    He’s got three rings now, but it’s No. 3 that David Ortiz can wear with the most pride.Pride for this city he plays in, and pride in the way he plays for this city.David Ortiz won the 2013 World Series Most Valuable Player award in a decision that could only be described as a complete lock midway through the series. It was as much of a lock as this entire Red Sox season came out of the blue in so many ways, both tragic and ecstatic.Ortiz dominated Cardinals pitching in the first five games to the point that, by Game 6...

    A potential Obama visit to World Series Game 6 at Fenway Park is off again, after sources told the Herald that Boston police were planning for the possibility. Boston police said President Obama is not expected to go to Fenway. The discussions that would have had to have taken place prior to that happening have not occurred. There is no indication he is going to the game, said Superintendent in Chief Daniel Linskey. City officials today announced preliminary security plans for the home game at a press conference today. They are asking fans with tickets to take the T if...
  • Where's Craig Kimbrel? Not in the game (Oct. Baseball Live Thread)

    ESPN ^ | October 8, 2013 | David Schoenfield
    Craig Kimbrel is supposedly the heir to Mariano Rivera. In his postseason career as closer, Rivera recorded 27 appearances of 2+ innings. Uribe bunted two balls foul, ... and then tomahawked a high fastball from David Carpenter into left-field stands for a shocking two-run homer .... Note that I wrote "David Carpenter" and not "Craig Kimbrel." The Braves had to win this game. Lose, and they go home. Somehow they lost -- in the late innings, no less -- without using the most dominant relief pitcher in the game. The sad thing is, Gonzalez apparently didn't even think of using...

    A baseball fan got the steal of a lifetime. Someone selling a ticket to game 1 of the World Series at Fenway Park accidentally sold a ticket on StubHub for $3 dollars. Not $300, not $3,000 but 3 bucks! The receipt of the sale was posted on Deadspin. With the service fee the lucky fan named Eric was able to wrap up the whole sale for $6 dollars. Heres a map of where the ticket is and its not even in the upper deck! The lucky fan might even be able to snag a foul ball from the seat. The...

    Game Seven. In the realm of sport ($1 to RINO Romney), those are two stirring words. And in just a few hours, the San Antonio Spurs have a shot at redemption after frittering away what should have been a slam dunk for a fifth NBA title and a deserved crowning of a dynasty. Game six is still fresh in my mind. Not only Tuesday's collapse when the Spurs were up by 5 with 20 seconds left. Yet another game six is still painful for this Texan. That of course was the 107th World Series when the Rangers were two...

    DETROIT -- Marco Scutaro singled home the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Sunday night to complete a four-game sweep and win their second World Series title in three years. Ryan Theriot, who went hitless for St. Louis in Game 7 of last year's Series, singled softly into right field off Phil Coke opening the 10th. Brandon Crawford sacrificed, nearly bunting the ball past Coke. Angel Pagan struck out and Scutaro singled into short center field as Theriot slid home ahead of Austin Jackson's throw.

    Not that anyone in California would be allowed by law to pollute the environment with such a behemoth of a vehicle, but one garage near AT&T Park in San Francisco was charging "Full Size" SUVs and trucks $130 to park for Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night. Hummers get no breaks, you know? But, if you drive a "compact SUV" or a "Minivan," it'll cost you only a cool hundred. It's 90 bucks for a car the size of a Prius or a '69 Dodge Dart.

    Political suicide? President Obama appeared on the Tonight Show last night where he admitted that he's leaning toward rooting for the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. And what a real slap in the face this is to San Francisco, which has practically bankrolled his 2012 presidential campaign. His words exactly: "I will say, I've spent a lot of time in Detroit lately, and I didn't want to let Detroit go bankrupt. So in this particular World Series, I might be a little partial," Obama said in comments taped before the Tigers lost the opening game of the series to...

Jeter suffered the injury while fielding a ground ball in the top of the 12th inning, with New York trailing 5-4. He immediately went down in pain, staying face down momentarily.

    October 28, 2011--The St. Louis Cardinals have won the world series in an improbable, luck-filled and quirky convergence of events. For example, the number of dribblers Lance Berkman hit that rolled like bocci balls through the infield was exceeded only by the dribbles in Tony LaRussa's depends. Okay, let's allow these Cardinal fan cretins a little superficial happiness for once. It has probably been years since some of these fat losers have even cracked a smile. But the real story of the 2011 world series is that the all time villan of MLB, Tony LaRussa,a piece of human garbage and...

It was legendary broadcaster Jack Buck who famously said, "And we'll see you tomorrow night," after Twins center fielder Kirby Puckett launched a solo homer to lead off the bottom of the 11th inning at the Metrodome to send the Series to a...

    Their 25th anniversary seems to be more sober than an awful lot of the team was. But Allen Barra is right. Twenty-five years ago tonight launched the 1986 World Series, which the New York Mets would win in rather dramatic fashion. There was and remains nothing wrong with that. The 1986 Mets may have steamrolled the National League on the regular season, but there was nothing like a pair of hair-raising postseason sets to remind people that even teams as good as those Mets have to work, good and hard, for their prizes. Yet it seems as though even Met...

    Jim Leyland was emphatic enough. Seeing Justin Verlander on the mound again this postseason was going to be the best thing, he said, because it would come in the World Series. As for the rest of the American League Championship Series, Verlander wouldnt even be a topic. Not in the Detroit Tigers managers mind, anyway. And it proved a moot point after the game, gutsy, but gimpy Tigers took one of the worst elimination beatings in postseason history in Arlington Saturday night. If the Tigers or their minions werent going to see Verlander the rest of the postseason, its probably...

    Amid beer and champagne flowing in the clubhouse of the San Francisco Giants late Monday, one thing was missing. The president. Not the president of the ball club.

Giants players and personnel thought they'd hear from President Barack Obama by telephone after San Francisco beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 to capture its first World Series title since 1954. But Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter tells KNTV they have yet to take that call. Slaughter says team personnel gave the White House the private line into manager Bruce Bochy's office, as well as...

A rare mix of veteran rejects and budding stars completed an unlikely ascent to the Major League summit Monday night, allowing all to repeat a five-word phrase never before heard: World Series champion San Francisco Giants. The Giants made franchise history with a 3-1 triumph over the Rangers in Game 5 of the World Series, ignoring their underdog status to capture the 106th Fall Classic, four games to one. An unlikely hero combined with a likely one to elevate San Francisco to new heights.

A superb performance by 21-year-old rookie left-hander Madison Bumgarner helped San Francisco claim a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Fall Classic. Home runs by Aubrey Huff and Buster Posey provided the firepower for the Giants, now one win away from clinching their first Major League Baseball championship since 1954 when they played in New York. Game Five of the Series will be played on Monday, with San Francisco sending...
