    What is this strange strategy that Rogers and Weaver are doing? They seem to be throwing the ball inside on purpose. Reds pitchers never do that.

    Obviously, no one ever taught them the magic of "pitch to contact.":

    Ugh... FOX trying to play-up the brown stuff on Rogers' fingers. It was pine tar to make his grip better (same reason it is used on the bat handle)... dry hands due to the weather. Nothing to make the ball move funny. The umps did the right thing by making him remove it. No reason for ejection or a major in-depth analysis. He should have known better. No Emmy award will be had for the over-the-top analysis... so stop!

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    It is over the top. I agree. But I expect it from FoxSports.

    Inge hasn't been fooled by Weaver one bit tonight.

    I think Joe Buck just accused Sean Casey of being slow! Even when healthy!
    Where do they get their information, because I've never heard that before!

    Fear the speed of Sean Casey. It looks like that calf injury hasn't affected his speed after all.

    Weaver's curve really isn't that great. It's just that Granderson can't touch it.

    LaRussa and co. are messing with Rogers over the pine tar thing. Interesting. If he is cheating, do the Cards have to file a protest?

    I'm sorry, applying pine tar to a baseball would seem to be a fairly signifigant rules violation. Pitchers have to get permission from the umpires to blow on their hands when it's cold. How can pine tar be blown out of proportion, considering this is the World Championship of baseball?

    If Weaver gets out of this without giving up a run, the Cards will sweep this Series.

    A huge missed scoring opportunity for the Tigers. Bases loaded no outs and they don't score.

    Ya know. This board gets all pissy when the Reds' patient offense fails to get the runner in. Well, right there, you're seeing what happens when an impatient offense gets runners on. That door swings both ways.

    Thought I was watching the Reds there for a second that last Tigers AB.

    Bases loaded, no outs, no runs... how many times did we see situations unfold just like that this year?
