Final LDS Game Thread: Elimination Time

BAL Jason Hammel vs. NYY CC Sabathia, 2p

STL Adam Wainwright vs. WAS Gio Gonzalez, 5.30p

Four enter the ring, two will leave. Sounds a lot like a DelinO post! But it is neat to see all four of these LDS series get pushed to the pivotal Game 5. More revenue for MLB! Whoo hoo!

In other news, West Virginia loves A-Rod.

Let's go, O's!

National Anthem is being played for Orioles-Yankees and the seats at Yankee Stadium are probably only 25-30 percent filled.

Orel said...

Hitless, scoreless after three.

Orel said...

Dodges fire Dave Hansen. Shocking.

Franklin Stubbs said...

1-0 Yanks. My perfecta of playoff misery is still possible.

Franklin Stubbs said...

CC is dealing.

Orel said...

Yanks 2-0 in the 6th. Ugh.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm being punished, I can tell.

QuadSevens said...

How should we feel if Mickey Hatcher becomes the new hitting coach?

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm not particularly comfortable with that. Our lineup would be tough to match with his approach.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Of course, if he could impart the knowledge of how to successfully hit-and-run, that would be useful.

Franklin Stubbs said...

two on, one out, down three. This feels like last licks for the O's

Franklin Stubbs said...

Lew Ford(!) singles home Wieters. Make that 3-1.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Rancho Ardiendo, still one out.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*clenches*

Franklin Stubbs said...

What are the Yanks saving the 'pen for?

Franklin Stubbs said...

2 down. Come on, Balteemore.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck

Orel said...

Looks like it's going to be Yanks-Tigers. No underdogs in the AL.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'd be worried if I were the Nats. My rooting interest appears to be the kiss of death.

Orel said...

boooooooooo

Orel said...

urns

Steve Sax said...

Fuck. I wanted the Os

Steve Sax said...

Urns

Hideo Nomo said...

S'up. Dead Nomo here.

Cliff Beefpile said...

It's going to be Yankees-Giants, because there is no God.

Fuck you, baseball, for making me root for asshole teams like the Phillies, Cardinals, Reds, etc. for the last 24 playoff years!

Hideo Nomo said...

NATITUDE!

Orel said...

"It ain't over 'til it's over."

PLATITUDE!

Hideo Nomo said...

Shit.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*clenches*

Hideo Nomo said...

7 or 8 insurance runs please.

Orel said...

Uh oh. Cards threatening against Edwin Jackson.

Orel said...

6-4 Nats, top 7

Orel said...

6-5 Nats, top 8. Keep clenchin'!

Franklin Stubbs said...

DON'T BLOW IT, ASSHOLES!

Franklin Stubbs said...

^that was seredipitous timing.

Orel said...

SoCA

Franklin Stubbs said...

GEICO!

Orel said...

Geico! 7-5 Nats!

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

Here we go to the ninth!

Orel said...

*reclenches*

Cliff Beefpile said...

I don't know. I hate the Shards, but can anyone really picture the Expos getting to the World Series. At this point it's just keep the asshole VaGiants out of the WS.

Orel said...

Still clenching. Two on, two out, two-run lead.

Orel said...

Full count to David Freese. Oh man.

Orel said...

FA for the Cards!

Orel said...

Oh man. Tie game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Tie ball game. Well, shit.

Cliff Beefpile said...

D.C. teams always choke.

Orel said...

Nats vs. SF this year: 5-1
Cards vs. SF this year: 3-3

Orel said...

The Dodgers always say die.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fucking Central Division. All teams not named Cardinals are fuckin' worthless. Where was this comeback yesterday, assholes!

Orel said...

Well, congrats to the Cards.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Baseball hell, I am in you.

Orel said...

Storen is gassed.

Orel said...

Was gassed. Like five batters ago.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Go...Detroit?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Seriously, the universe is conspiring to piss me off.

Orel said...

Wow. That was an epic collapse.

Orel said...

No way the Giants can beat the Cards, right?

Orel said...

Save us, Bryce!

Franklin Stubbs said...

*slaps Orel*

How dare you speak those words!

Franklin Stubbs said...

For the previous comment, not Bryce.

Orel said...

Harper out swinging at the shoulder-high fastball.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Good eye, Harper. Dumb-ass.

Franklin Stubbs said...

USELESS! YOU ARE USELESS!

Orel said...

I was thinking of the Giants' 2010 season, Stubbs. Only so much magic to go around.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Easily the worst post-season in years, and that's saying something.

Cliff Beefpile said...

In all honesty, I don't see the Cards beating those who shall not be named. Pitching...is...good...


*VOMITS*

Franklin Stubbs said...

Still, you don't SAY it! That's just tempting fate to kick you square in the balls.

Orel said...

Reds almost did it. Cards can do it.

Orel said...

We've already been kicked in the balls by the Dodgers this season.

Orel said...

Wow. Just wow.

Franklin Stubbs said...

YOU SUCK!

SUCK!

Cliff Beefpile said...

"Hey, here's an idea, let's shut down our best pitcher for the remainder of the season despite the fact that we're going to the playoffs. That can't possibly go wrong, can it?!"

Hideo Nomo said...

WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED??!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, at least Jayson Werth can get busy combing the critters out of his beard.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Pete Kozma, a.k.a. Mr. Charisma!

Hideo Nomo said...

And then, there was no more baseball.

Orel said...

For 20 hours.

Hideo Nomo said...

Here's my conundrum: Every time I root against the Cards, they win. Now I want them to win. But I can't root against them, or I'll have to take two years of shit from Paul again.

Orel said...

See? Aren't we glad this happened to the Nats and not the Dodgers?

Cliff Beefpile said...

I would say, at least Angel fans must be pissed knowing the Cards are gonna get farther than Pujols, but they don't give a shit because they suck as fans.

Hideo Nomo said...

Has anyone checked to see if (our) Dusty's still alive?

Cliff Beefpile said...

I got invited to go back to San Francisco next weekend for a friend's party, not a chance in hell. Not tempting fate like that.

Cliff Beefpile said...

If he was still alive, he just died of hateHateHATE.

NicJ said...

Damn, now I have to root for the Cardinals.

karina said...

given the results, I'm truly considering that I should root for the Giants, so they don't win anymore

Orel said...

C'mon, you know you can't even pretend to root for the Giants!

Hideo Nomo said...

I really have no interest in watching anymore. I'll just hope the Giants lose and go from there.
