Hello, baseball fans! Handy Randy's back. I know, I know; you are asking, "Where have you been?" Well, I was in a state of shock at the Texas Rangers defeat at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2011 World Series.
I am just starting to get over the shock of the Rangers being that close, but no; they let it ALL slip away at what should have been the end of the season and the 2011 World Series, as well as a first Series win and trophy for the Rangers franchise.
...but no! They let it all slip away. Yes, yes, yes... and yes. I know I keep repeating it over and over but can you believe it? Also, yes I am a big fan of the Rangers, and if you read my blog you will know that, so I won't get into that part any more.
Well, it is all history now, and at least I do have to give credit to those St. Louis Cardinals for a totally epic win; from what I see, all they saw was a weak link and they went straight for it, and it paid off with a World Series (AGAIN for the 11th time; like they needed it, haha).
So, hey, who noticed what I said in that last blog for game 6? I said if the Rangers had a chance to win, they would walk that ever-popular St. Louis Cardinals player Albert Pujols. Well, that manager must have heard me or just thinks like a coach should think, and like I said, from a coach's perspective, the Texas Rangers manager did just that. Walked him three times that night in game 6 alone.
Yes they still lost, but, hey, it was a close one. Well, that is why I like, or I should say I love, baseball. "It can throw you for a curve ball!"
To keep us until next time, I want to sing a song for you guys... here we go... baseball, baseball, I wanna play baseball, baseball, baseball, I wanna play baseball, baseball, baseball, I wanna play baseball, baseball, baseball... I use to sing that song to my son when he was just a little boy, and he loved it. I would sing that to him every night before bedtime. So, with that, I leave you fellow fans, until next time!
