The Cardinals just don't bug me, don't know why. They generally play the game the right way, La Russa is one of the better managers out there even though he is a boob. I originally said I was cheering for the Cardinals but on second thought I hope the Rangers win but this series has been so amazing I really don't care who wins, it was one of the better post season series I've seen in quite some time.
the entire post-season, as a whole, has been excellent. No clunker games or series, really (maybe the Texas clincher to send them to the WS?) and they've all been good, hard-played series.

Oh, and no Red Sox.

I would say the playoffs have been really entertaining but overall the defense and pitching have been pretty underwhelming. The hitting has been pretty incredible

"We'll see you tomorrow night." Wasn't that Joe's father that made that call 20 years ago? I don't care much at all for Buck/McCarver, but what an honor it must have been for Buck the younger to call the end of the game like that.

I wasn't impressed with the call at all. I understand that it was implied, but Buck should have gave credit to his dad before saying it, something like, "Just like my father said, 'We'll see you tomorrow night!'"

Without giving the credit, it sounded quite forced to me and, I thought, in bad taste. He couldn't come up with his own phrase?

I'd still be happier if it was the Brewers and not the Cards.

For sure. As great as the World Series has been I have struggled to watch much of it. What I have watched has been entertaining in a gut wrenching way

The Rangers have been my second favorite team for a long time. So, not only because I hate the Cards, but because I like the Rangers, I really want the Cardinals to be demolished.

Just started watching. How's the Chris Carpenter Cuss-O-Meter been tonight?

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

Rangers are swinging at some really bad pitches. They aren't being patient and making Carpenter work at all.

The way Tony goes to his bullpen I am shocked he hit Carpenter there

This game is destined to be a Cards win. They hold a 1-5 Ex-Cub Factor advantage

Everyone of those pitches was a strike on Gameday. That last one looked really good, but I am not watching live

That was clearly a strike on the corner. If you're not going to give the pitcher that advantage, that's bogus. What do they want him to do...lay it right down the middle every pitch?

it really pisses me off that the ump gave him a walk after he just tossed his bat and jumped up the pitch before.

So true. That was a nice pitch. Cards had a couple go their way last night like that

Wow, a game seven SEVERLY altered by a terrible umping job. That's the kind of call that puts a cloud over the whole series.
