I'm thoroughly enjoying tonight. Great meal, hanging with the wife and puppy dog, watching the Cards get smoked...life could be worse
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
I'm no fan of the Giants, but I'll take them beating the Cardinals rather than the opposite.
But, as I flipped the game on, I told me wife "this should be the Reds".
Pay attention to the open sky
Well, I swore I wasn't going to watch anymore of the playoffs....but I turned on the tv right at the beginning of that rather fun inning to watch. I blinked and it was 7-0. A Cardinal implosion is a beautiful thing. :O)
That being said, I couldn't care less who wins between SF and Detroit. Meh. Go Reds. *sigh*
99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
Bailey CYA winner
Hamilton ROY & GG
6 outs away
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
6 outs too many. Don't care who wins, so long as it's not the Cards.
Is it "next season" yet?
It's small consolation after what happened to the Reds, but at least Taint Louis will now be partners in misery. Blowing a 3-1 lead in the NLCS is every bit as devastating.
Another hit and run by Boche and the Giants and a fast pull of the starting pitcher even though he hadn't allowed a run. I wonder if Dusty is watching - if so, I hope he is learning something about game management
Sprinkling in my hood. Hurry up with this game.
The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle
