The Cardinals Won Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS 10 Years Ago

Ten years ago today, the Cardinals won game 7 of the NLCS on the back of a Yadi Molina bomb in the 9th and a Waino curveball to close it out.

So let’s go back to a simpler time, when the Cubs still sucked and everything was right with the world.

I’m feeling better already. Continue reading “The Cardinals Won Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS 10 Years Ago”

Randal was the Angel’s first round pick in 2009. After spending most of 2014 the season up and down between AAA Memphis, Grichuk became a big part of the 2014 NLCS run and played in some valuable games down the stretch.

Your Superstitions Don’t Matter

It’s the top of the 9th, elimination game. You’re team is down 2 runs. You’ve got to do what you can. So you knock on the table twice, and toss back your 3rd, maybe 4th rally shot. Who’s counting? Suddenly with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the 9th, the ball gets launched in to right field. It’s tied.

Then in the 10th, the opposing team takes a 2 run lead. All is lost. Better up the rally shot pace if we’re going to get out of this one.
