2008 Playoff Red Sox

Because they really needed some extra attention (and cause BSG just thinks they have by far the most interesting lineup of stances), here are the 2008 playoff Red Sox for your enjoyment. If you have issue with the selection, make your argument here for one of the other remaining lineups, we'd love to hear what people think.

It was a great weekend of interleague play in NYC, with the Mets taking the subway series 2-1.  BSG was recently in Manhattan doing classic stances from both clubs for The Baseball Show on SNY.tv.  Meet the Mets ran last week, so, for your Monday, here are the Bronx Bombers.  Enjoy!

2010 Rangers

The Rangers looked good in their first test against prominent division rivals, the Oakland A's, winning the series this week 2-1.  And as they head up to Toronto today to challenge the mighty Blue Jays, BSG takes a look at what makes this such a great stance team.  With the Angels on the decline, C.J. Wilson getting things done on the mound, and Hamilton, Kinsler, and Cruz at the plate, might this be the year the Rangers add a 2nd win to their postseason journal?  Or is it just the year you buy a book about batting stances?  Either way, it's the 2010 Rangers.

2010 Indians Preview

How many weeks into the season will calling these things previews start to sound ridiculous?  We gotta be getting close.  Man how bout that game 2 last night Cleveland?  You need an elbow repair STAT!  Here's hoping the good people of Cleveland still have several weeks left of pulling for the Cavs.  Oh, and not completely unrelated to that, here are the 2010 Indians.  Enjoy!

2010 Tigers Preview

BSG's worries that Magglio Ordonez stored his mojo in his jheri curl mullet were calmed yesterday as Mags got his 2,000th career hit in a win over the Twins.  Those two seemed to have picked back up right where they left off last year in the AL Central, which should mean another fun battle for all of us.  BSG likes the Detroit lineup, and, like the rest of the world, thinks the Damon addition will probably help.  But he still misses that jheri curl. Enjoy!

2010 Mariners Preview

Fun fact for the day: today in 1986 Roger Clemens struck out 20 Mariners.  The M's are lookin better in 2010 though, and after a pre-season cover appearance on ESPN The Magazine, they're the trendy pick in the AL West.  Maybe folks are just sick of the Angels taking it, who knows.  If you're not familiar with the new Seattle lineup, BSG doesn't miss a one.  Here are your 2010 Seattle Mariners.  Enjoy!

2010 Rays Preview

So we swear we recorded this before the Rays had the best record in baseball, but even if you don't believe us, they do, and we did, so lets get on it with it.  BSG likes him some Rays.  He likes that it would feel as natural to see Madden at a Coldplay concert as in the dugout at Tropicana.  He likes that they've got a roster brimming with young talent.  He likes that, in the toughest division in baseball, they've come outta the gates red hot.  Does that have anything to do with the fact that they gave him his own jersey?  You decide.  The 2010 Rays.

2010 Angels Preview

Fresh off his career 1000th hit, BSG takes a look at Hideki Matsui and the rest of the 2010 Angels.  Just how does Mike Scioscia keep this club at the top of the AL West and competing in the playoffs year after year?  BSG isn't sure, but he loves the lineup and the fact that the All-Star game will be in Anaheim this year.  Enjoy your 2010 Angels!

2010 Blue Jays Preview

As the Blue Jays look to Twitter to solve their attendance problem at SkyDome, BSG looks to Toronto's past to help get their fans in the mood for the 2010 season.  The AL East is a tough place to live, so why mess with analyzing current rosters when we can hop in the Wayback Machine and visit the magical year of 1998, and a lineup too good to be true.  Enjoy!

2010 White Sox Preview

If there's a better collection of stances in MLB this year, BSG can't find it.  In fact he dares you, nay, DOUBLE-DOG dares you to name a better group of batter's box antics than what they have going on in Chicago this season.  The 2010 White Sox are just loaded; Quentin, Beckham, Pierre, Konerko, Alexei, Teahen, Vizquel, the list goes on and on.  So here they are, your 2010 White Sox.  Enjoy!

