I told you, gloom and doom is coming.  Woe and despair.  2nd year in a row up 3-1 in the NLCS and we are going to lose.  No way can we beat Kershaw again, and Ryu shut St. Louis down the other night.  We wont score a run the next two games.  We are history.

Jesus rat...

I agree game 6 will be tough...and im pegging this to go 7...ryus home road splits have a decent spread....if we go a few good breaks i say we close this out tomm...if not we will be the fave to do it in 7

Fun fact: vegas has NEVER had the dodgers as an underdog at home or on the road this yr when kershaw is pitching...i suspect when this line comes out tomm he/they will be for the first time

I really don't want this to go 7 games. We need to jump on Kershaw early and then Wacha do his thing.

As we all know, anything can happen in a Game 7. Let's avoid "anything". It's going to be fine, Rat. I'm glad we've witnessed restraint here in regards to Rat's pessimistic post. Rat is frightened. Rat fears the worst. Rat loves his Redbirds so much that the thought of them blowing 3-1 leads in consecutive years for the right to advance to the World Series is flat out unthinkable. It's unimaginable. When crossing paths with Rat over these next couple of days I urge everyone to extend an olive branch in his direction in a show of peace and understanding..... no matter what silliness may come blurting out of that trembling Mannix loving yap of his.

Unfortunately, we're all (justifiably) skittish when we remember what happened last year.  The main difference is we're coming home 3-2, whereas last year we had to go on the road 3-2.  The Dodgers are going to have to beat Wacha and Wainwright at Busch to win this thing. I remain optimistic.

If it were not for the homers allowed by Axford and Mujica the game would have been tied 4-4 going to the bottom of the ninth.  This is no time for the B team Mike.

I'm glad the other guys will be well rested for Friday's game, but I would rather they be resting now, getting ready for the WS.  Instead we have lost 2 of 3, giving momentum back to the opponent. 

This is the time when a game within reach must be played like it is the last game you will ever play.  Anybody can win two in a row, anybody can lose two in a row, so if you have a chance to close it out you have to go all in.  Bring out the thoroughbreds and ride them hard. 

On another note, Adams has looked like the rookie he is.  Outclassed by some top shelf pitching.  Obviously he is frustrated, but it is good experience for him, and should help him grow into his middle of the order role.  Chambers is hopelessly outclassed by that same pitching.  He has no chance at all.  I really think Craig needs to be  the WS DH, however hobbled. Tape the hell out of the foot and crank up the pitching machine to 100.  Have Westbrook and Freeman show him some game speed.  Get ready. Be ready.

Amen brother.  As another poster stated, the Doyers have to beat St. Louis at St. Louis in two straight games against Wacha and Wainwright.  Both teams have their work cut out for them.

And i called LA the Doyers because i swear one of the announcers on the MLB Network called them that the other day.  He called them the Doyers, not the Dodgers.

There we go.
My scrapbook of Hardheaded posts are growing leaps and bounds. On the surface many Hardheaded posts come across as mundane and trivial. But if one opens up their mind, his posts appear light years beyond the ordinary. His short posts say it all without having to endure extraneous words and nonsensical stats. His longer posts are chalk full of educating wisdom. Hardheaded.....man, myth or.....some sort of high tech computer?

Since 2000, the Cardinals are 14-9 in games in which they had the opportunity to clinch a series, according to Elias. That includes Wednesday's loss.

Your attempt to interject logic in the face of the gnashing and wailing is admirable, Brian.

Yet in their last two NCLS that they were up 3-1 they are 0-7 and pretty much were not in a single one of those games.

...and Beltran is 0-7 in potential clinching LCS games.

The only difference and only advantage they have left is that they had to win the previous NLCS  on the road.

I need some help with your math, TC.

First, by 'last two NCLS' (NLCS) you have to mean 2013 and 2012 because that 2011 one worked rather well.  So, let's look at 2012 and 2013.

2012 - up 3-1 and whiffed on three games to reach the WS = 0-3
2013 - up 3-1 and missed first opportunity to reach the WS = 0-1

0-3 plus 0-1 = 0-4 to date, not 0-7.  

'and pretty much were not in a single one of those games'???  Did you miss where St. Louis tied yesterday's game at 2-2 and had the tying runs on base in the 9th?  You clearly have a different definition of 'not in a single one of those games' than I do.
