We already lost Jack Buck, when Tim McCarver and Mike Shannon go its going to be a sad day. I listen to cards game through the app and hearing Shannon is getting pretty rough these days
They had a celebration for him on the field. Lots of people said some words. Joe Morgan. Pete Rose. Bob Euchre. Al Michaels. But when Marty got up there to try and thank the fans and say his goodbyes, he had a tough time keeping it together.
So did I. Been listening to that dude for 40+ years. I had to shut my office door and have a moment.
It felt like closing a chapter of my childhood.
Its amazing how long those guys lasted. Hopefully they are replaced by someone just as memorable for the youngsters today. Listening to the game will never be the same for you.
National league playoff teams are set.
Div Winners : Dodgers, Braves, (Cards or Brewers)
Wild Card : Nationals, (Cards or Brewers)
Cards have a 1 game lead over the red-hot Brewers who have won 7 in a row and 9 of their last 10.
Brewers have a 3 game set @ Colorado.
Cards play 3 games at home against the Cubs. It's expected that the eliminated Cubs will bench the majority of their regulars.
American League division winners are set: Yankees, Twins and Astros
3 possible teams can grab the wildcard. The likely teams will be Oakland (+1) and Tampa Bay (-), but Cleveland (-2) isn't officially eliminated yet.
All 3 teams end the season on the road...
Oakland has 3 games left @ Seattle
Tampa Bay has a 3 game set @ Toronto
Cleveland has 3 @ Washington.
I hope he breaks the record just because fuck the Yankees. And this is from a Cards fan that remembers that the Mets are pond scum
growing up a Mets fan in a all Cardinals family, I get it.
Hopefully you have seen the errors of your ways
NL Wild Card Game tonight.
Woodruff on the bump for the Brewers. Scherzer gets the obvious nod for the Nationals.
The only Brewer with any modicum of success against Scherzer is Yelich, but he still has a broken kneecap. The rest of the Brewers have a combined .140 batting average against Scherzer, and Cain and Braun are a combined 0 for 29.
Brewers on the road: 40-41
Nats at home: 50-31
I'm rooting for the Brewers, but it's not looking good for them tonight.
If you’re wearing sliding gloves, as the ghey cardinals are, you’re a downright pussy
Leave it to a pussy team like the cardinals, lmao
LOL @ Acuna.
Showboats a ball that ended up hitting the wall and he ends up with only a single. Then he gets doubled up at 2nd after Donaldson hit a liner to shortstop. Absolutely horrible baserunning.
Playoffs starting ok, with the sad cardinals getting lucky against the better team, the braves
Thank fuck the cardinals exist, otherwise the Red Sox might still be without a World Series win
And that would make me upset
Cards Magic number is 10. You still have time. PM me your address and I will send you a Yadi shirt.
The Yankees are twats
Ha ha, yes sir!!!!!!
Gary Sanchez is a legit man
Say what you want but that guy ate an up and high fastball that hit his bat and he manned up and admitted it
I hate the Yankees but respect a player like him
Sanchez is one of my favourite players to not play for the Red Sox
He’s a legit player
