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!
Games We Play
2013 world series
Let's go sweet, sweet Asteroid of Doom!
Let's see Rupert; Sox 60-40 tonight and 80-20 for the Series. Hope your wrong Jerry!
 The HELL you say!
Let's go Cardinals!
 Make those Bos-terds EAT their most expensive WS tickets ever!
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...
 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.
 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?
 I can never, ever get enough Rupert Pupkin ('It's often mispronounced AND misspelled'). Top-10 film for me.
Jim Joyce behind the plate sounds like Auntie Em hollering for Dorothy on strike calls.
I'm beginning to really, REALLY hate the fucking Cardinals.
HOW MANY FUCKING TIMES CAN THEY SHIT THEMSELVES IN A ROW?!?!?!?
Cards deserve the asteroid for wasting that opportunity.
Lackey is far from exceptional so far. The Cards had better get it together and do this.
 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.
This Cardinal team looks like....the Yankees last year vs. Detroit!
 No doubt.
Grit isn't the same as clutch, I guess.
But one thing we know: the Red Sox will never give up!
Damn. Quite the vanishing act by Wacha.
Perfect time for the asteroid, along with a disembodied voice saying "What the Hell is wrong with you teams!"
 Batters with RISP against Wacha in the post-season: 0-for-13.
Oh come on. Are you kidding?
Wacha has insane reverse-platoon splits. So crazy I'm a little surprised they wanted him to pitch to Napoli instead of Ortiz.
For the ugliest beard, the winner is either Gomes or Carp.
Ah, the much-beloved IBB. How I loathe it.
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.
So, Ortiz walking turns out to be exactly as valuable to the Red Sox as a homer would have been.
They never learn.
Cards must answer, or it's American Pickers.
 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!
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.
My Little Error. Cash it in or I want the asteroid strike now.
C'mon, sweet sweet Asteroid, strike now!
 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.
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.
 The obstruction play I saw live. I did not see the pick play until the following day. FWIW.
Fuck, I hate the fucking Cardinals ...
Please, sweet, sweet Asteroid of Death, spare us.
Goddamn motherfucking scumbag shit sox.
Fuck every last one of 'em straight to hell.
(yes, Nanny, I've already *said* that)
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 ...
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.
