Well the Phillies won't win in a sweep at least. Brewers the only team up 2-0!

I hope that's the last game in Philly this year.

Cards are easily the most unlikable team in a post-season that includes the Yankees. Congratulations on your accomplishment.

If it means we have a better chance of getting to the world series, then I'll root for whoever. :p

I missed it, but what I'm seeing on Twitter is that La Russa ripped into the umpires giving the Phillies a different strike zone during that typically friendly chat with the booth from the dugout. Anyone see it?

l don't know what was more amazing about that interview, Tony LaRussa complaining about two different strike zones (which from what I could see was completely wrong) or Bob Brenley basically saying "I don't disagree with you." I thought LaRussa was a huge whiner before that but that took it to a new level.

If the Cardinals don't win this round, I hope they at least push the Phillies to 5. That should force Halladay to start twice in the NLDS and keep him on the bench to start the NLCS, and unlikely to pitch 3 times. That's good news, for whomever it would be facing them.

I'm mixed on cheering for the Cards. I live in STL and while it would be great to see the Brewers play in the NLCS (knocks on wood), I don't think I could take them losing to the Cardinals. I literally might have to pack up and move my wife and kids into my parents house in Menomonee Falls.

I can't cheer for the Cardinals. I'm not sold that they are "easier" to beat in the NLCS than the Phillies either. The Cardinals are hot and did just take 5 of 6 from us pretty easily not that long ago. Be nice to have the series go 5, but I want nothing to do with the Cardinals. If we were to lose to them in the NLCS it would be really tough to stomach.

Here's a video and write up about some of the calls the Cardinals took exception with. To me, the only call worth being upset about is the strike three to Utley. But of course the Cardinals find somebody/something to blame.

So basically the strike zone might've been slightly inconsistent, with a couple wrong calls here and there. Sounds like 99% of MLB games played. TLR will never stop topping himself.

Tigers must really not trust their bullpen. Verlander is at 120 pitches in the 8th. He had a rough previous inning but they brought him back out and this after pitching some the other night and warming up. The guy is an animal

My honest opinion is I'll be shocked if Valverde doesn't blow this game.

As for Cardinals vs Phillies, I think it is foolish to not beg for the Cardinals, getting the weaker team and home field advantage would be an easy 10-20% shift in our chances at the world series.

Valverde isn't good at all. Glad they beat NY though.

So maybe the Yankees in the World Series isn't a forgone conclusion yet. Go Tigers.

I said this to my wife last night. He has a massive gut. He was never small, but he looks at least 20-30 lbs heavier than when he was here.
