    Liked Steiner. The Yankee radio guy and the White Sox' Harrelson are the worst I have ever heard. They will both never stop with the ridiculous calls because ESPN and the MLB TV net continue to use their junky catch phrases for sound bites.

    In the right situation, Steiner is fine.


    But, with Sterling & Steiner you had two extremely strong play-by-play men paired together and their personalities competed with each rather than complementing each other.

    Looks like I'm going to have to root for the Tigers or Rangers in the WS.

    Robert, Yes, most definitely. But living in Michigan for the past twenty years, I do root for Detroit teams to do well, and the 1968 series (with the Tigers coming back from 1-3 to win behind Lolich et al.) is a memory I have cherished for many years. But my heart will always be with the Boston teams.

    Me too, as I just can't get myself to root for either of the NL teams leftover. I may lean towards the Tigers, though.

    Looks like Theo might be leaving Boston for Chicago. Good for him as he can be his own man there without LL looking over his shoulder.

    Can't see the point in a postseason thread with the World Series tied up 2-2, but it's been a tight World Series this year, 2 close games split to start the WS, and then a laugher with Pujols going deep 3 times in game 3, and now the Rangers shut out/down the Cards in game 4. It's still anyone's championship.

    Unless it's the Phillies or the Mets I always root for the NL team in the WS.

    I am not sure if their is a thread for the MLB PLAYOFF. I was surprised that there were no comments about the world series Game 6. If you look at the link:


    http://tracking.si.com/2011/10/28/dallas-fox-station-alerted-viewers-that-the-rangers-had-won-the-world-series-in-the-9th-inning/?sct=mlb_t2_a11


    It stated that the Texas team had won the World series (BEFORE the 9th inning had ended!).

    I ended up switching between game 6 and the Halloween marathon. When the Rangers went up 7-4, I thought they had that game in the bag.


    Well, congrats to the St. Louis Cardinals for winning the 2011 World Series. Not easy for me to say, as they did it at the expense of the Phillies, who should have been there.


    Wow, this thread is only 5 pages, even less than the Breaking Bad thread.

    I've been meaning to write this sooner. I must assume not many people saw Game 6 pf the world series.ö It was one of the best games ever. Twice St. Louis late in the 9th and 10th innings had 2 outs and 2 strikes. 3 Strikes would have made Texas the champion but they didn't get it. In the 11th inning, St. Louis got a walkoff homer run to win. I am surprised that there was no real comment about this.
