The winner of this game wins the World Series.
   2. Phil Coorey. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 09:27 AM (#2217573)
May the best team win, I really don't know who I am hoping wins. I'd love to see the Cards win for Sheriff Blalock and DCW3, but the Mets fans here are favourites of mine as well...

In any case, good luck!!!

WIN OR GO HOME!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOT!

Picking up the theme from yesterday . . .

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Rage,
you magnificent Mets. Don't let the season die tonight!

Two rented brothers. Their faces keep changing
Just like these feelings I have for you
And nothing's forever not even five minutes
When you're headed for the finish line

Just win, baby.

Billy Wagner's playoff record: 10ER in 10.7 IP.
   8. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 01:49 PM (#2217668)
With the NL pennant (and the ensuing right to be Kitty Litter) on the lineā€¦

You know, I'm trying to remember the last time everyone was so absolutely <u>certain</u> one team was going to win a post-season series. Let me see . . . when was that again . . . . Hmmmmm.... Oh yes. I know.

Just about a week or so ago. Yankees were going to crush the puttytats. Yup. That was it. Best line-up ever, wasn't that what I was hearing? Poor Kenny Rogers was going to wet his pants.

How'd those Yankees do in the ALCS?

Somehow, I suspect the NL Champs will show up in Detroit Saturday night.
   9. chemdoc Posted: October 19, 2006 at 01:52 PM (#2217672)
Somehow, I suspect the NL Champs will show up in Detroit Saturday night.

I think that would be a good idea unless they're planning to forfeit Game 1.

I'm looking for a 16-inning marathon tonight, in which neither starter makes it out of the 2nd inning. Who's with me?
   10. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 01:56 PM (#2217674)
Billy Wagner's playoff record: 10ER in 10.7 IP.

Wagner's making us sweat. Bad pitch selection last night was the culprit. But it was a good idea to get him an inning in the non-save situation, since he hadn't pitched since Game 2 on the 13th. He needed to get the work, I think.
   11. Rob Base Posted: October 19, 2006 at 01:57 PM (#2217676)
When did everybody forget that Kenny Rogers and Nate Robertson are Kenny Rogers and Nate Robertson? Sure, they're quality major league pitchers, but they are both very beatable. Verlander and Bonderman are true stars, but Verlander sure looked beatable in the second half too. And if Detroit doesn't get the kind of amazing performances out of its staff that it's been getting since the start of the postseason, that's a very vulnerable team.

If Rogers and Robertson show up the way they've been playing up until now, forget it, it's over. But that's no foregone conclusion.
   12. Dan Broderick Posted: October 19, 2006 at 01:59 PM (#2217679)

I agree. When he came out to pitch in Game 2 and Sandman was playing Shea was going nuts. It was still loud last night but there was a lot of apprehension. Throw ####### fastballs!!!
   13. Free Rob Base Posted: October 19, 2006 at 02:09 PM (#2217687)
Don't worry guys. I have figured out the formula for victory. When my two and half month old son is decked out in Mets gear this year in the playoffs we are 5-0. When he is not, 1-3. He will be sure to be wearing the blue and orange tonight. I'd stuff him into some Met diapers if I could find them.
   14. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 02:21 PM (#2217701)
I'd stuff him into some Met diapers if I could find them.

Make some, damnit! Desperate times call for desperate measures. This is no time to let a hole in the Mets' marketing strategy get in your way. Homemade is always the best anyhow.

Get some Mets' decals or something, or a Mets' patch, or if necessary just cut out some glossy Mets' logos from an old yearbook. Slap them on a few diapers -- sew them on or tape them on or glue them on -- whatever it takes! If you do not have an ample supply of Mets' diapers by game-time, you will have utterly failed in your duty as a Mets' fan, and corrective action will be taken.

HIS CHILD SHOULD BE TAKEN AWAY!!!!

Keep this dream season going.

I love this team.

Offhand, I would say that Sam is pretty pumped up.

And, once again, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Game 7 :)

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold


sorry, cards fans. they were pretty delicious.
   20. Urban Faber Posted: October 19, 2006 at 03:48 PM (#2217804)
This has been an entertaining series. Good luck tonight.

