After having the pleasure of watching five relatively exciting World Series games, there are a few things that have stood out in my mind as noteworthy. The following is a list of some observations from this year's series thus far:
With his half-dozen mound visits per inning, Jorge Posada is the sole reason these World Series games take four hours to complete . It is my hope that Baseball Reference starts keeping track of this statistic next season, which will be called MVI (mound visits per inning).
Ryan Howard strikes out a lot . And when he does, he always mutters something under his breath in disbelief…even when it’s a swinging strike three.
Kate Hudson just might be the most famous baseball groupie since Alyssa Milano .
Among many other things, Joba Chamberlain needs to wash his hat .
It appears as though Chase Utley has starting using the John Stamos/Jesse Katsopolis line of hair products . Have mercy!
There is so much loose jersey hanging off CC Sabathia , that the spare materials could be used as a tarp to cover the entire country of Cambodia.
Cliff Lee is non-chalant about everything , so would he even get excited if the Phillies won the World Series?
There is no stopping Mariano Rivera. If this World Series goes to a Game Seven, Joe Girardi might be best served to let Mo pitch the entire game himself.
After seeing all the camera time that the Philly Phanatic has been getting , I realized the Yankees don’t even have an official team mascot. How sad is that?
