Game 6 of the World SeriesPosted Thursday, October 27, 2011, at 11:09 AM
No live blog tonight since I will be covering a football game. My pinch-hitter (Jennifer, my wife) is also unavailable to blog so I'll leave the comments open so we'll pull a "Coffee Talk" and you can talk amongst yourselves.
Here's some topics:
Is the Bullpen Phone-gate a smoke screen that Cardinals manager Tony La Russa used to deflect talk of his team's Game 5 meltdown or do we give him too much credit?
As a Cardinals fan do you feel better down 3-2 in a series than up 3-2 given the history of the team in the World Series? St. Louis has been up 3-2 in a Series 7 times, being forced to a Game 7 six times and losing three of those Series -- 1968 vs. the Tigers, 1985 vs. the Royals and 1987 vs. the Twins. In 1967, Boston forced a Game 7 but ran into Bob Gibson who hit a homer and pitched a three-hitter and in 1964 the Yankees forced a Game 7 but lost to Gibson.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals have trailed 3-2 in a Series five times and rallied for four titles -- 1926 against the Yankees, 1934 against the Tigers, 1946 against the Red Sox, and 1982 against the Brewers.
Which team did the rain help more?
Who is the Series MVP for each team so far? (Hint, for the Rangers it starts with N-A-P).
Enjoy the game, I won't.
