And That Happened

Cardinals 12, Nationals 4: Just sayin’, teams that lose their starting pitchers early due to injuries are 2-0 this postseason. If I’m the Giants or the A’s tonight, I hope for Ryan Vogelsong and Brett Anderson to get hurt. The Cardinals blast the Nats, with two homers from Carlos Beltran. About whom, some guy from Long Island is probably thinking right now, was merely trolling the Mets from 2005-2011.

Orioles 3, Yankees 2: If you’re a closer, it pays to have a short memory.  Random observation based on watching Jeter misplay a couple of balls during last night’s game and, for that matter, watching two decades of Yankees playoff games: Jeter could drive his car through a crowded school playground, mowing down three score students with multiple fatalities, and whoever is covering the story would talk about how, normally, he’s such a great driver. They’d then describe the tragedy in the passive voice with terms like “the car just went into the kids near the swing set, there. Tough break for Jeter, who normally does not commit multiple acts of vehicular homicide.”
