Great great series all around. All 4 went to 5 games and there was tons of drama in all the series. For the Cards to come back and win like they did in the final is just the cherry on the sundae that were the LDS this years. Great stuff.

Man, it's gotta suck to be a Nats fan right now... wow...

GO GIANTS!!!

I guess that doctors ordered the Nationals to be shut down after playing 8 and 2/3rds.

Already preparing myself for a Cardinals/Yankees World Series. I'm convinced it will go the full seven, with each team rallying to see who can pull the most magical comebacks out of their ass before it ends.

So you're telling us you used to live in Peoria?

You and me both. The two teams I wanted to see move on both died tonight. The best record in baseball falls to a wild card team. What is the world coming to?

You can say that again. These playoffs have been terrific.

Luck is the residue of good design. The Cardinals have an offensive approach that wins in the playoffs. So do the Giants.

Even though I'm an American League guy to the core -- and I believe the American League is a deeper league overall -- I think the two remaining NL teams have fewer flaws than the two remaining AL clubs.

From my experience, they don't hate us anywhere near as much as they hate the cubs. In fact, they don't even hate us, it's just indifference.

Ditto. Most I know are happy to passively cheer for the Sox if they are watching a game.

Nats' team ERA in the NLDS was 6.14. If only they had an ace-type, superstar pitcher somewhere...

The post season has been great so far .. i really wanted the Orioles and A's to meet in the next round,but oh well .. unlike just about everyone on here, i don't hate the Tigers .. if the White Sox hadn't crashed at the end of the season, no one would have even given them a second thought .. i grew up rooting for whatever team won our league or division, so it's difficult for me to change .. i don't even hate the Yankees, im just bored watching them .. they are on the national broadcasts 2 or 3 times a week, all season long, and in the playoffs damn near every year .. i wish they would just go away and leave me alone lol .. i also don't hate the Cardinals, since i don't watch enough NL baseball to hate a team from that league, and i've always liked the fact that St. Louis is a baseball first town .. i suppose i'm envious of that fact, as i have lost interest in every other sport save baseball .. i'm not all that excited about watching the Tigers and Yankees, but it will be hard to stay away ..

The Tigers are going to make the WS and might win it (I'd favor them).
Arrrrrggggggg.
They got the big time favorable draw with Texas clowning the last 3 weeks.

As for the Cardinals, I'm really tired of them, but damn they fight.
