Dang, right after my rant in the Arod thread...

See you Wednesday in STL.

Let's go Giants... give the Angels some payback for that turd known as Poo-Holes.

Amazing catch by Crawford. Split second timing stopped 2 runs.
 
2012-10-22 08:51:56 PM
Crap, now I'm seeing why there wasn't an NLCS Game 7 thread...

Maybe if I say some anti-Yankee things some people will join?

Zito's bunt single RBI in game 5 was the best thing I've ever seen him do.

Not to stat too much of the obvious, but I just don't believe Buck when he says Game 7s are so great. I bet he'd much rather have called a clincher Friday night.

Not looking good for the Cards.

Someone needs to shove something in Erin Andrews' mouth so she can't talk. I will step up and take one for the team.

Load the bases with no outs. Good idea recards

What a farking tease, and then to go out like this.

I was a fan of McCarvers in the'80's,back then he seemed insightful..I was young..didn't

Uncle at the game..and he won't shut the f*ck up.
 
2012-10-22 09:21:12 PM
I can not believe how the Giants of Games 3 and 4 have turned it on since then. They barely looked deserving of sniffing the playoffs back then.
 
2012-10-22 09:21:13 PM
I will not be happy until it's 8-0 with 1 strike out left
 
2012-10-22 09:21:34 PM

There was an article about this last year around this time....... the basic premise was that McCarver used to be good but then he stopped thinking about the game, stopped bothering to learn about young and up coming players, and the game more or less passed him by. I'll try to find it......

I'm sure FOX pays a ton for these baseball games, but they really need to get rid of that digital advertising behind the batters. It makes each of them look like they're standing in front of a bad greenscreen when they come up to bat, which is really annoying to look at.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: coolio mack: I'm rooting for the Cards to come all the way back, only to lose in the bottom of the ninth after Matt Holliday takes a fly ball to the groin.

Ooh, as an A's fan, I like this!

/Matt Holliday; Bum


I'm a Padres fan and I still remember him not touching the plate in the one game playoff against Colorado for the division a few years back.

Kinda weird rooting for a division rival, but I respect the hell out of Bochy and think another run to the Series will give him some long needed due as a great manager.

Yeah, I'm rooting for him because he seems like a class act.

I really want to know what the Fox announcers are saying, but not enough to actually listen. FWIW, I'm listening to MLB At Bat, with the TV synced up to it. Highly recommended. It does mean there's a delay, but it's only a few seconds and it's worth it.

That was unintentional. If they were going to do something intentional it would have been in the middle of Holliday's back and you would have been able to make out the seams from the baseball in the mark it left.

I'd like to see what a lot of these commentators will say about this series tomorrow and how they will frame the Giants advancing, assuming this holds up. There's no easy, lazy story to take like the A-Rod angle with the Yankees. They have none of those big "stars" that will move the meter for them here.

I'm guessing they'll go with the amazing team story of the Giants and how they bonded together after losing Melky (thanks Joe for reminding me of this all night) and how they fought bravely with their backs against the wall. The Cardinals gave a game effort, but in the end couldn't overcome their loss of Pujols who signed a huge deal with the Angels last offseason. Largest deal in history behind A-Rods contract. Speaking of A-Rod, will he be traded this offseason?

Adter they won in 2010, several of the ESPN radio talkers called the title run a fluke, so I'd be surprised if they suddenly touted the Giants as a powerhouse team.

Is he seriously talking about the acoustics of stairwells?

Vectron: Kuip, Kruk and Jon, not mentioning Melky.


One of my great regrets about moving away from SF is that I can't get KNBR (the sports leader) here. I miss Kuip, Kruk and Jon. I used to listen to every game on the radio while I was working. And the only good thing about comcast was that every Giants game was on TV. MLB TV is a poor substitute as every regular season game is blacked out. shiat. I'd pay to see the games but I can't. shiat again.

I'll say this- I'm a Dodgers fan. And during my time living in SF I became a huge A's fan. I don't like the Giants. But one of my best friends passed away earlier this year and he lived and breathed Giants baseball. I found out about his death on my way to a Dodger/Giants game earlier this season... I had been trying to call him to wear him out over the match up. Wherever he is now in spirit, I'm glad for you my friend. Still an inning to go here and a ways to go after that.