2010 Twins Preview

The Minnesota Twins opened up Target Field with a bang yesterday, beating the Red Sox 5-2 and ushering in the open-air era.  The end of the Metrodome has BSG wondering though; are these still the loveable, blue-collar Twins of old?  One things for sure, with Mauer, Morneau, Nathan, and now Jim Thome, the Twins have the star-power, and perhaps the swagger, to make some noise in the AL this year.  Enjoy!

BSG breaks down the new Red Sox

While down in Tampa for RaysFest, BSG caught up with our friends from Boston, the good people at WEEI.  They asked for his take on the new sluggers they'll be seeing in Red Sox uniforms this year.  So here they all are, in all their pre-Fenway innocence, Bill Hall, Mike Cameron, Marco Scutaro, Jeremy Hermida and Adrian Beltre.  Enjoy!

BSG’s Who To Watch : AL West

Why the AL West now you may ask.  The Angels clinched days ago, Texas is done for the year, and all eyes are fixed firmly on the AL Central race.  Plus, didn't you guys already post the AL MVP Candidates?  The short answer here folks is that there's not really too much method to the madness.  But we also figured you might be looking for reasons to watch the last few games out west this season.  So catch these guys before the weekend's over.

Magglio Ordoñez’s 2006 ALCS-ending HR

We got a good one going in Detroit folks.  Yesterday the Twins and Tigers split the doubleheader to keep the Tigers 2 up.  Today they start the 2nd half of their 4-game series at Comerica.  The evening win for the Tigers yesterday was thanks in large part to a 2 run scoring double from a guy who's done it before for em.  Have a look at the shot Magglio Ordonez hit in the 2006 ALCS to sweep the A's and take the Tigers to their first World Series in over 20 years.

Justin Verlander’s No-Hitter

Tonight the Twins and Tigers kick-off a four game series in Detroit that will most likely decide the AL Central.  With neither team in wild card contention, the stakes are high.  The good people of motown gotta feel good about this one being a home series.  Tomorrow night, they'll feel even better if Justin Verlander has an outing like June 12th, 2007.  BSG is here to help your remember it.

BSG’s Who To Watch : AL MVP Candidates

Here they are folks, the big time players of the 2009 American League.  Some you've met and know well.  Some are new faces on the scene (Kendry Morales we're looking at you).  Some we'll be seeing in October, and others... well not so much (Sorry Ben Zobrist and the Rays, we filmed this a couple weeks ago).  But for now, in this moment, they're all right here in this week's Who To Watch.  Enjoy!

Jim Edmonds – The Catch

So we're not gonna lie, with BSG being based outta LA, a Dodgers/Angles World Series has a nice ring to it.  So to help things along, this week we'll be taking a look at some classic moments in both teams' histories.  Today, we're leading off with the Jim Edmonds 1997 marvel known simply to Angels fans as, "The Catch."  Niners fans, take no offense, we still love Dwight Clark too.  Enjoy!

BSG’s Who To Watch: AL Central

Even in San Francisco, at AT&T Park for an NL West matchup, doing a best of the AL Central video, everybody still wants Youkilis. Sorry folks, he's not in this one, but you will find, Alexei Ramirez, Brandon Inge, Asdrubal Cabrera, and the rest of the best stances in the AL Central. Enjoy!

Josh Hamilton’s 1st Career Walk-Off HR

If the Rangers catch the Red Sox in the AL wildcard race this year, you can bet this guy will play a major part. We're certainly pulling for him. So to get you Rangers fans in the right state-of-mind (cause we know Texans have confidence issues) here's a look back at Josh Hamilton's 1st ever MLB walk-off HR from July 10, 2008 against the division rival Angels.

BSG’s Who To Watch: AL East

The big bad AL East. This is where it all starts and ends folks. And while it may be all over but the crying for any non-Yankees to clinch a division title this year, we wanted you to know that BSG hasn't forgotten about these fellas. Scutaro, Aybar, and Markakis might not be names you'll hear this year after September, so don't miss your chance to see these stances in action now. As for Youkilis, we think he's been fairly covered at this point. Enjoy!
