Cardinals Resurgence as Rangers Fall

There was seventh best game in recent years, and countless more flush with the World Series of fame, but never quite like this. In the category of raw emotion, broken again and again without mercy, which is among the best.

This is the most important triumph in the career of Tony La Russa – following his shameful episode. Game 6, so clearly in the rise time of the greatest story of the Texas Rangers, has become its worst, in a note. Nelson Cruz, the man whose power output so elegantly Rangers mission, ended up costing the title. It is perhaps appropriate that Game 7 was a fairly common issue. Just strange place unlikely any case, can not resist.

From Friday night, the game opened, I could not help but remember the Giants’ plight in 2002, and that the “Game 6″ is the province of so much anguish over the years. I remember some of the teams taking 3-2 series lead, as the Rangers did this week. 1985 St. Louis Cardinals were simply robbed Game 6, stopped by referee Don Denkinger call bad, and never recovered against Kansas City in 1986-series saw the Mets in cash from huge gaffe Bill Buckner and the Red Sox, loose d ‘Giants Winter -.. I know, this happens – took a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the seventh in Anaheim, just look at the ‘02 series slip away so horribly.

I liked the reaction of Ron Washington, manager of Texas in the wake of his own game when his six Rangers were one strike away – twice – to win it all. He called his team together for the first time since June, proclaimed: “I’m still just not my shoes.” It was all a man can do, but Giants Jeff Kent and Barry Bonds, the Rangers made. It no going back from a defeat that goes beyond Heartbreak, no resurrection of the dead.

It ‘a big reason why those in Cincinnati “Big Red Machine” teams will be ranked with the best ever, and in 1975 they did a miracle. It comes with the likes of Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, George Foster and Dave Concepcion, survived the terrible loss of Game 6 – Boston leading 6-3 in the eighth, only to have Homer Carlton Fisk in 12 ° – To win Game 7 on the same field, Fenway Park. This is a standard that can never be matched.

Once again, the best of the World Series is that there is always room for less light, the man named Richardson, Doyle, tenacious, Ross. Third baseman David Freese, virtually unknown outside of St. Louis in spring training, he came through like a Clemente today, Robert. Craig Allen, not well known outside of Berkeley (where he played at Cal 2003-06), hit the series-clinching home run Friday night, and distrust of the Cardinals bullpen long – the butt of every joke in the circles of baseball after a miscommunication confused La Russa in Game 5 – was perceived as Elysées.

In the heart of Game 6, Cruz was a man tied to bonds and Carlos Beltran of the houses with Feathers (8) – a hero outright to his teammates. Bottom of the ninth championship came his way. It ‘was shot by Freese bat deep, hitting a little’ strong, but Cruz was there. Take it, leave champagne. He later admitted to not playing deep enough, but, as Washington said, without remorse, “It should have been caught, for sure. He left, slowed down, he thought. If he goes back there, as he liked, it’s easy out” .

Imagine going to the title of your glove and take it away. Incomprehensible. Better to remember the correct La Russa, implacable Lance Berkman, Gutty Chris Carpenter, and all others responsible for the championship, which rose from the ashes – “stuff legends”, said Berkman. So amazing – and so depressing.
