This year is going to be such a waste if it ends up Yankees vs Giants. If the Nasty Nats lose it tonight, I think I'll just tune out the rest of the season.

Yankees had a ton of injuries this year but still managed to have the best record in the AL. Sabean actually made good moves during the trade deadline.

Touché, because a Giants v Yankees series would be quite compelling.

I'm a Yankee fan, and even I don't see them getting past Detroit. They always have trouble with the Tigers, and they can never hit Verlander for shit. I've been saying for years that you don't match up your ace with a pitcher as good as Verlander. I'd honestly prefer to have Hughes match up against Verlander (or even Kuroda). That way, if Verlander shits the bed, you have a good chance to win. But if he's on his A game, you weren't going to win anyway.

It does the Yankees no good for Sabathia to pitch 9 innings of 1 run ball if Verlander pitches a complete game shut out. And losing a Verlander pitched game 8-0 is no different. Sometimes you have to lose the battle to win the war, and the Yankees would be wise to bet on the rest of their staff being better than the rest of Detroit's. Just plan on Verlander's starts being losses and CC's starts being wins. And win the series in between.

The problem with starting CC in game 4 is that he would only start one game the entire series. Unless you bring him back on short rest for game 7 vs Verlander.

Yeah, wow...I didn't realize Game 1 was tomorrow already. That's freaking crazy. Good thing the Yanks don't have to travel, I guess. But yeah...I guess it almost forces you to put CC against Verlander in Game 3...although, I would consider holding him back and doing Game 4 and 7 depending on where the series sits at that point (ie. if the Yanks are up 2-0, I'd hold CC back and tell Hughes good luck in Game 3, lol). I just hope Pettitte can take care of business in Game 1. He's pitched great since coming back (but in my opinion, he always pitches better than people expect him to). I just hope he gets some damn run support this time.

Umps have been terrible this inning cardinals got away with a lot of strikes in the middle of the fucking strike zone that got called balls that even the commentary had to point out. Game should have been over by now. Cards showing they're the luckiest team in baseball.

Remember when closers could actually close.

Rangers
Nationals

Will Giants be added to this list?

"Wow. Why the hell was Storen trying so hard so many times to paint the corners? Throw him hard stuff and trust your defense up 2 and only needing one more strike twice."

comment couldn't have been any more true.

Yes, it's sad that the Cardinals lost their legendary manager, their superstar, were without their ace pretty much the whole year, and still found a way to make it back to the NLCS. Heartbreaking.

Shit, are the Cardinals going to do this two years in a row? The Cardinals beat the team with the best record in the MLB in the first round the last two years. I know your pain, Nationals fans, but I can't say I'm not happy the Nats lost, I really didn't want Werth to get another ring.

This has been such a weird season for the Cards... We lost pitching coach David Duncan and manager Tony La Russa when they retired during the off-season. They've been with the team since I was 11 years old, so it was really weird not seeing them there. Albert Pujols also decided to sign with the Angles which was very shocking for the entire city.

Mike Matheny becoming the new manager was kind of controversial, but I think he did a good job overall. To get in as the 2nd Wild Card team is kind of weird, but whatever works...

Onto the NLCS! :bouncy:

Can't believe I missed the end of the Cards game. Oh well, so can we now begin to endlessly chastise the Nationals for shelving Strasburg?

Especially after Werth said "I am motivated to get back quickly and see to it personally those people never walk down Broad Street in celebration again."

I was really hoping for the Orioles or Reds to win the World Series, now I'm hoping the Tigers win since the other 3 teams left are the 3 teams the eliminated the Phillies in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Meh, worries in last post came true with all the small market/new comer teams losing.

Don't really care for any of the remaining teams, so I won't be posting until spring training. Guess I hope the Tigers win it out of remaining teams, but pretty indifferent as long as the Yankees lose.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. It's football from now on until the Winter Meetings and Spring Training.

I'm feeling the same. I don't care for any of the teams and don't care about the Tigers either since they beat the A's. Time to watch more football, although the Raiders will probably continue to disappoint me.

With the Nats benching Strasburg arbitrarily and failing to capitalize on their unexpected success this year, I'm glad they lost and I hope that they wallow in mediocrity for the foreseeable future.

I'm not a big baseball fan, and I know that this has been talked to death but betting on future success at the cost of present success is so ridiculous in the world of professional sports that they deserve whatever hardships may befall them.

The Orioles are probably going to beat the Yankees and then face Detroit in the ALCS.

The Nationals will vanquish the tainted Cardinals and then dominate the Giants in the NLCS.

As another stab to the gut of Nationals fans, World Series ticket presale info was sent to season ticket holders at 7 am this morning. Oops.

That's horrible. The last thing Nats fans need as of right now is to be reminded of the complete collapse of their team.

Even if the Nationals had won, they shouldn't have sent out that e-mail yet. They could have at least waited until the Nationals had gotten a lead in the NLCS before trying to sell the tickets.

It turns out that it was actually MLB who sent the email, but it's still gotta suck for the fans.
