The Texas Rangers catcher is on the verge of Daniel Boone and Nolan Ryan status in the Lone Star state
ARLINGTON, Texas — If legends are truly born in October, then the name of Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli could be added to Lone Star State lore right alongside Daniel Boone, Sam Houston and Nolan Ryan.
The Rangers made the most of scoring opportunities while the same cannot be said about the Cardinals

My favorite baseball colloquialism to call out to a teammate at the plate is “Right man, right spot.” It is the ultimate pick-me-up; it says, you are the man for the job and the time to do that job is now.
Going into the potential last game of the World Series, the Texas Rangers have taken this motto to heart in every one of their wins in this big showdown.
The 2011 World Series is evolving into one of the classic matchups in history. We’ve seen a 1-0 game through eight innings won in the ninth with two sac flies. We’ve seen a monumental blowout with Albert Pujols making history with three home runs. We’ve witnessed a young pitcher coming of age with a gem in Game 4 as Derek Holland shut down the Cardinals for 8+ innings. Baseball fans must be thrilled with this fall display.
Well, most fans. But there are some fans who are not enjoying the 2011 postseason.
