If you are watching baseball and surfing…

Check out the New York Times liveblogging of the game.  And here’s Yogi Berra’s reaction to last night’s game:  “One of the most exciting, screwiest games I’ve seen. Yeah, it ain’t over it til it’s over but that one should’ve been over a while ago.”


Watching in the 5th.  Bases loaded and Molina is up.  They walked Freese.  How many guys in the Cardinals order are they afraid to pitch to now?

Hitting the sixth guy in the order with a pitch is probably not a good move for the reliever.  5-2 Cadinals!


7th Inning. Freese up with one out an a runner on first.   Will they pitch to him?  Sorta.  Ball 3. 3 and 0.

From the New York Times liveblog:  “A overserved gentleman several rows in front of the press box loudly chimes in on God Bless America, exceedingly off-key. This could be a long night for the local police if the Cardinals win this.”

6-2 in the Seventh!  Molina’s second hit, second RBI, right up the middle.

    Way to go, Cards! Well done. And Lance Lynn gets a World Series championship ring.

    This team was, indeed, a team of destiny.

    And LaRussa goes out on a high note.

    Yep. If he’d managed a half-season next year he’d have been almost certain to pass John McGraw and have the 2nd most wins of any manager in major league history.

    McGraw and LaRussa both managed for about thirty-three years, but McGraw (in an area with shorter seasons) had a significantly better winning percentage. Connie Mack, on the other hand, is over a thousand wins and losses ahead of 2nd place on both wins and loss lists, because the man managed for over 50 years. And had more losses than wins, which you can survive more easily when you’re the owner.
