laugh.gif . . . **** you

@dland24 you think the cardinals have the pitching to shut down both the Dodgers and Nationals and the line up to beat the pitching. I haven't seen much cardinals games but haven't they been inconsistent besides waino. I'm a dodger fan but the Nationals have been rocking and their pitching has been on fire all month especially this last week.

Also factor in experience. Nats have a lot of talent but wouldn't be surprised if they choke in the post season. Dodgers have too much hype, I'm expecting them to blow it too. Every year I say STL is finally done, they make it all the way.

I mean.....


How often does the favorite or the top couple of favorites heading into the playoffs end up winning the World Series?  Last time I can think was 6 years ago with the Yankees.  Cardinals have the Championship pedigree that the Dodgers and Nationals are severely lacking.  I realize both of those teams are favored over the Cardinals to win it all, but I wouldnt say that me thinking the Cards will win it all should warrant an accusation of being drunk.  :lol 

 

**EDIT** @Ballerific703 beat me to it.  lol

True and we could debate this all week but at the end of the day all that matters is the scoreboard.

I guess we can't complain. Nats or O's are gonna have their game at 12pm local time on Friday laugh.gif

Thread Starter 
I would hate it if it happened but I can see a beltway series. O's might not have the rotation but they can make it a five inning game, cut it off and play the matchups.

The Royals are a real darkhorse team too.

I think we end up getting Angels/Nationals. It's a tough post season to pick.

Royals such a huge story here in KC...people have literally been waiting for this for 30 years...insane.

 

Chiefs are playing on MNF, Mizzou had a huge comeback win over the weekend, Charlie Weis fired at KU...Royals are DOMINATING sports talk radio after an extremely busy weekend/Monday...

Hoping KC comes out on top tomorrow. Wouldn't mind seeing them go on a run.

Though I'm still bitter over Angel Berroa beating out Hideki for ROY.

Never seen anything like it. I hope they can replicate but it will be hard



And NEVER count the Cards out in the post season. It's what they do

Homer Pick: Giants vs. Orioles (All Orange WS)
Reality: Cardinals vs. Tigers
post #27113 of 77558
I could see us getting bounced in the NLDS. Still don't see the Cards getting past the Nats. We matchup well with the Cards. Reason I can see it go either way.

Outside of Greinke and Kershaw don't have much in terms of consistency. Kershaw can have a dominating game like last years NLCS game 2 and still lose.

At the end if he day all 5 teams have what it takes to make it. They are all somewhat hot. Think we'll get past the Cards, but like I said wouldn't be shocked if we get bounced.

Game 1 is going to suck balls. 3:37 start and it's expected to be triple digits. Sheesh.

Hoping for some teams to get in there that we haven't seen in a WS for awhile/ever...Nats, Pirates, Dodgers vs. Orioles, Royals or even Oakland.

My actual pick is Nationals vs. Royals

Vikings | Timberwolves | Mariners | Twins | Huskies
