i think the whole series depends on if the cardinals can win 1 of the first 2 on the road

if they do, its a best of 5 game series, with st louis having homefield advantage and Carpenter in line to pitch 2 of those games

id definitely take my chances with that

if the cards lose both in NY to start the series, then it will look grim

carpenter's a very good pitcher and all, but we're not talking about sandy koufax. he's hittable, beatable, and he is worse against lefties than he is against righties

Lidle was piloting and perished in the crash, according to ESPN/AP:

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2621860

Edit: Only the headline actually claims Lidle was killed; the article itself doesn't say so. The CNN article doesn't say so either. Still, doesn't look good.

I don't see that anywhere, and none of the other sites have reported it's been delayed.

well Keith Olbermann reported it on the radio, it appears he may have jumped the gun a bit, but still appears pretty likely it will be called

Considering the plane was registered to him, its safe to assume he was piloting. Prayers to his family, they can't contact them because they're on another flight.

Since the NL game is rained out, enjoy the AL one.

They were saying the same thing on ESPN earlier. I agree it's probably for the best.

mike and the mad dog are at shea right now and they've yet to get an official word and they're on the Mets radio network, and SNY NY, the mets TV network, has yet to make an announcement either... but i can tell ya it's absolutely pouring here right now and i don't see how they could ever play this game with the weather the way it is.

this means there will be 5 games in a row

the Cardinals only have 4 starters on their roster, and I'm guessing the Mets do too

which means someone has to start game 5 on short rest, or have it be a bullpen game. should be interesting

i just hope they make the decision soon 'cause it's an absolute nightmare trying to get into that stadium these days with half the parking lot closed because of the new stadium construction... if they know they're gonna cancel it, do it now so that these people don't battle the traffic all that way just to turn around.
