After a complete review of MLB Rule 7 and the obstruction definition under Rule 2, some interesting things have come to light. Also, further review of the play also adds an interesting dimension.
The Red Sox tied it up in another wild one. Here are five things you missed from game 4.
Allen Craig’s wild trip over Boston third baseman Will Middlebrooks likely made for the most crazy, chaotic October finish of all-time.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, neither Saltalamacchia — nor anyone else tagged Allen Craig after he missed home.
Game 3 was highlighted by a contentious obstruction call. Umpire Jim Joyce had no doubts over the call.
The Cardinals won game 3 on a controversial call. Here are five things you missed.
In Game 2 of the 2013 World Series, the Red Sox took a page out of the Cardinals’ defensive Game 1 nightmare and allowed the Cardinals to get out of Boston with a split.
It seems that the World Series has shrunk and shriveled over the years to the point where it is a folksy little event to all except those associated with the two teams participating.
Allen Craig hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals found a bit of missing pop, beating the New York Mets 5-4 Monday and stopping their season-worst losing streak at five.
The absurdity of Game 5 of the World Series will probably dwarf “Errorgate” of Game 2 of the World Series if the Cardinals, now down 3-2 to Texas in the 2011 World Series, do not come back to win it all. Let’s take a look at the issues.
Albert Pujols joined elite World Series company by hitting three home runs in a World Series game. Pujols equaled Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson in the Cardinals’ 16-7 Game 3 victory over the Rangers.
Josh Hamilton and the Texas hitters looked lost. They chased pitches that bounced, broke their bats and seemed totally overmatched. Until the ninth inning, that is.
