I might be able to post some scores and stuff, but I was going to be flipping back and forth between MNF and the game.

Carpenter and Pettitte, should be a good matchup.

Actually, you don't need either of us. There's this relatively new technology out. It's called the internet. You can get almost any information you need in a matter of moments. Here's a cool site I found that you may be interested in.

:harumph: I'll remember this. Ohh yes, I'll remember.
Oh I know. You have 2 X chromosomes. You forget nothing. It's a gender specific sort of curse. Case in point.

I had a roomie years ago that told an interesting story. Seems when he and his younger sister were getting ready for school one morning, she had been hogging up the bathroom, as females of the species tend to do. When she exited the bathroom, wrapped only in a towel, still dripping wet and wielding a hair brush, he grabbed the brush and smacked her firmly on her wet back. I'm guessing it hurt.

Skip ahead exactly 3 weeks. My friend comes home from school. He begins the long climb up a flight of stairs to the second floor of his home. Standing in plain view, and looking totally nondescript is his sister. As he takes the last step to reach the top, she kicks him in the chest, knocking him down the stairs, breaking his leg. In great pain and total disbelief, he asks, "Why did you do that!!!???" Her response?

"Remember when you hit me with that hair brush?"

And being able to hit a weak fly ball to left in Minute Maid park.
Well, there's that too. :p

I've taken in a few games at Enron/Minute Maid and whoever designed the thing smoked a lot of dope. You have a short shot to left, dead center is super deep with that silly ass ramp running up to the wall and hey, let's not forget the ingenious idea of having a flag pole in fair ground.

The seating is lousy too. You're crammed into your seat like a sardine in a can and unlike The K, anyone sitting in front of you can block your view without even trying.

I will say this though ... Minute Maid has some good eats.

The ramp is bad but the flag pole that's stuck in that same ramp in fair ground is just fugging stupid. Observe.

I mean, who the fug decided that having three flags behind the wall in center field was a bad idea and one of them needed put in fair ground?

Oh and their Mascot, Union Jack (a stupid rabbit dressed like a railroad engineer) and that train that blows its whistle, runs the length of the wall above left filed after a home run only to have to back up for the next homer, is stupid too.

I swear to God, once Edmonds walked, I felt in my gut Pujols was going to hit a bomb just like that. Honestly.

While I'm on that kind of streak, take Epping Forest 8-to-1 in the third race at Santa Anita tomorrow. Thank me later.

Maybe, but he was 0-4 on the night to that point, and you have to feel like Lidge had a better than average chance to get him out. The league bats right around .200 against him.

Well, 2 down already.

I knew if Edmonds was going to get on base, that Pujols was somehow going to either tie up or hit the home run.

And what WTI said, I would had pretty much give him a IBB and take my chances on a iffy Sanders. (his back injury that is, since I'm not sold that he's back to 100%)

Pujols is the person you do not want to mess with during clutch situations.

jettio
10-17-2005, 09:47 PM
I don't care who wins this series and might prefer the Astros, but you have to feel good for Pujols coming through like that.

Eckstein was like UL Washington keeping the inning alive for Brett in the 1980 ALCS, so that #5 could hit a bomb that silences the big crowd.

That shot is going to last the rest of the series. It has to effect the team. 1 strike and its a World Series and now you have to go to St. Louis where you lost 2 last year with Oswalt and Clemons pitching.

The ramp is bad but the flag pole that's stuck in that same ramp in fair ground is just fugging stupid. Observe.
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/5070/untitled181qb.jpg
I mean, who the fug decided that having three flags behind the wall in center field was a bad idea and one of them needed put in fair ground?


The ramp and flag pole are classic features of older ballparks. The ramp is a recreation of the terrace in Crosley Field. The terrace stretched from left field to center field along the wall. Old Yankee Stadium and Tiger Stadium used to have flag poles in play.

They used to make better baseball parks in the past and I have no problem with today's venues incorporating some of the features of these lost cathedrals.

You're never going to play center field in Houston, so why do you care so much? Anything that enhances the entertainment of the game is a great move in my book.

How does a team recover from being one strike away from the World Series and being crushed just like Pujols did that Lidge fastball? You have the former president, Nolan Ryan and 40K+ going nuts thinking your finally over the hump after 45 years and with one swing of the bat......well you know the rest

The Astros have a history of folding including last year when they were up 3-2 going to St. Louis and had Oswalt and Clemons to pitch the 2 games. How did that turn out for them? Red Sox fold after the Buckner gaf. Cards fold after Derkeingers call. Cubs fold after Barkman. Houston folded in 1980.

Theres a history of teams folding after something like this happens to them. If Houston comes back and wins they will have deserved it big time.

Closet Cardinal fan huh?:p

From espn. Sounds like the Cards were feeling a little dissed in the 9th inning:

And when plate ump Larry Poncino called the last one ball four, that man on deck, the menacing Mr. Pujols, was suddenly marching toward the box representing the winning run.

If there was a word that best described Minute Maid Park at that point, that word would be "nervous."

Those roars of ecstasy had softened into mumbles of worry. Those leaps of joy had turned into squirms of fear. One moment, the Cardinals had been peering into the other dugout, taking mental notes as the Astros players themselves began to celebrate. After all, they'd lost one game all year when they took a lead into the ninth. In fact, they'd lost one game like that since June 15, 2004. And they'd gone 136-1 in that situation since -- much of it thanks to the brilliance of Brad Lidge. So who could blame them for celebrating?

Well, the Cardinals could, for one. "We were looking over to their bench, and guys were high-fiving," Walker said. "A couple of guys were even dancing. But until that fat lady sings, you can't do that."

You especially can't do that when there's a chance Albert Pujols could get to hit. And now -- voila -- here he was.

duncan_idaho
10-18-2005, 10:22 AM
Big Red,

Gotta disagree with you on the slider thing... it didn't move much, but there was SOME lateral movement. That makes it a hanging slider...

And when you hang sliders to Pujols over the heart of the plate, the ball quickly travels about 450 feet, just as it did.

It will be interesting to see how the Astros respond... but who was surprised that they were acting like the game was already over when Lidge came in? They acted like they'd won the series the night before, after the double play.

Actually there is no uniform standard. Some stadiums measure from home plate to where the ball stops, other use technology to estimate how far the ball would've traveled had it not hit an object. I'm sure Houston's measurement was to the point where the ball hit the window. I'm 100% sure of it. Of course if that window was open that might have been a 475-500 foot homer. In St. Louis that's what it would've been measured at because they estimate the total distance if I am not mistaken.
