I'm loving it. I have like 30 Phillies fans on my Facebook friends list, and the range of emotions in the last 20 minutes was typical. They were hopeful, then suddenly condemned every player on the roster.

If Mike Schmidt were there, they would have cursed him.

This is the Networks worst nightmare, a Texas/SF World Series.

Personally, I would have liked to see the Phillies make it because I wanted to see the Rangers line-up vs. H20.

The network's worst nightmare, but as a true baseball fan, I am thrilled.

Haha, one of my good friends had this up, "Go Eagles."

That made me laugh good.

My favorite NL team, though they'd be the 4th place team in the Al East. At this point, luck means more than talent, and they were really lucky tonight. The decision to bring in Lincecum in the 8th was bizarre.

I think the network's worst nightmare would have been Twins/Reds, but congratulations to both the Giants and the Rangers.

As far as the networks are concerned, there's only about eight teams anyway. For me, knowing they're moaning and groaning over lost revenue they had already counted on will make this WS even more enjoyable.

True, but if you had ever seen a game in old Candlestick Park, you'd know what it is to long for the warmth of a good snow storm.

:D

Trust me, I know. Some of the coldest evenings I've ever spent were in the concrete press box at Candlestick in July and August. The Oakland-Alameda Coliseum across the bay was not much better.

This is a beautiful time of year in SF, though.

    • Yeah I know, I was referring to this blurb in MLBTR: I was just saying that once there was a lawsuit at all, I'm sure MLB was looking to get him out of the game.
    • Listen … I realize the game was never in jeopardy. But, you got exactly from this guy what his recent performance.    I’m shocked Elias and Hyde would waste time on these types of guys. Not much different that the guy… Ramirez I think that they picked up and then released earlier this season. We didn’t give up anything substantial and the must love him.    
    • Well, I already addressed that in my just-now comment, but when you know a guy is terrible, AND you know he’s not going more then an inning ANYWAY, you have another guy ready immediately.   There was nothing to learn, btw. He’s bad. Maybe he’s fine for the Rockies or White Sox, but not for a team looking at 100+ wins.  
    • You know he lost the discrimination case years ago, right?   There was no settlement.  The lawsuit was dismissed by the court for lack of merit.  
    • Chances are one of the reasons they can even think about the wildcard is because of their bullpen.  I doubt they weaken that looking for offense.  The first obvious move is to call up uber prospect James Wood who’s tearing up AAA.   If they truly are thinking wildcard they won’t subtract to add.  They’ll just add.
    • With respect, I totally disagree. Experience isn’t just what you’ve done, its what you haven’t done when given an opportunity. Looking at his body of work, it is littered with failed opportunity. there was literally nothing to suggest Viera would suddenly be other then he has been, and he wasn’t. As I said, it would have been fine to DFA him, stick him in the minors after he cleared waivers, and experiment a bit. And if he gets claimed, who cares, because he’s not the main part of the trade. And it wasn’t just adding Viera and his career -.3 WaR, but subtracting  Vespi, who in very limited MLB experience (35 innings) has a .3 WAR. Viera has 51 MLB innings(22 this season) with a career 1.7 WHIP, and 1.9 WHIP this season. There’s no reason to expect anything other than he did. So, you da man, Frobby, but we’re voting different parties on this one. Adding Viera quite literally made the bullpen worse, and probably was a huge slap in Vespi’s face to boot.
