Runs in the Family

I'm used to seeing Corey Crawford make game saving plays but here's one from one of my favorite shortstops in the game, Brandon Crawford. This particular play, kept the game tied at 3 in the bottom of the ninth at PetCo Park in against the Padres.

Defying the Odds

The fall season long ended. Individual skill workouts and strength and conditioning workouts are also in the rear view. Needless to say with spring training still a month away for the Pumas (January 10th), there isn't much to report. But John Parker recently ranked the top prospects in the Texas Rangers organization for Appearing on the list was none other than the Lake Erie Lasher himself. Ryan Rua finished his college career at shortstop but has played just about every other position while climbing his way to Double-A with the Frisco RoughRiders.
"The 23-year-old spent the bulk of his time at second base with Hickory but shifted to third after a late-season promotion to Frisco. He was neck-and-neck with Gallo in the race for the Minor League home run crown for much of the season -- Rua actually led the chase with 29 at the end of July."
This clip is from one of his first games after being called up to Double-A where Ryan launches a walk-off grand slam in one of his first games played after getting the call up to the RoughRiders. I can't watch it enough...this ball was crushed! Best of luck to Ryan on his journey to Arlington!

Fist Pump Friday: Pennant Edition

The World Series is set for a rematch of the 2004 series that saw the Boston Red Sox end an 86-year drought in a 4-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals. It is clear that the best two teams in baseball face off on Wednesday night so there should be a lot of good reactions, after all, it is the Fall Classic. So with both the Sox and the Cards clinching their respective pennants this weekend, there were some great celebrations in the process. Here's a look at some of the best from both game 6's in a special edition of #FistPumpFriday.

The "we're starting a rally" fist pump

The "we're losing this game over my dead body" fist pump
