    Its rainy and windy and the temps are dropping here in SW Indiana so I am NOT going to the Jasper @ Washington football game tonight. Besides, Jasper will blow them out, probably 42-0 or something like that.

    So, that means that me and Whitey Herdog will be tuned in to the NLCS. The Doppler Radar shows all clear in St. Louis although its going to be cool tonight, around 55 at game time. Upper 50s for the tomorrow afternoon game. We may very well see cool temps this entire series.

    At first pitch I will be having a 7×50 Palma Real cigar and after its done it will be time to have a bowl of Hungry Man’s Sirloin Burger soup, some Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies, and then a chocolate shake. And then another 7×50 Palma Real cigar for the late innings. Then after the game probably an episode of Barnaby Jones. And who knows, maybe ANOTHER 7×50 Palma Real cigar whilst I watch Barnaby.

    Here are the Umpires for this NLCS. At least for Game One:

    HP – Mike Muchlinski
    1B – Chris Conroy
    2B – Bill Miller (CC)
    3B – Phil Cuzzi
    LF – Chad Fairchild
    RF – Fieldin Culbreth

    Replay, Games 1 & 2: Chris Guiccione
    Replay, Games 3-7: Mike Muchlinski

    As a side note, from what I have seen Phil Cuzzi is a terrible balls/strikes umpire.

    We are getting off topic here. Lets get back to the original topic.

    The success we have had in the playoffs now over-shadows some of the season disappointments. Like the 2011 World Series run, that made me forget all about Brandon Phillips walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 9th at Cincinnati off of Salas. Boxscore below.

    The Martinez boys act like goofs. That is irrefutable. It cant be denied.

    Carlos Martinez has never lived up to expectations. Is that because he’s got that goofy attitude and not the serious Bob Gibson type attitude?

    Jose Martinez had his worst year at the plate this year. Is that because he’s got that goofy attitude and not the serious Bob Gibson type attitude?

    I guess its Baseball 2019. But I don’t like it. Its all over the game. Gold chains, rings, jewelry, tattoos, hair colors/styles, etc. All the celebrating on the basepaths, showing up other teams, fans, pitchers, etc. And the Martinez boys are our main culprits. Its not – NOT – Cardinal Baseball.

    gscottar,
    We had rain this morning, about a half inch so far. The Doppler Radar shows a bunch more headed our way. Jasper will blow out Washington probably around 42-0 so I think I will stay home and watch the NLCS.

    And speaking of rain in St. Louis, the guy on the MLB Network last night said the rain is supposed to be out of St. Louis this afternoon and the game will be played. The radar shows most of the rain already out of the St. Louis area.

    Its going to be another Yankees/Astros ALCS. Houston with a 6-1 lead in the last of the 8th. Should be quite entertaining.

    As a Redbird fan I am hoping for a Yankees ALCS title.

    Forecast is for rain in the St. Louis area tomorrow. Will it be moved out by game time? Here in SW Indiana we are forecast for some much needed rain tomorrow as well. That might prevent me from going to the Jasper @ Washington football game tomorrow night and watching Game 1 of the NLCS.

    14NyquisT,
    You keep saying all of these teams aren’t that good. And you seem to be right in your assessments. Keep up the good work!

    Pugs apparently now has two prognosticators he can rely on.

    Joe Kelly gives it up in the 10th. A grand slam to Howie Kendrick.

    7-3 Nats in the 10th.

    Washington vs. St. Louis in the NLCS barring a major miracle.

    Joe Martinez, I mean, Joe Kelly, just put the Nationals into the NLCS. He gives up a walk, double, intentional walk, and then a grand slam to Howie Kendrick.

    7-3 Nationals in the top of the 10th.

    Kershaw just gave up back to back homers in the 8th to Rendon and Soto and the Nationals have tied the Doyers 3-3 in the 8th.

    Its a tossup from here folks.

    Pugs, I did some jogging tonight too after the game. I didn’t do two miles though. Walking or running. But I was huffing and puffing when I was done. Then I had to let Whitey Herdog outside so she could run around a little bit.

    Now after hitting the showers after the Redbirds win, then watching Ball State hit a two run homer in the 1st off of Strasburg to put the Doyers up 2-0, I am getting hungry. I don’t know why, but I have a craving for biscuits & gravy. I might just make some sausage gravy. I don’t have any biscuits so a piece of bread will have to do.

    And I am going to the Gun Club tomorrow and get some shooting practice in with the Walther PPK.

    Yes BrockLou, against the Braves in Game One of the NLDS. Will Clark walked in to talk to him and told him that wasn’t one of those “Pitch-Back” spring/netting things back there.

    Pugs?
    Didn’t somebody mention that there would be a lot of runs scored in this game today? And somebody said to take it to the bank and Vegas?

    Win, lose, or draw I think 2019 has turned out a little better than what most were hoping for. You posters agree or disagree?

    I sort of figured the Brewers and Cubs would both win around 95 games and fight it out for the division title. I was just hoping the Redbirds could win around 90 and challenge for a wild card spot. And here we are, division champs and in a deciding game of the NLDS.

    Looks like the Rays could possibly force a deciding Game 5 as they jumped on Verlander for three runs in the 1st. 3-0 Tampa Bay after one inning.

    A long way to go in this one though. Tommy “I-Cant-See” Pham a dinger in the 1st.

    I never ever understood how Sammy Sosa kept from being plunked all the time with that little hop skip and a step he did when he hit a homerun. Talk about showing the pitcher and other team up. I guarantee you if me or Pugs would have been on the hill the next time he came up he would have gotten one right in the ribs.

    The Braves aren’t all that happy with Acuna either. Watching a long flyball and then loafing to 1st base seems to be the main reason why.

    I agree with what you say about Albies.

    Good point on Thomas. He, Arozarena, or possibly O’Neill could end up with the most playing time in Center next year unless Bader learns to hit at a .260-.275 clip.

    BikeMike,
    Cant believe you are using batting average. That is so 1960s and 1970s. All that matters is Bader has a FGIT of 4.32 and a BAPID of .338 and a WRA of 2.18. He is so valuable.

    Just like some on here used to say that Tyler Greene was valuable.

    So that means Kershaw vs. Wainwright in the NLCS Game 1.

    Looks like this one stands a good chance of going to a deciding Game 5 as well. Nationals a 5-1 lead in the last of the 6th and Scherzer seems on his game.

    I like watching the Angels play late at night. I wont mind pulling for Joe’s team to win one little bit. Maddon managing Pujols. Maybe Albert will have one last renaissance year, say about .315/44/122.
