they cards will go deep into the post season if not all the way . they have a very good system over there from top to bottom and st Louis is rich in baseball history and great fan support. not a cards fan but I have always been impressed with their consistency being in a small market. they are the Yankees of the national league and I was a big fan of ozzie smith back in the day . I think I liked the old bush stadium better though.

That has been the case for many years, but is no assurance that they will win 7 of the next 13 games this month against the best opponents in baseball.

I am becoming disheartened when realizing my Bucs will likely be facing Wacha 6x/year for the foreseeable future.

That Boston-Detroit game 2 was amazing.

Tiger pitcher Scherzer had a no hitter going into the 6th inning. After 5 2/3 innings of no hit baseball he gave up two hits and one run to Boston. Scherzer went on to get Boston out without a hit in the 7th inning. After 108 pitches he was lifted by Leyland and didn't take the mound for the now-infamous bottom of the 8th inning.

By this time, end of 7 innings, the score was 5-1 Tigers, but the bottom dropped out for Detroit in the bottom of the 8th. Four Detroit relief pitchers allowed Boston to load the bases and score 4 runs to tie the game. The coup de grace was Ortiz' grand slam to tie the game at 5-5. The Detroit pitcher who served up that gopher ball was none other than Juaquin Benoit, the same pitcher who blew the no-hitter in the 9th inning of game one. Ouch. Tiger bullpen has been nothing short of dreadful in these two games.

The Tiger's 5th reliever (Porcello) gave up a leadoff single to Jonny Gomes who advanced to 2nd on a bad throw from shortstop Iglesias. Gomes went to third on a wild pitch. After almost fouling out to first (fan interference?) Saltalamacchia hit a walk off single to score Boston's winning run in the bottom of the 9th inning. Just about anytime you put the leadoff hitter on base in the bottom of the 9th against Boston (or the Yankees) it's an omen of bad things to come, and it did. A bad throw to first and a wild pitch turned a typical infield single into a man on 3rd with no outs.

IMO, Detroit beat itself last night equally as much as Boston beat them. Beating yourself seemed a theme in both Dodger losses so far in the NLCS.

ALCS is tied at 1-1 with game 3 Tuesday night in Detroit when Verlander will pitch for the Tigers.

Tonight, I'm looking forward to game 3 of the NLCS as the Cardinals play the Dodgers in Chavez Ravine with St Louis ahead 2-0 in the series. Will the Dodgers beat themselves again?

Default Jim Leyland Puzzler

Jim Leyland: Slam is on me
Quote:
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland told reporters Monday he regrets not telling Joaquin Benoit to pitch carefully to Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, whose eighth-inning grand slam Sunday night tied Game 2 at 5-5.
......

"I made a mistake that I take full responsibility for," Leyland said. "I should've reminded [Benoit] that we didn't want to Ortiz to beat us."
http://espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs/2013...e-2-grand-slam

Huh? If only Leyland had gone out to the mound and reminded Benoit that they didn't want Ortiz to beat them then he would not have surrendered the slam? Does that mean that Benoit knew this but forgot? Does it mean that Benoit thought that they did want Ortiz to beat them? Does it mean that Benoit was supposed to have walked Ortiz with the bases loaded? Does it mean that Benoit is the kind of pitcher who needs to be reminded that it is a bad idea to give up home runs when the bases are loaded?

If Leyland has the power to prevent home runs via reminders to his pitchers, shouldn't he be reminding them on every pitch?

This has the potential to be the last day of the 2013 season with multiple games on TV (Cards Dodgers game 5, Red Sox Tigers game 4). The next 2 days will all be single games: Thursday Tigers Red Sox game 5, Friday game 6 Cardinals Dodgers if necessary. Saturday could be the last day of 2013 with a double header if the Tigers win 1 of the next 2 games to force a game 6 and the Dodgers can go 7 games with the Cardinals.
