The other night, James Howard “Jim” Thome was called upon in a pinch to aid his team the Philadelphia Phillies versus the Tampa Bay Rays in the bottom of the ninth in a tie with the game on the line. In hitting a slam over the wall Thome, won the game for the Phillies and entered immortality by belting his 13th walk off homerun. He now has outdistanced the following;
Jimmie Fox (12)
Mickey Mantle (12)
Stan Musial (12)
Frank Robinson (12)
Babe Ruth (12)
Another notch in the 21-year long career for the 41-year Thome how as a 5x MLB All-Star became the 8th player to obtain 600 homeruns in a career!!!!
O.k. friends the table has been set, you seen the Top Performers you know of the pitching masterpieces put 2gether by Doc, noSeeds and daGeneral! You know of the hotly contested NL series between the Giants and the Braves! Followers of the Ruckus you saw how the Rangers finished off the heavy favorite D’Rays who brow beat the defending Yanks to wild card status only to see the defending WS champs awaken in time to sweep the intimidated looking Twins!!!
All leading up to these tantalizing match ups :
***Defending Champs chance to flex muscle vs. the wide-eyed Rangers!!!!
***Series can only get better after probrable game #1 match-up Tim ‘noSeeds’ Linecum vs. Roy ‘doc’ Halladay!!!
Yesssss…prepare friends and followers of the ruckus, RSDz MLB correspondents and pundits alike well have plenty to say about this weeks final four pennant chasers in route to the WS Championship..let the run for MLB supremacy continue!!!!
Recently another event occurred where the lines between fan and player were blurred and serious consequences resulted. At a Major League Baseball (MLB) last Monday a Phillies fan against better judgment and advice went on to the field to show his fanatical fan-ship for his following of the MLB team.
Friendz we’ve seen this before, displays of fanatical fan intrusion following of various sports; everything from Morgana to the Fan Man have bestowed upon the masses during these sporting events their quest for the proverbial “5 minutes of fame”… or even for the sake of wanting to be apart of the event! But the bottom line is this, what’s at stake is the athletes safety vs. the fan enthusiastic involvement……just makes you think, hmmmmmm!!!
