When the St. Louis Cardinals, who needed the final day of the regular season to make the playoffs, begin their pursuit of their second World Series title in five years against last years runners-up, the Texas Rangers, there will be plenty of reasons to watch the Fall Classic. What we would like to know though, is which storyline of the 2011 World Series you find the most appealing? It could be the return of the Rangers, who advanced all the way to the World Series last year, only to be cut down by the San Francisco Giants in five games. If you recall in the off-season, the Rangers fell short in their bid to keep their ace Cliff Lee – who eventually signed with the Phillies. When this season started, most figured the Rangers had enough offence, but there was a pretty widely-held belief that the club didnt have enough quality starting pitching. But C.J. Wilson and the gang proved that to be wrong (four of Texas regular five starters posted a regular season ERA of under 4.00.) If the return of the Rangers doesnt grab you, what about Albert Pujols? Not only is Pujols one of the best players in the league, but after 10 years with the Cardinals, this could be his St. Louis swan-song, as hell be a free agent after the World Series. The 31-year-old slugger enters the Series on a tear, hitting .419 in the playoffs and while hes helping carry the Cardinals offence with Matt Holliday, hes also putting any doubts to rest as to what his value could be on the open market. If the Cardinals win the Series would Pujols be more or less likely to stay? That question could and likely will end up in the narrative as the series continues. But even the storylines around Pujols dont compare to Josh Hamilton. By now, everyone knows about the three years he was out of baseball battling drug and alcohol issues. But this year, Hamiltons resolve was tested again as he was involved in a tragic accident in Arlington back in July. Given the circumstances, that would be a burden difficult for anyone to bear. A World Series win certainly wont change what happened, but it could certainly be a cathartic moment for Hamilton, the Rangers and their fans. On a nationalistic standpoint, maybe youre looking forward to seeing some former Toronto Blue Jays capture baseballs Holy Grail. Whether its long-departed Jays like Michael Young or Chris Carpenter or the group of most recent Jays, like Marc Rzepczynski and Octavio Dotel, it could be the Canadian content that lures you in. Whatever your reasoning, our question to you is: Which World Series storyline do you find the most compelling? As always, its Your Call!

The former Detroit Red Wings captain was named to the Order of Hockey in Canada on Wednesday along with former womens national team captain France St-Louis and legendary university coach Clare Drake. Xavier Su a-Filo Texans Jersey . He was 26 years old at the time and coming off his best season in Philadelphia. But his faith had led him in a different direction, it led him to Sacramento.Free agent Nelson Cruz and the Baltimore Orioles have reached agreement on a one-year deal, giving the slugger a fresh start after his drug suspension. A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press on Saturday that Cruz will earn about $8.5 million, and can make more in performance bonuses. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract wasnt complete. Other media outlets had reported a deal was in place. The 33-year-old Cruz was suspended 50 games last year while with the Texas Rangers as a result of Major League Baseballs investigation into the Biogenesis drug scandal. He returned from the penalty in time to play one game -- he went 0 for 4 in the Rangers loss to Tampa Bay in a tiebreaker for the second AL wild-card spot. Baltimore began full-squad workouts at spring training earlier this week, and Cruz was among the last prominent free agents to find a team. Manager Buck Showalters team opened camp still in need of a designated hitterr, preferably someone to join big league home run champion Chris Davis in the lineup.dddddddddddd Cruz may well find the cozy dimensions at Camden Yards to his liking -- he is a career .333 hitter with two homers and nine RBIs in 81 at-bats at the ballpark. Baltimore signed Delmon Young to a minor league contract in the off-season, and also was looking at free agent Kendrys Morales. Cruz, a two-time All-Star in the outfield, is expected to become Baltimores DH. If so, he could be the Orioles 12th different opening day DH in 12 years. Cruz hit .266 with 27 homers and 76 RBIs in 109 games last year. Hes averaged 27 homers in the last five seasons. The Orioles finished 85-77 last season, a year after they made their first playoff appearance since 1997. Danny Valencia was most often in the DH spot, starting 38 times and hitting .304 overall with eight homers and 23 RBIs. Baltimore traded Valencia to Kansas City for David Lough in December.
