World Series Game 7 Thread: Rangers @ Cardinals, 5p

"Keep pulling! There's a soft chewy center somewhere in there!"

Matt Harrison (1-1, 5.02) vs. probably Chris Carpenter (3-0, 3.30).

Holy smokes! It's the first World Series Game 7 in SoSG history! I have to say, I was pulling for the Rangers, but after last night's stunning Game 6, I just want another incredible game no matter the outcome. Is that too much to ask before baseball goes into deep freeze?

Orel, there seems to be some kind of glitch in the heading for this post. "Game 7" keeps blinking in and out. You should really look into that.

Steve Sax said...

Go Cardinals!

Spank Horst said...

^ I agree.

Josh S. said...

Go, crazy shit!

Spank Horst said...

You can't do that shit in a game 7 ,Kinsler.

Spank Horst said...

Boooooooooooo!

Dusty Baker said...

Hate the Shards, Vinny!

ps- Fuck the Cards!

Josh S. said...

Joe Buck just rubbed it in to MLASC.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What did Joe Buck do?

Dusty Baker said...

2-0 already, assholez!!!!

Josh S. said...

Berkman's beard looks infected.

Dusty Baker said...

^Mentioned FRINGE

Josh S. said...

@MLASC

He brought up they they're preempting Fringe.

Josh S. said...

Yeah, just walk everybody. Why not?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ah, whatever. There's still Chuck.

Josh S. said...

DAMMIT

Josh S. said...

Throw strikes, idjit.

Dusty Baker said...

One of the last DAMMITs of the year, alas.

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Rangers cannot hold a two-run lead to save their asses.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU CARDINALS DO NOT RUIN MY LIFE!!!!

Josh S. said...

Uribe for Freese, straight up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Uh oh. It's a commercial for that guy Sax wants to murder with an ax.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

OH NO! HE'S USING GOOGLE! HEEEE'S UUUUSING GOOOOOGLE!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WHAT?!?! IT'S AN AD FOR GOOGLE?!?! WHEN WILL IT STOP!?!?! WHEEEEEEN WIIIIILL IIIIIIIIIIT STOOOOOOOOOOOP!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Josh S. said...

Saxe murder?

Dusty Baker said...

You'd think Google wouldn't have to advertise, no? Like, who the hell doesn't a) know about the company and b) use their services?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can totally understand why Sax wants that guy buried in a shallow grave outside the Jersey Turnpike. What an asshole. Imagine, using Google to learn about a sport you don't follow. Where does he get the fucking the nerve, the fucking balls to do something like that?

Josh S. said...

I've used Bing since I was 11. I would like to sample a new browsing product. Perhaps this one that advertises during my baseball show will meet my needs.

Josh S. said...

THE BALL DIDN'T COME OUT OF HIS GLOVE. IT MISSED IT ENTIRELY.

Dusty Baker said...

Spanky will use his Apple II on AOL to switch from Lycos searching capability to this whole new "Google" thing.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I use gigablast.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's all discuss this baseball game on The Well.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What makes you think I haven't already, Dusty?

Spank Horst said...

Maybe i'll be able to watch a fucking game now.

Spank Horst said...

oh shit. tied score.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

ALLEN CRAIG FOR MVP

Dusty Baker said...

I'm gonna start cutting myself!!!

Dusty Baker said...

MDIL (getting me a beer): Uh-oh, you only have two of these left. Is that gonna last you tonight?

Dusty: [Homer Simpson groan] That's not even going to last me the next inning.

(cries)

Josh S. said...

Freese out? Unpossible!

Spank Horst said...

Good ol' MDIL. she's a trooper.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jim Edmonds? I thought that was Seth MacFarlane on 'roids.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Stupid bunts.

Fred's Brim said...

I have seen maybe an hour of this world series before tonight and I am watching tonight's with the sound off. If the Dodgers ever make it to the World Series in what is remaining of my lifetime, I will have to attend each game because I don't think I could watch the games on Fox

Dusty Baker said...

Cunning runts.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Fred's Brim said...

and hi, everybody. I've missed you and I've missed Dodger baseball

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Don't sweat it, Hamilton. It just means God wants you to fail.

Josh S. said...

God told him to foul out, just for shits and giggles.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I was sitting there watching last night's game and thinking that if there were actually a team I gave a shit about playing in the WS (e.g., Dodgers), I'm not sure how my body and mind could actually take it.

Dusty Baker said...

God hates you, Josh. And he wants you to start doing drugs again.

Josh S. said...

!TIMMAD

Josh S. said...

*starts doing drugs again*

Spank Horst said...

Oh,The National League won the All-Star Game. I get it now.

Josh S. said...

