This game time is pretty much in direct conflict with the Colts at San Diego on monday night.  You think they could start this game 2-3 hours earlier?

Why do all of these Cardinal playoff series have to be such a grind? Does anyone else find it odd that with all of the great Cardinal teams that have taken the field in October over the past 50 years or so, only the '06 version won it's matchup with relative ease. It really defies the odds and kind of boggles the mind. Since 1946, of the 10 Cardinal WS appearances, 8 have gone the distance....the full 7 games. Even all of the interleague playoff play has gone down to the wire when St. Louis is taking part. Maybe with the possible exception of the '82 NLCS vs Atlanta....will have to look that up. But anyway, wouldn't it be nice to finally have that Cards playoff series where after a couple games, things look totally under control like last year's SF-Det. series? Don't get me wrong, I would not trade that magical 2011 playoff run for anything. I just think it's high time that we Cardinal fans were able to catch a post season breather.

Over this last 14 year run I would think it is because our dominant team underachieved while our championship teams didn't have the talent to be dominant like you mention.

Tigers were the far more talented team in 2006.. But the fact they swept their way to WS then had what 7 or 8 days off killed their routine and momentum..  I firmly believe that the Tigers read their press clippings and got over confident and when Cards came out a punched them in the mouth in game 1 they never quite recovered..  And with Carp dominating them in game 3 the tide fully turned and they went south from there..

I would argue this LA team is better then any of those teams in 2006..   Pirates were no joke either...

I gotta wonder in LA starts pressing in game 3..  If Cards can get going early and Waino throw up a few zeros.. How do the Dodgers react?  They havent faced many tough times in several months..

A guy (Dodgers fan) told me there was no chance the Cards would beat Greinke or Kershaw let alone win on consecutive games they started..  He claimed it didnt happen during regular season so it couldnt happen in postseason..

Nice posts, TigerKid and Teuf. Just avoid the sweep. That's all our Cards need to do while visiting the City of Angels this coming week. It only occurred once during the entire season.....St. Louis being swept on the road. That having happened in late July in Atlanta. Our Birds sure have them on the ropes now though. If Waino comes through on Monday, then this series should end in LA. But by all means just don't get swept!

I believe there have been quite a few 7 game series where the home team won the first two, but lost the series. So this thing is far from over. In fact, we did that very thing to these same Dodgers in 1985. We lost the first two out there, then swept at home and won game 6 in LA when Jack Clark hit that big homer of Neidenfuer.

Now most likely a lot of those comebacks by the team that lost the first two on the road were not set up where the leaders ace was starting game 3.

This Tiger/Red Sox game is alot like ours today. Tigers hurlers have a no-no through 7.

From what I am hearing,the LA sports community is freaking out about the Dodgers losing the first two games with both their aces pitching.  There is talk again that Mattingly is in trouble (probably just fan nonsense). But, with all that, the Dodgers are under a lot of pressure, and will likely be very aggressive against Waino tomorrow night.  There will likely be much first pitch swinging, so Waino needs to be very careful and not throw any get me over pitches or hanging curves on the first pitch.

I can't watch the game tomorrow night, but I will be following the score.  I would like to win at least one game in LA, and the Waino start is the most likely.  Not taking this series to a Game 7 will benefit my mental health immensely.

Then let us hope it shall come to fruition because a mentally sound Crdswmn is a mentally sound Cardinal Nation. But really though, as I eluded to earlier, we Cardinal fans deserve a playoff series where in the long run a year or two is not shaved off our lifespan due to the immense stress of it all. Take Crdswmn. At the age of 54, with all of the playoff stress she has endured since '67, you have to figure that when it's all said and done, these Cardinal post season heart thumpers will probably cost her a decade. But if you ask her if it was all worth it, I think we all know what her answer would be. Happy Birthday, Crdswmn! I hereby propose the motion that we all treat her like EVERY day here at The Cardinal Nation was Crdswmn's birthday.

I know what you mean Pugs. I went to my first WS in 1967 and then again in 1968. Two nail biters. I was there but remember none of it. I was born in March of 1966. It has been one thrilling playoff ride ever since. The elation in 1982, 2006 and 2011. The playoff melt downs in 85, 2001 and last year. I think the Braves was 2001. This team makes it exciyting win or lose. I wouldn't have it any other way.

GO CARDS!

I hope the boys come out swinging, because I don't think we're going to be getting any close calls. MLB can't afford the Dodgers losing.

Do you honestly believe that MLB tells the home plate umpire how to call a game - and that he actually complies? Really?
