Yes.  Come suffer with me.  Embrace the inevitable let down.  Give in.

Preesh!  Need to pick this up and not fly back to Brew Town.  I'm also pulling for the Giants big time, simply because we are competitive with them.  They're a better team, but we absolutely don't match up at all with Dodgers pitching.  But, first things first.

As cold as the Dodgers bats have been the last two weeks, you may want to rethink that. 

Absolutely will not root for Houston or the RedSox, so unless Tony can whip up some magic, I'll be rooting for the Senior Circuit.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Freeman puts one in the seats to send the Braves to the NLCS.  Lucked out getting the Brewers to start the playoffs.  Gets real from here no matter who we face.  Would love a Braves/Sox match up if the Karma Gods smile on us.

Cards just fired Mike Shildt.  In three full seasons as manager, he went to the post season each time.

WTF???  Okay, you follow them closely and I only see them from AFAAARRR.  How do you fire someone who took a team from basically being out of it with less than 1/4 or 345/515ths of the season left, they go on a 17 game win streak, make the playoffs and barely lose to what may be the best team in the game?  Is there more going on?  I mean, the Cards were a better than average team this year, but honestly, I thought they had less overall talent than they've had in a while.

"Philosophical differences" as the official reason.

But...  I think being out of it less than 1/4 of the season is part of it.  A miracle 17 game winning streak to make the playoffs.  I think bringing in Arenado, and teaming him with Goldie, you expect better than hanging with the Cubs until after the all star break (no offense, Buzzy).

I would have been content if he ditched the hitting coaches - Maybe Mo told him to get rid of Jeff Albert, and Shildt told him no.

Arenado hit .255 with 34 HR and 105 RBI.  His production and average were somewhat down overall because....geez, I dunno'....maybe he wasn't playing 81 games in Coors Field.  But name one team that wouldn't kill for that in the lineup.  Forget that he's badass at the hot corner.

Goldy was spot on with his career average and production.  .294 with 31 and 99. The man earned his $$$.  Again, looking at it from the outside, other than those two, there was nothing about that lineup that struck fear in anyone.  At least not going into the season.  Molina is still the best back stop in the game, but let's face it, he and Matt Carpenter and Waino and Lester are a combined 853 years old. Obviously, Wainwright exceeded all expectations.

I guess my point is, I was amazed at the job Schlitz did.  As you said, it may be the reported "philosophical differences".   But from a managerial standpoint, fuck that.

Sports radio saying it's because Management didn't see Reyes as the future closer, while Shildt apparently did.

So management hires a manager to manage, but management decides to manage for the manager.  Got it!

Well, Snags, if Atlanta wants it, guess they gotta go through the defending champs and earn it.
