    The playoffs are crazy. When the Cardinals won in 2006, Bob Nightengale from USA Today famously picked Detroit to win the World Series in three games...in a best of 7. Many times when you look at a roster it's easy to pick based on one lineup looks better than the other, but there are so many things to consider: Who's healthy and who's not? Is there a pitcher that is going to baffle the other team's lineup? Is one guy going to go unconscious for a week and half and hit .600 with 5 HRs? Which players or teams are going clench their butt cheeks harder when the game gets into the late innings?

    That's why they play the games.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Wow. The Cardinals just put up a 10 spot on the Braves in the top of the 1st.

    I do like the Cardinals more, but I do feel bad for fuddman and the Braves fans - got a nice little team there but the window to win will be small once the Marlins mature

    It's been fun playoff baseball so far. I like competitive series among my teams rivals and potential opponents. I also love the drubbing the Yanks but on the Twins.

    The Mariners made it to the LCS at least.

    Dave Roberts needs to be fired.

    At least I wonít be stressed out and have to watch anymore baseball this year.

    I simply cannot believe the Nationals won that game.

    When it was 3-0 in the 8th after getting out of the jam in the 7th, thought it was over. The grand slam in the 10th to win it was the baseball God's rubbing salt into the wound. Damn.

    I felt for Kershaw last night. Such a great pitcher, but man, he's the Greg Norman of baseball.

    Kershaw now has the monkey officially on his 30 million dollar a year back.

    Stunning. Washington vs. St. Louis in the League Championship Series? Who had that square? Feel bad for Bing and Cloudy - it’s one thing to have your team constantly under achieve and not even taste the playoffs, but to have a team that’s clearly the class of the league from April to September and not even make it to the LCS has to sting more than those jalapeŮos from Taco Tuesday completing their tour of your digestive tract. Chin up, fellas - Lakers season is coming (though I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not this year)

    Well that was a crazy night of baseball, huh?

    First the Cardinals blow out the Braves in stunning fashion, which is all the more strange since these games have been so close, usually coming down to the last batter. This one was over before the Braves even took an at-bat.

    I hate to make the comparison since the pedigrees are different, but the same teams just made it come to mind. In 1996 the Cardinals finally made the playoffs for the first time in 9 years and were facing the Braves in the NLCS. They won game 4 to go up 3-1 and Dennis Eckersley famously got fired up after the last strike and pointed at the Braves dugout. This is the same Braves team that was in the playoffs every year in the 90's and was the class of the NL. Apparently the guys in the Atlanta dugout looked at each other and said "who the fuck are these guys? Fuck them, let's kill em." They went on to absolutely pound the Cardinals in the final three games and went to the World Series.

    While not at the same level, I couldn't help but think this whole "throat cut" nonsense (which is entirely overblown, IMO) was the same thing for this series. Acuna Jr does the gesture after game 3 that put the Braves up 2-1. Apparently the Cardinals were offended by it or something (hey, whatever it takes to get you out of bed in the morning and compete). Then Molina makes the dramatic comeback in game 4 and returns the favor. Then game 5 turns into a laugher.

    I feel bad for Braves fans who have seen so many playoff losses in recent years. That being said, their future is bright with the team they have, so they'll be back I'm sure. Acuna Jr. is the real deal. Whether you think he's a knucklehead or not, I would take him on my team any day of the week with the series he just had.

    Then you have the Dodgers and Nationals. What else can you say but Clayton Kershaw is a different pitcher in the post season? He has an ERA 2 full points higher than his regular season career average in the playoffs and is 9-11 overall in the postseason. The dude's cheeks clench tighter than a vice when October hits, which is why I thought it was bizarre that Roberts was set on the piggy-back option of Buehler and Kershaw. I couldn't have been the only thinking "why would you even risk putting the pitcher in an unfamiliar relief situation when he has the history he does?" I know the Dodgers' bullpen hasn't been perfect lately, but damn, talk about creating the obvious outcome.

    For the Dodgers it has to be maddening to see 6 months worth of great baseball evaporate in a week and a half. If they aren't careful, the Astros will have the same fate tonight. For the Nationals, they really have that "team of destiny" vibe about them. Personally I don't like the Cardinals chances against them, but like I said in my last post, postseason baseball is crazy and can often feel like the roll of a dice.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
