Detroit Tigers Add Relief Help With Dotel

The Detroit Tigers have been pretty quiet at baseball's Winter Meetings. The team is bringing back most of the major contributors from 2011's squad, which lost to Texas in the American League Championship Series. The big headlines were made by Anaheim when they signed slugger Albert Pujols for $254 million and by the Miami Marlins signing Jose Reyes for mucho dinero (120 million). The Tigers quietly added veteran relief pitcher Octavio Dotel to help shore up the middle innings.

St. Louis Ends Improbable Run as World Series Champions

The St. Louis Cardinals were not expected to make the playoffs. 10 and 1/2 games out of contention for the Wild Card at the end of August, they scrapped and clawed their way into the postseason on the very last day of the regular season. Then they had to play the heavily favored Phillies in the Divisional Series and they found a way to knock them off. They upset the Brewers in the NLCS, and were the underdogs going into the World Series against the slugging Texas Rangers. Down 3 games to 2, the Cardinals won an epic Game Six in extra innings after coming from 2 runs behind twice. Game 7, the Rangers scored twice in the opening innning.

Comeback Cardinals Force World Series Game Seven

The Texas Rangers were one strike away from winning their first World Championship. Twice. They had a 7-5 lead with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and two strikes on David Freese. Freese tripled off the right field wall to tie the game at 7-7 and send Game Six of the 2011 World Series into extra innings. The Rangers' Josh Hamilton quieted the crowd at Busch Stadium with a two-run homer in the top of the tenth to put Texas ahead by two runs at 9-7. The Cardinals would not give up.

Grounds Crewman Busts A Move at World Series Game 4 [VIDEO]

The Texas Rangers were firing on all cylinders Sunday, as they beat the St. Louis Cardinal 4-0 in game four of the World Series. The grounds crew was no exception, as one of its workers busted out some pretty cool dance moves during field maintenance at Arlington Stadium.

Hit the jump for the video. By the way, Major League Baseball dedicated game four to cancer research, and "Stand Up To Cancer."

I wonder if this was planned.

Scotty McCreery Flubs National Anthem at World Series Game [VIDEO]

Flubbing the National Anthem is becoming a tradition. Actually, American Idol Scotty McCreery made a good recovery after some technical difficulties at Wednesday night's World Series game between the Cardinals and Rangers. But about a minute later he joined the ranks of Christina Aguilera, Roseanne Barr, and many others as he seemed to flub, "Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave..."

 

 

 

"No José does that star-spangled banner yet wave..."? Would that be José ValVerde? José Cuervo? José Feliciano?

Take a look for yourself.

Detroit Tigers Force Game 6 in ALCS With Win

We had our ace, Justin Verlander on the mound for a "win or go home" game 5 in the best of 7 American League Championship Series against Texas. The Rangers quieted the crowd with a run in the top of the first inning, and this looked like it might end badly. The Tigers would have none of that today, as Alex Avila finally got hold of one and hit a solo homer in the 3rd to tie the game at 1-1. Delmon Young connected in the 4th to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead.

Detroit Tigers Blown Out In Extra Innings, Valverde Gives Up 4 in 11th

Jose Valverde is still perfect in save situations this season. The problem is that he has been pretty awful in non-save situations all year long. Tonight, in a non-save situation he was blown out again. After an 8 pitch 10th inning, Valverde gave up a double to Josh Hamilton on the very first pitch of the 11th. After striking out the next hitter, the Tigers elected to intentionally walk Adrian Beltre to pitch to Mike Napoli in hopes of inducing a double play.