However it comes out, it will be interesting to see who starts Game 1 in Detroit.
   21. Rowland Office Supplies Posted: October 19, 2006 at 03:54 PM (#2217809)
No dog in this fight. Just gimme drama. Tear it up, fellas.

Sam: Too funny. I'd put my wife to work on it but she already thinks I'm nuts.

What's the over/under on pitchers used by the Mets tonight. I set the line at 5.5.
   23. strong silence Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:13 PM (#2217827)
NLCS Game 2

402. strong silence Posted: October 13, 2006 at 11:48 PM (#2211024)

This is on track for 7 games. My prediction that the Mets will win in 7 appears realistic.


And 7 games is great because I AM A BASEBALL FAN!
   24. strong silence Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:17 PM (#2217835)
But, I'm also a big, big fan of underdogs. Who is the underdog in Game 7?

Mets because of its rookie manager and cast-off SP?

Cards because of its pathetic offense?
   25. bibigon Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:25 PM (#2217848)
Easily the Cards.
   26. strong silence Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:28 PM (#2217853)
Why easily? Cards have won 3, Mets have won 3. Why easily?
   27. Bob Koo Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:32 PM (#2217856)
Let's Go Mets!
   28. Buddha Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:33 PM (#2217858)
When did everybody forget that Kenny Rogers and Nate Robertson are Kenny Rogers and Nate Robertson? Sure, they're quality major league pitchers, but they are both very beatable.

Kenny Rogers says tell that to the Yankees.
   29. bibigon Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:37 PM (#2217864)
Why easily? Cards have won 3, Mets have won 3. Why easily?


Because the Mets don't have Juan Encarnacion and Scott Spiezio in the middle on their lineup?

WOW!

10. greenback44 Posted: October 13, 2006 at 12:35 PM (#2209753)

Tony LaRussa has managed teams through 21 post-season series, up to and including the 2006 NLDS. He's 11-10. His teams have had 11 ps series in which they won the first two games, and of course they've won all 11. In series where they didn't win both of the first two games, his teams are 0-10.


It's the talent isn't it? His great teams dominate but teams that are evenly matched or worse lose. That is intuitive. Or is it luck/random variation?
   32. Karl from NY Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:46 PM (#2217880)
So, trick question: What happened the last time the Mets were in a series where they were down 3-2, won game 6, and there was a rainout in the series?
   33. CraigK Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:52 PM (#2217886)
I had a dream of how tonight's game ends:

Wagner entices Rolen to ground out to the pitcher with runners on 2nd and 3rd in the top of the ninth to end the game with the Mets winning 6-1.

Wierd it was so damn vivid.
   34. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:53 PM (#2217889)
What happened the last time the Mets were in a series where they were down 3-2, won game 6, and there was a rainout in the series?

Orel Fricking Hershiser happened, that's what.
   35. Karl from NY Posted: October 19, 2006 at 04:58 PM (#2217897)
Sam, you're just too good.
   36. Spahn Insane Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:01 PM (#2217898)
I'm apparently missing something. Why was Duncan on the bench last night instead of Spiezio?
   37. J. Cross Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:03 PM (#2217902)
What's the over/under on pitchers used by the Mets tonight. I set the line at 5.5.

I'm going over. I think we use 6.
   38. Hubie Brooks (Not Really) Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:06 PM (#2217905)
Why was Duncan on the bench last night instead of Spiezio?


Because his little soul patch thing is quite the hot seller in St Louis.

It's all about product placement.
   39. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:09 PM (#2217907)
I'm going over. I think we use 6.

Push.

Perez 3.1
Oliver 2.1
Bradford .1
Mota 1
Heilman 1
Wagner 1

(Wagner's the .5. Have you seen how small he is? Yoda could look him in the eye.)
   40. Bob Koo Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:17 PM (#2217919)
I say: Perez 2, Oliver 2, Hernandez 1, Feliciano 0.1, Bradford 0.2, Heilman 2, Wagner 1.
   41. strong silence Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:20 PM (#2217920)
What's the over/under on unconventional managing moves made by Willie Randolph tonight? I set the line at 2. Delgado suicide squeeze will be one. Two will be allowing a pitcer to pitch to Pujols with 1b open.
   42. Free Rob Base Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:25 PM (#2217924)
You know it would be really cool if Perez pulls a Booby Jones (a game I was at by the way). Could happen.
   43. Dan Broderick Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:27 PM (#2217925)
this is the longest ####### work day ever.
   44. Old Matt Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:27 PM (#2217926)
Last night was a lot of fun.

