Man, 4 most evil NL teams remain.  I'll have to cheer for an AL team.  Let's go Orioles!  Cal Ripken was great!

Eh, nothing, I guess.  Strasburg used to bug me, like Lincecum used to.  Plus, don't tase me bro.

But they are definitely not in the dodgers/giants/cardinals class of scumminess.

I'm the first one in my family to be born on the east coast so I don't have a problem with the Giants. LA and STL are definitely scummy. Bold predictions anyone?

My bold prediction failed almost immediately.

I guess I wouldn't mind nats/o's but I still want kc in the ws. Mostly I just don't want stl to even sniff a win.

I think the O's can go all the way. I'd rather see the Nats win it but I'd be pretty excited for the O's too.

It's a game again. And now I have to go technology free for the next two hours, so I won't know how it finishes. So nerve wracking.

I kinda want to defend Williams here. Even though I disagreed with his call to pull Zimm and insert Storen given the situation, I certainly don't think he (and as a byproduct Storen) deserve all the anger and hate their getting.

Yes, the move backfired, and that's hard to watch as a fanbase. It's made even harder by both the recent dominance of Zimm, but more by the memorable collapse of Storen previously.

Zimm did not look great in his walk to Panik. He was squeezed in the zone early, but it appeared to rattle him a little bit and his next few pitches were way off. Williams knew this game was a must win for his team, and he had a closer in Storen who had been absolutely lights out down the stretch. Zimm pitched an amazing game. So did Kershaw for the Dodgers until he blew up.

Storen did not fail his manager or his team. If asked, I'm sure he would make the same pitches a second time through to the same hitters. Posey stretched out and flipped the head of the bat at a pitch away, just managing to make enough solid contact to dunk it into shallow left center. It wasn't driven, and Posey didn't have much balance in his swing. Sandoval fell behind in the count himself, before putting on a Pablo'esque swing (off balance as well, ball off the plate) to punch one barely fair down the line.

Storen got unlucky. Good hitters hit good pitches. Nothing more. Nothing less. To demonize Williams for going with his closer, someone that he MUST have complete trust in, in a game his team MUST win, is really unfair to him. Likewise, to demonize Storen for getting beat on good pitches just because he had a meltdown in the past does him a disservice.

Would I have kept in Zimm? Yes, absolutely. But I can't fault Williams for the choice he made.

I think Storen was the right choice but I also don't know what Zimm's pitch count was. You're right though he did look a little off with that walk. Storen should've been able to get the job done but sometimes good hitters will put good swings on it. But so much of the game was the lack of offense. Three of the Nats' top hitters were 0 for 7. You can't win games like that.

Congrats O's. No A's, no Tigers. All the trade deadline talk of who made what trade to get the upper hand in the ALCS was for naught.

You can't win games like that.

He was 96 pitches, I believe.

Posey's hit was on a great pitch.  Pablo got a slightly better one to hit.  Great throw to home by Harper to save the game.

I stick with Zimm, but I don't fault the call to the closer.  10/10 in save opps since August.

The Orioles have a ton of power. But man, you still gotta get a pitch to hit in order to knock it out. The Royal's scare me. It feels like 1 thru 9, a single or a walk is essentially a triple - and when you're a base hit or an error away from a run constantly... yikes.
