Who watched the game last night? What do you think of the 2011 World Series so far?
I think the Rangers needed to win that game last night, especially since they had the advantage in starting pitching; but also because they needed to firmly take the momentum from the Cardinals and take home field advantage.
Obviously the Rangers need to win tonight or the series is over, also to add some reason to watch. This hasn't been the best-played series, has it? Huge defensive lapses, substandard pitching and slugfests belong in slow pitch, beer league softball, not in the World Series.
It is nice to see one of the greatest players of all time, Albert Pujols, do something on the big stage (3 HRs in one game) that'd only been done previously by Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson; but it's also unfortunate that the other big star in this series, Josh Hamilton, is playing at not much more than 50%.
Zebster's two cents worth.
