LCS OptiThread™: Oct. 9

  • NLCS Game 1: Cardinals @ Brewers, 1p
    Jaime Garcia (0-1, 3.86) vs. Zack Greinke (0-0, 7.20).
  • ALCS Game 2: Tigers @ Texas, 4:45p
    Max Scherzer (1-0, 1.23) vs. Derek Holland (1-0, 1.42).

It's the Philly killers versus the Snake wranglers, with Pujols & Co. taking on the Beer Plushies. Zack Greinke has provided the bulletin board material, while some are positioning this NL Central matchup as old school vs. new school. And stay tuned as the Rangers look to take another game, rain-aided or not, from the Tigers. Fight!

UPDATE: ALCS Game 2 has been postponed to tomorrow at 1 p.m.

I cried when OptiThread died in the original Transformers movie.

Orel said...

Is that the one with MegaThread and the DeceptiThreads?

Josh S. said...

ALCS Game 2 postponed to Monday. OptiThread downgraded to Thread.

Orel said...

What is the sound of a thread crying?

I really, really want to root for the Brewers but I dont know because Ron Roenicke was a coach for the despised Angels. Yuck!

Spank Horst said...

Ron Roenicke played for the Dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

Yo!

Josh S. said...

No fair. Cardinals shouldn't be allowed to defy the laws of physics.

MeanieBreanie said...

Ron Roenicke is a very nice guy and yes he played for the Dodgers.
Scioscia is also a very nice guy and played for the Dodgers. Be careful how you choose your hate. That being said, Let's go Rangers!

Dusty Baker said...

SUCK IT, SHARDS!

6-5 Beers on a groundrule double by Braun followed by 2-run HR by Princess.

Dusty Baker said...

Da Beers.

Dusty Baker said...

8-5 Beers with Greinke still in. Top 6th. Great game so far. If by great one means questionable pitching and defensive mistakes.

Josh S. said...

Yes. This is acceptable.

Orel said...

I'm glad the regular-season MVP votes are already in.

Orel said...

Great Sonic commercial! Now I want a hot dog. Or three.

Furcal's second hit of the day. When did he stop sucking?

Dusty Baker said...

Saito saiting.

Josh S. said...

"Herp derp. What's a hashtag?" Shut up, Smoltz.

Orel said...

Greinke leaves with eight runs of support. The Brewers are the anti-Dodgers.

Orel said...

Who did Saito play for last year?

Josh S. said...

Red Sox, no?

Orel said...

Al Pujols is the tying run.

Josh S. said...

Accidental base hit.

Orel said...

Really? (Googling furiously.)

Orel said...

Who knew Saito's played for four teams? LAD, BOS, ATL, MIL.

Orel said...

Does anyone high-five Pujols after a run-scoring GIDP?

Josh S. said...

Oh yeah, forgot about his Braves stint.

Orel said...

Good job, Sammy!

Orel said...

SO MANY DARLINGS

Orel said...

Nyjer!

Orel said...

Looks like the Tebow era is about to start in Denver.

Spank Horst said...

TEBOW!

Dusty Baker said...

Mt Bow Tie - Tim Tebow

Orel said...

Beerers win!

Glad the Brew Crew won, but would love to see the Falcons beat the cheese dicks.
