Braves Officially Eliminated

 The Atlanta Braves run of 14 straight postseasons is over. 14 years is a nice run. Many time I thought they would be done but kept fighting back. Im just happy that are done and I dont have to see them so any more damage to the Eastern Division Champions NY Mets.... Let hope the NL wins it this year ! Go Mets !

Liriano Is Done For Year

The Twins post season hopes took a bad turn yesterday when there ace rookie pitcher Fransisco Liriano left the game in the 3rd inning with elbow pain. Liriano was an up and coming star. He will not pitch again this year. The Twins still have Santana and Nathan but that probably wont be enough to overtake the Yankees. The Twins have a good pitching staff and should be contenders for the next few years. They still need to add a few power hitters but that is not as hard to find as the pitching. I love to see all the young up and coming pitchers do there thing. Seems like every team now has a 'young gun'.

Marlin's Rookie Throw a No - No

Florida Marlin's rookie Anibal Sanchez threw a no hitter tonight against the Diamondbacks. It was only his 13th major league start. It only took him 103 pitches to do it too. The Marlins have some good young pitchers and you can now add Sanchez to that list. He was mobbed by his teammates after the win and later Sanchez would say "This is the best moment of my life". Anibal Sanchez is only 22 years old.
