It Ain’t Over ’til it’s—Hey: It’s Over


Cards look to stay alive and force a Game 7.

I say the Sox end it tonight.

Never mind the bollocks:

Let’s Go Cards!

Let's go sweet, sweet Asteroid of Doom!

2 MSM35   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:00 pm

Let's see Rupert; Sox 60-40 tonight and 80-20 for the Series. Hope your wrong Jerry!

[0] The HELL you say!

Let's go Cardinals!

4 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:02 pm

[3] Make those Bos-terds EAT their most expensive WS tickets ever!

5 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:08 pm

If it goes as you say, Alex, I disavow any knowledge of this action. But what is Big Papi takin'? He was finished two years ago when he had to wean from PEDs, but now...

6 Matt Blankman   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:13 pm

[5] Whether or not he's juiced on something bothers me less than the whole hypocrisy surrounding the issue from the fans (and MLB). This guy tested positive and yet no one calls him on it! Somehow Palmeiro and McGwire are Hitler and Goebbels and this guy is Santa Claus. Makes me nuts. Either they're all scumbags or it's okay. Not fair to pick and choose.

7 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:22 pm

[6] As a wayward youth, I was taught to deny, deny, deny. Papi was outed on a list that was not to be public, and never tested positive again. There was nothing to be done, he never had to "lie" under oath. Maybe Arod should have kept his mouth shut?

[0] I can never, ever get enough Rupert Pupkin ('It's often mispronounced AND misspelled'). Top-10 film for me.

Go Cards!

9 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:33 pm

Jim Joyce behind the plate sounds like Auntie Em hollering for Dorothy on strike calls.

10 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:38 pm

I'm beginning to really, REALLY hate the fucking Cardinals.


11 rbj   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:39 pm

Cards deserve the asteroid for wasting that opportunity.

12 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:40 pm

Lackey is far from exceptional so far. The Cards had better get it together and do this.

13 Matt Blankman   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:45 pm

[7] He did issue a classic non-denial denial at the time, but that's not my point. The point is that he is treated differently than the other players who have been outed or seriously suspected of being dirty. I'm not saying anything should have been done, just that I'm wary of how easily he's embraced while others are bad-mouthed.

14 Matt Blankman   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:46 pm

This Cardinal team looks like....the Yankees last year vs. Detroit!

15 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:48 pm

[13] No doubt.

16 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:50 pm

Grit isn't the same as clutch, I guess.

But one thing we know: the Red Sox will never give up!

17 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:50 pm

Damn. Quite the vanishing act by Wacha.

18 rbj   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:51 pm

Perfect time for the asteroid, along with a disembodied voice saying "What the Hell is wrong with you teams!"

19 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 7:56 pm

[17] Batters with RISP against Wacha in the post-season: 0-for-13.

20 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:02 pm

Oh come on. Are you kidding?

21 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:04 pm

One more.

22 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:06 pm

Wacha has insane reverse-platoon splits. So crazy I'm a little surprised they wanted him to pitch to Napoli instead of Ortiz.

23 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:07 pm

For the ugliest beard, the winner is either Gomes or Carp.

24 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:09 pm

Ah, the much-beloved IBB. How I loathe it.

25 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:09 pm


26 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:10 pm

Well, congratulations to the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox.

Die in a fucking grease fire you choking dog sacks-of-shit St. Louis Cardinals.

27 RIYank   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:10 pm

So, Ortiz walking turns out to be exactly as valuable to the Red Sox as a homer would have been.

They never learn.

28 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:10 pm

Cards must answer, or it's American Pickers.

29 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:11 pm

[26][27] Well, I'm out. Goign to avoid all baseball related web pages for at least a month, can't deal with the Beard Love that is coming.

Thank the gods the NBA is back!

30 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:14 pm

Yup. Maybe I'll check back in a few hours. This series is about to disappear down my memory hole never to be thought of again.

31 rbj   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:17 pm

My Little Error. Cash it in or I want the asteroid strike now.

32 rbj   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:21 pm

C'mon, sweet sweet Asteroid, strike now!

33 Matt Blankman   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:22 pm

[30] Nah, the obstruction and the pick off are memorable. I wish they weren't, but...

At least this year Boston wasn't a wild card. They genuinely were the best team in baseball, much as I hate to admit it.

34 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:29 pm

It would be nice if just once, once, the Red Sox would have to face a WS opponent that didn't wet themselves in fear and played them nearly as tough as the Marlins or Diamondbacks played us.

Unfuckingbelievable ...

35 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:34 pm

[33] The obstruction play I saw live. I did not see the pick play until the following day. FWIW.
[34] Yup.

36 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:39 pm

Fuck, I hate the fucking Cardinals ...

37 rbj   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:45 pm

Please, sweet, sweet Asteroid of Death, spare us.

38 thelarmis   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:51 pm

Goddamn motherfucking scumbag shit sox.

Fuck every last one of 'em straight to hell.

39 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 8:56 pm

Fuck, I hate the fucking Cardinals ...

(yes, Nanny, I've already *said* that)

40 cult of basebaal   ~  Oct 30, 2013 10:38 pm

Well, the Sox did what they had to against an opponent that pissed their pants and shit their beds.

Meanwhile, you ... yes, I'm talking to *you*, you miserable shit-choking-dog Cardinals, I'm talking to *you* ... the next time you see me coming you'd better run ...

41 Matt Blankman   ~  Oct 30, 2013 11:10 pm

I always feel like bad things happen when I'm rooting AGAINST someone rather than FOR someone. This series reinforced that. These are the two teams I really didn't want to watch in the WS.

Oh well.
