Maybe the Brave fans need to chant louder.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

I managed to talk myself into rooting for the Braves this series. I'll surely root for the Cardinals in the next, whoever they play.

I guess root is a little strong. Discover a mild preference for. Or better, find fewer objections to.

I can't bring myself to root for the Cardinals.  Not that I mind any of *them*, but  I have a friend who is a huge Cardinals fan, and while he is a good guy, smart, reasonable baseball fan, his wife is insufferable.  She's the kind that when you go watch a game at the bar with them, she's decked out in feathers and sequins and yells in your ear every time a Cardinal draws a walk. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

I've been rooting for the Nationals and was not actively rooting against the Braves.

Of course, that'll mean a Dodgers-Cardinals NLCS in 3... 2... 1...

Well stop rooting for the Astros!

Molina is a Major League douchebag.  But he's a helluva player.

Yes and yes.

Hope he and Chipper's plaques are on the men's room floor in Cooperstown.

I don't like the Cardinal or Dodger or National or Yankee teams.

McCann announced his retirement after the game.

Tip of the cap for a fine career and a heartfelt thank you for his 2 years as an Astro.

I like the Cardinal strategy of scoring 10 runs in the first inning. The Astros should steal it.

They just bumped about three seconds of The Toadie's Possum Kingdom as they went to break in the LA vs DC game.

Toad the Wet Sprocket would have been more appropriate for the LA crew.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Holy shit.  Kershaw gives up solo HRs on back-to-back pitches in the top of the 8th.  Tie game.

Getting interesting!
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

The awful things happening to the favorites today and tonight are not making me feel better about tomorrow...
When the Clark is dead, Spack will eat his spleen. Before he dies, Spack will put his posts under the knife so the Clark will see his threads wiped out forever...

In the bottom of the 9th, Will Harris Smith drives the ball to deep right, flips the bat... and it's a routine catch on the warning track.

To extra innings!
