Well, so much for my Tigers/Brewers World Series match up. The Tigers are officially out and in a few hours the Brewers may be too.
In just a few minutes we’ll see Shaun Marcum take on Edwin Jackson, both former Jays (though Jackson’s tenure was a mere few minutes.)
Over in the A.L. the Rangers (Nelson) Cruz’d to the Fall Classic with a 15-5 victory. I have to hand it to the Rangers, they did all of this without Cliff Lee, who left them for Philly in the off-season. He continues to look for his first World Series ring while the Rangers advanced without his help. Think of all the money they saved.
While I was pulling for the Tigers, I’m not too upset that the Rangers made it in. Having read Josh Hamilton’s auto-biography that detailed his battle with drugs, I have nothing but respect for him. A ring would be a nice finish to that story.
That’s all I got for now. Time to tune into the Brewers/Cards game and see if the Brewers made the right choice giving up Brett Lawrie for Marcum.
