Go Tigers!

GIANTS 9, CARDINALS 0

Since 1988, every other team the NL West has at least made an appearance in the World Series. The Diamondbacks won it in 2001, and thanks to the Cardinals' astounding NLCS collapse this year, the Giants have made it to the World Series FOUR times — of course winning it in 2010. Just something to keep in mind whenever we wonder why Dodger Stadium always seems so empty.

This is a great moment to ponder, "wait till next year" and all of that saying's implications. Whatever happens in the world series, the Dodgers need to come out of the gate six months from now a healthy, cohesive, fire-breathing unit with a burning desire to destroy SF at every opportunity.

Two out of three years. Wow. Just...painful.

Hey, remember May?

Now would be a good time for the Dodgers to put out a press release about stadium renovations. Maybe sign a couple more Cubans.

Honestly, it makes me think "why can't we do that?"

And I also think "why can't we do that?"

My mantra for the next couple of weeks is "Please oh gracious Dodger in the Sky, when the bastards lose, please oh please let it be in front of their home crowd.

Also, I'm going to sob alot and see if that influences God to our side.

Looks like we're all on the roof, ready to jump.

I would put a new post up, but I really don't have anything appropriate to say about baseball right now.

QuadSevens said...

Stubbs, I'm sure you aren't the only one in this crowd feeling that way.

Even in these darkest of times, this still makes me laugh.

Who won the Assassin's Circle?

Orel, actually. Quad was the highest finishing reader.

I really do intend to do a post about that. I'm aiming for immediately after the WS Game 1 thread goes up, because I don't want to see that shit in my browser when I reload.
