This layoff between the LDS and LCS really sucks.

Oh it's sexist alright...if it was Michael Kay blubbering like that trust me, he'd face much more ridicule. Somehow I don't think that's exactly what she meant though...

So who do we like for most total bases tonight gang?

Matt Holliday -110
or
Eric Byrnes -120

I'll go off the grid and say Todd Helton.

Oh and I call Micah Owings for most total bases in game 4...if the D'Backs make the World Series would they be crazy to DH him in the AL park? You probably wouldn't do it in the first 2 games, but say he pitches in game 4 and you're back in Boston/Cleveland for a game 6, he's not pitching again...I'd do it.

Bodog currently has Holliday -125 and Byrnes -105. Did this line make a massive move in the last few hours?

EDIT: Nevermind, the line I just quoted is hits+runs+RBIs.

For the total bases prop bet, I think Matt Holliday -110 would be a better value, but I'm not sure either side is profitable. Obviously Holliday's power advantage is negated somewhat by the fact that he has to go up against Brandon Webb, but Webb actually gave up walks at a higher rate then Jeff Francis did, and Holliday drew walks at a higher rate than Byrnes, so that might make the difference.

Its not most for all players, its a head to head, so that prop is Holliday vs Byrnes.

I went with Holliday, like speed said, seems the better value, but of course with this pitching matchup, they may both go 0 fer.

2 things:

1) The Yankee radio team are a fucking abomination. They embarass the shit out of me. Just unreal. She's a clown, there's no two ways about it.

2) Chip fucking Caray is atrocious. He yells everything. I read the NY Times article about all of his mistakes. but it goes beyond that. He's just not even pleasant to listen to. Toss in Gwynn and it truly is a challenging listen.

That reminds of the sickest bet I ever made...with my ex-boss, when we were working in LA...he's from Chicago, where I now live, and a life-long Cubs fan. So, in like 1998 I bet him that all 3 Caray's would be dead before the Cubs won another World Series. I'm 1/3 of the way home and feeling pretty confident about the bet. I had no idea I'd move here when I made that bet. Oh, I'm also going to hell for this, but whatever.

The Rockies look like they can't be stopped.

Wow. I don't think I've seen a double-play slide like that get called, ever.

Speedracer, are you kidding????

He slid, then did a hop to basically dive into Matsui's legs! Complete no-brainer of a call.

I agree that it's a foul and should be called more often. I'm just saying I've never seen it get called unless the runner is Albert Belle and pops the guy in the jaw.

Ah, ok, got it.

I've seen it called a few times, but, it's not common.

This seemed pretty blatant to me.
