I expect one fourth of the action on this thread as on the other thread.

I have liked the Cardinals over the years due to their rivalry with the Cubs and their relationship with AB. I am a die hard Mets fan. I think the Mets will win this series. I am ecstatic of having a shot at attending the NLCS and with Detroit winning the World Series without having to go to New York and spend crazy amounts on tickets and lodging.

This should be a great series. I think the Mets' starting staff held together by scotch tape at this point and their awesome bullpen will be able to give the offense a chance to win 4 games in this series (and hopfully the next).

The Cardinals are like Detroit in that they were able to regroup after a poor September. Part of that is the fact the NL West has never provided good playoff competition (they are now 3-13 in the opening round of the playoffs since Bud created six divisions post strike).

I think this series will go six or seven and I am glad the final game will most likely be at Shea.

Should be a great week plus of baseball before the World Series. :supernana:

I'm going to be in Saint Louis starting Thursday, Oct. 26. If the Cardinals make it, the potential Game 5 would be held Thursday, Oct. 26 at Busch Stadium. If that happens, I'm going to try to score a ticket.

The Cardinals were the first team I really supported, having spent ages 3-6 growing up in Springfield, Illinois, the home of the Cardinals' AAA franchise at the time. Watching the Cardinals win the 1982 World Series is my first baseball memory. (Of course, I jumped on the Sox bandwagon when I moved to Chicago to start second grade in August 1983.)

Therefore, I really do have to root for the Cardinals.

Didn't the Giants go to the series in 2002 and Arizona won it in 2001 That's at least 6 wins there, plus 1 by the Pads this year, and 1 by the Dodgers 2 years ago. I'm not keeping the closest tabs on this division but I think it has achieved a bit more than you gave it credit for.

Back to the topic at hand.... This is a very interesting series. St. Louis looked like they were the worst team to ever make the post season. They couldn't even win on the last day to clinch it. And then they come out FIRING on all cylinders.

I think the Cards have a legit shot at this pennant. It should be a longer series. Def 6-7 games in my mind.

The NL West are 3-13 in series played (http://www.baseball-reference.com/postseason/) (not games in NLCS played) since Division Series / six divisions were instituted in 1995.

This is what happens when beating 3 (and with the wild card 2) teams counts as "winning" something.

Now... call me crazy, but I never thought the number of wins a team had was what determined how good they were.

You all say that the National Leauge sucks and while it's true that they have fewer wins per team, they also have fewer teams with really horrible records. The American League had two teams with over 100 losses while the National League had none, for example. The stats are just more spread out and while that could mean that the National Leauge is collectively not as a good, it could also mean that they are collectively better.

I am not saying that the National Leauge is good - they have proven in a number of circumstances to be the inferior league, but I would much rather go by other stats because to me, you need more than wins and losses within a leauge to determine how good they are.

I understand the win/loss argument for pitchers (starting or relief), but for an entire team? Come on man, you play the games to see how many you can win. If you can't judge a team by the number of wins they have, what else do you have? If Team A has a .2327857 WHORFILRISP while Team B has a 2.2385t238 WHORFILRISP, that clearly means Team B has the better WHORFILRISP. But Team A had 20 more wins. (Please...someone see the humor in that :wink:).

There's a reason standings are based off win/loss records.

brewcrew/chisox
10-10-2006, 12:29 PM
Not a big fan of the Mets either. I won't be rooting for either team coming out of the nAAAtional league.

I dislike teams that are overloved, or overhyped....hence my dislike for the Cardinals, Cubs, and Yankees...all get far too much coverage and acolades IMO.....the Derick Jeter love fest during this last series was just one example of how sickening some of the coverage can get with certain teams.

I'll even go so far as to say that overcoverage and overhype by the media can contribute to one getting annoyed with his or her own favorite team.

I'll give an example..my beloved Packers and the media's syrup laden coverage of Brett Favre. I'll always be a Packer fan and always be a Farve fan, but shut up already. How many times did Farve have to play a game for some smaltzy (sp?) cause...wife has cancer, father dies, goldfish is sick etc... It was pretty bad in Wisconsin when the Packers went to the superbowl as well...Local coverage during the playoffs was unwatchable....ie what did Mike Holmgren have for breakfast today?

I was surprised about the coverage of the Whitesox actually, as it didn't seem too over the top or overly sentimental to me, although methinks that if the Bears go to the Superbowl I will have to get my vomit bag for some of the personal interest stories that will bombard the airwaves (and yes, I realize that part of my nausea may be because I'm a Packer fan) :wink:

Watching the awesome 1986 Mets Box Set has brought back some awesome memories.

NBC had a great broadcast back then with Scully and Garagiola (and no annoying graphics every two seconds or show promos or idiot announcer in the stands).

The players were about one or two inches shorter and about 15 to 20 pounds lighter back then. Dyskstra looked about 40 lbs. lighter than when he went to Philly. Sid Fernandez, the Mets rotund pitcher would probably be the second lightest staff member in 2005 (to Buehrle).

Bill Buckner was hit in the hip with a fast ball in the top of the 10th and about 10 minutes later made his infamous gaffe.

I think any baseball fan from the 1980s would enjoy the box set. I don't know how much Boston fans would enjoy it but I think they would like watching Games 1 - 5 at minimum.

But there is interleague play, and the National League got dominated. The Sox went 14-4 and had the 3rd best interleague record in their own division!!! That's why I don't want the Cardinals to win. If they were in the AL Central, they would struggle to beat out Cleveland for 4th place. In the NL Central, they have a shot to go to the World Series.

You can't really use W-L to compare the leagues. Look at interleague. People who argue the NL sucks don't care about any team's record in the NL because it is just a lot of mediocrity playing each other. I would go as far to say that any AL team would easily have a better record if in the NL

I was out drinking and watching the Mets pwn the Cardinals who I like (but not as much) because they share the same city as AB's world headquarters.

