    I guess 2-0, Philadelphia was a little
    too much to ask…

    So the Series now stands at 1-1, and I have watched WAY more of this series than I expected to, or even wanted to, for that matter, but its like a train wreck, I just can’t NOT look. But I have to admit–watching Cliff Lee mow down the Skanks on Wednesday was highly entertaining–and how […]

    Mauer, Pujols Named MVP, By Baseball Bloggers Alliance

This fragment was the main cause of the weakness in his leg. Apparently, he can […]

    Well, at least it’s getting a little bit interesting…

    I thought the Angels were done–as the innings grew and the gridlock stayed at 4, I thought they would blink: another stupid error, or missed opportunity, and the Skanks would be sitting on top of a 0-3 lead–Fortunately, backup catcher Jeff Mathis saved the day with a RBI double in the 11th inning to give […]

    Not working out the way I thought it would…

    I have been saying all along that the Angels would have a better shot of beating the Skanks in the ALCS than they Sox would, given the issues the Sox had to deal with all year (Don’t need to beat the dead horse by listing them again). Apparently, I was wrong. Sloppy plays, multiple errors, […]
