Cardinals vs Houston Pt 1

Here's a thread for the series nobody cares about, or at least the media. The Yankees/Red sox is a great series and all, but sometimes enough is enough, there is another series going on.

It should be a great series too, I'm damn scared of the Astro's, but luckily their pitching rotation is meessed up.

They have to go with a rookie pitcher with a road era over 6 on 3 days rest in game 1, then a very bad Munro in game 2. The Cardinals better win both or else they could be in trouble.

I predict the Cardinals in 6.

damn good job by major league baseball to put game 1 of the astros-cardinals series on at the same time as game 2 of the yankees-red sox series

Roger Clemens is the Antichrist. No reasonable person can dispute this.

well they sure weren't gonna put the yankees-red sox on at 4:00, and i guess they didn't think it fair to have the astros & cardinals on at 4:00 every day either. who knows... but leave it to selig to screw it up.

it's been a long time since the cardinals even won game one of the NLCS too...1987 when they won 5-3 over 'frisco...they lost game 1 in 96,00,02

good, let them throw lidge out in the 7th inning

the more the cardinals get to see him, the better they'll become against him, and he'll become fatigued

if they have to pitch him 7-9 in multiple games, theres no way houston will win

don't underestimate the emotion factor... a lot of those guys on the astros just lost their best friend... that can push a team in one of two different directions... they can either tank, or play their f'ing asses off like they've never played before, with a renewed sense of mission.

Oh yeah, I hear there's also some sort of debate going on tonight as well.

I dunno. I don't think it matters much. It always seemed to me that pro athletes step out onto the field/court/whatever and forget the rest of the outside world while they're playing.

Maybe Fox will provide a transcript of the debate at the bottom of the screen during the games. Remember when the Oscars went up against Game 7 a few years ago?

BOS 0 NYY 0 TOP 3RD...BUSH CALLS KERRY "DANGEROUSLY INDECISIVE"...KERRY SLAMS BUSH'S HANDLING OF WAR AS "SHORT-SIGHTED"...
