Remember the infield, built from within the organization, that seemed to last forever? It was Garvey at first, Lopes at Second, Russell at Short, Cey at Third and Yeager doing the catching. Wonder what they are thinking now about the Dodger legacy.

Is this how they envisioned baseball would become 30 years later?

Josh Hamilton was sick. Literally. Saturday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, Hamilton needed oxygen and an IV after the game. Despite not feeling well, the slugger for the Texas Rangers was a hero yet again.

With the Rangers down by a run in the 13th inning, Hamilton hit a two-run homer to give the Rangers an 8-7 victory.

The Los Angeles Angels were desperate for a win on Sunday night against the Texas Rangers. How desperate? They sent out their $85 million man Jered Weaver on three days of rest. The gamble ended up being a bad decision as the Rangers blasted the Angels by a final score of 9-5.

Weaver came into the game with the lowest ERA in the American League but couldn't do much of anything right on short rest.

Will World Series 2011 Provide Momentum for MLB 2012?

Last year's incredible comeback win in the World Series by the St. Louis Cardinals over the Texas Rangers was breathtaking. So much so, that it could have won over new fans to the sport.

MLB must capitalize on what transpired to create more momentum for this upcoming season.

Ron Washington Gets Extension

The Footie at related • 0 views

A lot of critics blamed Ron Washington for the Texas Rangers not winning the 2011 World Series. If you ask me, that's totally unfair. Washington has guided the Rangers to two recent World Series and has done so by allowing his teams to peak at the right time.

The Rangers seem to agree that Washington is not the problem and have decided to give him a two-year extension.

Blue Jays Sign Darren Oliver

The last time we saw Darren Oliver, he was blowing a save in the World Series for the Texas Rangers. The old wily veteran won't be returning to Texas. Instead, he has signed a one-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays. The contract also includes a team option for a second season.

The 41-year-old is still a very effective pitcher.

Matt Holliday can't be happy right now. The superstar for the St. Louis Cardinals will miss Game 7 of the World Series due to a wrist injury. Instead of Holliday, the Cardinals will turn to Allen Craig in left field.

Usually being without Holliday would be a huge loss but he's been struggling with injuries throughout the playoffs and has struggled recently.

Bad news for the Texas Rangers. Not only do they have to recover from choking in Game 6, they have to bounce back against Chris Carpenter. The St. Louis Cardinals ace has been in a ton of big games and has a proven track record of stepping up big.

For proof, you just have to look back to the Cardinals series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

I admit it. We were dead wrong. After questioning the wisdom of the Tampa Bay Rays for starting Matt Moore in Game 1 against the Texas Rangers, Moore went out there and dominated. And really, "dominated" doesn't give the kid enough credit.

Why is Matt Moore starting? First of all, he's a major talent.
