By Steve Henson
November 1, 2010


Arlington, TX – A sophisticated city by a magnificent bay parched for a baseball championship can pop corks and douse itself in bubbly.

Arlington, TX — A couple of Giants coaches rolled balls down the chalk lines, checking if the dirt tilted fair or foul. A few San Francisco hitters squinted into the sun glinting off glass windows in left field, seeing how it might affect them in the batter’s box.

Giants pound Lee, Rangers 11-7 in World Series opener

By Joe Lemire
October 27, 2010

Postgame:

The early lessons of World Series Game 1's unexpected slugfest:

• Cliff Lee is a postseason mortal. For the first time in his nine career playoff starts, his team lost. He was hit hard, too, to the tune of seven runs (six earned) in 4 2/3 innings.

• Apparently the Giants don't need four games to score 11 runs. San Francisco's 11 runs matched its total scoring from the four games of the National League Division Series.

10 questions heading into the 2010 World Series

By Tom Verducci
October 27, 2010


San Francisco, CA — Don't judge this World Series by the television ratings. The last time a World Series Game 1 pulled a double-digit rating without the Yankees or Red Sox was way back in 1997, a virtual stone age compared to the media world of the new century. The Giants and Rangers will not start with a big audience, but if they play the kind of baseball they did in the first two rounds for six or seven games, they will grow one.

Either Giants or Rangers will end in futility

By Jeff Passan
October 25, 2010


Because the Chicago Cubs monopolize baseball’s sad sackery, it’s easy to forget the collective futility of the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers. Coming into this season, the Giants had suffered through 52 non-championship years in San Francisco. The Rangers, including their time in Washington, D.C., went 49 years without so much as a postseason series win. Add ‘em up and they equaled the Cubs’ 101 years of yearning.

Arlington, TX — As the Texas Rangers convened behind closed clubhouse doors July 9, manager Ron Washington announced to his players the move that forever changed the franchise.

"We have traded," Washington said, "for Cliff Lee."

"I grabbed my cell," starting pitcher C.J. Wilson recalls, "and sent a message to my friends. 'We are going to the World Series.' "

Yankees christen new stadium with a title

By Gordon Edes
November 4, 2009


NEW YORK — The ghosts may have been abandoned across the street, where the House that Ruth Built is awaiting the imminent arrival of the wrecker’s ball. But from old to new, the New York Yankees left no doubt in the House that George Built that their championship tradition runs as straight and true as a pinstripe.

The Yankees won their 27th World Series title and first in the new Yankee Stadium by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 7-3 Wednesday night to take the 105th World Series in six games.

Rodriguez, Yankees beat Phillies for 3-1 Series edge

By BEN WALKER
November 1, 2009


PHILADELPHIA — Alex Rodriguez waited all game long for this hit. Heck, he waited his whole life.

Rodriguez delivered the biggest hit of his career, a go-ahead, two-out double in the ninth inning off Brad Lidge and the New York Yankees took advantage of Johnny Damon’s daring dash to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Sunday night for a 3-1 lead in the World Series.

Lee offered to pitch on short rest

By Tim Brown
November 1, 2009

PHILADELPHIA — Cliff Lee confesses he is a product of a regular, unbending routine. He also says he volunteered to come out of it to pitch on short rest for the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday night in Game 4 of the World Series. He obviously wasn’t convincing enough for manager Charlie Manuel.

While Yankees starting pitchers lined up to pitch on short rest, Lee was kept to his regular schedule, because, Manuel said, “You’re asking Cliff Lee to do something that he has never [done] before. But we’re also asking him to do it in a very big, important place, and that’s in the World Series.”

Howard’s slump puts Phillies in trouble

By Jeff Passan
November 1, 2009


PHILADELPHIA — Their eyes play tricks on them in different ways. When Ryan Howard falls into one of his 20,000-leagues-deep funks, his eyes don’t track the baseball. Even if it’s in the strike zone, he can’t connect. Alex Rodriguez, on the other hand, loses the strike zone altogether, swings in every which direction and prays that wood and cowhide get together on a blind date.

Each sight has been remarkable in a World Series that began with them as baseball’s hottest players and now, three games in, sees each soul searching at the most important time of the year.

A-Rod delivers the hit of a lifetime

By Gordon Edes
Novenber 1, 2009


PHILADELPHIA — Maybe it’s passé to cast him in mythic terms, if it’s true, as one magazine reported a few days ago, that Alex Rodriguez owns paintings portraying him as a centaur. But let there be no doubt as to the identity of the horse the New York Yankees are riding in their bid to win their first World Series title since 2000.

With his ninth-inning, tie-breaking double following a true World Series rarity – two stolen bases on the same play by Johnny Damon – Rodriguez is within one more Yankee victory of placing himself in the company of those he most envies, the pinstripers who can call themselves champions.
