Scherzer is close to "Pedro in his prime" territory.

Scherzer's is probably my favorite non-Sox pitcher.

Boston the big favorite to win it all.

But in the playoffs, pressure to wrap up a monster season becomes too great for some teams.

Either they win it all, or we find out who this year's version of Grady Little will be.

Vince Velasquez tries out his mound skills in a big games for the Utes tonight. He hits well, too. Which is what they need. Wilson Ramos reports for duty.

heh

persistence.

Off the top of my head, I think the '60 Yankees or '69 Orioles may have been the best pennant winners (edit--I saw) not to win their respective World Series.

I meant to include "I saw"

but 111 wins and getting swept in the Series would have to be head of the Grady Little Division.

I remember the good old days when the words "pennant winner" was widely understood to mean league champ.

That's how I read it and why I didn't mention the 2001 Mariners.

Exactly, they did not win the AL pennant in '01.

I expected you and most others here understood the gist and didn't see the need to spell it out or dumb it down.

But the troll got to mention Grady Little and the '08 Pats, so he's happy but clueless.
