Baseball Over Here

My Morning in ExileI experienced my first symptoms of playoff fever this morning. I'm going to try to rest and take fluids, but I don't think I can fight it off much longer . . .
I'm sure my playoff fever will subside somewhat when I see Dice-K throw over to first base seven times, come set, step off the rubber, step back on, come set, and throw back over to first base seven more times while playing the Angels.

Dice-K- he must have learned that from Andy. Put them together for an ALCS and you have a guaranteed 6 hour game.

When did the NHL start playing in South Carolina?

I’ll comment on the Mauer thing over here, since I don’t think I’ll get the level of discourse over at NBC.
If Mauer was confident he could figure out the sign sequence, shouldn’t he have stayed at second on that fly ball? He’s still in scoring position and he has a chance to help the batter. I guess the chances were pretty high that Laird and Verlander would have figured something out and changed up their signals. And of course from second base, Mauer can’t score on a wild pitch. But the chances of those are slim compared to the help he could provide by stealing signs.

Let’s see…Jeter was a thief yesterday, Mauer is a thief today…who is tomorrow’s thief? Let’s give the NL equal opportunity here. How about Pujols tomorrow?

@YFL - After awhile, I assume, it wasn’t even fun to decide whether the hawkers were trying to channel Billy Mays or Vince Offer. It’s enough to make you look for Grandma’s Little Helper - not the one that goes in the microwave, but the bottle she kept in the freezer…

If we make it retroactive to Sunday Clint Barmes can be the NL thief for his “catch”.

I am thinking we go back to A-Rod and Tejada. They are probably still tipping.

I start reading the comments over at NBC, quickly feel nauseous, and stop. The Garcia effect, that’s what they call it.
