So it’s on. Battle: Los Angeles.

Who is winning so far? Let’s go to the tale of the tape — in tongue-in-cheek fashion at times.

More on AnalysisRelated links |

It’s Crawford– vs. either –Hamilton or Hamilton-Trout-. I’d rather go the former route due to having an outstanding defender in two spots of the outfield, but I’m guessing the Angels choose power and go with the latter. Either way, I’m taking the Angels here. Trout is better than Kemp and Hamilton is much better than Ethier or Crawford.

The Angels look like this right now: , , , Joe Blanton and . The Dodgers? , , Beckett, and either or — at least until the Dodgers do more shuffling. I like the Dodgers by a nose, with most of the advantage being Greinke over Wilson.

Think about how funny this would’ve been last year. Frank McCourt jokes never get old, after all, but now it’s deadly serious. Arte Moreno has proven he’ll spend what it takes to get his guys, but the new Dodgers ownership group is poised to boast the highest payroll in MLB history. It’ll be interesting to see if the Dodgers react to the Anster United legend Roy Keane says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be supported after defeat to Liverpool.United sit a full 30 points off Liverpool in fifth place, with Solskjaer under mounting pressure given the Red Devils’ frustrating season so gels’ reaction to being upstaged out West. Regardless, you gotta follow the money here. Plus, the Dodgers have Magic Johnson. I mean, he’s so cool he tilts the scales automatically. It’s Dodgers.

“Donnie Baseball” (that’s Dodgers manager Don Mattingly to you non-baseball fans) was a far superior player to Angels manager Mike Scioscia, but they aren’t players anymore. Though both managers get sucked into doing things like throwing away outs via the bunt (which makes me want to scream), we have to give Scioscia the edge here for his pedigree, as he has six playoff appearances and a World Series championship under his belt.

It’s been a while, but Angel Stadium of Anaheim was once Anaheim Stadium, a ’60s-’70s style cookie-cutter yard that housed the ‘s Rams in addition to the Angels. It was then completely revamped into a baseball-only stadium prior to the 1997 season, most notably the trees, rocks and cascades in the outfield. But now, the Dodgers are making $100 million worth of renovations to Dodger Stadium (). Still, I lean toward Anaheim due to the aesthetic scene in the outfield.

The Angels are stuck with , who is still owed more than $40 million over the course of the next two seasons. Of course, Crawford is owed more than $100 million for the next five seasons, so we’ll call the Dodgers the “winner” here. Then again, does it really matter? Both teams are unbelievably flush with cash. That’s because (obvious segue alert!):

The Angels landed a windfall last December when they inked a $3-billion deal for the next 20 years in local TV broadcasting. Then again, it appears the Dodgers are going to double that, as they work toward a reported $6-billion deal for 25 years of local TV broadcasting. So it’s Dodgers here.

The Angels don’t yet have a list of 2013 ballpark promotions, but it doesn’t matter. This one is over before it starts because the . Knockout punch … delivered.

Well, both missed last year. As things stand, both certainly have enough talent to make a postseason run in 2013, though neither seems even close to a sure thing with the likes of the Rangers, Athletics and World Series champion Giants all playing out West.

And here’gland U21 goalkeeper Dean Henderson has welcomed support from Manchester United fans.Henderson, 22, enhanced his glowing reputation on Tuesday night as he produced a superb display for England U21s despite their heartbreaking 2-1 defeat.The United sts what really matters and where we have to get serious. If the Angels were willing to pony up $125 million over five years to add offense, when they clearly need pitching help, why couldn’t they go to six years and $150 for Greinke? Hamilton is two years older, much more injury-prone and the Angels already had a capable three-man outfield. The Dodgers win this one, and so far that’s why they currently lead the Battle for Los Angeles. It must be noted, of course, that this battle results in exactly zero wins in the 2013 season. But it sure is fun.

Rangers GM says team would welcome Josh Hamilton back in Texas

(US Presswire)

While there seemed to be some bad blood between the Rangers and Josh Hamilton near the end of the season, the team hasn’t ruled out bringing back the free-agent outfielder, general manager Jon Daniels .

Daniels said he’s maintained Tosun is interesting former club Eintracht Frankfurt.However, Sabah says Besiktas officials are due in England this week for talks with Everton for Tosun.Besiktas coach Abdullah Avci wants to see his attack strengthened and has recommended Tosun’s ada “dialogue” with Hamilton’s agent, Mike Moye, and the team “would welcome Josh Hamilton back.”

