  • Go dodgers!!!

    The Dodgers won last night by a score of 5-3 against the Cardinals.

    The Cardinals and Dodgers broke the left-on-base mark by stranding 30 combined runners for a playoff record.

    The Dodgers used 5 pitchers from the bullpen for 5 1/3 innings of relief after Wolf got in some trouble early.

    Re: Go dodgers!!!

    The Dodgers won Game 2 after a strong 9th inning. Matt Holiday of the cards committed an error by attempting to field a ball with his testicles - that didn't work so well for him. Instead of the third out, the Dodgers got some hits and a a cards wild pitch to win the game.

    Next game is in STL at 3 PM on Saturday.

        The last I saw, the game is 3:07 CST.

        I do not know who the pitchers will be yet. Here is what I found on the probable pitchers:

        Scouting Report:
        Dodgers: Sometimes you get more than you pay for. Vicente Padilla came to the Dodgers almost for free and maybe all he needed was a change of scenery. Released by the Rangers with a reputation for being a bad apple, he's been a model citizen in the Dodgers clubhouse. More importantly, he went 4-0 with a 3.20 ERA in seven starts and finished up with 10 strikeouts in five innings against the Rockies. He throws hard, has a variety of pitches and attacks hitters with confidence. And despite a reputation as a head hunter, he didn't hit any opposing batters in 39 1/3 innings after hitting eight in 108 innings with Texas and 99 in his career.
        Cardinals: Pineiro is not coming into the playoffs on a roll. He hasn't been bad, at least not usually, but he hasn't been nearly as good over the past five weeks as he was earlier in the year. Pineiro allowed four or more runs in five of his final seven starts, as his walk rate regressed from microscopic to merely impressive. One benefit, however, of the Cardinals opening on the road is that Pineiro will pitch at home. He's been quite a bit more impressive at Busch Stadium than on the road.

          The Dodgers are on the verge of winning the series against the Cardinals....2 outs left with a 5-1 score. Phillies and Rockies have been postponed due to snow.

            No, no, no...

            An all LA (OC) World Series would be great. Dodgers / Angels in the World Series is a dream come true for me. Everyone knows the Angels have the Yankees number in the playoffs. They're about to eliminate the hated Red Sox and the Yankees are next.

            Go Angels!

              I'm still very surprised that the Dodgers beat the Cardinals nevermind sweeping them. In years past the Cardinals always seem to find a way to eliminate the Dodgers.

              The Phillies will be tough as they were last season. (Beat the Dodgers 4 games to 1) But again after seeing how they played the Cardinals I have high hopes.

              Dodgers vs Yankees (Joe Torre former Yankees manager)

              Dodgers vs Angels (The battle of L.A. and Mike Sciosca played the Dodgers)

              Interesting story lines either way.

              GO DODGERS!!!!

                Re: Go dodgers!!!

                Carlos Ruiz keyed a five-run fifth inning off Clayton Kershaw with a three-run homer and, after the Dodgers pulled to within a run, reliever George Sherrill allowed a three-run blast to Raul Ibanez in the eighth as the Dodgers absorbed an 8-6 loss in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Thursday night.
                I could not believe that Torre left in Kershaw all through the 5th inning. The 5th inning really cost us the game.

                    11TH HEAVEN: Wild Cards win World Series!
                    by sjacksonrules
                    BY JOE STRAUSS

                    ST. LOUIS
                    Anyone searching for an omen 27 days earlier needed only hear the first words broadcast in the Citizens Bank Ballpark press box after Roy Halladay threw the first pitch of the NL division series to Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal.

                    It was nothing more innocuous than the evening temperature: 64.

                    An indelible number in Cardinals lore received a companion Friday night at Busch Stadium when a team that thought itself listless, even underachieving in late August capped one of the most remarkable reversals in the game's history by defeating the Texas Rangers 6-2 in Game 7 of the World Series.

                    One night after becoming the first team to rally five times in a World Series game, the Cardinals used six innings of inspiration from starting pitcher Chris Carpenter, a first-inning double by Series MVP David Freese and a third-inning bolt by replacement left fielder Allen Craig to take the lead. A two-run fifth inning constructed without a hit provided a cushion that four relievers didn't need as the Cardinals ran out the 11th world championship in franchise history and the second in six seasons.
                    Nearly a half-century after the 64 Cardinals used a two-week rush to erase a 6-game deficit en route to a world championship over the New York Yankees, the 2011 version exploited the modern-day wild card to reach the postseason and bowl over three of the game's most powerful lineups.
                    A frustrating season that began to shirt after a July 27 and that gained momentum after an Aug. 25 clubhouse meeting ended when Craig strangled Rangers left fielder David Murphy's fly ball.
                    Moments after closer Jason Motte had entered the game to Eminem's Lose Yourself, the largest crowd in new Busch Stadium history (47,399) took the message to heart.
                    Carpenter became the first Cardinals starting pitcher to make three World Series starts in 26 years on the same night that Freese established a new postseason record with 22 RBI.
                    The Cardinals left behind a stunned AL champion that twice closed within one strike of winning the Series in Game 6 but never found a way to finish.
                    "This is one of the great runs in baseball history,' said chairman Bill DeWitt Jr.
                    "We play in a city like this where we have the best fans in the world. They come out every day. They allow us to do what we did this year," general manager John Mozeliak said.

