Good morning. The World Series begins tonight. Josh Lewin gets to call a World Series. Go Mets! But do us a favor and sweep the Royals so we can get on with our lives.
The American League Champion Royals will have Edinson Volquez and Chris Young in their World Series rotation. Imagine trying to tell a Rangers fan that this would occur a decade from then in 2005.
Famed bat-flipper on 300 ft fly outs Torii Hunter has finally retired. He'll be remembered as being far better than he ever actually was.
T.R. Sullivan writes about Prince Fielder winning the Comeback Player of the Year award. He joins the illustrious club shared by Kevin Elster.
Jeff Wilson has more on Fielder's win in a season where he was kind of the inverse of Shin-Soo Choo. There were large parts of the first half where Fielder carried the team offensively and then in the second half, when the Rangers made their run, Fielder really tapered off quickly so it's easy to forget that he actually had a very good year.
Evan Grant takes a look at the catcher position heading into the offseason where Robinson Chirinos is the incumbent top guy but the Rangers could look to upgrade if that's out there (hint: It probably won't be).
Lastly, hey have you ever wanted to work for the Anaheim Angels' front office? Here's your chance to crunch some numbers and help them win some ballgames and who are we kidding, you'll be fetching gelato for Mike Scioscia.
Have a nice day.
