    Two questions.... first, is there a "baseline" from 3rd to home? If yes, then how was Ichiro not out of it?

    I literally came to ask this. What a joke of a play! If that version of schoolyard tag around homeplate is legal, it needs to be banned tomorrow. Such a beautiful game shouldn't allow plays so utterly dumb looking, by a Yankee nonetheless. So mad when I saw that.

    And then, this team and city exorcises those demons. The beast must be slayed, and its best and most satisfying if done by the Reds.

    I don't see exhausted bullpens being the issue when it comes to the playoffs. Last year, both the Cards and Rangers pitched more innings out of the bullpen than starters did and it didn't have a negative impact on each teams ability to make it to the World Series. The amount of off days plus the idea that teams can reorganize their rosters as they see fit seems to make the exhausted bullpen issue a moot point. Besides, the Cards have guys like Shelby Miller waiting to be called in if there is an overstressed bullpen issue. He's a rookie but he's proved more than capable of getting outs when the Cards need him to.

    How true this is, I don't know, but I saw someone explain that it is legal because unlike at other bags, the catcher is allowed to block your path to the plate.

    Ugh. I keep looking it up and all I can find is people gawking at what a great play it was. If that's legal, then why doesn't every play at the plate just become ring around the batters box? I can't even imagine how furious Orioles fans must be. He was out by ten feet before that circus started.

    Gold glover Derek Jeter gets let off the hook again.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Yeah, but didn't you hear the announcer? Jeter tricked him into staying. So that clearly doesn't count as a missed play.

    Mike, stop making sense.

    Hey, every game could go 15 innings from here on out...

    Agree 1,000%, Mike. In the playoffs, just too many off-days to wear down the bullpen too much. Even if the Cardinals exhausted the bullpen in a five-game series, they'd have two days off before the LCS if I'm not mistaken (or at least one).

    In my estimation, an exhausted bullpen will only happen if they were abused in the regular season to begin with. Not saying it can't happen in the playoffs, but all the off days make it harder.

    Very happy for The Orioles.

    I'd be all for a Reds-Orioles World Series.

    Plus lets not forget that the Cardinals, along with all the pitching staffs in the playoffs, have starters that will give them quality innings. Wainwright, Carpenter, and Lohse have the ability to give the Cardinals 7 strong innings even pitch complete games. There isn't a pitching staff in the playoffs right now that doesn't have those types of guys.

    I don't think you can say that about Carpenter right now. He doesn't have stamina yet, I don't think he can be counted on to ride. I'm hoping you can take the series, while I've seen enough of the Cards/Reds matchups this year, I like our chances and the homefield advantage, although the Nats are not playing their best ball of the year either.

    I was thinking the same thing. But we see guys take those really wide turns around 3rd all the time. I can't imagine that there's NOT a rule about that. I think the ump missed that one because he was focused on whether Wieters' tagged him or not. And I don't want to pick on the ump there simply because that was a fabulous call on the missed tag and him beating Wieters to the dish. But some clarification sure would be nice.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
