In 7 playoff games Vlad has 1 RBI -- on a fielder's choice. He has something like 6 base hits -- all singles -- and zero home runs. In short, Vlad is close to pulling an A-Rod.

Figgins is hitting .143

Figgins stunk in last year's ALDS too...he's no Mr. October.
Probably still can't get past his parents spelling Sean or Shawn "C-h-o-n-e".
Maybe they misread the birth certificate and the "n" is really a "k"

i refuse to pronounce his name as "shawn"

to me, he will always be Ch-ch-ch-chone, which rhymes with tone.

And the Greater Monterrey Angelos are learning about cruel playoff losses that will haunt them forever.

Shuck on it, Trebek. Shuck it long, and shuck it hard.

Oh yeah, I agree. Every one in my family calls him "ch"one.

Wow you're a real downer of a fan...first it was "Oh no we could lose to the Padres, wah wah" when everyone else knew the barely .500 Padres stood no chance...now its "Oh no I don't have faith in Morris".

Do you ever actually root for the team, or just plan for the worst?

Although if Reggie Barry Sanders ends up out, you couyld be in trouble since he's driven in 44% of the Cards' playoff runs to date.

For someone who is a huge Cardinals fan, you sure aren't very optimistic about your team.

When I post something positive you call me over confident, when I post somethign realistic you call me a real downer fan.

If Morris can find a way to man up and we can steal the first game in Houston, that would be huge. I'd like my chances of winning at least one of the next 2 games with Suppan vs Backe and then Carpenter vs Pettitte again. That would give the Cards a 3-2 lead coming back to Busch for the final two, and I don't think we'd blow that.

If Morris loses, that means we'd have to win both of the next 2 games to come back 3-2. If we only win one in Houston and come back to St. Louis down 3-2, I don't like the Cards chances, especially with a Rocket vs Morris match up in game 7, that is ever Cards fan nightmare.

So, if the Cardinals would have won last night I would have given them a 80% chance of winning the series, now it's 50%.

This next game is huge, my only hope is Clemens is still a bit off and we are able to get 4 or 5 off him.

I'm not sure I've ever referred to you as "over-confident".
But for a guy who's team is the odds on favorite to win the Series, you sound more like Glum from the old Gulliver's Travels cartoons than someone who's enjoying watching his team compete in the playoffs.
