The Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees square off in game 6 of the 2010 ALCS, a series that has been historic, exciting, and defining for many players. The Rangers have the chance tonight to put the Big Apple away for good, clinching their first ever World Series appearance. The Yankees, on the other hand, obviously need to show their experience and playoff dominance as they close in on their greatly desired 29th World Series Championship against a team who has never even been in a Conference Series until this year.
Keys to Success
Nelson Cruz. the Rangers' right fielder, is the player of choice for Texas. In this post season, he's batting .378 with 4 home runs and 6 RBI. Behind MVP contender Josh Hamilton, Nelson Cruz has contributed the most to this club. He needs to get his hits early in the ballgame against the young right hander Phil Hughes to develop some momentum for the rest of the lineup.
Also, Texas' team post season batting average? .285 so far. More video game stats? I think yes.

3/2’s EPL Weekend Match Guide
Tottenham vs Everton- White Hart Lane
Finding the back of the net three times against Inter Milan is no small feat, and Tottenham will look to build on their midweek success by taking on a struggling Everton. With both clubs having won their previous two league matches neither side will be looking forward to slowing down their momentum. Expect a close match but Tottenham’s midfield generals are too much for Everton and their defensive frailties.
Expected result: 2-1 Tottenham
“From Order Into Chaos”
In the clusterfuck that has become the 2010 NFL season, we are poised to witness the first real dogfight to the NFL Playoffs in the last decade. With the Cowboys, Vikings, and Chargers all languishing at the bottom of their respective divisions, there are questions that need to be asked, namely, why are all these teams underachieving at precisely the same moment? Does this represent a shift in the game itself? Or will we eventually see order sprout from chaos and the perennial favorites rise up to defend their hopes of making the playoffs?
The hell we are.
