Now in it’s second year of one game wild card mayhem, MLB has officially jumped the shark when it comes to their postseason programming and this is one show that needs to be cancelled.
Magglio Ordonez will miss the rest of the postseason because of an ankle injury, the second Detroit Tigers outfielder out of the AL championship series.
Tigers ace Justin Verlander will start the ALCS opener at Texas on Saturday night against the Rangers’ C.J. Wilson.
Adrian Beltre most likely wouldn’t be with the Texas Rangers had Cliff Lee agreed to a big contract and stayed last winter.
Mike Napoli had a tying two-run single before Tampa Bay starter James Shields threw two wild pitches to the same batter, and the Texas Rangers went on to an 8-6 victory over the Rays in Game 2 of the AL division series Saturday night.
The Texas Rangers had to win their last six games to earn home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Hideki Matsui hit a two-run homer and Peter Bourjos added a solo shot, as the Angels beat the AL West champion Texas Rangers, 6-2, in the regular-season finale for both teams.
