Bye Bye Limbaugh and MLB Playoffs

Good Morning Sports Fans!

As of yesterday, Rush Limbaugh’s bid to be part owner of the St. Louis Rams came to a stop when the radio host was dropped from the ownership group looking to purchase the franchise. Limbaugh, who is one of the highest paid radio personalities in the nation, was dropped from the group because “it made things more complicated.”

On his show, Limbaugh does have a tendency to be outspoken and has a style in which he often believes he is always right and everyone else whose opinion differs is wrong. Whether or not this had any factor in him getting dropped from the ownership group is still unknown. Limbaugh was only set to own a small portion of the team and probably was not going to have much say in the day to day matters.

Limbaugh does have enough money to become a part owner of a team and there will probably be more information out later on as to why he was dropped from the ownership group. Limbaugh’s conservative views don’t always sit well with others but the man does have a following and a passion for NFL football. It would not surprise me to see Limbaugh make bids for other teams.

Moving to the National League Championship Series, the Phillies and the Dodgers will suit up tonight for Game One of what is looking to be a historic series. Both teams have well skilled managers in Joe Torre and Charlie Manuel and have rosters loaded with talent. The Dodgers solid lineup with Manny Ramirez, Casey Blake, Juan Pierre and having Jim Thome come off the bench to pinch hit has been worked out well. The Phillies, who are coming off a World Series championship from last season, have struck gold with Cliff Lee being apart of the rotation and solid hitting by Ryan Howard. This series has the potential of going to seven games based off of how well the teams match up.

Looking at the American League now, the Yankees and the Angels will start their series on Friday. Similar to the NLCS, both teams are very talented and have loads of experience on their rosters. The Yankees offseason spending has proven to work so far as AJ Burnett and Mark Texeria have both paid huge dividends. The Angles have been solid coming out of the All-Star Break and their passionate fan base will serve as their 10th man in this series.

That’s it for now. Keep it real.

  1. wow…so many of the names that you mentioned in this post have played for Cleveland at some point in time. Plus, Charlie was the manager, but he has had good luck in Philly. They love him here! I’ll be cheering on the Phillies from Philly while wearing my Ryan Howard t-shirt. I want a Phillies v Yankees World Series and for the Phillies to win!

    • Most of the people I mentioned in that post are getting the last laugh….especially Charlie Manuel. As I pointed out in an earlier post, Manuel was fired to bring in…Eric Wedge. Manuel now has a World Series ring while Wedge is unemployed.
