And now they are headed to the World Series for the 2nd time in seven years under Jim Leyland.All season long the mantra preached on this website was one of patience, just hope they make the playoffs, and once they do anything can happen from there. And now we’ve seen how nicely...

The Telegraph reports that Rodriguez called her up after last Saturday’s game. Treacy’s friends say that she and A-Rod went on a date.“I think she was pleasantly...
