The Giants thumped the Royals but good last night and now the Whirled Serious is tied, 2-2.

The Game 1 starters return for a critical Game 5, the final game by the Bay. Be interesting to see if James Shields can finally deliver the kind of start we’ve seen from him for years in the AL.

Root-root-rootin’ for the Royals.

Trouble in Mind

Feels more than sorta necessary for the Royals to win tonight if they stand a chance in the Serious.

The Whirled Serious

Pulling for the Royals though I think the Giants will win it all.

Hope I’m wrong. And hope it goes 7.

ABC: Always Be Closing

Giants look to close out the Cards and head to the Whirled Serious.

But maybe the Cards’ll prove to be a tough out and take this series back to St. Louis.

Either way, we’ll be watching.

And For My Next Trick…

Can the Royals winning streak continue? Will the Cards tie up the NLCS?

Which one of these?

About That Time

tumblr_ndb7jjfJ6z1qbhl2oo1_500

It was a beautiful, crisp fall day in New York. The sun was out, the air was cool. Now, in the evening, it’s cold.

Good day for cooking. Made an apple crumble pie with The Wife this afternoon. We’ll have a slice each tonight, she’ll bring the rest to work tomorrow.

Meantime, after hours of football–and more tonight for the locals (Giants-Eagles, which is never no joke)–we’ve got Game 2 of the NLCS. The Giants cruised last night behind their stud, Bumgardner. Let’s see if the Cards can even the series before they head out to San Francisco.

Never mind nuthin’:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Something Old Something New, Something Orange Something Blue

O’s vs. the Royals. It’s got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? I’ll be happy for either team should they win but I’m siding with the O’s to start. Because of Buck, really. Plus, they’ve just got a lot of likable guys. Royals are hilarious, all those fast guys–Hosmer and Alex Gordon, and all those live arms in the bullpen.

Anyhow, hope it goes 7 and ends in extra innings.

Show and Prove

Dodgers up against it in St. Louis today. L.A. is going with their ace on 3 days rest. What cherce do they have?

Later, the Nats look to force a Game 5 themselves as they send Gio Gonzalez to the hill.

We’ll be watching:

Get Your Back Up Off the Wall

Elimination games from here on out in the American League.

I’m rooting for the Orioles to win the series but today I’m pulling for David Price. Would like to see the series go five.

In that spirit I should want the Royals and Angels to go five as well but I think I’m rooting for KC to end it tonight at home.

Happy Sunday.

The Great 2014 American League Wildcard Sudden Death Elimination Game

tumblr_ncp11u7aCN1qbhl2oo1_1280 The 2014 playoffs start tonight in Kansas City in a great match-up of gun-for-hire Ace pitchers: James Shields–Big Game was Worthy, remember–vs. sour ass Jon Lester. It’s likely the last game of one of those players’ careers with that their team–and even the winner is likely to split from his team via free agency as well. I don’t have a strong favorite in tonight’s game. Either way, I’m going to be rooting for the winner big time over the Angels. I’d like the see the A’s win more only because I like the idea of the ALDS being between divisional rivals. And it’d be pretty funny if the A’s pulled it out of their ass and got to the ALCS. So, let’s sit back and take it all in and be happy there’s still some baseball left–the best part, some might say. Should be fun. Let’s Go Base-ball! Picture by Bags.

And Now, The End is Here

Derek Jeter

The Yanks got pounded yesterday to the tune of 10-4. Today gives their last game of the season.

One last time to say goodbye to our pal Jeter.
