"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The Unfair One


That’s the old term for a fastball pitcher who always has a lethal curve ball. Yeah, the home plate umpire had a generous strike zone last night, but Justin Verlander was a load. What an impressive performance.

I liked the A’s chances against the Red Sox more than I like the Tigers’ chances, but so be it:

Let’s Go Tigers.

Dodgers, Cards, Tigers, Red Sox. This post season (save for the Dodgers move to LA in the late '50s) could have happened in the 1920's. A little bummed about the Buccos and A's not being there, and they had their chances with 2-1 series leads.

If the Tigers starters have the games they are capable of, then Boston could go down, but I've said it here last week; the only team that could match up with the Sox are the Dodgers.

Considering that the Dodgers took the Boston players last year that allowed the reset of the Sox from among the worst to first, I guess you have to name Ben Cherington the baseball executive of the year.

...or Theo for addition by subtraction (of himself).

1) I disagree. I think the Cards are the best team of the 4. They have that thing the late 90s Yankees had. Players that are super dependable when the pressure is on.

I hope the Dodgers win it all this year. Donnie Baseball deserves a ring. He started coaching the Yanks after the rings in 96-2001 and left after 2007, so he didn't get a ring in 2009.

This year he was nearly canned and there is still talk in LA that if he doesn't win it all or at least the NLCS that he will lose his job.

Donnie was always one of my favorite Yankees and was a star when the landscape of the Yanks was pretty barren at times. He had a real shot at a ring in 94 if the season wasn't cut short. He has had very unlucky timing.

I hope the timing is right this year.

It sure would be sweet if the Dodgers beat the Sox too.
