And now for my weekend post – something REALLY controversial. Again, a reminder, when you write your angry hate comments on this upcoming piece, include your name.
Here are my World Series final thoughts:
When Jeff Weaver wins the clinching game of the Fall Classic you know we’re living in a world gone mad.
If the Tigers weren’t so young and inexperienced I’d wonder if we didn’t have another Black Sox scandal brewing. (And still I’d like to know who Tony Soprano had money on.) It was staggering how many errors the Tigers made, not to mention baserunning blunders, and inept hitting. Far from a championship team, they looked like a fat man’s picnic out there.
And they STILL beat the Yankees.
Now I know why the A’s fired their manager after being swept by this bunch.
Was there ever a more boring World Series? When “Schmootzgate” is the big story, you know you’re not seeing one for the ages.
Hope you got the chance to hear Jon Miller’s play-by-play on ESPN radio. He made the World Series sound, well…exciting even.
Did you ever think the Cardinals would win a World Series where Pujols batted .200?
Joe Buck on TV was his usual excellent self. And even on those very rare occasions when Tim McCarver made a good point (when he didn’t have the wrong score or was misidentifying a player) he repeated himself six or seven times until you still wanted to kill him anyway.
“Now it counts” – that big All-Star win for the American League giving them homefield advantage really was important.
I-Rod had a World Series worthy of A-Rod.
I loved the sign at Busch Stadium “Clone Suppan”.
So typical. the network showing series stars in the stands. Of course, since it’s Fox, the biggest star I saw was the crazed guy who plays Tea Bag on PRISON BREAK.
Maybe fielding practice for pitchers should not be exclusive to Spring Training.
With all the rainouts I was kinda hoping for a World Series/Superbowl doubleheader.
In victory or defeat, Jim Leyland is the classiest manager in baseball.
David Eckstein was a worthy MVP… although a case could be made for Yadier Molina.
Doesn’t it seem like one of the Molina brothers is always in the World Series?
Tiger fans can take great comfort in knowing Kenny Rogers WOULD have won the sixth game if there was one.
MLB is selling DVD’s of this year’s World Series. Biggest seller should be the rainout night when Fox showed a WAR AT HOME marathon.
Commissioner Bud Selig called this World Series a remarkable end to a remarkable season. Bud, that champagne is for spraying, not drinking.
How many days until pitchers and catchers report?
