    I don't know about anyone else, but the absence of mashers in baseball this year is making me get back into watching the playoffs, despite the Reds not being there. More skill than just being able to hit a baseball far over the fences is going to decide who wins the World Series this year.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Um.... the Giants won the World Series in 2010 and it had nothing to do with them hitting the ball over the fence.

    Pretty dominant start from Gallardo puts the Brewers up 1-0 in their series with Arizona

    Berkman with a 3 run jack off of Halladay in the first.

    This is probably the only series that could be dreamt up where I'm rooting for the Cardinals

    This is a great match-up if you look past the records and look at the match-ups. Pujols, Berkman and, when he's in there, Holliday can hit anybody. The Phillies rotation against the Cards middle of the order should be fun.

    Ryan Howard homers to give the Phillies the lead.

    Pujols has had little success ahsinst Hollday, Lee or Hamels in his career.

    Berkman not particularly good agasnst LH pitching, though he's had some success against Lee and Hamels.

    Holliday not hitting much these days, Cards better off with Craig in there. Holliday has had little success against any of the Phillies 4 big starters.

    I just feel the need to point out that Derek Holland's mustache is so awful that it's mesmerizing.

    And, to add something that someone else might actually care about, the Rangers are up 5-3 now.
