The World Series You're Missing Out On

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Oct 28, 2011

...we’ve all seen or heard about Reggie Jackson’s three-home run performance in the 1977 World Series, and most have heard about Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

Well, for those who have not watched the 2011 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers, baseball’s 107th championship series has had just about all of that, and then some.

In case you missed it, Albert Pujols became just the second player in Major League Baseball history to hit three home runs in a World Series game in the Cards 16-7 game three win over Texas.

As many know, baseballs ALCS is currently being played here in Dallas.

Might As Well

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 27, 2010

I've definitely been off my prediction game this year. In previous years, I had a really good record. A REALLY good record. Not so this year. But what the heck, might as well continue now that I've started.

The World Series starts tonight. It's the Texas Rangers vs the San Francisco Giants. Two unlikely participants, or unlikely in most predictors minds. But here they are. The Giants back for a repeat appearance and the first time Rangers. Lots of storylines with these two teams. Both teams have their strengths and weaknesses.

Team Of Second Chances

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 23, 2010

The Rangers organization kept manager Ron Washington on even after it was revealed he had a problem with cocaine. They stood behind him. They kept him in his job with the Rangers. They believed he could overcome. They took a huge chance. A risk that has paid off in Washington becoming one of those most beloved by his players... (more)

ALCS Preview

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 14, 2010

You know, I have always thought that Ron Washington was a bit....different. He's just not like other managers. He makes decisions that are outside the box, and he has done so yet again for the ALCS.

Instead of going the first game with the ace of his staff Cliff Lee, Washington is going with CJ Wilson. Then, the Rangers will go with Colby Lewis, Cliff Lee, and Tommy Hunter. Very unorthodox to say the least. In another move, the Rangers will carry one less infielder and one more reliever. Washington is thinking outside the box and it just might work out for them.

The Yankees... (more)
