Mike Napoli has been a terrific addition to this Rangers club and has hit safely in eight of 10 postseason games and is hitting .316, while providing some quality defense behind the plate.
Widely regarded as the top defensive catcher in the game, Yadier Molina had his best offensive season this past year, hitting .305 with 14 home runs and 65 RBI.
He’s now playing his third position with the team and remains one of the classiest and most underrated players in the game.
Mitch Moreland will likely play first base when these games are played in Arlington.
THIRD BASE Aside from a three home run effort in the ALDS clincher Adrian Beltre has been quiet at the plate this postseason, going just 10-for-42 (.238) with six RBI.
He’s still one of the best defenders at his position in the game, though.
SECOND BASE Ian Kinsler had a terrific bounce back season after a disappointing 2010.
Skip Schumaker had been the Cards’ everyday second baseman, but suffered a strained oblique muscle in their Game 5 win over the Phillies and was left off the NLCS roster.Posted in 12 (The Hanged Man), 18 (The Moon), 2011 World Series, 21 (The World), 22 (XXII), 26 (Page of Wands), 28 (Two of Wands), 31 (Five of Wands), 32 (Six of Wands), 33 (Seven of Wands), 35 (Nine of Wands), 37 (King of Cups), 43 (Three of Cups), 44 (Four of Cups), 46 (Six of Cups), 50 (Ten of Cups), 52 (Queen of Swords), Albert Pujols, Alexi Ogando, Allen Craig, baseball, Chris Carpenter, David Freese, final results, Game 7, life lesson / what you are here to learn (month day y e a r of birth), Michael Young, Mike Napoli, Nelson Cruz, Nolan Ryan, numerology, outcome, personal month, personal year, prediction, predictions, real-world, real-world numerology, Ron Washington, Saint Louis Cardinals, sports, St.Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers, Tony La Russa, William De Witt Jr., win on October 28, 2011| Leave a Comment » The Rangers are back in the World Series for the second straight season after losing in five games to the San Francisco Giants last year in their first- ever appearance.How many Cardinals would you have named before you got to David Freese in picking an NLCS MVP before the series started.Freese was tremendous, though, as he totaled 12 hits with three home runs and nine RBI versus the Brewers.
