I don't get to see much of the games because they are on so late. However, looking at the numbers, why didn't the Cards start doing this a couple of games ago? It might be too late now.

It may be. You can bet if they don't rally to take this series it will become an issue to be discussed; especially for Card fans. In Game 5, he came up against Wainwright on his first at bat of the night with Pedroia on second and first base open. Given how hot he's been, I figured they'd at least give him the unintentional intentional walk. Nope, and Papi laced the first pitch down the line to drive in the game's first run.

Pitching to him would make a lot more sense if the guys behind him were doing anything but so far they haven't done much at all (outside of the Gomes homer in Game 4).

If I were Wacha, I wouldn't be throwing the ball anywhere near the plate when Ortiz is at bat.

All these pregame shows make it sound like the Red Sox winning it is a foregone conclusion, but I wouldn't rule out the Cards yet.

One of those calls that could have gone either way. Big run right there.

On the bright side, we don't have to listen to Tim McCarver ever again after tonight.

Cardinal fans are probably having bad memories now of Game 7 in 1985 @ KC. Get Joaquin Andujar up in the bullpen for laughs.

Can't even execute a simple run-down play.

Tim McCarver's retirement can't come too soon.

Anytime you're mentioned in the same breath as Lou Gehrig you've done something special?

Am I the only listener who wasn't thinking ALS?

Agreed.

BTW, am I the only one who thinks "God Bless America" is a dull, uninspiring song?

I hope our Sox can do something like this next year and eliminate their Sox in the playoffs

but a lot of things need to happen.

The Red Sox finished last in 2012.
