    So, both the Astros and the Dodgers could conceivably be bounced out in the divisional round.

    Raise your hand if you saw that coming, because I sure as shit fucking didn't.

    How awesome would that be and to see the Cardinals knock out Cobb County.

    Shame the Twins couldn't do their job.

    ...and the Braves have already given up a postseason record of TEN runs in just the first inning. :(

    The Braves looked like the Indians in Major League in that first half inning. :sigh:

    Was McCann telling the batters what was coming? Of course there were 3 walks, 2 with the bases loaded.

    Yeah, that was painful, especially the second one to Flaherty, which had been preceded by an intentional walk.

    Apparently this is sweet revenge for the Cardinals: The record for the most runs by a single team in a postseason winner-takes-all is 15. By the Braves. Against the Cardinals. In 1995.

    It's now 13-0.

    Godammit, we're going to get a Cardinals / Yankees World Series and Joe Buck is going to jack off and orgasm live on Fox.

    Ewww...

    If that's what we get, I ain't watching.

    With the Braves crashing and burning, I guess I'll be jumping over to the Rays, if only because of their affiliation with the Bulls.

    What a shame, wait..no it's not, LOL Braves.

    Now for the Nats to take the Dodgers and then the Cardinals on their way to the Series where hopefully they meet the Rays.

    Brian McCann says that tonight was his last game.

    Then it's a damn shame they hit for him in that final inning. :(

    That would be pretty bad but at least we'll be spared Dodgers/Yankees.

    Cardinals/Yankees would be way worse. Let's go, Nationals.

    Hoping the Astros put the Rays down so the ALCS isn't a total nightmare for me. But if it comes to that, better the Rays than the Yankees.

    A Cardinals / Yankees series would have me rooting for a meteor to impact the stadium roughly around the time of the first pitch.

    Edit: Nats / Rays is the only acceptable World Series matchup.

    First ever post season series win for the Nationals franchise.

    Wonder if Dave Roberts will get the axe.
