NLCS Predictions New York v.s. St.Louis

66 posts in this topic

boy we must be the 1st 2 people to vote so you can tell who I voted for. I know your a Cards fan but I think if NY can shut down Albert they will win the series but that is asking alot.

Yeah I voted for my heart naturally but I am a realist too the Cards could be easily swept in this, heck 21 out of 22 ESPN analysts picked San Diego over St. Louis so there you go... Just gotta play the games now...

Nice Walters CNY,

I wonder if you will get any comments from Sled Neck? Good luck to your Birdies tonight.

Nice fish Tim. I will take the Cards. Albert will lead them to the promised land.

Actually, I know very little about the NL, but you can't predict what will happen. Who here thought that Detroit would do much in the playoffs the way they ended the season? Right now they look like the odds on favorites they way they are playing.

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed the waldos. As far as my redbirds if they miraculously can pull off this NLCS I can't bear the thought of them getting swept in the W.S. yet again and the way Detroit is playing regardless if it's the Mets or Cards I still don't think that they have remotely enough to beat Detroit. Leyland can do nothing wrong case in point with Casey at the bat down with a calf injury some 10 yr. triple AAA 20K guy steps in and picks up where they left out. here playing some amazing ball right now. I truly believe it's Detroit in the end and why not they play real baseball in the AL Central...

I agree with you CNY,

The Kitties look earily like my beloved Pale Hose of last year. They start the season like a house on fire with great starting pitching, great relief and huge hitters, then go into the dumper the second half of the season, pee away their division lead (though my Pale Hose did hang onto it, barely) and then find a resurgence come playoff time. Kind of looks like "destiny". If they do pull it off I would not mind, with ex-Sox Leyland, Maggs and being from the Central but I would not mind seeing the Birdies take it with Tony and Duncan. Just don't want to see the Mets take it!!!

If Carp get's it done and we still don't hit this ship is sunk. Last night we made old man Tom Glavine lok good... For Christs sakes we had ample opportunities and kept shooting our selves in the foot, with double plays. Scott Rolen needs to sit period! Weaver pitched his butt off, one mistake to Beltran but othere than that he pitched good enough to win. AAAARGGHH give me a reason to stay home and watch you guys if not I'm going walleye fishing.

Hate to agree with you CNY,

But I would be a-skeered if I was a birdie fan.

I don't think you'll get a better pitching performance from any of the Cardinals pitchers the rest of the series, with that being said, the cards better score some runs or the brooms are coming out of the closet. frown.gif

As they have started, it seems to me the better series would be OAK/StL!!

This gonna start our disagreements over again Windy or do we have a new record of agreeing on TWO things????

If by "better" you mean more competitive then we agree. If you are saying that StL and Oak are the better teams then we disagree. I guess the World Series should be the best two teams and right now for better or worse the two best appear to be the Mets and Kitties. I forgot about the fond memories a NY team brought me lo the many years ago when I was a mear tot at the age of 10 back in the Summer of 69 (pardon my Bryan Adams reference). I guess I did like a NY team for one short period of time when my beloved Pale Hose lost 100 games that year! It helped quiet my Cubbie loving friends that summer. Windy

CNY,

Don't go sending up the panic flares just yet. I didn't realize the Birdies had a DDH on their bench. (designated dinger hitter) So is 2 for 2 in the post and both went yard. Touch em all So Taguchi! Windy

Taguchi's press conference was hilarious as funny as an interview with Long Duck Dong. grin.giflaugh.gifgrin.gif Scott Rolen may not be swinging the bat but that play at 3rd base last night late in the game was huge.

Windy, I did mean it would be more competitive (since both were in hitting slumps), but now the Cards are back in it.

Tim, more beauties...off a dock? You lucky guy. Pulled a MN walter out for my dinner tonight-yum!

RJ,Andy, or whoever the heck it was that was such a huge Tiger toaster -- you finally were right. Man do they ever look like they deserve to be in the WS. Who do you want - Mets or Cards?

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
    • curt quesnell
      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
