I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
Another week of amazing baseball postseason action has yielded a new superstar for an unlikely team. The Kansas City Royals CF Lorenzo Cain has been a complete terror in the playoffs so far. For the week (officially Game 3 of the ALDS through Game 2 of the ALCS, 3-0 for the Royals), Cain went 7-11 with 5 runs scored, 2 doubles, 2 walks, and an RBI. With his speed and hot hitters behind him, he made it a virtual impossibility to get past his spot in the lineup without a run. In the postseason, that's how you sweep series. Three sweeps in a row. With all that, he was putting together amazing diving catches in the field inning after inning. The Royals are headed to the World Series, and Lorenzo Cain is a big reason why.
