NLDS Thread: Cards vs Phillies

Postby dmiles2186 » Fri Sep 30, 2011 8:47 am

This isn't a Game Day Thread, so don't jump all over me for starting a day early. I figure a playoff series deserves a whole thread.

Lohse v Halladay in Game 1. The Birds are the only team to have a winning record against the Phillies this season, is what I read. They were 6-3.

We know the Phillies hold the pitching advantage. But if the Cards pitching can hold the Phillies offense in check, they could make some noise. It's a short series, and if the Cardinals can take at least 1 of the first 2 games in Philly, the pressure then completely falls on the Phillies.

I'm not one for predictions though. Like I posted on Facebook after they clinched the Wild Card spot, anything from here is gravy. I'd at least like to see them win 1 playoff game this go-around.

And hopefully Matt Holliday's nutsack doesn't take such a beating this time around.

And apparently, Carp has been moved up to pitch game 2.

Yep, such great news IMO. There's a Cards/Braves/Dodgers forum I post on, and most there don't like him on short rest. But, I LOVE it.

Got a W and now they're headed back to St. Louis. Whoo! Garcia and Hamels in Game 3.

That was a big win. How often does Cliff Lee squander a 4-0 lead in the 2nd inning?

He was 94-1 when his team gives him a four-run lead before yesterday.

The Cards are in the playoffs. By all accounts, they probably shouldn't be because Atlanta shouldn't have folded up the way they did in September. The Cards are still playing, in spite of being down 2-1, and they beat Roy Halladay. Balls? I don't think so.

So you weren't bummed when the Blues were swept in '08-'09?

Do I think the Cards will win? No. But tonight was a winnable game. I've said that everything after they made the postseason was gravy. But I can still cheer for a win. Cardinals could have and probably should have won that game tonight. Too many men left on base.

The season rests on the arm of Edwin Jackson.

Now doesn't that make you feel warm inside?

Hopefully Don Tony won't let it rest on his bat like he did Garcia's yesterday. He was the final out 3 times and left 5 men on base. He has never gone deep into games I think not pinch hitting for him the last time with 2 on was a mistake. IMO.

I think I'm in the minority, but I liked TLR's decision there. The decision I hated from the second he made it was walking Ruiz. At the least, they should have just pitched around him to see if he would chase something and get himself out.

I know that Jaime frequently only goes ~6 innings, but that's mainly because he isn't efficient with his pitch count. Yesterday, he was on his game and had a relatively low PC. So, I think trying to get another inning (or more) out of him is better than going to the bullpen.

I agreed with it as well, Garcia was still bringing it.

By my count, the Cards are still in it. Of course I was bummed when the Blues were swept. The Cards have neither been swept nor eliminated yet.