Perez does it tonight. "The worst Game 7 starter ever," says Neyer.
   45. strong silence Posted: October 19, 2006 at 05:40 PM (#2217932)
This will be an okay game. Perez, dropped balls, inept Cards lineup makes this Game 7 inferior to any NY-Boston regular season game.

But Reyes is a star and so fun to watch. He reminds me of Ichiro!
   46. Russlan is not Russian Posted: October 19, 2006 at 07:11 PM (#2218032)
If the Mets wins this game, Oliver Perez wll always be Mr. 94 to me.
   47. Richard Gadsden Posted: October 19, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2218035)
The winner of this game wins the World Series.

That's the other Game Seven - the one a week on Sunday.

My prediction: Julio Franco, pinch-hit, walk-off home run.
   48. Russlan is not Russian Posted: October 19, 2006 at 07:22 PM (#2218038)
My prediction: Julio Franco, pinch-hit, walk-off home run.

Hate to be an annoying loser, but there's no way a Met could hit a walkoff in Detroit.

You underestimate Julio Franco.
   50. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 07:55 PM (#2218061)
there's no way a Met could hit a walkoff in Detroit.

Ah, but there is. Franco hits the homer, which curls just barely inside the foul pole. It is first ruled a foul ball by the umpire down the line, but Randolph pleads his case and gets him to ask for help. The first base ump (it's an opposite field shot, of course -- this is Julio Franco, after all) immediately tells him it was fair, and they get the call right.

The fans, outraged over the Mets taking the lead in the top of the 9th when the Tigers were one out away from the title, start throwing debris on the field. Some even storm the turf, and are removed and arrested. The Mets walk off for their own safety. They wait, and wait, but order cannot be restored. The game is called at that point, and the Mets are awarded the championship. The first road walk-off victory in baseball history.

Voila.

Americans would be watching Game 7 of the Cricket Finals tonight if Cornwallis had won.

19/10/1781 - Cornwallis surrenders at Yorktown at 2 PM; Revolutionary War ends. (Source: History News Network)
   54. Karl from NY Posted: October 19, 2006 at 08:20 PM (#2218079)
Nah. Yorktown was a day game. We'd all be watching on Warday.
   55. strong silence Posted: October 19, 2006 at 08:23 PM (#2218084)
I don't get it. Warday?
   56. . . . . . . Posted: October 19, 2006 at 08:31 PM (#2218090)
A hymm to the follies of Ollie Perez,
A much better pitcher than Rob Neyer says,
Acknowledging, yes, that he's lacking control
His fastballs can lurch and his curveballs can roll
But gentlemen, Ollie Perez is left-handed!
And ungodly heat to his left-arm was granted.
If you think that Edmonds is hitting this feller,
Then buy Brooklyn Bridge and let me be the seller.
Rolen can't lift his bat much past his waist
And here's the first high-fastball pitcher he's faced.
Christopher Duncan cannot hit a lefty,
Meaning that Pujols is all that is left, he
and Eckstein, perhaps, but that's 2 against 9,
Mets fans, I'm sure that your team will be fine.
   57. Karl from NY Posted: October 19, 2006 at 08:31 PM (#2218091)
As in Gameday, which we all use from the office to follow day games.

What happened Jeremy?

Bus was delayed at Philly by an hour. So we got to Harrisburg an hour later than we were supposed to. The bus that went from Harrisburg to State College that we had to change to left before we got there. So I had to wait for the next bus to State College. Which left at 3:20. So I was in ####### Harrisburg for about 3 and a half hours today.

