Inching towards mediocrity.


The Great 2009 Wrap-Up Concluded! (Now with 100% more of the rest of 2009!)

Time to put an end to all this 2009 remembrance, nostalgia madness.

Silver Sluggers. (Now with 88% less Robinson Cano!)

Aaron Hill and Adam Lind

Well.

Quick baseball related interlude here, and then we’ll return you to your regularly scheduled “24-centric” programming.

The MLB handed out their annual Golden Glove and Silver Slugger awards, and while the Blue Jays were shut out in defense, they made a big impact in offense.

Only three teams in the entire MLB had multiple recipients of Silver Slugger awards – The New York Yankees (World Series Champions), the LA Dodgers (National League West Champions) and the Toronto Blue Jays (American League East Fourth Place Champions.)

Aaron Hill, our All-Star second basemen, and Adam Lind our All-Star-in-our-hearts designated hitter, each brought home the award.

Congratulations, boys, and hopefully these two will remain the faces of the franchise for a long time – something we’ll definitely need after we inevitably trade Halladay.

Edit:

Huh. It seems that this just happens to be my 32nd blog post.

Roy Halladay’s number.

GUESS HE’S STAYING AFTER ALL, FOLKS.

Please don’t quote me on that.

american league championship series

Well.

The Angels are officially out. The Yankees are officially in.

The 2009 World Series will be between the New York Yankees and the reigning Philadelphia Phillies.

I probably will not be watching.

Sigh.



Escape from New York. (Now with slightly less of a chance of the Angels not making it to the World Series!)

american league championship seriesWell.

It seems that reports of the Angel’s loss were greatly exaggerated.

My god, what a game THAT was!

The Angels managed to battle their way back from the brink at the last moment, toppling the Yankees 7-6 last night in Los Angeles. It was an epic battle, with the Angels leading for most of the game until the sixth inning – when ace John Lackey loaded the bases, and then the Yankees hammered the bullpen for six runs, giving them a 6-4 lead.

Luckily, the Angels rallied in their half of the seventh inning, chasing away Yankee ace (and former Blue Jay) A.J. Burnett, to seal the game at 7-6.

Now it’s on to Game 6 in the Bronx…if the Yankees win this game, they’ll be heading to the World Series – and celebrating this accomplishment on their own turf.

If not, it’s on to a final showdown for the American League in Game 7. Even disregarding my hatred for the Yankees, I still hope it makes it that far. I want to see the Angels win, sure, but I’d REALLY like to see some exciting baseball.

Let’s go Angels!
