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!

Fear and Loathing in St. Louis


This is the fear and loathing Whirled Serious for Yankee fans.

Gotta figure the Cards need to win tonight, right? They go back to Boston down 3-2 they are going to need a whole lot of Buckner on their side to pull this shit out.

I got no call on the game tonight–but I’m not feeling especially optimistic. Just hoping the Cards find a way.

Never mind the nerves: Let’s Go Red Boids!

Home in the Heartland


Game Three, St. Louie. Says here the Sox take this one.

Hoping I’m wrong.

Never mind nuthin’:

Let’s Go Cards!

Cards look to leave Boston with the Serious tied one-game apiece. The Sox look to continue their postseason run of undisturbed good fortune.

Wacha vs. Lackey.

Never mind those shaggy bastards:

Let’s Go Cards!

Take 2


Well, Game 1 was revolting now, wasn’t it? Cards win tonight and they’ll have taken care of business. But they were shook last night and dammit if this whole postseason doesn’t have a bad vibe about it.

Sox vs. Cards. Nothing to do but root for St. Louis.

Never mind the bitterness:

Let’s Go Card-’nals!


Brace Yourselves For Bad News


The Sox are a win away from a trip to the Whirled Serious. Man, I’d love to see a Game 7 here but I think the Sox will do what the Cards did last night: take care of it.

Never mind those damn beards:

Let’s Go Tig-ers!

Winter Kills


But it’s knocking at the door for the Dodgers today.

Hate to say it but I think the Cards will end their season while the Red Sox take a 3-1 lead against the Tigers.

Belly 2 Belly


Couple of games today. First, the Red Sox will beat Justin Verlander in Detroit. Later, the Cards will take a 3-1 NLCS lead in Los Angeles.

Least that’s how I see it.

Never mind me: Let’s Go Base-ball!

Dodgers look to stay alive. They host the Cards tonight in Los Angeles.

Bottom’s Up


Tough loss for the Tigers. They had the Sox where they wanted them. They were poised to take a 2-0 lead. But they failed.

A split on the road is good. Verlander in Game 3 is good. Losing last night: rough.

ALCS: Game 2


Let’s Go Ti-Gers!

Double Feature


Couple of games today–we’ll be rooting for the visitors in both.

Let’s Go Base-ball!

The Unfair One


That’s the old term for a fastball pitcher who always has a lethal curve ball. Yeah, the home plate umpire had a generous strike zone last night, but Justin Verlander was a load. What an impressive performance.

I liked the A’s chances against the Red Sox more than I like the Tigers’ chances, but so be it:

Let’s Go Tigers.

One For the Money


For our man Ken:

Let’s Go A’s!

All Together Now


Never mind nuthin’:

Let’s Go Buc-cos!


Pain Management


Say the Pirates lose today, what’s worse the pain Pirates fans will feel or the pain Braves fans feel right now? Or the pain that A’s fans would feel should they lose tomorrow night. The Pirates are the Cinderella team of the 2013 playoffs. But the Braves and A’s keep making the playoffs only to get knocked out before they reach the Whirled Serious.

Last night I IM’d with an A’s fan and he said the Game 4 loss would haunt him for the rest of the winter. Unless, I said, they win Game 5.

He said, “The A’s never win Game 5.”

And what could I say to that? Other than I hope they prove him wrong.

Gettin’ Late Early


Rainy Monday in New York but today gives four playoff games. A’s and the Tigers up first. Then Pirates, Cards. Tonight gives the Rays trying to extend their season and later, the Dodgers try to move on to the NLCS.

Have at it, folks.

Let’s Go Base-ball.
