MLB 2008 Post Season Catch-All

9:30, looks like they will try to start the game at 10PM. Hope nobody on either team gets hurt do to the wet surface.

Rocky theme.

Edit: Ho-ly sh*t. Why aren't we getting more tacos for all these steals?

Double edit: Seriously, of all the antics in tonight's game, we should all get one of those flamethrower tacos.

Triple edit: On second thought, stop with the drinking every time FOX plays the Rocky theme. I'm on the verge of passing out.

Tough loss for the Rays. We'll see how they handle it.

Man, Philly fans are the biggest dicks.

"Eva"....... It doesn't even make sense - Something you'd hear in Jr. High School. I like most of the Philli players and their manager, but I REALLY want them to lose because their fans are tools.

Yeah, the bats just are there yet for the Rays. We should be hitting the hell out of these Philly pitchers. Philly is doing a good job of hitting and theRays are doing a good job of stranding them on base.

Hope those bats wake up soon!

Sorry I missed Game 3 - just started too late for me to stick it through. I saw the highlights today and it looks like it was a pretty exciting finish. Tough for the Rays but based on what they showed in the ALCS all they need is a little spark to get the heart of that lineup hitting again.

Blown call!

Edit: Rocky theme!

Iwamora's gotta be on the take tonight.

No matter who was the better team before the series (read: Rays) the Phillies are definitely the better team right now. Even though pitching has been decent for the Rays the bats just aren't there.

With Cole Hammels going up tomorrow night, the Rays are in serious trouble right now.

Tonight will be a test of what the Rays are made of. They showed they had a spot with the big boys when they smacked down my Sox in game 7, let's see if they can pull out their own heroic stand.

I'll just put the emoticon up now and leave it at that.

The last thing the Rays need is to be getting hosed by the home plate umpire. This guy is calling balls like he's on the Phillies payroll. Worst balls & strikes calling I have seen in the post season EVER.

A delay? isn't it supposed to rain until Thursday in that area?

I don't know who this'll hurt more. Philly loses Hamels, but can Tampa Bay's bullpen go the distance if in fact they can play tomorrow?

Hell, if they can't play tomorrow and the Phillies lose, we could see Hamels again in game 7. This is craziness. Good craziness, but craziness.

Bud Selig is an asshole.. never should have allowed that 6th inning to go.. should have called it at 2-1.. but he was to chicken sh*t to announce that the game would be suspended and not called for fear of riots.

Actually the fning game should never have even been played.. should have called it and moved it to tonight.. or Thursday if tonights a no go.

Morons.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is full of liiiiiiiiiiiiiiies!

Game 5 completion postposed until Wednesday.

Agreed. I don't want to win a world series on a called game, and I think they way the handled it may have been the best they could, but it was still piss poor.

Still, if they weren't going to call the game with a lead, I would have prefered the Phillies hold onto a 1 run lead all the way through the ninth. Let the runners swim to the bases.

Half a zillion weather reports and radar showed a huge band of rain that was going to sit over the stadium all night.. and yet Selig claims his reports were showing that it would only be a bit of light rain that would only involve a rain delay.

This gets better and better..

If the Phillies lose the series, these twin babies are going to be taking sh*t for the rest of their lives.

If there weren't enough reasons to not vote for Obama, now he delays the start of game 5 v2 for his mind control half hour.....

Man, how can you not love Rocco Baldelli?

If it was a full game, I'd understand the upsetedness, but this is a McGame.

Well, I guess this was just a delay of the inevitable. Congrats to Philadelphia, etc., etc.

Congrats, Rays have plenty to be proud of this year.

I fully expect Philly to burn to the ground tonight.

OMG

How dissapointing.

Ah, well. There are a lot of cool players on Philly, hats off to them.

So Rat Boy, I can expect your Hot Stove Thread to start by week's end?

Dear Brad,

Sorry, I missed your World Series save. I was too busy making a butterfly land on a retarded boy's head.

XOXO,
Jesus

Rays in 5, but a sweep won't surprise me. The Phillies will be wasting time getting off the bus.

Did you take that to Vegas?