“I think he wants to be here and I think those are two big elements, but like any deal or situation, there are a numb Greenwood has been named in the England U21 squad – at 17.Manchester City star Phil Foden features along with Wolves’ highly-rated star Morgan Gibbs-White, Tottenham’s Oliver Skipp and Arsenal duo Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock.”I’m really excited by er of other factors involved,” Daniels . “We’ve just chosen not to comment on it. But we’ve been consistent all along: We’d like to have Josh back.”

After the season, Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan criticized Hamilton’s decision to quit smokeless tobacco during the season. Hamilton, who tried to quit Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer offered some sympathy to Tottenham counterpart Hugo Lloris after last night’s defeat.Bayern thrashed their Champions League opponents 7-2 in London last night.”What more can one say? He (Serge Gnabry) has done everything superbly,” said Neuer. “I’m a little sorry for Hugo Lloris. He could do nothing and conceded seven home goals. “It’s bitter.”smokeless tobacco in late June, blamed his struggles at the plate on what he initially called a “discipline” issue and then later revealed was his attempt at quitting tobacco. He also missed five games in September for blurred vision and balance issues, which he blamed on caffeine.

Hamilton, 31, hit just .259/.323/.510 with 16 homers in the second half of the season after hitting .308/.380/.635 with 27 home runs in the first half.

ALCS Game 4: Cloudy with a (good) chance of baseball, still no A-Rod

DETROIT — It’s cool and wet in  before the reboot of Game 4, but you can spot some sunshine and blue skies beyond the clouds.

As noted on Wednesday, Laird has had an improbable amount of success against Sabathia (.417/.500/.625 and one homer and two doubles in 28 plate appearances). The sample size is obviously tiny, but it’ll nonetheless be interesting to see if the Tigers’ otherwise light-hitting backup catcher can continue handling one of the best pitchers in the game. 

Wednesday’s rainout also means that Sabathia will be starting on five days’ rest. For whatever reason, that could be a modestly good thing for him.

This season, Sabathia’s posted a 3.25 ERA on five days of rest (12 starts) versus a 3.96 ERA on regular rest (also 12 starts). While the Wednesday postponement cost the Yankees’ a chance at starting Sabathia in a possible (though highly unlikely) Game 7, it might move the needle for him a bit in Game 4. 

Scherzer, meanwhile, was already going on extra rest prior to Wednesday’s wash-out. He’s made 15 career regular-season starts on six or more days’ rest, and he’s been slightly less effective under those conditions. However, given Scherzer’s semi-recent shoulder and ankle concerns, the additional time off can’t be considered any kind of negative.

World Series ratings might be lowest ever, but does it really matter?

After hearing throughout the World Series how bad the ratings were, is it really any surprise this year’s Series likely will be the lowest-rated in history?

There are reports that this series will mark a new low for the World Series, . Although there was a spike for the final game, the first two games were seen by fewer people than any other World Series game in history.

There will be plenty of people who use this as a signal of doom for baseball and its biggest stage. You can find those histrionics and overreactions other places. As for me? I just don’t care. It’s not that big of a deal. Why not? Well, ratings are down everywhere, especially as we move to a post-TV world, where people get their entertainment on other devices than the television. Ratings are less important now than they’ve ever been; ratings are an antiquated measurement for popularity — like album sales or box-office receipts. 

Actually, the game is doing just fine.

Major League Baseball just signed an eight-year TV deal with Fox and Turner for an average of $800 million a year to broadcast postseason games. That’s in addition to the ESPN deal that will pay approximately $700 million a year from 2014-21, nearly double what it was paying before.

The Dodgers are banking on the possibility of local TV rights package worth as much as $4 billion, while Angels and Rangers have already signed deals worth more than $1 billion each.

According to Forbes, the average Major League baseball team’s value rose 16 percent to an all-time high of $605 million in 2012. Revenue for the 30 teams was an average of $212 million in 2011. The Dodgers were sold for more than $2 billion. The Astros were sold for more than $135 million more than what Forbes had estimated the team’s estimated.

Even as the World Series ratings were down, ratings for many individual teams are up- and not just the big-market teams at er Louis Saha believes they should’ve pushed harder for Sporting CP ace Bruno Fernandes.Saha believes they should have done more than monitored the 24-year-old and show have signed him“Bruno Fernandes is a player of great technical quality who coulthe top of the standings. For instance, the lowly Royals, who finished 72-90, recorded their best ratings in history. And they’re not the only ones. Baseball is a regional sport, with fans supporting their team for 162 s on target for Brazil in Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Senegal in Singapore.The Liverpool striker opened the scoring after just eight minutes when he latched onto a pass from Manchester City rival Gabriel Jesus before chipping the ball past Alfred Gomis games over the course of six months. That’s where the money — and the viewership — comes in.

