He was willing to concede the tying run to avoid giving up the winning run. I wouldn't have done the same -- I think you have to play to win the game -- but the move is understandable.

I hate baseball, but a game 7 intrigues me. I think I'll watch the game tonight.

Wow. The Cardinals just rode that win last night straight to the title. The Rangers looked lifeless.

Winning a championship does not mean you are the best team in the league. This is one example.

Congrats to the Cardinals. What a well fought World Series.

I watched the game until the 7th inning stretch, and by that time the outcome seemed pretty certain. The Cardinals just rolled over the Rangers. I enjoyed the game which was the first baseball game I've watched since childhood.

+ 2, they weren't even the best team in their division. LaRussa is a damn good manager though, I have to say when they beat the Giants a few years ago he totally outmanaged Dusty Baker, The guy knows his shit. My concern is that Ron Washington may be becoming Buck Showalter, a guy who can get you there but he can't win it.

You know I could post in this thread without 1 Orioles reference.

I'm not that angry. The Rangers winning two pennants in a row is great. But why, oh why was Matt Harrison on the mound for game 7? Derek Holland could have been out there on full rest.

Uh...I'm a Royals fan. By mid-April I've long ceased to have hope for the season.
