Sadly, Cliff Lee has some explaining to do as well.

Maybe Carpenter should have a sit-down with his boy and tell him that, frankly, dad's not really that good.

And he whines.

He's probably still busy explaining to his son how the cards are in the playoffs while tredheads had a losing record and are home watching them.

I think what Carpenter did was admirable (as admirable as it can be coming for a Cardinal, especially him). I actually think that TLR may have made a huge mistake with starting Carpenter, a series changing mistake, even thought they won.

The Cards did end up winning the game but they burned their best pitcher probably for the rest of the series, as well as burning up their pen. The TBS broadcast kept referencing Smoltz saying that it isn't the start on 3 days rest, its the start after that (game 5). It was a huge risk, a risk that really didn't end up paying off, and a risk that may have changed the series.

the reds (gotta love auto correct)... I doubt Chris Carpenter's son spends a great deal of time thinking about baseball in the PNW.

That's okay, we'd rather see the team build for the future than win now...apparently. Winning has to be sustainable...apparently.

Don't worry. Our Dayton Single A team was good. Reds are almost ready.

Brewers made moves, went "all in" and got ousted 1st Rd. Wonder what the reaction would be if Cincy traded Mes and Co and had the same result.

When did the Brewers get ousted? Surely not this year

Whoa, what was I thinking??? That's what happens when you are posting and reading Cinderella at the same time.

My mind was on the Phils disappointment. Who could be subbed in my post.

Greinke says Carpenter has a phony attitude...

I'd say phony is a good term for Carpenter but not for the reasons Greinke stated. I'd say the attitude is genuine, the dude really is a lowlife jerk.

His phoniness was last year when he pulled out the Helen Lovejoy "won't someone PLEASE think of the children?!!?" act. Yea, whatever, Carp.

Wonder if Molina will pick a fight with Grienke when he comes up to bat in the series?

depends on if Greinke calls the Cardinals a bunch of little *****es and then tries to act like everythings cool.

I still think Brandon Phillips was closer to the truth than Greinke. But the guy that said it best was the Brewers announcer after the Cardinals threw at a Brewer player in early August:

"The Cardinals fashion themselves as the keepers of baseball etiquette....That was uncalled for. It's just bush league, that's what it is. Bush league. ....Once again, they're nothing if not predictable, complain about everything, but that's Cardinal's baseball."

Teammates always love their team...... with the exception of Maybe Ty Cobb, Alex Johnson and D'Angelo Jimenez.

Isn't that the point though? Why is it important that Grienke loves CC? I doubt the Giants waited half and hour for Bonds to enter the clubhouse before they celebrated and frankly, without Bonds, they wouldn't have celebrated winning a playoff series.

Besides, the overall point that makes this thread so surreal is that CC is still pitching and Reds fans are just pitching a fit. In other words, it's bad to call scoreboard in the first inning but it's really strange to call scoreboard after the game when one team is still playing and the other one isn't.

It's called schadenfreude.

Unfortunately it was extremely premature.
