Gutsy indeed, but then again, he couldn't lose, A-Rod is 1-12 in the post season thus far, lucky for him, it paid off. Great, great finale, good for Raul, So Cool.

Great Oakland comeback in the 9th!

Jose Valverde isn't good
Yeah, but he can spit REAL FAR.

Let's Go Oakland!

So did I. The Yankees can send up 9 lefties in a row who can't do anything but reach the short RF porch in Yankee Stadium (which is why they were released elsewhere), and sooner or later, one of them will.

For anybody interested in totally trivial trivia, the Cardinals in the first three have outscored the Nationals almost exactly by the ratio of Pi, or 22/7. Pi and 22/7 differ from each other by 0.0004%

Just a thought. When Crisp got the game-winning hit last night, after reaching first, he turned to his left, into the infield, to watch the play at the plate and start celebrating. If the CF had thrown behind him, he could have been tagged out, negating the winning run if he was tagged before the run scored.

Crisp had a view of the ball being mishandled in rightfield, he knew that there was no threat to get either of the runners, there was no throw.

In that case, it woldn't have happened, but I was watching Crisp and he did turn into the field for the cellebration. An outfielder could be conscious of that, and eventually nail somebody who thought he had a walk off him.

As a little league coach, I used to have my catcher throw to first after a walk. When a little leaguer gets a walk, the fist thing he does when he gets to first is to step off the bag with one foot, and back on with the other, to change feet on the base. I caught a kid doing that once, but the umpire refused to call him out and got pist at me for poor sportsmanship.

After Jeter got the tag-out the other night when he kicked the runners foot off the bag, i was waiting for the Orioles to body block somebody off a base and tag him and see what happens.

My poor Reds choked big time. They killed themselves with blown chances and errors. Giants hit when they needed too.

I am so damn angry right now.

In 2010 the Giants clinched each post season step on the road, Division Series in Atlanta, League Championship in Philadelphia, and WS title in Arlington. Now they have clinched in Cincinnati.

The pitchers are mostly the same, but the position players are nearly all different. In 2010 it was C-Posey, 1b-Huff, 2b-Sanchez, SS-Renteria, 3b-Uribe, LF-Burrel, CF-Torres, RF-Ross. Only catcher is the same in 2012.

This was the first time that an NL team has come back from being two down in a division series. It has been done several times in the AL.

From the gloom of the weekend games, the Bay Area is now guaranteed the season will last at least another four games...eight if the A's can come back as well.

Ooop....just as I'm typing the Nationals got a walk off home run.
