Can the Cards upset the Phils?
Can the Cards upset the Phils?
Yes. They might do it. Although Carpenter is pitching and he wasn't so good in game 1.
"I can't take this homerism anymore." - 10xWSChamps, August 11, 2010. A Cardinals fan having a problem with all the homerism on Redszone. Classic.

Carpenter vs. Halladay right?
I hate me some Carpenter but he can clutch up in big games. I'll still take Hallday at home though.
Either way, I don't like either team at all. I'm rooting for the winner of the Dbacks/Brewers series to come out of the National League.
I think the Reds fans worst nightmare already happened over 162 games, but I am rooting for the Phillies so it will stink if the Cardinals win lol.
If the Phillies lose they are going to need to close some of the bridges around here.
It will probably be one of the most disappointing postseasons in the history of Philly sports and we have had a lot of them with the Sixers losing heartbreakers to the Celtics.
The Cards stand a good chance with the momentum they have right now. It will be a good game, maybe a squirell or 2 will show up
I sure hope not. I am sick of hearing about stupid squirrels and all these Card fans that stopped rooting for them a month ago and are now back on the train!!!
Oh cheese and rice Philadelphia! Can you choke anymore? Letting Carpenter the punk single? and then Furcal on an error?
Nothing pleases me more than see the big spending Yankees, Phillies and Red Sox lose. A East Coast $$$high roller$$$ sweep.

Phillies are a example of overspending on pitching to the point it became a detriment to the rest of the team. Biggest bust in the last decade.
This is a good lessen for Reds fans. When you adjust for park, the Reds offense was fringe top 10 this year.
If evolution is outlawed, only outlaws will evolve!
But what can you say? Winning means a lot to that organization. They work to improve their roster in the winter and during the season. Our Redlegs perpetually rest on their laurels.
STL = can-do organization
I'm going to brush my teeth and drink a gallon of Listerine now.
Rounding third and heading for home...
One way to "even" it out would be for the LDS to go 7. That would give the teams with more overall talent, a bump.

Now the Yankees can take on the Phillies in the "overpaid" championship. The winner gets to play the Red Sox.
