Now THAT’S a World Series Game

What an unbelievable game we just saw unfold in game 6.

Man, those Cards kept getting up off the mat to battle back.

Damn, Texas must be in agony after being 1 strike away from the championship… In back-to-back innings!!!!

David Freese became an October legend first the 2 strike 2 out bottom of the 9th 2 run triple to tie the game, only to be outdone by his walk-off bomb to dead CF in the 11th.

INSANE. I can’t only imagine what that would be like if the Mets were in that game… Although I have a bad feeling we’d be the Rangers in this scenario.

Can Texas possibly win a game 7 after the emotional drain of game 6? 

I say Yes. So long as they don’t get rocked in the first couple of innings Game 6 will seem like a distant memory by the time the 5th or 6th inning rolls around.

I’m still rooting for St Loo but I’m just happy we’re getting a game 7 to close out the baseball season.

Can’t wait!

    That will go down in history as one of the best of all World Series games ever. What a game!

    Epic game. Glad I stayed awake (ish).

    As the Freese ball cleared the fence Joe Buck said “and we will see you all tomorrow night.” That one’s been used before - anyone?

    I am not sure whether to be glad that he honored his Father with that line, or depressed taht he couldn’t come up with a better one. I think I will be charitable(as I don’t think he very good) and be glad that he honored his Dad.

  4. IrishMike Says:

    Luis - correct and I have to believe he honored his dad. It was a great line 20 years ago (in a staggeringly similar situation, 11th inning walkoff solo HR to force a WS game 7) and if it worked then it will work now.

    I actually like Buck more then most. Also I give both Buck and McCarver credit for shutting up for a long time after Buck’s call to just let us watch and listen to a moment that needed no embellishment. They should do that more often.

    Sloppy game for six innings…epic battle after that!…I have never seen a pitcher get pinch hit for by another pitcher!

    To bad most of the good stuff happened after midnight on the East coast…

    That was so great a game that it could have turned a casual fan into a baseball fan.

    Unreal game. Cards just would not lose, though Rangers did great job of helping them.

    Ron Washington should be fired before tonight’s Game 7 for:
    -Not putting Chavez in as defensive replacement in bottom 9th. He and most other good OFs catch Freese’s drive
    -Taking Feliz out and putting in Darren Oliver for the 10th. I still can’t believe he did that to get lefty-lefty matchups. Those reserve lefties must’ve been dancing jigs when they saw Feliz and his 98mph heater was done.
    -Bringing in Oliver for the lefty-lefty as opposed to CJ Wilson (who was available as evidenced by his warming up later) or Matt Harrison (who he stubbornly decided would be his Game 7 starter despite him getting blistered in Game 3 and Derek Holland nearly pitching a CG SO in Game 4). You need three outs to win the WS and you bring in a soft-tossing journeyman? REALLY?
    -Getting confused and then burning both his last competent pitcher (Feldman) by putting up a hitter (German) who had no chance of getting a hit and therefore helping team score a run.
    -Just being an overall buffoon and letting LaRussa off the hook for his Game 5 idiocy and subsequent lying about it.

    As for Game 7:
    -I’ll be shocked if the Rangers score against Chris Carpenter.
    -I’ll be shocked if the Rangers get out of the 1st inning down less than 3 runs.
    -I’ll be shocked if the Rangers lose by less than 5 runs.

    I hate LaRussa but his team came through time and time again and will deserve to win the WS. And it has been one of the most entertaining ones I’ve ever seen.
