And guys he's not trolling. It's perfectly legitimate to think the Phillies are not the best team in the league and predict they lose 3-1 to the red hot Cardinals.

You're right. But to think that St Louis' rotation is even close to the Phillies, he's either trolling or being sarcastic.

I just really hope he's right.

If you haven't noticed, Halladay's given up more hits today than he's ever given up in an NLDS game.

Berkman, 3-run shot off the bat against Halladay. 3-0 Cardinals in the 1st.

OK, he's just being facetious.

No idea why they left Lohse in to face Raul Ibanez.

He just gave up a three run bomb to Howard, and nearly gave up another one to Victorino. Don't care what his pitch count may or may not have been. If your down one run with Roy Halladay rolling on the other side you can't be trying to cheat outs and I think that's exactly what they were trying to do.

8-3 now as well and that may or may not be it for Roy Halladay. At most I'd let him go the 8th and that's it.

Welp, Texas is in quite the hole.

BTW, is it normal for the Yankees to have 8:30 starts? Maybe it's because I'm from the west coast, but that seems awfully late.

Wow... what a horrific game this has been. It started with a few questionable calls by the umps and snowballed into a collapse. All I know is, we'd better take back the momentum in Game 3 with Price on the mound.

Spoke too soon. Fu Manchu just gave up a three run bomb to Longoria. 7-6 Rangers.

LOL... that's two games now where I've posted something negative about the Rays and something positive immediately happens. I'm like a reverse jinx, apparently, but I'll take it. B)

Nice camera work by TBS with the Yankees/Tigers game.

First they just switch over to the Rays/Rangers game right in the middle of the inning and I don't mean they did a picture in picutre, I mean they switched over to the game. Then they miss a great play by Swisher because they are busy showing a replay.

Welp... we lost, but all things considered, it could have been a lot worse, especially considering the 4th Inning from Hell. We at least made the game a lot closer later on, and I firmly believe the Rays still have a lot of momentum. Price (postseason: 1.25 career WHIP, 85 career FIP-, 2.38 career SIERA, 3.11 career tERA) is on the mound for Game 3... let's get a win at the Trop.

Anyway, congrats Bruschi, Rainmaker, and our other resident Rangers fans on Texas' first (and hopefully last) postseason victory this year!

Man the Yanks really opened it up against the Tigers. Awesome! Can't say I feel bad for them at all.

Not really, but when one network broadcasts 4 series, there has to be some leeway. Games were at 2, 5, and 830 on TBS, with Rays-Rangers at 7 on TNT.

I'll borrow a line from The Fast and the Furious:

"Winning's winning."

Playoffs aren't about style points, and Texas sure didn't earn any in my book. They've still yet to turn in a decent outing by a starter, something they routinely did in the regular season. I'm anxious to see them put it together like they did last month. However, though...

"Winning's winning."

Well maybe the TV networks are finally beginning to learn the lesson that it may not be the best idea to schedulue games on the east coast at 8PM this time of year, considering the amount of rain that's fallen in the past month and especially how much of it tends to come down at night. Then again I'm sure tomorrow's start time is nothing more than an abnormality.

I'm fairly certain that both the Tigers and Yankees only agreed to playing game one tonight on the condition that game two be played during the day. Anyone that lives in the northeast knows the area gets a ton of rain this time of year. I'm sure if you left it up to the teams every single game would have no later then a 5PM start time.

I love those Cowboy & Bronco helmet & name plate pics on your signature. Where pray tell can I find those for all teams?

I remember when TBS made the Cubs start at like 8:47 Central or something to accommodate the Dodgers. Dumb.
