"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Swing Time


The ALCS is going back to Boston. Only question is, which team will have a 3-2 lead?

We’re rooting for the Tigers but I think the Sox will win, which means zilch because I always think they’ll win.¬†Worst case scenario. That’s how I operate. So that says the Sox win. (Then again if the Tigers win that just means I think the Sox’ll win the next two at home.)

Just file me under hopeless hater, Red Sox division, American League.

Ah, never mind the angst:

Let’s Go Tig-ers!

Should be a good game. Will the Sox crack Anibal the Cannibal this time? He walked six in six last time -- can they work him again and this time make him pay?

(Speaking of making him pay: I've decided it's definitely correct to make Phil Hughes a qualifying offer.)

Posted the answer just now, sorry for not making it at six.

Hmmm... Nolan Ryan resigned/retired from his role as CEO of the Rangers today. A lot could be read into this; Texas definitely peaked under his guidance, but a lot has happened since then and factions started forming. Even in leaving, the club says he retired while he says he resigned; the implication being that he felt he was being marginalized and decided to let go and wait around for an invitation elsewhere.

I dunno, how much of the development of their pitchers can you give credit to him and/or Daniels? I'm certain some club is going to want to talk to him about an advisory role; if I were Cash I'd consider it based on what we've seen from our own farm. Unless someone knows something I don't, like Showalteresque megalomania tendencies...

Miggy can only go base to base.

Mike Napoli is pissing me off.

Uh oh.
Sanchez solved?

That could be the ball game, that inning. Lester could well hold the Tigers to two.

Well, let's see.
