Haha, I think I should quit with the predictions regarding this series.

I probably won't even watch the game tomorrow. I've got plans to drink cheap wine and watch scary movies tomorrow night.

I switched this thing off after Texas got back to back shots in the 7th. Glad I switched back for the bottom of the 9th.

I saw that last week...he also put $250 on them to win the NLCS at 500/1 and already has won $125K, he's having a good October.


Enjoy game 7, should be fun.

If he's gonna let it ride instead of hedging, he's a much better man than I.

With 125K in pocket already its a lot easier to let it ride...though he could get a nice price on Texas tonight vs Carpenter for a hedge.

The biggest question will be how Carpy handles short rest...historically its not a wise move.

Sinkerball pitcher pitching on short rest, leaving everything up. Does not bode well for STL.
