    At least the Cardinals are winning at the moment.

    I wasn't watching because I was busy so I didn't see the grand slam live. :3

    In other news, the Cardinals are still winning.

    technically its the second :P

    The Grand Slam Single is a reference to the hit that ended Game 5 of the 1999 National League Championship Series between the New York Mets and one of their biggest rivals, Atlanta Braves. The game was played on October 17, 1999 at Shea Stadium.
    The game was tied 2-2 going into the top of the 15th inning, until Mets pitcher Octavio Dotel gave up an RBI triple to Keith Lockhart, giving the Braves a 3-2 lead.
    In the bottom of the 15th inning, the Mets loaded the bases against Braves relief pitcher Kevin McGlinchy. Mets catcher Todd Pratt drew a bases loaded walk, tying the score 3-3.
    The next batter was Mets third baseman Robin Ventura. Ventura crushed the 2-1 pitch over the wall in right-center for an ostensible grand slam, winning the game for the Mets and driving the Mets players and fans into a frenzied celebration. Ventura, however, never reached second base as Todd Pratt, the runner who was on first, picked up Ventura in celebration. Subsequently, Ventura was mobbed by his teammates, never finishing his trot around the bases. Because he failed to touch all four bases, the hit was officially scored a single. Roger Cedeno, the runner on third at the time, was ruled the only runner to have crossed home plate before the on-field celebration began and the Mets were awarded a 4-3 victory. Thus, Ventura was only credited with a single and one RBI. As a result, there had never been an official walk-off grand slam in MLB postseason history until Nelson Cruz hit one to allow the Texas Rangers to beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series on October 10, 2011.

    That has to be the dumbest ruling I ever heard!

    I fear impressionable people will think that it's a dumb ruling so let's just make it clear really quickly (not targeted at Malanu or The WatersGreatGuardian because they're joking): It's stated right in the rules that a player has to touch all of the bases in order to score a run for it to count. There's a reason why people who hit home runs have to round the bases.

    Anyway, the Cardinals won. There is still hope for a Cardinals/Tigers World Series.

    Well... since I predicted a Brewers/Tigers World series, it seems that that prediction is doomed to fail. I don't see the Rangers losing 4 out of 5, and the Cardinals look hot right about now.

    I predicted that too, though my predictions are always wrong.

    That's disappointing. I thought he would be a big part of the offense, but I guess he's just a little slow right now.

    Theo Epstein is a coup for the Cubs. Hiring him is the largest single step in the right direction that the organization has made in years.

    He sure went downhill in his signings this past year. 82 million for Lackey? 142 million for Crawford? 12 million for Jenks?

    There is something I'm still unclear on, did the Red Sox fire Terry Francona?
