New, 186 comments

Well, there may be Game 6 of the World Series tonight.  Or there may be rain.  Its still up in the air right now, although indications are that if it looks like it is going to rain, the game will get called early, as MLB doesn't want to have a start-and-stop experience like we had in Game 1 of the ALCS.

Jeff Wilson has a story on the possibility of rain and the game being postponed, and mentions that there's an 80% chance of rain this afternoon and a 50% chance of rain at first pitch.

Mike Bauman of MLB.com writes that a victory would put the Rangers among the elite franchises in MLB.

Evan Grant says that Colby Lewis is the right pitcher for the Rangers in Game 6.

Wilson writes that a key for Texas will be to focus on the game, and not what winning this game would mean.

Jeff Caplan has a story on the two biggest arms in the Ranger bullpen -- Alexi Ogando and Neftali Feliz -- and the question that each of them has looming over them.

Chris Haft of MLB.com says that Adrian Beltre is quietly having a very big World Series.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Ron Washington's managing style, and mentions a couple of players by name who took issue with Wash's style a few years ago, and who ended up gone.

John Schlegel of MLB.com also has a story on Washington.

Drew Davison has a story on Game 6 starter Colby Lewis's journey to Japan and back to the United States.

Jesse Sanchez takes a look at how Nelson Cruz went from AAAA player to impact bat on a World Series team.

Mike Scioscia says that it is ludicrous to suggest the Angels didn't value Mike Napoli, and that you have to wait a few years to see whether or not the Angels got the better end of the Vernon Wells/Napoli trade.
