. im not gonna ask which you all think is the best becuse ill be out voted i just wanted to ask what you prefer.
