The Royals defeated the New York Mets in five games to win their first World Series since 1985 and in […]

Upstart vs. Dynasty

Tonight the World Series opens up in Kansas City’s Kaufmann Stadium with the San Francisco Giants making an attempt for their third championship in the last five years.

A 5-Tool Player whom the NL Central calls their own

Giants’ Sweep Marks Broader NL Dominance

The World Series ended last night.  Honest.  Sadly, the number of people who watched the clinching game – other than fans of the two participants – was probably less than watched K-State pummel Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon.  If you are one of those types who waits until the 6th of 7th game to get into the excitement of the World Series then you […]

Broke a 62 Yard run for the Irish's first score. The Irish running game accounted for 217 yards of offense and three scores which is exactly what the doctor ordered on the road.

San Francisco Giants and Notre Dame Roll On.

This time it was Ryan Voglesong’s turn in the rotation. He didn’t miss a beat as he produced his own masterpiece going 5-2/3 innings.  It was precisely the kind of economical  pitching that Bruce Bochy wanted and needed. Voglesong was quoted in his pre-game press conference as saying, “If you’re concerned with the cold then you’re not focusing on what you’re doing.” He […]