Cancel game 4 of the Yankees Tigers game, but with the same threat, we play this one. Should have played them both, wusses.

Radar shows it stopping in about 5. MLB policy is to play on. No matter. The SF baseball gods are perverse.
 
2012-10-22 11:36:41 PM
If the ball comes anywhere near the plate they're calling it a strike.

that would be a pretty dumb theory since had the game started normally, CC would've been on normal rest and he's historically been poor after having an extra day

2012-10-22 11:41:30 PM
The radar shows the rain letting up in about 5 or 10 minutes. Then hard for 30 and then stopping for the night. Current MLB policy is to play on, given the constraints of safety.

That being said they ought to delay the game. The Giants will win anyway. Oh, two strikes, never mind.

Don't forget 2006, when they won their division on the strength of a whopping 83 wins. Like I said, I'm still bitter 6 years later. Between that, last year, and making it this year on a rule that literally never existed before, I was very much over them.

Don't beat yourself up : ) -- feel free to go back to the thread at the incident itself... I was the first guy to scream EAR HOLE THE NEXT DUDE!!!1111ONEITY! DIAF!!!11!

While at the time I would not have been upset if they drilled Molina, Holliday or any other Card, it took calm reflection a few minutes later to realize that the high road was much more respectable and better for the team, the series and the organization. In hindsight and after I could catch my breath, I can say, "take the high road!" At the time? I was shouting in the stands for blood just like everyone else. Another act on the part of the Giants that makes me proud to be a fan. ; )

Honestly didn't think we'd be facing the Tigers. Hope it's a great, clean, fantastic to watch series! Glad they have to come to SF, and that the boys don't have to get on a plane tonight!

Go Giants!

I think the wild card game is stupid. One season comes down to 1 game. Anyone can beat anyone in one game.

Your_Huckleberry: Drill him the first time they meet next year.


On the one hand, THIS.

On the other, his apology / my-bad expressions during the intro for the next game actually make me think, "it's done. No hard feelings." Take the high road.

But if they didn't throw at helmet after helmet after what Cousins did, with no reason whatsoever, to Posey, I think this is water under the bridge. I have no hard feelings for Holliday.

Of course, that's easy to say *now*. ; )
 
2012-10-23 12:28:24 AM
I've since seen a couple of photos of Holliday making "late slides" so I'm not entirely convinced that he was innocent. Now that it's been brought to national attention I'm guessing he will dial it back.

Britney Spear's Speculum: I think the wild card game is stupid.


I did -- and still kinda do -- hate the idea, until someone on Fark pointed out: Win the division over the course of the season, then. As it comes down to the wire, win out. If you can't do that, then maybe one last do-or-die game isn't out of line.

Still not entirely comfortable with the idea (baseball is, after all, about a long season not an instant's decision), but it made me a little less stabby about the idea.

Enjoy the rest of the post-season and save up your anger for what MLB is going to do with the schedule next year. They will be playing inter-league games EVERY DAY OF THE SEASON. The Giants will be playing the Yankees in late September while on a road trip to NYC to play the Mets.

It's somewhere between "enthusiastic, thoughtless mistake made in an instant of over-aggressiveness" and "desperate and/or dirty douchebag who fake-apologizes later," but, regardless, I'm proud of the Giants for taking the high road and just winning instead of retaliating.

Maybe I'm a schmuck ("maybe"?), but I kinda believe his pre-game acknowledgment/apology was sincere. Of course, maybe he got his ass kicked by Matheny or his teammates, but still....

We'll see what the attitude here at Mizzou is in the next few days. Perfect scenario: Jesus of Nazareth descends from heaven, says, "Be silent", and all the Cards fans' tongues turn to sand when they try and talk about their team.

Likely scenario: "You Royals and Cubs fans are just jealous."

red5ish: save up your anger for what MLB is going to do with the schedule next year.


Oh, don't worry: I have been angry about that for a while now. Stupid. Utterly, utterly stupid.