   65. Urban Faber Posted: October 19, 2006 at 09:58 PM (#2218183)
Thought I saw lineups on ESPN News ... Wilson in left, Encarnacion cleanup, Molina 7th, Belliard 8th. Mets sticking with the same order.
   66. BTF's left-wing cheering section (formerly_dp) Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:09 PM (#2218197)
I was at the Goldfrapp show last night (my GF's birthday present) and was getting text messages with the score for the whole game. The show ended in the 8th. I only saw the 1st 1/2 inning live, and Maine looked horrible. There were a few Mets fans at the show relaying the scores back and forth. Goldfrapp was great BTW, but I was too distracted by the game to really appreciate it, even when the barely-clothed dancers trotted out. Heard Wgner almost blow it on the cab ride home. Cohen rocks at radio. Loved having him do TV, but he was born to do radio. Tonight I'm gonna try to synch the radio and TV- anyone had luck with this?
   67. Greg Franklin Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:18 PM (#2218212)
Lineups via FoxSports. Faber heard right:

STL
1. D Eckstein, SS .292 2 23 7
2. P Wilson, LF .243 8 17 6
3. A Pujols, 1B .331 49 137 7
4. J Encarnacion, RF .278 19 79 6
5. J Edmonds, CF .257 19 70 4
6. S Rolen, 3B .296 22 95 7
7. Y Molina, C .216 6 49 1
8. R Belliard, 2B .237 5 23 0
9. J Suppan, P .218 0 6 0

NYM
1. J Reyes, SS .300 19 81 64
2. P Lo Duca, C .318 5 49 3
3. C Beltran, CF .275 41 116 18
4. C Delgado, 1B .265 38 114 0
5. D Wright, 3B .311 26 116 20
6. S Green, RF .257 4 15 0
7. J Valentin, 2B .271 18 62 6
8. E Chavez, LF .306 4 42 12
9. O Perez, P .077 0 0 0

I am disappointed Jim Rome used "Cousin Oliver" to refer to O Perez today. I thought I had invented the ref, but it was just too obvious for someone else not to stumble upon it.

My lean is to the Mets. I don't root for either team, so in such a situation I want the better club to win, for the chance to see better baseball in the World Series. The Mets are the better club.
   68. Bob Koo Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:22 PM (#2218216)
My feeling is this: As long as Perez doesn't put us into a hole, we'll win tonight.
   69. BTF's left-wing cheering section (formerly_dp) Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:24 PM (#2218218)
Someone should track the number of balls hit to RF vs LF in this series and see if the decision to keep playing Endy there instead of flopping him with Green has cost us runs. Putting him in LF might confuse him for an inning or two, but how much worse could he get?
   70. Urban Faber Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:25 PM (#2218220)
ESPN showed the last out of the 1968 Series ... McCarver fouling out to Freehan. What's great about that is 1) McCarver swung at the first pitch, down by three runs and 2) he didn't run hard down to first base. In fact he was still carrying his bat.
   71. Repoz Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:46 PM (#2218246)
So, So-So Taguchi ain't starting...this after Francesspool railed (in between scarfing six unsuspecting cardboardilly burgers in FAN's outer office) all freakin' day long how outside of Pujols...Taguchi is the Cards best hitter?!!?? (OPS+ of 79, holy yikeroonies!)...and how La Russa has got to find a spot to get his bat in the lineup!
   72. Greg Franklin Posted: October 19, 2006 at 10:59 PM (#2218255)
I thought Queens would have higher quality burgers than that, Repoz.

Anyway, So ain't starting but at least he ain't departing.
   73. AJMcCringleberry Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:00 PM (#2218257)
how outside of Pujols...Taguchi is the Cards best hitter

Taguchi's OPS is 3.750 in the postseason! Pujols who?
   74. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:36 PM (#2218289)
All right, I think I have a good omen. Today in my Constitutional Law class, I taught (among other cases) the only case in which the Supreme Court has ever upheld a state law which discriminates against out-of-state commerce under the Dormant Commerce Clause. That case? Maine v. Taylor. So Maine won last night, and today. My students noticed. It bodes well.
   75. Rob Base Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:37 PM (#2218292)
I think we need something more evocative of Ollie Perez. U.S. v. Schmuck? The "Sick Chicken" Cases? Hopefully not those "Slaughterhouse Cases".
   76. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:43 PM (#2218299)
Can everyone quit with the "Tigers will steamroll the NL winner" nonsense. I'm nervous about both teams (The Mets cause they're really good, tthe Cards because if that team makes a WS, why the hell couldn't they win it?). I'm just glad after tonite I'll know who to freak out about. I pick the Mets to win.
   77. Banta Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:43 PM (#2218300)
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty damn nervous right now.

