Default World Series 2011

The Rangers are 1 win away from bringing home the Commissioner's Trophy to Texas for the first time ever! Tough break for Pujols, who'll have to watch Napoli awarded MVP. Albert's truly was the most amazing post-season hitting since Reggie. He's a legend and a shoo-in for HoF; he'll get over it. Go Rangers!

That would be the 'World Series' which only includes teams from one country?

So far most of the games look like the first week of spring training (and that included the home plate umpires).
Fielders missing slow rolling grounders, missing underhand tosses and running the wrong direction.
Some of the base running (or slow jogging) is just as bad).
And Fox TV coverage sucks compared to TBS.

It's had its share of bad calls and sub-par play, but overall it's been pretty good IMO. Tim McCarver is the best color commentator in baseball by far. If the Cards should happen to win, I can be happy for New Braunfels native Lance Berkman. He couldn't quite get there with the Astros.

Fat Elvis! I saw him play during a rehab assignment with the Round Rock Express.

The weather has impacted several of the play-off games (and may again tonight), with conditions more suitable for football (both US & World). Some of the indoor games were impacted by sun glare! With the late Fall sun coming in at a low angle and reflecting back onto the field.