Baby Fisk only comes here when he is on the government dole, I mean government payroll. :D:

Everybody loves the New York Mets. Seven more wins and Queens will be rocking!!!

The Tigers had better win the World Series because if one of these crappy teams wins the series I will be so pissed. These teams suck, the Cardinals are barely better than a .500 team, and would've finished 5th in the AL Central, ahead of only Kansas City. They play in the worst division in baseball, and they still could only manage 83 wins. They should not have a chance at the World Series. What a joke that would be if they managed to get there. That would probably be the worst World Series team ever.

As for the Mets, at least they're respectable, but still, in the AL, the White Sox, Red Sox, Yankees, Blue Jays, Tigers, Twins, A's, and Angels are all better. The Mets wouldn't have made the playoffs in the AL, at best they would've maybe finished 3rd in any of the AL divisions. Their record may be good, but if any of these AL teams I listed played against the NL all year long, they would win well over 100 games.

The 1973 Mets were slightly worse with 82 wins. They took down the Big Red Machine (who had 99 wins) in the NLCS, and they took a 3-2 lead over Oakland in the World Series before finally losing in Games 6 and 7. I can only imagine how pissed Reds fans were when they lost, and how pissed Oakland fans were when they nearly lost.

I hope Detroit at least loses 1 more game throughout the rest of the playoffs. I expect them to win the World Series, but I don't want them to go 11-1 because then people would really try to compare them to the '05 Sox. The Tigers couldn't beat the '06 Sox head to head, so they wouldn't have a chance against the '05 team.

I know he has sucked the past two seasons, but what was KW thinking when he didn't ask about trading for Oliver Perez? Pittsburgh basically gave him away. Perez could have been had for nothing. Maybe Kenny didn't want another Vazquez type, but if this guy can figure it out, he can be dominant. Other pluses to trading for him would have been that he is young(25) and a lefty. Maybe we can steal him from the Mets for one of our older starters.

It is pretty hard when you lose a Hall of Fame Ace as well as two other starters (El Duque and Victor Zambrano) to be dominant in the postseason. If they win tonight they are 5-2 and still a respectible club vs. the AL. Whether they are able to defeat Detroit or not will have to wait until next week (assuming they get past St. Louis). The Mets have the offense to defeat Detroit - I don't know if they can patch together enough pitching to win four games.

I don't envision a sweep by the Tigers as they do not have the dominant teams Boston and the White Sox brought to the World Series the previous two seasons.

The yankees said that if they give McCarthy they would be willing to pay big chunk of his contract. I would do McCarthy, fields, and some AA prospect for A-rod. Have A-rod play short, crede at 3rd, iguchi 2nd, and konerko 1st. That would give the sox one of the best infields in the mlb. If the sox were to get A-rod that would give the sox 4 legit 40+ homerun guys.

I think there are arguments both ways:

For - Opportunity to go up 3-2 w/ your ace pitching at STL. Also, should they make the WS, he'd pitch an earlier game in that.

Against - If STL were to lose game 5, they'd probably pretty much be done, whereas holding him back, they'd have a better shot in Game 6 at NY.

If Pedro Martinez was healthy and on the mound the Mets would be a slight underdog against Detroit.

The AL teams over the previous two seasons were clearly dominant and the AL has had an overall better performance over the past few years but anything can happen in the playoffs / in a short series.

I think the Mets have a shot this year even with their depleted staff.

haha, I love it. It's worth a shot, I mean maybe the Cardimets would take two games instead of the inevitable 4-1 or 4-0 the Tigers will lay on NY or STL.

EDIT: The pitching staff is still pretty comical compared to detroit.
Carpenter, Glavine, Weaver, Maine vs. Verlander, Rogers, Bonderman, Robertson.

I was overjoyed to actually witness real live disappointment from a couple that were either A) actual Mets fans or B) Cubs fans rooting against St. Louis.

Let's wrap this one up Cards so you can get spanked by Detroit...

It's so depressing living in Columbia, MO and rooming with two Cardinals fans. I'm happy for them but that excitement that I had last year is just not in me for these playoffs. I try to get excited for the Cards because I want them to beat the Mets but when my team (the White Sox) is in the playoffs my heart goes off the charts. It's just incredible. I wish we could do that again.

But I am happy for Cards fans hopefully they can pull out a win tonight and then proceed to probably get swept by the Tiggers.

Who is Ron Santo rooting for? His hatred of the Mets is well documented.

I honestly believe the Cardinals can make it an interesting World Series against the Tigers Verlander is a better pitcher if he has at least a week between starts, but St. Louis may surprise people at the end.

First the Cardinals have to beet the Mets, though.

After 3 innings, this is the first post on a huge baseball game. The A's and Tigers would have put up 30 or 40 by now. I wonder if the World Series will show as much interest with no Frank Thomas exploits to kick around anymore.

When I think Game 7 and the Cardinals franchise, I'm not exactly thinking Jeff Suppan. If I were watching the game tonight, I would love to be watching it with Bob Gibson, who started three Game 7s for the Cardinals.

My personal preference is to keep New York out of the World Series, but neither offense seems to be feasting on tonight's pitching.

Meh. For me it's a combination of rooting for one of my best friend's favorite teams plus ex-White Sox like Manos, El Duque and Roberto Hernandez. Also, the Cards had their chance 2 years ago and completely ****ing sucked against the hated BoSox; the Mets haven't been to the Series in several years, and it's not like they're a perennial postseason team like the Cards are.

I just don't think either team is looking ready to give the Tigers fits. I'd be surprised if the World Series goes more than 5 games.
