World Series prediction

I'm taking the Rays in 6. Here's how I see it shaking out:

Rays take the opener behind Kazmir who is able to shut down Utley and Howard. Rays go on to win 3 of the first 4 games with David Price picking up a couple of saves. Hamels wins game 5 at home but the Rays take game 6 back at home.

Series MVP: BJ Upton

Thoughts on game 7

Wow, what a game last night. The Rays go through 5 pitchers in the 8th holding off the Red Sox as they strand the bases loaded. When Barltett made the error to begin the inning, you just knew this was the little opening the Red Sox needed to break through. And they nearly did it...had Coco slid to the base, instead of to the SS, he surely would have been safe, saving them another out.

My Trip to Turner Field

While I was away for a few days to see my sister in Atlanta(who I never did get to see), I decided to head to a place of serious horrors for my team - the infamous Turner Field, or as they call it, "The Ted", to see my New York Mets take on the Atlanta Braves.

At that point, the Mets were right there for both the National League East title, and the NL wild card. As we know by now, they blew both - again. I didn't write to talk about that. Instead, I will say that earlier in the day,… Continue

NLCS and ALCS predictions

I'll stick with the Phillies as my pick to make it to the World Series. I think they have an advantage over the Dodgers in their bullpen and hit with more power. I'll say Phillies in 6.

In the AL, I'm taking the Rays in 7. Home field advantage will be key for the Rays.

One Summer, Three Stadiums

When we got married in 2006, we chose to go to Boston for our honeymoon. Sure, it's an awesome city full of history and touristy things to do. But that wasn't why we wanted to go there. Our sole reason was to go to Fenway Park. From that moment on, we decided that our vacations every year would be to a city where we could see a baseball game. So far, we're 3 for 3.

This summer, we were able to hit three more stadiums this summer, thanks to an out-of-town wedding not far from… Continue