I've been grinding my teeth for a while. Gonna be interesting seeing what unintended consequences come out of that. It's going to be weirder (and way, way less fan-engaging than MLB management seems to imagine) than anyone expects, I bet. And less engaging / interesting / ratings enhancing.

I'm just glad it was a clean game, and no one won by hurting someone else. Thought it was going to be closer than it was, yet I was filled with stress and worry until that last out!

red5ish: SFSailor: Britney Spear's Speculum: I think the wild card game is stupid.

I did -- and still kinda do -- hate the idea, until someone on Fark pointed out: Win the division over the course of the season, then. As it comes down to the wire, win out. If you can't do that, then maybe one last do-or-die game isn't out of line.

Still not entirely comfortable with the idea (baseball is, after all, about a long season not an instant's decision), but it made me a little less stabby about the idea.

Enjoy the rest of the post-season and save up your anger for what MLB is going to do with the schedule next year. They will be playing inter-league games EVERY DAY OF THE SEASON. The Giants will be playing the Yankees in late September while on a road trip to NYC to play the Mets.


The current setup is honestly the best we have with 30 teams, both from a financial and competition standpoint. Unless we expand by two and go to 8 divisions (not happening anytime soon) or contract by two and go back to 4 (plain not happening), 6 divisions necessitates a wild card, and a fair schedule calls for perennial interleague. The past decade and a half with a single wild card has pretty effectively shown how much it weakened division championships, and thus the double wild card addressed that. I understand taking umbrage at it being a single game.. that's a fair complaint, but the alternative isn't really a solution (you'd be punishing the division winners with such a long delay as much as you're punishing the wild cards with extra games).

Howso? The only real issue is the timing (it can be considered "unfair" I suppose when a handful of teams are playing interleague down the stretch when the rest aren't, I suppose, but honestly that's a very minor issue). Teams are only adding 2-3 interleague games to their full schedule than present.

The Bestest: punishing the division winners with such a long delay


Interesting point... hadn't thought about it that way. And I like your point re: wildcard weakening division championships.

On superficial thought, I'd like to see a three-game two-team wild-card, as baseball is about a long grind, not a single game... but you make an excellent point.

Hmmm. Thanks for making me think about my opinion: I appreciate it. What would your solution be?

Harold Reynolds on MLB Network is claiming drilling Holliday was intentional, now. The radio guys explained it as wanting a high pitch that got away from Cain (and Posey's glove location seems to support that, unless it was all a con). Perhaps we'll never know, but drilling him there makes little sense and I'd rather see it as a mistake. Maybe I'm wrong and deluded.

I'm clearly not as well informed, nor thoughtful, about it as you are (and I've had a few celebratory vodaks, so I'm not long for fark..... wheee! go Giants!), but it struck me as creating false "rivalries" that aren't, and generally creating the possibility of unbalancing schedules (that is, unless everyone plays everyone else the same number of times, strong teams that play weak teams/divisions more frequently will benefit, it seems). But, as fair background, I think inter-league play at all is stupid.*

Then again, I may be old, stodgy, and may, in fact, have a drawer full of belt-onions. ; )

/ * To be even more fair, I also think DH is stupid, but I lack the energy and focus to make that argument this evening.

Wait: Seriously, are the Cardinals biatching that Pence'shiat was illegal? Like he did it on purpose, rather than his bat exploding? Weeeeak.
 
2012-10-23 01:00:45 AM
Heh. Filterp0wn3d.

Biatching that Pence's bat hit the ball multiple times is -ridiculous-. And I'd argue that if it meant the Giants were warming up their hot tubs for a long winter.

Personally, I wouldn't mind a best-of-3 wild card series only if the division series was made a best-of-7 like everything else.

Also, change September callups. If you absolutely must expand the rosters to 40 in September, then a 25-man roster still has to be declared for each series (with injury exceptions).

Ooooh. Ok, I hadn't really thought about a 7-game LDS (and don't really have a problem with the 5... 5 at NLDS and 7 at NLCS is ok with me, I think... but I could almost see 3/5/7/9? Baseball, after all, is about the grind not the instant), but you have my vote.

The Bestest for Commissioner!

(That is... if you dislike November baseball as irrational as I do... shorten Spring Training, or start it earlier or something, but baseball in November seems... wrong. As much as I might root for the Giants over the Rockies, for example, a chance of snow seems... wrong.)

