    I'm not a fan of the idea of having a playoff game for a wildcard spot in the first place, either. Just seems to me like it's there to make a couple extra million dollars from fans for no reason. Yeah I get it, Cards wouldn't be in the post-season now without it, but that's the point of the wild card... it's like a last chance spot. Now it's not even a last chance spot... just adds more stress not only on the teams but the fans also...

    In the future though if they're going to have a wild card playoff they really should make it the best of 3 games.

    (Not saying that's what you're saying, Richard, just making a comment in general. I get it that people are upset that they lost, but they did not lose due to one ump's bad call).
    Gotcha, I had just sat down to watch the game and two seconds later 'the call' happened.

    I didn't see the whole game, just that play.

    --------------------

    I really thing that OGPOs suck.

    Back in the 80's the Dodgers won their last three games of the season to force a one-game playoff which they lost.

    They won all three games with late inning homeruns and crashed and burned in the PO.

    A pal of mine had purchased tickets to the Friday game and concert tickets for Saturday.
    I had bought tickets to the Saturday game and when we compared notes, we knew we were going to have to pick the concert or game for Sat night.

    But, as the week end series grew closer? They changed the Saturday game time to 10 a.m. so they could get it on the Game of the Week broadcast.

    So, we went to the game on Friday night, got hammered, woke up on Saturday about 8, all hung over, went back to the stadium, saw the game, then went to the concert that night.

    I am not a huge baseball fan. Actually just started really watching it when the Giants won in 2010, then St Louis last year (I volunteer at Tony LaRussa's animal shelter) and now both Bay Area teams (Giants and A's) are in the playoffs. Both must win game 5 today. It's a crazy time in the Bay!!!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Cards only need to win one more to advance to round two... The Nationals may have had a stellar regular season, but now they're faltering in the post-season heat!! They're performing so poorly I almost feel sorry for them... But only for a second because I obviously want my Cards to win

    I was so excited last night watching my team win the game after losing most of the way. Good luck Cardinals in the NLCS, you deserve to be there after the miracle you pulled last night.

    My team is now up 2 games on the Yankees. Too bad the announcers on TBS seemed to forget there were 2 teams involved - it was all about New York

    I saw Jeter's fall last night, or rather very early this morning. That was so terrible

    I have been rooting for the Tigers to beat the Yankees but if they do get to the WS and play against the Cards, then I will root, of course for my Cardinals. Never liked the Yanks at all.
