NLCS Game 1: Extra Innings

Is this even fun? I’m honestly not sure I’m having fun. Yay, Zack Greinke! Yay, Juan Uribe! But also pinch-running and missed opportunities and questionable strike zones and not using your best pitcher in big spots and heart attacks and night sweats… well, it’s headed to the tenth, so time to fire up a second discussion thread.

For the record, the chances of Michael Young having a big hit in Adrian Gonzalez‘ spot and the world imploding are something north of 167%.

We lost this game on stupid decisions that cost us the game. We all saw this game.... The cards had nothing

Sending Ellis home on that short fly was total Dumbassery. Who did that?

At least Greinke pitched to his normal standards against the Cards, even though the runs he gave up were tainted with the stupid.

Pro tip for any little leaguers who might be reading--don't walk people with Carlos f***ing Beltran on deck, and don't run on Carlos Beltran on a 200 foot fly ball?  Clear?  Good--now go to bed, it's late.

Matheny doesn't do idiot things like Donnie does. Taking AGon out of the game in that situation... Michael Young twice instead of AGon........

Tough loss to recover from, but this team has what it takes to recover.
