2013 MLB Playoffs - Page 3

post #37 of 66
Thread Starter 
There's still a big chance the Red Sox lose the series, but all I can say is the AL better watch out. Xander Bogaerts has been the most consistent position player on the team this ALCS and he hasn't even been 21 for a month. The plate discipline this kid has is insane.

EDIT: Just as I say that, Shane Victorino, who has had more baseballs hit him than his bat in the ALCS, smacks a grand slam. What a series!

And once crazy eye leaves the game, the series is over.

One could argue that the World Series this year will be a "pure" one. Both the Red Sox and Cardinals had the most wins in their respective leagues (97, 65). It should be a great series.

My team (The Tigers) is done for the season, was hoping we'd pull it off this year, but good season anyways. Best of luck to Boston.

Very small difference between the Sox and Tigers.  Tigers starters were scary good.

Tiger bullpen scary bad! And Leland steps down - says his decision was made in Sept.

Well it is over.  Sox fans can feel good about this one.  They played well and got contributions from just about everyone on the team.  The Cards played well too.  Big Papi, Lester and Koji were outstanding.

Yay, another Boston championship...yawn...

 

Now maybe those neanderthals will shave off their ridiculous duck dynasty beards...

Yeah, I missed most of the games, but followed along with highlights ... it was a good series.  Too bad last night's game had little excitement.

 

I'm amazed at Big Papi, by the way.  Wasn't he supposed to be washed up a couple of years ago?

That's pretty much how I feel.  Whoopty-doo.  I'm pretty much done with that town. ;)

 

I just looked it up ... since 2001, they have at least one championship in EVERY major sport.  And, a total of 8 championships, and 12 championship game(s) appearances.

 

Come on, guys ... maybe spread the wealth a little bit????

Just tell the Chargers and Padres to start growing beards!  And for Pete's sake, get Marty S. back as the head coach!  Who the tell fires a 14-2 coach anyway.

Ugh ... the bane of my football fan existence ... don't remind me!!  Thankfully that d-bag (the fir-er of MS ... AJ Smith) is gone along with Norv.  Good riddance, I say!

Yep.  After it was revealed that he tested positive for PEDs in 2003.  HR's went from 54 to 35 to 23.    BA went from 330 to 260 to 230.  But then he had a miraculous resurgence in his late 30s and at 37 is hitting better than he's hit in 5 years. 

 

That reminds me of this one time in 4th grade....;-)

That long ago??

 

Oh wait ... do you mean that it was revealed that he USED them in '03, or it was REVEALED that he used them in '03?  Either way ... .600+ BA in the World Series???  Impressive.

There was a test in 2003 that a bunch failed, but then the results were kept secret.  In 2007 the Mitchell report named some players, and in 2009, the 2003 test results were leaked.  That's when A-Rod had his interview about the "willy nilly days" when that stuff was popular.  Ortiz's failed test became public in 2009.  His slide started in 2008, though.

OK, that makes sense.  I'm starting to remember it now. :)
