NLDS Game Thread: Cardinals @ Phillies


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.


  1. Regis says:

    Go, Cards!

  2. Craig says:

    Hoping for a Cards upset.

  3. Cy Pettitte says:

    no no-hitter? wtf? Halladay blows.

  4. Alex S says:


  5. Tyrion Lannister says:

    The Phillies are unbeatable. LOL Halladay.

  6. Freddy Garcia's 86 mph Heat says:

    I am not kidding, I called that from home.

  9. Cy Pettitte says:

    that was very un-Halladay like

    Berkman is having such a ridiculous year

  10. swishers fauxhawk says:

    Halladay clearly can’t handle big-game situations.

  11. AndrewYF says:

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

  12. Guest says:

    Lance Mother F’in Berkman!

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

  13. Stratman9652 says:

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

  14. Rey22 says:

    Wow, didn’t see that one coming.

  15. JBID says:

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

  16. Rey22 says:

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

  17. David N says:

    Fat Elvis has left the building!

    He’s also totally ruining the narrative.

  18. CP says:

    Why couldn’t Berkman do that last year.

  19. swishers fauxhawk says:

    12 pitches, 6 outs. #efficient

  20. Carl says:

    There goes the no-hitter.

  21. David N says:

    Damn, that’s a big error.

  22. Nuke LaDoosh says:

    good thing they got to Roy early

  23. Mike Axisa says:

    This is probably a good spot for the LOOGY.

  24. Mike Axisa says:

    Yep, shoulda LOOGY’d.

  25. Carl says:

    How did I see that coming?

  26. Darren says:

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

  27. Kramerica Industries says:


    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.

  28. Greg says:

    Ibanez goes yard 6-3 Phillies.

  29. Kramerica Industries says:

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

    Thanks for the false hope.

  30. mbonzo says:

    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.

  31. Carl says:

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

  32. Mike Lynch says:

    HUGE choke by Lohse

  33. Greg says:

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

    • Greg says:

      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 says:

        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.

  34. David N says:

    Damn, this one turned in a hurry.

  35. Nuke LaDoosh says:

    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 says:

      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.
