What a way to lose. Give up the game winning run on a wild pitch.

It probably would not have made a difference, but that K on Desmond in the 9th was BS.


There were a lot of calls that were bs. It seemed that the fs1 announcers stopped defending the officiating sometime in game 2.

I'm not saying the Nats should have won, as they played pretty poorly, but I am certain that the officiating played too much of a part in a tightly contested series.

That about sums up the Dodgers series as well, yeah they played like crap but cmon umps horrible ball/strike calls in the 9th. We already aren't hitting don't help them out any more.

It's looking like there might be a rain out for ALCS game 1. If that happens when do they play it?

Orioles extended J.J. Hardy for 3 years and $40 million. Huzzah!

Supposedly they are looking to lock up Cruz as well.

Lots of Baltimore players getting locked up lately.

I think I am missing something. Did an Oriole get arrested or something?

Sorry - I was trying to be funny with a Ravens joke.

Hey, did you know the Royals are almost unbeatable when they lead by 4+ runs and they are really good at manufacturing runs? They have barely mentioned that on the TBS telecast so I thought I'd mention it here.

Delmon Young is CLUTCH.

 

However, I think the O's are just fighting a team of destiny at this point, and I don't think they're going to win that battle.

I said earlier that if the Royals won, I would root for them in the WS.

Well, Fuck that. If they actually win I am an NL fan.

well royals probably only have this year to win a ws, especially with their offense doing so well, and carrying them in the playoffs. since their pitching, and bullpen are nothing to write home about.

I'm normally a Nats guy. My AL team is the Tigers, as I grew up cheering for them. I would be fine with the royals or Orioles winning, because right now I hate the Giants.

It's like we've flipped conferences to root for. Still hate the DH even though I'm pulling for the Royals right now lol.

Agree 100%. Its like the Giants don't win games, other teams lose them. The Giants are the luckiest team ever to win as much as they have with no talent.

Both Wade Davis and Greg Holland are two of the best relievers in baseball.

I just realized that in 2016 the Reds highest 4 salaries are going to be Votto, Bruce, Phillips and Bailey. Thats $63 million tied up into 3 players that will be well on their way to replacement level and 1 slightly above average pitcher. Cueto and Latos are likely to be traded this season since they won't be able to afford them in 2016.

 

I have no idea what they were thinking signing Bailey to that huge extension before signing Cueto or Latos first. Either one of them would have been more deserving of that contract. Hopefully one of them brings in a good haul next summer because this team's minor league system will need to produce a few stars to get this team competitive again.

As a Phillies fan, I would like to welcome you to Hell.

My cousin, a bandwagon Giants fan, is insisting that Wong failed to touch the plate following his HR. I only saw a mob of Cardinals at the plate, so I don't know what evidence he has. Would it even mean anything at this juncture?

No. The game is over and everyone is already in San Francisco.

Yeah, game is over....so does not matter. There is always a huge mob like that on a walk off, so the umps just have to do their best to see if they hit the plate...but they are not gonna call someone out unless it was blatantly obvious. Tell your cousin to calm down :)

Matheny better start having a quicker hook on Rosenthal. He has been very inconsistent even late in the regular season. I have no confidence going to the 9th with him on the mound...even with a 2 or 3 run lead...the guy just does not have it right now.

My cousin was a Padres fan for the first 35 years of his life. In 2010, he suddenly decided that he liked the Giants more... Hmm, I wonder what happened in 2010? Anyway, I love seeing him panic when his "beloved" Giants lose.

You really can't blame him. At a certain point the payroll limitations have to wear you down. The elimination of the international market as an equalizer when they miss on draft picks had to really wear him down.

When was the last time a team was down 3-0 and came back to win a playoff best-of-7 series? I'm trying to hold onto some hope here. LOL.

 

I'm glad to see Delmon is in the lineup tonight, though it means that Cruz is in the outfield. :shock:

2004 Red Sox vs Yankees. That's the only time.

 

KC might end up like the 2007 Rockies: win a play-in game, sweep the LDS and LCS, and then get swept in the WS because they had such a long layoff.

But that would mean that the Giants would win, or even worse the Cardinals ( :puke: ).

The Royals did their job, so now all the Cardinals need to do is comeback so we can have a Show - Me Series 2! :whee:
