It’s not always the two best teams in the World Series but these two are the best teams in mid-October and that’s what matters.
Baseball is trying to be pure again. And when you consider the final four teams in the MLB postseason, they did a good job. The Giants, Cardinals, Orioles and Royals aren’t considered members of the monetary aristocracy, at least not at the level of the Yankees, Red Sox, and Dodgers.
The Giants beat the Cardinals to make the World Series. But baseball fans outside of San Francisco will be rooting for the Royals.
The team is set to return to Baltimore later this Thursday night.
The Royals reach their first World Series since 1985 with 8 straight American League playoff wins, beating the Athletics, Angels and Orioles.
Losing in the ALCS is never fun. But knowing that you’ll be back keeps the sky from falling.
The Royals lead the Orioles 2-0. The Cardinals and Giants are tied at one game. What’s the chance of each possible World Series matchup?
As the Orioles prepare to play in their first American League Champion Series since 1997, the brass of the franchise extended J.J. Hardy’s contract for an additional three seasons.
Riders of Maryland Area Regional Commuter trains are asking Gov. Martin O’Malley to extend service hours if the Orioles make it to the World Series.
There have been some real contenders & champions coming out of the smaller markets over the last few years as evidenced this year by The Orioles & Royals battling in this year’s ACLS. These teams have to draft better, make smarter under the radar free agent signings & develop talent better but as we have seen – it’s doable.
Either the Kansas City Royals or the Baltimore Orioles will be playing for a World Series.
It is pretty amazing what the Orioles did, sweeping 3 straight from the Tigers and beating 3 Cy Young winners.
