Wild Card Game Thread: Oct 5, 2012

Sorry guys, I'm on my iPad so this is going to be limited.

First up comes the game the Dodgers were hoping to attend: Cards at Braves. Could this be Chipper's last stand?

Second comes Orioles @ Rangers. Orioles have a handful of lucky beans while the Rangers are pissed they choked at season's end. Here we go.

My picks for known matchups:

Braves
Orioles
Reds
Athletics

The O's pick is looking grim. Joe Saunders? Yeesh.

Dusty Baker said...

My pick is for the Barves to be leading 2-0 in the bottom of the second.

Hideo Nomo said...

Nosty? Is that you?

Spank said...

Top of the turd.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is Barves Crounty!

Hideo Nomo said...

Aw, shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Sonofallthatisrightwiththeworld!

Fuckin' Mothballs.

Dusty Baker said...

Mothballs mixed with Night Train and Scotch Tape extract is what sent three Flaming Menudos band members into rehab at the same time back in 1983. They missed the whole Granada invasion thing.

Hideo Nomo said...

I thought they were rehabbing IN Grenada, hence the invasion.

Dusty Baker said...

Grenada has the world's richest mothball vein; hence, the "summer home."

Spank said...

*streaks*

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, I thought you said "steaks".

Dusty Baker said...

5-2 STL in top 7th. Not looking good for Barves.

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK. Now I'm even more pissed we didn't get in.

Hideo Nomo said...

SO LONG, LARRY.

Dusty Baker said...

6-3 but Barves rally killed to end the 7th.

Dusty Baker said...

The Shards' lead was a rally-killer for my daytime drinking, too. I need to get back in the game.

Dusty Baker said...

6-3 bottom 8th. Barves one-out rally cooking. Bases loaded w only one out. Excuse me - rancho ardiendo.

Ranchos are ardiendoed bc Shards let a ball drop in short LF on a mixup. High drama.

Dusty Baker said...

Or not.

Steve Sax said...

Brave comeback?

Dusty Baker said...

Infield fly rule was apparently called. That ball was way the fuck into the OF. That is a very different definition of infield than I know of.

Dusty Baker said...

Infield fly rule called very late, too, right before the ball even dropped.

Barves fans showering the filed with empty Bud Light cans. Right on!

Dusty Baker said...

This is a fucking joke of a call. It's NFL replacement ref shit all over again.

QuadSevens said...

Gift call for Larry.

QuadSevens said...

Freeman with a 2 out double in the bottom of the ninth.

QuadSevens said...

And Uggla grounds out to end it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Why couldn't we have been the team that all of Atlanta is pissed at?

QuadSevens said...

Saunders starting off strong: walking the lead off guy.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is a much better game.

Spank said...

*steaks*

Fred's Brim said...

take your pick:
1. finish strong and nearly make the playoffs after an up and down season
2. Lose 7 of nine to drop into the wildcard slot and lose to a team that wears black and orange with an old asshole for an owner

Fred's Brim said...

mmm steaks

Fred's Brim said...

lots of out-of-the-woodwork Orioles fans at the game

I am sure the same phony cnuts will be at the bar on Sunday wearing their RG III jerseys

Fred's Brim said...

good job, Os.
I hope your owner chokes on his crab legs

Hideo Nomo said...

Pretty sure Braves have the worst scenario, FB.

2011: Choke away a solid WC lead and get eliminated on the last day.
2012: Maintain a solid 6+ game lead in the WC for what would have been a surefire trip to the NLDS under the old system, lose a one game playoff to an inferior team thanks to mental fuckups and shitty officiating.
