    Yes, he was. I wish they had more power southpaws on the roster. It seems that the Cards have trouble with left handed pitchers.

    The good thing is that now both Ortiz and Napoli can play again.

    I've already awarded the MVP to David Ortiz no matter what happens.

    There is a direct correlation between Cardinal hitters whining about called strikes and hitting like kitty cats. Molina and Holliday got it started. Now even Matt Carpenter, who hasn't complained about a single call all year and here he is, on the biggest stage, whimpering. Suck it up, Cardinals, and hit the baseball.

    Carpenter's success all year has been predicated on plate discipline. Double digit pitch plate appearances were common. In 4 plate appearances last night he faced only 18 pitches total. He has been totally off his game the entire post season. He, Beltran and Craig have the best batting eyes on the team and really work the count. Molina and Holliday both usually just come up and swing away.

    I learned a few things about baseball rules last night that I didn't know. Now that it's the next day, I can only remember one. Apparently a foul after two strikes when you are bunting is a third strike and out. Is that what happened to Lester last night? Whatever it was, I was not aware of the rule.

    P.S. I hope Boston can hit against Wacha tonight. That guy is somethin'.

    Thanks. I love baseball, wished I would have discovered it when I was a kid. I was raised in football culture. Baseball didn't get much attention. My grandmother was a fan, but that was about it. I'm the only one at my job who is even watch the WS, nobody to talk to about it here.

    I've given up on McCarver and Buck. I listen to the WEEI play by play through an internet connection. There may be a full 2 minute delay between the action and the call, but at least you get substantive analysis. McCarver and Buck talk about baseball as if they were explaining it to a 5 year old, which is funny since MLB has eliminated 5 year olds from watching the games with the ridiculously late start times.
