World Series Battle of the Aces

WorldSeriesThe 2010 World Series run has been called by many the Battle of the Aces. With the San Francisco Giants defeating the Philadelphia Phillies over the weekend we saw one Cy Young winner, Roy Halladay, defeated by another two time winner, Tim Lincecum. Now, who better to take the mound against Tim “the Freak” Lincecum in Game 1 of the World Series than another Cy Young Winning, Cliff Lee for the Texas Rangers.

The 2008 Cy Young winner Cliff Lee, has made a name for himself as one of the MLB’s best all time postseason pitchers with a 7-0 record and a 1.26 ERA in eight career post season starts. He has allowed just 2 earned runs over 24 innings this postseason.

Meanwhile, 26 year old Tim Lincecum has earned the respect of many MLB fans with the 98 mph fast ball he is able to generate with his slight 170 lb build as well as his deadly changeup, earning him two Cy Young awards. Continue reading

Yankees Hopeful in Game 6

yankees

The New York Yankees are set to face the Texas Rangers in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series tonight at Rangers Ballpark.

The Rangers will be hungry for revenge after a decisive 7-2 defeat by the Yankees on Tuesday night at the new Yankee Stadium. In a do-or-die situation, the Yankees were able to pull off a win that kept them in contention for the World Series. Now as the series moves to Texas for Game 6 and potentially Game 7, they face an uphill battle.

For Yankees fans seeing a team rise through the ashes is not something new. Many may remember the 2004 ALCS where the Yankees won the first 3 games of the series only to have the Boston Red Sox become the first major league team to rebound from a postseason 3-0 deficit.

Game 6 will see a repeat of Game 2 aces Phil Hughes for the Yankees and Colby Lewis for the Rangers. Continue reading

Battle of the Aces for NLCS

The Giants scraped by the Phillies with a sacrifice fly to left field off of Phillies’ reliever Roy Oswalt to bring Aubrey Huff home. Aubrey had hit a single earlier in the inning, and made it to third off of a single by Buster Posey.

“I got butterflies,” winning pitcher Brian Wilson said. “I got anxiety. I got a mini-ulcer developing, but it’s all worth it. We never lost focus.”

The win brings the Giants one win away from the World Series. Tonight’s Game 5 will see some of the MLB’s finest pitchers battle it out.

Starting pitcher for the Phillies, will be Roy “The Doc” Halladay, Continue reading
