NLCS Game Twoski.
Rangers are gunna win this one...
Miggy just missed.
Drag. Rangers will do them in now.
Professional Hitter™ sighting! Joe Buck on Michael Young.
Tomorrow's starters are going to have to go deep
Shoot, I'd have sent the runner.
He just flat dropped it. Poor guy. This one is over.
That was a batting practice at bat. Great swing on the first pitch, just fouled it back, then skied one a million miles but foul. Then, well, straightened it all out and hits the grand salami. Dag. That's abuse.
Dang, a granny. And pie!
Brew Crew with some terrible "D" this game.
Pujols is pretty okay, huh?
i heard the walkoff grand slam by cruz, in the car.
i'm not rooting for either team...
not happy about the cards early - and big - lead. fuck, even punto the piranha getting in on the act.
the beast appears.
jeez. all yuni betancourt does is hit in the damn playoffs.
[never thought i'd be typing that sentence!]
Joe Posnanski on the randomness of the MLB playoffs. He doesn't think it matches the rest of the season, which is about "the long season, the day-to-day, the ability to overcome injuries, adversity, slumps, heat waves and all that."
But the wild card changed that.
But ever since then, the quirks and erratic nature of short playoff series has mostly muted the Yankees gigantic payroll and their cavalcade of stars. They've had the league's best record six times since 2002, but have only appeared in the World Series twice, and only won the World Series once. I, of course, feel no sympathy for the Yankees whatsoever. But I do think it's true that baseball's system was once built around trying to find the best team. And now the system is built much more around the spark of surprise.
brewers bully primed to give those 2 runs right back : /
yup, gave 'em both back...
braun is a frickin' monster!
cash 'em in, prince.
Wasted opportunity there.
crap. bases loaded. 1 out. double play. no runs...
ooh, BAD call on the dp.
weeks was SAFE at 1st. woulda had a run across and 2 outs. man, i know umpiring is hard, but the horrific umpiring that's gone on the past few seasons in the playoffs is unacceptable.
 that, and a bad call...
 True true. CANNOT blow a call like that at first base.
Miller Park seems unusally bright for an open-air park..
I still haven't forgiven Country Joe West for calling Robby Cano out for running outside the box in game 5 in 2005. Jeez. He wasn't running outside the box, and who calls that anyway, except when a runner is trying to evade a tag?
nothin' to show for it there, but hairston jr.'s been hitting the ball well this postseason.
 similar for yuniesky. and what a first name that is!
 that is a good grudge to hold! ; )
 it's getting early, late?! : ~
poo holes the doubles machine
there's emma's "molinas in the playoffs" at work!
cards are gonna get to double digits and tie this series up, heading back to the arch...
...and there's the double digits : /
And it's LaTroy Hawkins to the rescue.
 how right you are! ; )
prince destroyed that offering from boggs.
too little, too late, however...
11-3 headed to the 9th
and the cards get THAT run back, too.
jeez. an even dozen for the red boids...
How many homers in this game so far?
Seems like a lot.
 4 homers, 7 doubles. an error, wild pitch, caught stealing & 2 dp's
pujols had 4 extra base hits, prince had 2
Those are the nyastiest looking brats I've ever seen.
Or should I say, "the wurst..."
