Umpire Dan Iassogna deserves credit for making the correct call on a difficult play to judge at home plate during Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder was trying to score from first on a double down the left field line by Delmon Young in the second inning. Left fielder Gregor Blanco threw in to home as Prince Fielder was rounding third, and the relay throw in to catcher Buster Posey barely beat Fielder.
Fielder slid into home, which slowed down his momentum. As his body was dragging through the dirt to the plate, Posey used a sweep tag to get him on the behind. Though Fielder was upset with the call, and manager Jim Leyland came out to ask Iassogna about it, there is little doubt the correct call was made.
The next two Detroit batters made outs — Jhonny Peralta popped up to the infield, and Avisail Garcia struck out — so the game remained scoreless. What a great relay by the Giants, and what a great call by Iassogna.

Personally, I didn't think that Detroit Tigers slugger Prince Fielder would ever hang out with rapper Eminem but I would be totally wrong.
Check out this video of Prince hanging out at Eminem's studio at Eight Mile Road courtesy of the folks over at Windows Phone:
Since the Tigers are now down 2-0 to the Giants, maybe Jim Leyland should pitch Marshall Matth

California is certainly no stranger to earthquakes, and that certainly includes San Francisco baseball fans, who felt the ground rumble beneath their feet just prior to the 1989 World Series.

It was only Game 2 of the 2012 World Series, but the Detroit Tigers had yet to hold a lead, and they had an opportunity to go up 1-0 in the second inning with a previously shaky starter in Madison Bumgarner on the hill for the San Francisco Giants. Prince Fielder, listed at 275 pounds but probably closer to 300, was on first base with no one out, and ALCS MVP Delmon Young was at...

Prince Fielder told the Detroit Free Press that grown men see him on the street and want to take part in the handshake he has with Miguel Cabrera. Fielder wouldn’t demonstrate how it’s done, calling it “top secret.” But technology blew the cover on that. Now with this tutorial, you and your grown men friends can do the fancy/funky/awkward ritual enjoyed by the Triple...
The Detroit Tigers took on the San Francisco Giants in game 1 of the World Series Wednesday night. Earlier in the week, Detroit’s own Eminem caught up with Tigers Prince Fielder. That’s a pretty sheer shirt there Prince. Game 1 went to the Giants 8-3. Game 2 is tonight back in San Francisco. [...]
This hasn't been the best October for baseball's 200 million men.
Alex Rodriguez (275 million) batted .120 in the postseason, was benched or pinch-hit for six times, and, despite 647 career home runs, now represents the most odious player investment in North American professional sports.
Albert Pujols (240 million) had three fewer hits than A-Rod in this postseason, because...

This is going to be a very hairy World Series.
Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is looking seriously scraggly. Same goes for teammate Sergio Romo, whose facial fuzz has its own Twitter account. Tigers slugger Prince Fielder goes for a double - dreadlocks and an overgrown beard.
And not to forget injured San Francisco closer Brian Wilson. His dyed, jet-black thicket inspired a '...

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Tigers are supposed to win the World Series. Now they trail the Giants, two games to none, and their fans want to know whom to blame.
Lets take a look at the candidates, shall we?
Theres Justin Verlander. He had a lousy Game 1 and Pablo Sandoval didnt.
Theres Gene Lamont. The Detroit third base coach controversially waved home Prince Fielder on Delmon Youngs...
While the National League will be represented by the San Francisco Giants who last appeared in the World Series in 2010, winning it all against the Texas Rangers. With that said lets take a look at the 2012 World Series between the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants:
When voting for the American League Most Valuable Player award is announced Nov. 15, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout will learn where he stands with the baseball writers, who select the MVP. Trout already knows how the AL front-office executives view him, as he was the only unanimous selection in voting for a postseason All-Star team. The Sporting News polled 30 general...
