Re: 2012: The Season That Was
A couple of others making their last appearance, one was in the game with Chipper. Ben Sheets pitched one inning saying this was his last game. I saw earlier this morning that Omar Vizquel is hanging it up too.
I can remember the Braves announcers way back talking about a young prospect named Chipper Jones that they had high hopes for. Now he's retiring. Makes you feel that much older.
The A's really did sneak up on everyone. That was an amazing comeback they had. Also one the bigger collaspes in MLB history by the Rangers.
Never would have fathomed there was a chance for a Beltway World Series. I live in the DC area and both of these franchises have been the pits. The Nationals since they arrived and Orioles since the mid 90's. Buck Showalter has to be manager of the year unless Melvin gets it. Those two probaby should share that award.
Also a couple of stud rookies made a big impact. Trout with the Angels is a true superstar. Harper with the Nats had a very good rookie season and has shown flashes of greatness. Maybe even a rookie named Frazier could be a star?
Was there 12 no hitters? I thought it was seven.