Same here, Banta.

Can everyone quit with the "Tigers will steamroll the NL winner" nonsense.

I guess you didn't see post 1 ... :)

I'm pumped. First pitch in a half hour, or close to it.

Every time someone quotes William Carlos Williams without including the title of the poem, I kill a kitten.


Isn't that poem like Emily Dickinson's -- no real title, so the first line stands in as the title? Then I guess it depends on what publication is being referenced; "The Red Wheelbarrow" originally appeared in the book Spring & All (maybe the best poetry book of the century, in America anyway, in my opinion) without a title, just in between big blocks of insane quasi-theoretical prose. It wasn't a 'set alone' poem with proper title until the later, selected Williams.

The pure products of America go for the Cardinals.
   81. Rob Base Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:51 PM (#2218311)
The Tigers who were 35-38 after the ASB? Those unbeatable tigers?
   82. Old Matt Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:53 PM (#2218315)
Let's get it on.
   83. Sam M. Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:54 PM (#2218316)
I think we need something more evocative of Ollie Perez. U.S. v. Schmuck? The "Sick Chicken" Cases? Hopefully not those "Slaughterhouse Cases".

Oh, come on Base. The obvious choice is Katzenbach v. McClung. Think about it.
   84. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:56 PM (#2218317)
Yes the Detroit Tigers, Base. Rogers, Verlander, Guillen, Bonderman, Ordonez, Polanco, Monroe, Zumaya...
Maybe you'll meet soon.
   85. Rob Base Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:57 PM (#2218318)
Not bad, Sam.
   86. Robert in Manhattan Beach Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:57 PM (#2218319)
No Spiezio? Hmmmm.
   87. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 19, 2006 at 11:59 PM (#2218322)
So I just dropped Francois Beauchemin in my hockey pool, and picked up Matt Carle. What do you guys think?
   88. Rob Base Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:00 AM (#2218324)

2 weeks ago, I'd have said better them than Jeter, Giambi, A-Rod, Big Hurt, Zito, Harden, Swisher, or Morneau, Mauer, Santana. They've won 7 games since then. Big sh%t.
   89. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:02 AM (#2218326)
Well, I'm here.

This has to be Wright's game. We need him to step up big time today.
   90. Rob Base Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:02 AM (#2218327)
Ok, Beltran. Time not to be such a vagina.
   91. Sam M. Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2218330)

I hope so.

No Tigers' trash talking, Rob. They're there. We're not. What gives us any place to talk?
   92. Paul S Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:04 AM (#2218332)
Matt Carle is awesome, and Beauchemim was pushed out by Pronger's arrival. Good move. Also think of Kurtis Foster in Minny.

The use of Miss Sarajevo in the opening was also awesome.
   93. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:06 AM (#2218334)
Yeah, winning 7 straight playoff games... no big deal at all. Not like it's what every team plays for or anything.
   94. John (You Can Call Me Grandma) Murphy Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:08 AM (#2218338)
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty damn nervous right now.

Know the feeling, dude.
   95. Rob Base Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:09 AM (#2218339)
Nobody said any of all of that, Walewander.
   96. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:09 AM (#2218340)
Thanks Paul. It was him or Ryan Whitney, and while Whitney will get some more ice time, I'm worried about his +/-...
   97. John (You Can Call Me Grandma) Murphy Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:10 AM (#2218342)
Guys, let's be on our best behavior tonight. Retardo is monitoring us. ;-)
   98. Banta Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:11 AM (#2218343)
Thank god they're going with the pinstripes again.
   99. Dan Broderick Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:11 AM (#2218344)
All strikes Ollie...
   100. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 20, 2006 at 12:13 AM (#2218345)
Base, I didn't really understand that post, but we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves. GAME 7!!!
Good to see NY rocking the Klassic Metz look. Worked last night.