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: SFSailor: xdedd: And Cain got payback on Holliday for sliding into Scutaro. Suck it Holliday!

The radio boys (who, of course, could be misleading us all) were fairly solid on the "high, inside pitch that got away from him" read on that, not intentional-drilling... I hope that's the case, frankly.

Yeah, I saw you take the high road in another thread. You're a better man than I, SFSailor. I'd have liked to have seen him stick it in his ear. And I'm the worse for that.


I was actually hoping he'd throw right at his knee, simply terrible of me.

Also...

'Cain said he won't be timid about throwing inside to Holliday, but only as part of plan to get him out. "If one gets away, one gets away."

Actually, balancing the schedule is the whole idea behind the move.
Right now with a 6 team NL Central and 4 team AL West, there's all sorts of nuttiness. Plus you had the "unfair" aspects of, for example, the Yankees and Mets guaranteed 6 games against each other every year regardless of what the rotation of other interleague games were (like, the Yankees would play the Mets for 6 games every year, but only play the Braves every other year). The new schedule is meant to make opponent distribution more even all around.
Now, is the new schedule perfect? Not in the slightest. For one thing, the Yankees-Mets thing (and other scenarios like it, like White Sox-Cubs, etc) is still there, but this has been reduced to 4 games a year (2 and 2), and overall it's a step in the right direction.

Wait: Seriously, are the Cardinals biatching that Pence'shiat was illegal? Like he did it on purpose, rather than his bat exploding? Weeeeak.

Oh is THAT what McCarver was going on about? I thought he had just wandered off into another senile non sequitur.

xdedd: 'Cain said he won't be timid about throwing inside to Holliday, but only as part of plan to get him out. "If one gets away, one gets away."


I am *well* aware that it is selective perception on my part, but I heard that interview and really bought it as honest: "I'm'a pitch inside, and if I lose one too far inside and it hits someone, so be it" rather than "I'm'a drill someone, but I'll claim I missed too far inside." I know the national media (Schilling, iirc, in particular) took it as "he's full of crap and gonna drill him" but I don't t think that was the intent.

More generally, I'm glad I'm not a Cards fan: I think there was a decision or two per game that I'd second-guess Matheny over... and I like Matheny. Better luck next year, sir.

I'm just glad it's not Nats v. Yanks. I'll take all the not-empty-winter-wilderness I can get!

Marine1: How does a ball hit a bat multiple times?


Seriously, that's what they're whining about. If you look at the super slow-mo replay, you'll see that the bat breaks and the ball hits it several times -- once at the hit, then gently once or twice more after the bat explodes -- while the bat is "not in separate pieces" or whatever the fark the MLB Network guy just said while claiming it should be illegal.

The interesting / impressive thing to me was this: Kozma broke in one direction based on the initial contact -- that's -incredible- to me -- they're making decisions / reactions based on the very first crack of the bat... but the bat broke and the ball hit it 2-3 times as it left (at a zillion frames per second) and changed the flight of the ball.

I'd like to think that I wouldn't be biatching about this if the roles were reversed, but I can't know that without an Alternate Universe Machine, of course.
 
2012-10-23 01:35:06 AM
While I am resigned to inter-league play and actually have no problem with the idea of wild card spots, I do think that the inter-league play EVERY DAY OF THE REGULAR SEASON will cause problems, particularly toward the end of the season when pennant races are very real events. The fact that the Giants will be playing the Yankees in a three game series September 20-22 seems even more random and poorly timed than the current mid-season match-ups. I don't like the expansion of inter-league play.

Also, for the record: I'm glad the score was so unbalanced -- if I were a Cards fan, I'd be mad about the rain and the condition of the field at the end. It's easy to say, now, that they have no reason to complain, but if it were a closer game, I wouldn't have wanted the Giants to win that way.

That said, the complaining about the Pence hit is *ridiculous*.

No... MLB Network keeps showing Lance Berkman whining like a biatch about the Pence hit and others moaning about the game, and MLBnetwork keeps touching on it, but it's nothing more than end-of-season, we-lost flailing, it seems.
