I feel like the Tigers are going to lose in the World Series again, but I would prefer a meteor.

I dislike West as much as the next guy, but he's actually had a pretty decent night. The Red Sox constant bitching is extremely tiring, though.

I started watching in the 7th and as much as it pains me to admit, I thought he did a pretty good job.

This has been a great post-season. I hope both series go 7.

What's the best game? C'mon, say it. It'll be gone in a few weeks and I'll miss it.

Yeah, West was OK. On the borderline pitch that K'ed Pedroia he was right, but he was wrong on ball 2 of that at bat that was a strike. Fox games use the strike zone graphic very sparingly so someone can look it up. Maybe I'm seeing wrong.

The only one I thought he missed for sure was the Lester pitch early in the game. But, as soon as Lester walked over after the inning and did the whole "I'm not showing you up, even thought I'm showing you up" bit, I knew Boston wouldn't get another close call the entire night, which serves them right. The Ortiz and Victorino whining gets old quickly.

1st day in MLB post-season history there were 2 1-0 games.

This would have been the 1st combined no-hitter in postseason history and third overall (Larsen, Halladay). Only one other time has a postseason no-hitter been broken up in the 9th inning, Game 4 of the 1947 World Series:

Holy moley! Bevins allowed one hit but TEN walks!

Wasn't there another World Series game between the Dodgers and Yankees where someone had a no-hitter going into the 9th but there was a dropped third strike and it allowed the runner to get on first and the next pitch was a base hit? I thought it was in 1941 but I might be making something up.

I know the game you're talking about, but it wasn't a no-hitter. The Dodgers were up 4-3 with two outs in the 9th when Hugh Casey threw a third strike that Mickey Owen dropped, allowing Tommy Heinrich to reach 1st base. The Yankees then proceeded to ring up a 7-4 lead, which they held. Owen was labeled the "goat" but much later Casey admitted that the pitch he threw was an illegal spitball.

Tell me about it. Aesthetically speaking, doing it with those beards makes it even more irritating. They cried from start to finish last night; such a sense of entitlement.

Many of their fans are the same way.

Not watching the ALCS, primarily because of Joe Buck. What can I say, the guy has ruined postseason baseball for me. The sound of his voice legitimately angers me.

There is a mute button. You missed a great game last night.
