    US Presswire photo David Freese provided a World Series moment for the ages last night. This, this right here, is what makes baseball the greatest game ever invented. No other sport could produce what we witnessed last night in St. Louis. The anticipation. The tension. The elation. The anguish. The back-and-forth swings of emotion that…

  4. Video: Harper’s AFL walk-off

    Oct 28, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    And you thought David Freese hit the only walk-off home run in America on Thursday. Au contraire. Perhaps you've heard of this young lad named Bryce Harper.

  5. World Series Game 6: Rangers at Cardinals

    Oct 27, 2011, 11:27 PM EST

    US Presswire photo Ron Washington and Tony La Russa go head-to-head again tonight. We've had nearly 72 hours to analyze the great bullpen phone fiasco of 2011 and whether it has destroyed Tony La Russa's reputation forever. (My personal opinion: No, it hasn't.) Now, though, it's finally time for baseball again. And if Game 6…

  9. Tuesday morning thoughts

    Oct 25, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    US Presswire photo C.J. Wilson was erratic but effective last night for the Rangers.
