  • How can the Reds bounce back from something like that? Though, not that anyone really expected to win the series...

    • That comments gives me a deja vu from 1984, after the Cubs drubbed the Padres 12-1 iirc in Game One.

      I'm more concerned with the Twins, who really let a golden opportunity slip away. They seem to have a real mental block vs. the Yanks.

      • Though in 1984, it was a 7 game series. Easier to come back in a longer series. Falling behind in a 5 game one is brutal.

        And Rays look like they are going to go down 2 games to 0 .

        • Uh, no. Check your records, Imran. Cubs won the first two, then lost three.

          As you say, it was brutal.

              • I think the winner in the A.L. takes it this year. The Rangers had a harder time with the Rays this year than the aging Yankees.

                • Wow, Tim Lincecum with a great game. 2 hits, 14 K's of the Braves. 1 run is all that's needed.

                  • And the Yankees are the first team into the LCS, as they sweep the Twins, who can't do ANYTHING right in the postseason... and the Rays stave off elimination.

                    • The Twins can't throw on defense worth spit. It was disgusting to watch.

                      • Watching Phil Hughes, who I've been following since he was in AA, dominate for 7 innings in a playoff game was a thing of beauty. Damn, that felt good.

                        Well, I was wrong regarding the Yankees pitching. Pettitte came up huge, showing his injuries are not an issue. Hughes, I think, really benifitted from the extra rest. The O did its usual thing, and the D was solid. The Twins OF defense did not distinguish itself, which I expected. That's about the only thing I got right. Hey, I'll take it

                        Meanwhile, Rangers-Rays goes 5.

                        What is up with the ALCS starting on Friday? The latest the D-series could have gone is Tuesday. Minimum of 2 days off between. WTF?

                        • That's the Phillies' choice. The #1 seed (Phils) chooses 2 days off before they start, or after they conclude. They chose the obvious "both".

                            • Game 5 of the Rays v. Rangers on Tuesday! Lee vs. Price. Should be a great one!

                              • NLCS is set! Phillies vs. Giants as San Fran dispatches the Braves. Should be some GREAT pitching duels! Can't wait to see Halladay vs. Lincecum!