                    Pujols injured in loss to Cubs
                    by RamsFan4ever
                    stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/gameday_recap.jsp?ymd=20060603&content_id=1486010&vkey=recap&fext=.jsp&c_id=stl

                    ST. LOUIS -- Aramis Ramirez's grand slam keyed a five-run fourth inning as the Cardinals were drilled by the Cubs, 8-5, at Busch Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
                    A single and two errors loaded the bases for Ramirez, and the slugging third baseman tattooed a Mark Mulder offering 397 feet to right-center field to erase a 1-0 Cardinals lead. Three more singles and another error made it 5-1 before Mulder regained control of the inning, and a frame later, Phil Nevin added a two-run homer for Chicago.

                    St. Louis has dropped the first two games of its weekend series against Chicago, guaranteeing its first series loss at new Busch Stadium since the facility opened. Perhaps even harder to swallow, the Redbirds are 2-6 against the Cubs on the year, their worst record against any opponent.

                    Adding injury to insult, Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols left the game in the third inning with a strained right oblique muscle. It's unclear how long the Majors' home run leader will be out -- the club listed his status as "undetermined."

                    Yadier Molina had an RBI double for the Cardinals, and Mulder and David Eckstein each drove in a run with a single.

                    I hope Albert Pujols gets better. This a major loss for the St. Louis Cardinals.

                    At least we're not the Cardinals
                    by AvengerRam_old
                    When all else fails... there are the Cardinals to make us feel better.

                    Can you imagine what Rams fans would be saying today if the team had lost to the Seahawks in the manner that the Cardinals lost yesterday?

                    I think this board would spontaneously combust.

                    [Cardinals] Cards feeling defeated
                    by DJRamFan
                    4-9 record takes its toll on Green

                    Tim Tyers
                    The Arizona Republic
                    Dec. 14, 2004 12:00 AM

                    The demeanor of Cardinals coach Dennis Green on Monday was that of a man ready to cut loose with a refrain from an old country song: "You ripped my heart out and stomped that sucker flat."

                    The man who predicted a winning season and possible playoff berth upon his arrival had nothing good to say about his four-win team, or the way the season has transpired during his first season with the Cardinals.

                    San Francisco, with only two wins, is considered the worst team in pro football. But both of its wins have come against the Cardinals, including Sunday's 31-28 win in overtime, so where does that leave the Cardinals? advertisement




                    Emmitt Smith, the NFL's career rushing leader, said after Sunday's loss that the team is making elementary mistakes and insinuated that some of the problem is coaching.

                    "You know," Green said, "everybody has their own opinion. I will reserve mine."

                    To his credit, Green didn't dodge the issue when asked if he was worried about losing the attention of his team.

                    "Absolutely," he said. "You worry about losing everybody. I don't think (owner) Mr. Bill Bidwill is very happy right now. I don't think he counted on hiring a new coach and having the new coach be 4-9. It's everybody. I don't think the fans counted on being 4-9. I know I didn't count on being 4-9 . . .

                    "There is a chance to lose everybody when you get into a situation where you are not winning . . . "

                    Green took on a huge task when he came to Arizona in January to rebuild the franchise. Yet, Sunday's loss guaranteed the Cardinals their 15th losing season in the past 17 years. The question now is, how much progress has been made?

                    "I would hope to say a lot of things are better, but you know . . . sometimes we are in a bottom line business. In fact, most of the time we are.

                    "We only had 35,000 people there (Sunday). That's not a very big crowd, not a lot of people for the fifth-largest city in America. That's not a lot of people who want to come and watch you play in your stadium."

                    In Sunday's game there were five major errors on special teams, the offense didn't report for duty until the second half and Arizona's gambling defense was once again porous against the run. Nondescript Maurice Hicks, an undrafted free agent, not only became the eighth rusher to top 100 yards against Arizona, but his 139 yards came within 5 yards of matching his season total entering the game.

                    Green said the Cardinals are not physical enough at the point of attack against the run. They've tried to offset that with blitzes, but sometimes the formation takes away the blitz and the lack of physicality...
