US Presswire photo Busch Stadium hosts Game 1 of the Fall Classic tonight. This World Series matchup — Texas vs. St. Louis — is being billed as a huge surprise, but maybe it's not as big a shocker as we want to believe. After all, the Rangers were the defending American League champs. And though…

The Nationals announced today they've returned Rule 5 draftee Elvin Ramirez to the Mets, sending the right-hander back to New York after he missed the entire season with a shoulder injury. Ramirez, a hard-throwing reliever whose fastball reached triple digits when healthy, was plucked away from the Mets last December. The Nationals hoped he would…

Chase Hughes tackled a bunch of topics this afternoon during our first offseason installment of Beltway Baseball Live.

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.

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.

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.…