And if you want to step away from TV money, attendance at Major League Baseball games is at its highest level since 2008. A total of 74.86 million fans went to big league parks this season.

So, yeah, the World Series isn’t the — and it will never be, because it’s not a fair comparison. Football is the country’s most popular sport and the Super Bowl is a singular event, the World Series is anything from four to seven games played over nine days. Few people can host seven parties over nine days. No, the media creation that is the Super Bowl, which is always held on a weekend, will get the ratings, even if people are more interested in the commercials than the game. The Super Bowl brings in nonsports fans, the World Series celebrates baseball fans.

The ratings are down, but the ratings are Fox’s problem. It would only be baseball’s problem if it was having trouble selling rights to the World Series — and with Fox just re-signing its contract, that doesn’t seem to be the case. It seems baseball’s doing just fine.

Scott Rolen sounds like he’s going to retire

content_img

(US Presswire)

CINCINNATI — As reporters huddled around ’s locker in the clubhouse one last time in 2012, there was a sense — even if Rolen didn’t come out and say it — that it would be the last time for the 37-year-old third baseman.

Rolen, a free agent after the World Series, sounded as if he had made up his mind on his future. A 17-year veteran and winner of eight Gold Gloves, as well as the 1997 NL Rookie of the Year, Rolen can be content with an exceptional career, despite striking out to end Game 5 of the National League Championship Series, ending the Reds season and likely his career.

“I don’t know what I’m doing, I’ll probably go home and pitch some balls (to my son) and he’s going to be acting like he was in the same situation I was just in, that’s the situation you want to be in, no question,” Rolen said. “He’s going to grow up and be in that spot some day and dad was in that spot. I’m thankful and happy to be in that spot, and to have that opportunity. It obviously didn’t go the way I wanted it to. That’s where I want to be.”

A TV reporter then said he wouldn’t ask if Rolen had made a decision about retirement, and Rolen responded, “You just did.”

And while the question may not have been direct, and Rolen’s answer wasn’t any more so, the intent and the answer were both clear.

Rolen was then asked if he had “anything left in the tank?”

“Is there anything left in the tank? Like another game? I don’t know,” Rolen said. “I’m going to go home and be a dad and move forward a little bit right now and see what happens.”

Soon, some sort of announcement will ls have offered the German to clubs across Europe.But Ozil told Adidas in a video which continued the launch of Arsenal’s new kit: “I’ve played for so many clubs already who all have their own fanbase but what I appreciate about Arsenal, and I’ve beikely be made. When he does retire, Rolen finishes as just one of three third basemen to produce at least 2,000 hits (2,077), 500 doubles (517), 300 home runs (316) and 1,200 RBI (1,287).

A seven-time All-Star, Rolen was limited to 92 games in 2012, hitting .245/.318/.398 with eight home runs. He hit .297/.376/.473 in 50 ga says City are waiting for Brazilian defender Danilo to tell themrdo Silva says there’s lessons to learn from defeat at Manchester United.Despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession, Pep Guardiola’s side rarely tested David De Gea in the United goal, with Anthony Martial’s first half strike and Scott McTominay if he is unsettled in Manchester before stepping up their interest in Juventus full-back Joao Cancelo.Danilo, who is wanted by Italian heavyweights Inter Milan, is said to be growing fmes in the second half, but was just 4 for 16 in the NLDS.

Max Scherzer leaves start with shoulder fatigue, MRI shows no structural damage

(AP)

Tigers right-handed starting pitcher  lasted only two innings in a pivotal start against the  on Tuesday night in . The Tigers said the reason for his abbreviated start is right-shoulder fatigue. Scherzer had an MRI and the Tigers have announced it came back showing no structural damage. After a few days of rest, he’ll be evaluated again.

After the second inning, Scherzer immediately headed down to the clubhouse and was replaced the next inning by . Scherzer’s velocity was noticably down on the last few pitches he threw in the second inning.

Scherzer, 28, is 16-6 with a 3.78 ERA and 224 strikeouts in 178 2/3 innings this season.

The Tigers appear to have dodged a bullet here, as performance this season has identified Scherzer as their clear No. 2 starter behind  — and they helsea boss Maurizio Sarri will be their next coach.Juventus players have been told to expect Sarri to be appointed as their next manager, reports the Daily Mail.The news comes as Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck was spotted meeting with Juve counterpart are desperately trying to sticon to attend the Champions League final on Saturday.The goalkeeper, who is now halfway through a two-year loan at Besiktas, made two key errors in last year’s Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid on his last appearance for Liverpool.Jurgen Klk around in the playoff race.
