US Presswire file photo Bryce Harper is 3-for-27 in seven games with the Scottsdale Scorpions. As the postseason reaches its final leg — the 107th World Series begins Wednesday in St. Louis with an unlikely Rangers-Cardinals matchup — baseball's various offseason leagues are just starting to heat up. In Arizona and across the Caribbean, more…

US Presswire photo The Cardinals have a chance to clinch the NL pennant tonight. One half of the Fall Classic has been set: The Texas Rangers are back for the second straight season after pounding the Detroit Tigers into submission last night. Tonight, the St. Louis Cardinals try to do the same to the Milwaukee…

US Presswire photo Derek Holland tries to pitch the Rangers to their second straight AL pennant. The Tigers managed to stave off elimination Thursday thanks to a 133-pitch effort from Justin Verlander, two clutch homers from an injured Delmon Young and a five-out save from lefty specialist Phil Coke. Can they do it again tonight…

US Presswire photo Prince Fielder and the Brewers hope to take a 3-2 series lead tonight. With a little resiliency (and a surprisingly effective pitching performance by Randy Wolf) the Brewers tied up the National League Championship Series last night, ensuring both teams will go back to Milwaukee this weekend for at least a Game…

US Presswire photo The Nationals didn't cross the plate nearly enough times this season. This season saw the Nationals win 80 games, a mark that left everyone happy and was reason to proclaim 2011 a success for this franchise. But how did they get to those 80 wins? How did they lose 81? And how…

US Presswire photo The Brewers probably fear Albert Pujols more than the squirrel. Man, what a postseason it's been so far. That game in Detroit that just ended was a true classic, with Justin Verlander throwing so many pitches, the only man on the planet unimpressed was Livan Hernandez. Now, for the nightcap in St.…

US Presswire photo Justin Verlander starts today with the Tigers' season hanging in the balance. The Texas Rangers have three shots to wrap up their second consecutive American League pennant, and if they pull that off, what an accomplishment for a franchise that had never previously made any noise in the postseason. The only AL…

US Presswire photo Mike Rizzo has made plenty of roster alterations since taking over as GM in 2009. Underneath all the hoopla surrounding Theo Epstein's move from the front office at Fenway Park to the front office at Wrigley Field lies one important caveat: No general manager can step into a new situation and completely…

US Presswire photo Albert Pujols was a man among boys in Game 2. This has become a postseason known for some pretty darn dramatic baseball. Unfortunately, it's also become a postseason known for some pretty annoying rain delays. First pitch for Game 4 of the ALCS in Detroit today was delayed more than two hours,…
