Post Season Schedule thread

let the speculating of times begin….. (UPDATED)

Phillies – Cardinals discussion and prediction thread.

DMC gets to start the NLDS Game 1 GDT, but until then, your thoughts on the upcoming series against the Cards?  Doug/MT – Please post the pitching matchups and full schedule (with times and TV schedule) when they are officially announced. Thanks. I say Phillies in 4. I actually believe they can sweep them, but with Carpenter probably not going until Game 3 because of him pitching tonight, and him having a favorable (I still like Hamels much more than Carpenter, but favorable to pitching a Game 1 vs. Halladay) matchup, I think the Cards can steal a game. Also, the Phillies have had tons of trouble against Jaime Garcia in his entire career and not just this year (6 gm, 4 gs, 1.20 ERA), but he’s a pitcher that can be gotten to early and has been known to get hit up a lot if he starts struggling. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them lose one of those two games, but that’s it.

Great night to be a baseball fan


Phillies Milestones/All-Time Rankings thread Thread

Reyes Singles, Sits

Ted Williams he ain’t:  The New York Mets shortstop, who entered Wednesday in the lead for the NL batting crown, singled to lead off the bottom of the first inning, raising his average to .337. He was then pulled from the game by New York Mets manager Terry Collins. Collins hinted earlier in the week that he planned to lift Reyes if he got on base early and upped his average.

Post-Game Red Sawx Quotes

Hilarity ensues …

A-Gon Blames God for the Loss: “I’m a firm believer that God has a plan and it wasn’t in his plan for us to move forward. God didn’t have it in the cards for us… For me, I’m a firm believer in God and God has a plan and it wasn’t in God’s plan for us to be in the playoffs.” — Adrian Gonzalez…

Great quote from Matt Sussman

I hate the Braves because they ooze arrogance, even though everyone beats them in the post-season. This was sweet. The quote: “My heart goes out to the Atlanta Braves, mostly because they didn’t play with any in September.” – Matt Sussman of Detroit, on Twitter

MLB Awards, who do you have so far?

Mvp: Bautista
Cy Young: Verlander
ROY: Hellickson

Cy Young: Kershaw
ROY: Freeman

Had a really, really hard time w/ NL MVP. I was back and forth with Kemp and Votto, but I think Votto has been excellent this year, again, but I do not think he will win. I think Upton will win the MVP this year. Besides the NL Cy young, i think the rest were easy choices for me.
