NLDS Game Thread: Cardinals @ Phillies

The Most Clutch Hits of 2011
ALDS Game Thread: Rays @ Rangers

The Cardinals made that big late season run to grab the wildcard spot from the Braves on the final day of the season, and their reward is the trio of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels. It’s Doc against Kyle Lohse at 5:07pm ET on TBS. Chat about the game here if you want.

    Go, Cards!

    Hoping for a Cards upset.

  • Cy Pettitte

    no no-hitter? wtf? Halladay blows.

  • Alex S

    BERKMAN!!

    Puma!

  • Tyrion Lannister

    The Phillies are unbeatable. LOL Halladay.

  • http://RAB Nuke LaDoosh

    Wow!

  • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

    I am not kidding, I called that from home.

    FAT ELVIS KILLS THE BASEBALL

  • Cy Pettitte

    that was very un-Halladay like

    Berkman is having such a ridiculous year

  • swishers fauxhawk

    Halladay clearly can’t handle big-game situations.

  • AndrewYF

    Halladay had an historic introduction to postseason baseball, but he hasn’t been all that great since. Clearly, he sucks.

  • Guest

    Lance Mother F’in Berkman!

    I love it when you call me Big Pu-ma.

  • Stratman9652

    Always liked Lance. Glad he’s having a big year.

  • Rey22

    Wow, didn’t see that one coming.

  • JBID

    Halladay has a postseason ERA of 27.00. That guy sucks.

  • Rey22

    How long did that half inning take? 5 minutes at most?

  • David N

    Fat Elvis has left the building!

    He’s also totally ruining the narrative.

  • CP

    Why couldn’t Berkman do that last year.

    • David N

      I seem to recall a certain ALDS game last year in which he came up very clutch.

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      .313/.368./688 in the playoffs last year.

      • swishers fauxhawk

        Yeah, Berkman was the least of our troubles last postseason.

        • http://www.abovetheyankeedugout.com Carl

          Before that, it seemed like he was traded for at the wrong time. His slump with the Astros carried over after trading for him. He might have found something in that postseason to carry over.

  • swishers fauxhawk

    12 pitches, 6 outs. #efficient

    • David N

      Kyle Lohse > Roy Halladay

  • http://www.abovetheyankeedugout.com Carl

    There goes the no-hitter.

  • David N

    Damn, that’s a big error.

  • Nuke LaDoosh

    good thing they got to Roy early

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    This is probably a good spot for the LOOGY.

    • jay

      you called it.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Yep, shoulda LOOGY’d.

  • http://www.abovetheyankeedugout.com Carl

    How did I see that coming?

  • Darren

    It;s pouring rain out here on lower east side. Anyone heard a reliable weather forecast for Yankee game?

  • Kramerica Industries

    FUCK.

    And with Halladay having settled down, this one is basically in the books for Philly.

    Should’ve known better than to get my hopes up.

  • Greg

    Ibanez goes yard 6-3 Phillies.

  • Kramerica Industries

    My God did Kyle Lohse ever lose his grip on this game.

    Thanks for the false hope.

  • mbonzo

    How many hard hit balls does Lohse have to give up to get pulled from this game. I thought LaRussa was quick to the draw with that bullpen.

  • http://www.abovetheyankeedugout.com Carl

    And there goes that ball. Loshe has lost it. He’s just lost it.

  • Mike Lynch

    HUGE choke by Lohse

  • Greg

    YOu have to admire what Ruben Amaro Jr. has done on Philly. Even it it seems to be for the short term.

    • Greg

      Actaully it reminds me a bit of what the Yankees did in the late 90s.

      They set up a core with Howard, Utley, Rollins, and Hamels (Jeter, Posada, Rivera, Pettite)

      They went out and acquired top talent in free agency and trade with Pence, Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, and Polanco (Tino, Brosius, Cone, Wells, and Clemens)

      They also have young guys (in baseball career terms)come up big with Vance Worley and El Duque.

      • mbonzo

        I’ll applaud Amaro when he wins a World Series. If the Phillies can’t pull off a World Series win in the next 2 years, they’ll have wasted a lot of money and prospects that won’t be available for the future. They have a great team, but their organization is a different story.

  • David N

    Damn, this one turned in a hurry.

  • http://RAB Nuke LaDoosh

    I’m not a meteorologist, nor do I play one on T.V., but the Doppler Radar is not giving me any faith in baseball happening in the Bronx tonight.

    • swishers fauxhawk

      I’m no meteorologist either, but I think it’s a good sign that huge pile of green on the map is going in the opposite direction of the Bronx.
