Endy Chavez!

Two seasons on the line: That catch was positively thrilling.

No youtube link already Jon? ;)

What happened? My wife's soap opera came on and we only have on tv in the house. :(
vr, Xei

The DP was the icing on the cake, too.
Everybody forgets that Mays' Wertz catch resulted in a double play when he threw back in.

2 - Hey, no TV talk here, Xei. :)

Chavez robbed Scott Rolen of what would've been a two-run homer, then doubled a brain-dead Edmonds up at 1B.

Xei, did you see the Gary Matthews catch this summer? Endy did not quite get that level of elevation but I think this game situation is just a little more important...

After that inning it officially feels like a Game Seven.

Cardinal fans are angry at Scott Rolen for refusing to take himself out of the lineup when a shoulder injury affected his on-field performance. Cardinal fans to this day hate J.D. Drew for being too much of a sissy to play through injuries.

You do the math.

Does Suppan have more beard than the entire Met lineup combined?
2006-10-19 19:48:13
9.   Terry A
Valentin and Lo Duca have some five-o'clock shadow going, but Suppan's facial hair wins this round.

Next battle: Is that mole in front of Beltran's ear bigger than David Eckstein?

Lest some injustice be committed in the next few innings (like one of these teams actually winning), perhaps we can just name the Tigers champions by acclamation.

Fine by me. Let's get this (offseason) party started!
2006-10-19 20:21:04
12.   trainwreck
The Mets may think badly of Heilman now, time to strike!

Ok, the Cardinals are going to the World Series. Back to the Clippers/Lakers game.

How desperate does an "actor" have to be to accept a gig in an erectile dysfunction or enlarged prostate commercial...?
2006-10-19 20:28:39
15.   D4P
Valentin and curveballs don't get along so well
2006-10-19 20:31:51
16.   Uncle Miltie
If Floyd bunts, then Randolph needs to be fired
2006-10-19 20:32:55
17.   D4P
That was pretty much the opposite of a bunt
2006-10-19 20:33:26
18.   Uncle Miltie
That was a ball...
2006-10-19 20:33:29
19.   Jon Weisman
14 - For the money you get, we'd all pretty much be so "desperate."
2006-10-19 20:35:46
20.   D4P
Floyd should have bunted...
2006-10-19 20:37:00
21.   D4P
That curveball is annoying me
2006-10-19 20:38:31
22.   Jon Weisman
Reyes hit it square.
2006-10-19 20:38:54
23.   Jon Weisman
Lo Duca up to save their season.
2006-10-19 20:38:58
24.   D4P
A classic moment here, with Lo Duca at the plate with the game on the line...
2006-10-19 20:38:58
25.   Uncle Miltie
I've gotta root against the Gambler here
2006-10-19 20:41:40
26.   trainwreck
I wanted a strike call on that.
2006-10-19 20:41:49
27.   D4P
And the book is still out on Heart and Soul
2006-10-19 20:42:17
28.   Brendan
that was a stirke on Lo Duca. No clue what the ump was doing there.
2006-10-19 20:42:21
29.   xaphor
That was a very Drew like at bat by Mr. Heart & Soul.
2006-10-19 20:42:35
30.   Vishal
now that lo duca didn't make the final out, i want beltran to get the walkoff and stun the cards.
2006-10-19 20:43:52
31.   Brendan
how do you walk lo douca with beltran behind him.
2006-10-19 20:44:01
32.   D4P
Darn you, curveball!
2006-10-19 20:44:16
33.   Uncle Miltie
Get on the phone now Ned! Beltran should be on the trading block.
2006-10-19 20:44:21
34.   trainwreck
That should have happened to Lo Duca.
2006-10-19 20:44:34
35.   xaphor
Lets Go Tigers! :)
2006-10-19 20:44:40
36.   Steve
That result is extraordinarily satisfying.
2006-10-19 20:44:45
37.   trainwreck
Beltran and Heilman for Ethier!
2006-10-19 20:45:52
38.   trainwreck
Well I got half of my World Series prediction right.
2006-10-19 20:46:22
39.   Vishal
haha, or not.
2006-10-19 20:47:38
40.   Brendan
Now a Tiger sweep of the Cards and this post season will end up not bad at all.
2006-10-19 20:49:06
41.   D4P
Yes, a Tiger sweep of the Cards would be very nice indeed
2006-10-19 20:49:27
42.   joekings
Games like this are why I love baseball. Now let's go Tigers!
2006-10-19 20:53:09
43.   Jon Weisman
Sweep? Come on. Seven games! Root for more drama!
2006-10-19 20:56:03
44.   D4P
I'll go along with the seven games idea as long as you can promise that the Tigers win Game Seven...
2006-10-19 21:30:24
45.   Brendan
Guarantee me a 2002 soul crushing ending for the Cards and i'm with the 7 game program
