Holy....

Crap...

Funny thing in all this, at the beginning of the inning my roommate says:

"You know what would be an awesome way to end the game? Pujols at bat with two outs and two on. I don't care who wins, but that would be an awesome at bat"

That was as long a shot as I've seen in a long time. "Hey, let's throw Albert a hitable slider."

Seemed like a good idea at the time. This is what I LOVE about baseball. Astros were one strike away from the World Series. Then, Eckstein gets a hit, a walk to Edmonds, and then a meatball to Pujols. That's bad baseball, but fun to watch.

Oh, well, just as well to go back to STL, the Astros need to clinch and give Busch a proper farewell... Big grin

This series smacks of the '86 Angels/Red Sox playoff. Angels are within one strike of going to the Series, and Dave Henderson goes deep off Donnie Moore. Not saying the Stros will lose in 7, either Oswalt or the Rocket will pull it out.

Go Astros!

Just watched the home run on ESPN.

Dude just CRUSHED that baseball. What a majestic shot that was.

Damn!

Well, if Houston can't win game #6, I can't imagine them winning game #7 at Busch, even with the Rocket on the mound. They either end it in #6, or St. Louis will be off to the Series.

Heartbreak. Pure, complete, shattered, heartbreak. I'm having nightmares of last year's Red Sox-Yankees series.

Hindsight is 20/20, but they should have walked Pujols and pitched to Sanders.

The Good -- I have really good tickets for Wednesday & Thursday's games. Right between home plate and first base, about ten rows up.

The Bad -- Every radio station in town will now be playing "Redbird Fever" by Gretchen Wilson every 30 minutes from now until further notice.

The Ugly -- I am rooting for the White Sox all the way.

As a White Sox fan for many years I hope that the Red birds make it to the World Series.

Prediction:

Sox in 5.

Here's hoping!

My heart sunk. Being a Cubs fan, I know how they feel, although being 1 strike away and 3 outs away from the world series is a big difference.
I feel for all Astros Fans. I hope they win then the Sox can beat up on them.

I'm a huge Cards fan, but I'm also a realist. The Cards clearly have the momentum behind them for game six. A crushing loss accompanied with the Cards home crowd. But, there are two more games to play, and the Cards need to win them both. Not an easy task against the Astros.

To Astros fans, you guys have been a pain in the Cards a$$ for a while now, but, if the Astros do advance I'll be rooting for them. Class team, class fans. Not quite as good as Cardinal fans, but pretty close.  cheeky  I do have to rub in one thing though. Pujols had one great quote IMO. After the game he did say, "tonight, I messed with Texas".  bigthumbsup

1 out from elimination in the NLCS!

One strike away from playing in the Series, like Logan says.

UGH!

I watched the entire game - I think you could hear a pin drop in Minute Maid when Pujols cranked that one...

Oh well, 2 more chances for my Astros. Unfortunately, they are at Busch.

Yeah, just like last year when they HAD the momentum and a 3-2 lead going back to Busch.

Back to a real stadium, that has fans that don't need a closed roof (or any roof for that matter) or a bunch of stupid bee sounds played over the loudspeakers to know when to cheer.

And then they can get a force out at any base to win the game. As an Astros fan, I'll take Sanders instead of Pujols in that situation any hour, day, week, month, year, decade, or century of the millennium.

I feel for you Astros fans - I am, after all a Red Sox Fan. In 1986 we were one strike away from a World Series Championship, and to boot we had to lose to the freakin' METS.  gnasher