So, if Ron Washington knew how to fill out a lineup card, the Rangers would have won this at least a game ago.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's what happens when you take life lessons from Depeche Mode, Josh.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB, you and me both, brother. I was thinking the exact same thing. Seeing chumps like Freese, Jay, Theriot and Craig embarrassing a team like Texas, a team i don't give a hell about, is driving me crazy as it is. If it's us vs some cockbag team like Boston or the White Sox in the World Series in 5 years and they "Cardinaling" us in a game seven, I might not survive the ride

Fred's Brim said...

stupid beard. if it's a playoff beard, you aren't supposed to trim it, dick. If it's a regular, everyday beard, you look like a dick, dick

Josh S. said...

OW, MY SHIRT

Dusty Baker said...

And those are the Beard Truths, as spake by Fred's Brim. #Obey

Spank Horst said...

Wow. That was close.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I thought that was a strike.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's get that in infrared.

Josh S. said...

Oh yeah, CJ Wilson. That'll help.

Fred's Brim said...

CJ, you are dreamy but you suck

Josh S. said...

As soon as I hit submit.

Josh S. said...

CJ's market value just tanked.

Fred's Brim said...

Raffy is already on the 2012 60-day disabled list after that HBP

Dusty Baker said...

If Shards hang on, the last WS winners will be:

Shards
Gnats
Yank-mes
Phiwwies

So much hate, so little time.

Josh S. said...

Go back further Dust and you get Red Sox and Cards. Last winner I kinda sorta liked was the ChiSox.

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck you, Sklar Brothers, you unfunny bastards

Josh S. said...

The crazy thing is, the Rangers are probably good enough to keep coming back here and trying again until they get it right.

Fred's Brim said...

wash yer hair, CJ

Dusty Baker said...

I stopped bc I don't hate on Red Sox, so that was the natural break. One could conceivably argue that that Red Sox team was part of the modern, deplorable Red Sox Nation bit, not the lovable loser Red Sox team from a few years before that, though. Which would the give you:

Shards
Gnats
Yank-mes
Phiwwies
Red Sox
Shards


Everybody together now:

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

Have a beer, CJ

Josh S. said...

"Replay footage was not taken with Nikon camera."

No. Shit.

Fred's Brim said...

haahaha
I love the disclaimer.
"Replay footage was not taken using the Nikon 1 camera"
Stupid litigious world

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, wow, we have one more DAMMIT for the season.

Fred's Brim said...

CJ looks pouty

Fred's Brim said...

DAMMIT?!

Josh S. said...

They were definitely the "not particularly interesting" Red Sox.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

CJ Wilson whoulda started this bitch. Ron Wash is no sweet genius.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to need some of Wash's stash to get through the rest of this game.

Fred's Brim said...

haha that got guy got nutshotted!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

LaRussa pushing all the right buttons, making all the right calls. Blah blah blah

Fred's Brim said...

Hamilton and Washington will go on a Sheen-esque bender after losing their second-straight world series.

Dusty Baker said...

ha ha - i get it - there's a dr. pepper drink that is so manly that women can't drink it.

i weep for my soda of choice.

Fred's Brim said...

on a positive note, only an hour or so more of Brian Wilson

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

It will the the opposite of Winning; will be called Losing!

Spank Horst said...

Bring in Omar Daal.

Fred's Brim said...

yes, we've seen that sign before

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Arthur. I used to see him as a Rochester Red Wing when I was still in High School

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

And he was already 36?

Spank Horst said...

Toma!

Fred's Brim said...

Dotel kinda looks like Manny

Fred's Brim said...

Oh man, I saw the hair from a distance and I thought it was Karros!

MR.F said...

You're telling me the Cardinals are gonna win and there's no Fringe tonight?!?!?!

Fred's Brim said...

what is this world coming to??!!

Spank Horst said...

Nice hustle ,merknam. fuckman. whatevs.

Spank Horst said...

100!

Fred's Brim said...

I hope Adams is a Dodger at some point, even if it's just for a year, so I can get an Adams jersey

Fred's Brim said...

stupid ump
I hope he gets graded out of doing another world series

Fred's Brim said...

i like watching Puma do those slow motion dives back into first

Spank Horst said...

6-2 St. Louie

Dusty Baker said...

BRING THE HATE!

Fernie V said...

Joe buck really does suck.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, god dammit! I need this in my life!

Fred's Brim said...

stupid everything

Josh S. said...

@FB 7:44

I'm fairly screwed in that department.

Josh S. said...

Greatest pop out of this or any generation.

Spank Horst said...

BELTRE!

Fred's Brim said...

I don't think David Murphy is a real baseball player. He looks like an actor playing a baseball player. It kind of looks right, like he's studied for the part, but it's just a little off

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh at least you don't get somebody asking you everyday if you are "related to the president"

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

Spank Horst said...

Texas!

Spank Horst said...

Grit

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like this.

Fernie V said...

Congrats Mr. Furcal.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Octavio Dotel: One ring
Charles Barkley: None

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What do you mean there's no Game 8?

Dusty Baker said...

Dotel: One ring

LeBron: No rings

Dusty Baker said...

113 days, 8 hours, 13 minutes, 32 seconds until pitchers and catchers report.

Jason said...

Bright side: the Dodgers are now in first place.
