The 107th World Series is currently in progress as the Texas Rangers have a 3-2 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals going into Game 6. Personally, I do not like the Rangers at all. I’m a Texan, love everything about my home state, but I do not like the Texas Rangers. On the other hand, I am a huge fan of Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols. He has been the best player in baseball over the last 5 years and I’d like to see him win his 2nd championship. Everything is on the line for the Cardinals on Thursday in Game 6; win or go home. The game was supposed to be played Wednesday but weather forced Major League Baseball to postpone the game.
The series has been one of the more exciting World Series in recent years. There have been low scoring pitchers duels and high scoring home run derbies such as in Game 3’s 16-7 Cardinals win. In the game, Pujols had 5 hits, including 3 homers. He became the 3rd player to hit 3 home runs in a World Series game, joining Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson. Many feel that Pujols cemented his spot in the Hall of Fame in Game 3.
The exhilarating moments are not over in the fall classic. Hopefully, the series will go 7 games and we’ll get to witness one of the most dramatic ends to the baseball season that we’ve ever seen.
