Ok, so the Mets won round 1...

In a 7 game series that isnt' shit..seriously..it's not.

But I am rooting for the NL leader in wins..why you ask?

Because I can not root for the team that knocked my Pad's out of the playoffs..very simple no?

Tommy Glavine was one of the best..in his prime. The only thing he has going for him now is that he has been in the playoffs a million times..He's been to the big show.

ok..not a million..but close..He is a great pitcher to have on your team when everyone gets the fucking jitters in the playoffs becuase they have never been there.Glavine has been there with the Braves..alot. And he can tell them what its like. His clubhouse presence matters at this point. He doesnt' get the jitters..he loves this time of year. He lives for this time of year. Its what the whole fucking ball of wax is about...the playoffs..

And Tommy only allowed 4 hits..fuck me running..thats low..I would kill for Tommy to have been on the Pads..Hes fucking 40 years old for the love of god..give him his due ok? This is the best of the best...suck it and deal.

Since most of the Mets have been with the friggin Dodgers at some point in the last two years..god knows I love em because they are no longer with the Dodgers..fuck the Dodgers. fuck em hard with a big ol pole. Mota was with the Dodgers last year and they had no faith in him. So Fuck the Dodgers....who is the getting tee times?

And as for Weaver....that fucking space cadet...he only gave up 4 hits too. But the difference was the 2 runs he handed them. Glavine gave up zero runs..This time of year..every run counts.Besides..Weaver is a mench..a fucking mench..he is either good or bad.no in between.

But the difference tonight was The Cards don't have a pitching staff...its a fact jack. Their closer..Izzy is out..the rest of the pitchers depend on the offense getting some runs to cover their ass..yeah yeah yeah..Carp is last years Cy winner..bfd..he can't pitch every damn game.

So my money is on the Muts..god bless those former Dodgers,every one.

Glavine is a kick ass pitcher - I loved watching him while he was with the Braves.

Bruce said...

Glavine was money last night, no doubt about it. And the Dream Weaver, except for that one pitch, pitched a hell of a game. Bad baserunning and great defense by the Mets also had a hand in the win, too. But unlike Albert, I will give all the credit to Glavine that he deserves.
BTW...the Cards bullpen has not allowed a run in the post-season yet. Just sayin...

dusty said...

Did someone cattle prod the bullpen? Why have they turned around B?

Glavine was great w/the Braves..but everyone gets old.

Bruce said...

Who knows... the amazing thing is that, except for Looper, LaGenius has used mostly his rookies and one 2nd-year guy. Johnson, Kinney, and Thompson are all 25; Wainwright is 24. Very out of character for him...
Oh, don't discount Suppan at home; he was 7-2 with an ERA 2 points lower than on the road.

Bruce said...

oops, sorry for the double post. damn blogger...

dusty said...

Its ok B..I removed the double post.

I don't care how good your pen is..I am still rooting for the Muts. ;p

Bruce said...

I wouldn't have it any other way... ;-)

Bruce said...

Round two goes to Godzilla and the boys..

dusty said...

Excuse me but Godzilla is Hideki Matsui's nickname..always has been.

There is your one game..rejoice!

;p

Bruce said...

So(no pun intended), he can sue me....:p

The Brat Pack only threw 51 pitches tonight, while the Mutts pen threw 112.
That could be huge..

dusty said...

I don't care how many pitches each side tossed..it was a friggin slug fest.

Both pitching staffs looked bad imho.
