Tigers, Verlander Extend Contract

Posted by Ace Staff on February 4th, 2010

The Detroit Tigers just recently invested long term with Ace Justin Verlander, negotiating and finalizing his $80 million five-year contract earlier this afternoon. Last season Verlander proved himself as one of the league’s premier pitchers, racking up a total of 269 strikeouts in 240 innings with a 3.45 ERA. Detroit ended their 2009 campaign with a 6-5 loss in 12 innings to the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central tie-breaker. This marked the only time in MLB history where a team lost a three game lead with four games to go in the regular season. Verlander is confident his team will be able to make the proper adjustments to further succeed in 2010. “I want to win. That’s first and foremost,” he said. “I feel like this organization wants to win, and they’re going to put this team in a position year in and year out. That’s all I can ask for, to be part of a team that goes out there and has a chance to win our division and play in the playoffs. That was a major consideration for me.” The Tigers are scheduled to begin their new conquest in Kansas City against the Royals for three games from April 5th-8th. Detroit Tigers tickets are now available!

Royals to Host 2012 All-Star Game

Posted by Ace Staff on November 18th, 2009

The Kansas City Royals are expected to host the 2012 MLB All-Star game at Kauffman Stadium. The official announcement will come as early as next month’s winter meetings according to MLB sources. The Boston Red Sox were campaigning to have the events at Fenway as part of the Parks 100th anniversary celebration. Rob Neyer from ESPN.com weighed in with his opinions, saying “In 2012 it will have been only 13 years since the last time the Red Sox hosted the All-Star Game, while it will have been nearly 40 years for Kansas City…Red Sox fans might argue that Kansas City doesn’t “deserve” an All-Star Game, that the All-Star Game should by hosted by cities full of passionate fans. I’ve got some sympathy for that opinion.” Kauffman Stadium played host to its only other All-Star Game in 1973 when it was still referred to as Royals Stadium. Even though the Sox didn’t get the bid for 2012, there are still plenty of events to look forward to at Fenway. Don’t miss the Bruins Flyers Winter Classic showdown New Years Day, followed by the Legends Game the very next day. On January 8th Hockey East collegiate programs will get to face off on the Fenway ice. 2010 Boston Red Sox spring training and regular season tickets are available now!

Greinke Awarded 2009 Cy Young

Posted by Ace Staff on November 18th, 2009

Major League Baseball has just recently announced that Kansas City Royals phenom Zack Greinke is the winner of the 2009 American League Cy Young Award. Greinke won by a landside, ranking first on 25 of the 28 deciding ballots. He finished the season with 16 wins from his impressive 2.16 ERA. Other top candidates included Felix Hernandez, Justin Verlander, CC Sabathia and Roy Halladay. The young 25 year old has already experienced his ups and down in the big leagues. He led the AL in losses in 2005 and quit baseball the following year for about two months while diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. He is now the most feared pitcher baseball, despite his team’s lack of victories. “Greinke deserved it. Before the season was over, I said my vote was for him,” said Hernandez. “This has taught me that I need to be perfect, I will prepare myself to be stronger next season. I will need a superb year because just a good one, it’s not enough.” 2010 MLB regular season tickets are now available!

Buchholz, Red Sox Handle Royals

Posted by Ace Staff on September 25th, 2009

Red Sox DH David Ortiz delivered once again, this time going deep in the fourth and knocking in three game total RBI’s as Boston went on to defeat the Kansas City Royals 10-3.  Clay Buchholz pitched brilliantly for the Sox, holding the Royals scoreless in his six innings pitched while battling a fever. “I was expecting to have to battle through, especially after the first inning,” Buchholz said after his second scoreless outing this season. “I threw some good pitches that got hit, left some pitches up and was able to bounce back the next inning and got on a pretty good roll.” Heading into the home stretch of the 2009 regular season the entire Red Sox lineup is also on ‘a pretty good role.’  They are now five games behind the Yankees in the AL East Standings and need just three more wins to clinch the Wild Card.  Their first game at the Bronx this weekend is scheduled for tonight at 7:05 pm. Boston Red Sox tickets are still available!

Big Papi, Sox Dominate Kansas City

Posted by Ace Staff on September 24th, 2009

Boston designated hitter David Ortiz brought in three of his four RBI’s with a homer in the ninth inning, leading the Red Sox to blow out the Kansas City Royals 9-2.  Even though the fan favorite slugger got off to a slow start and is hitting .234 for the season, he has really turned it around for these last couple of months.  This year Papi has knocked 25 homers and has drove in 88 RBI’s. Red Sox manager Terry Francona knew Ortiz would eventually find his swing, and the organization couldn’t ask for a better time heading into the 2009 playoffs.  “I remember saying look up in the end, his batting average is going to be lower and he has to live with that,” Francona said. “As long as he doesn’t walk to the plate looking at that, he’ll be OK. That’s what has happened.” The Royals were only able to score two runs off Josh Beckett despite scattering 12 hits during his six innings pitched.  Boston looks forward to one more game at Kansas City before heading to New York to match up against the first place Yankees.

Sox, Yankees Look Forward to Weekend Series

Posted by Ace Staff on September 23rd, 2009

After another disappointing loss to potential Cy Young winner Zack Greinke and the Kansas City Royals, the Boston Red Sox are eager to take the last two games and head in to the highly anticipated three-game weekend series against the New York Yankees in the Bronx. The Yanks just clinched a playoff spot last night with their win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and hope to earn the AL division to finish out the season.  The Red Sox are six games behind New York in the division standings and seven games up on the Texas Rangers for the Wild Card. 

In light of last night’s loss, Boston aside from letting up five runs in the first inning shutout Kansas City for the rest of the game.  Victor Martinez kept his hit streak alive at 21 which set the bar for all switch-hitters in Red Sox history. “I just think a hitter like Victor, sometimes good hitters like that run into streaks,” said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. “He could line out four times. Hitters like Victor, you’re going to see that from time to time just because they’re good.”

Boston is scheduled to take on the Royals tonight and tomorrow before facing the Yankees on Friday.  Josh Beckett will get the start for tonight’s game.
