World Series 2011 Game Two: Forever Young

Ian Kinsler (pictured above) steals second in Game 2. Oddly similar to the 1975 World Series, Dave Concepcion (Cincinatti Reds, then managed by Sparky Anderson) stole second and scored on a 3-2 game-winning double by Ken Griffey which tied the seies at a game apiece.

MLB Championships: Holliday for the Cards!

Matt Holiday

On Friday, October 14th, Matt Holliday and his teammates put a whuppin’ on the Brewers, 7-1. Though Holliday, Molina and clan did hit the ball well, the Brewers’ defense looked like the first day of Spring training. Error after error contributed to more unearned runs scored than the earned kind. Zack Greinke did not have […]
