So many interesting possbilities: Mets/A's = rematch of '73 Tigers/Cardinals = rematch of '68 AND '34 Cardinals/A's = rematch of '31 The only matchup that doesn't have an interesting history is Mets/Tigers. So... Tigers in 5 (Kenny Rogers, because I want him to win least) Mets in 5 (Steve Trachsel, because I think he's the only pitcher who could be worse than Kenny Rogers, and I'm wrong about everybody. I'm Mr. Opposite.)

posted by BullpenPro at 02:59 PM on October 09

Well, I didn't believe in the Tigers, I didn't believe in the A's, and the San Diego pick was just to satisfy my need for a crazy upset pick. Having explained my reasoning, let me step in another pile: ALCS Striped Jungle Felines in 7 Bonderman (3.54 ERA) NLCS Metropolitans in 6 Glavine (2.67 ERA) Yeah, that's right, I picked the damn ERAs, too.

Having fluked a fourth position in the LDS, you are now just trying to make it hard for me with the bonus, aren't you? I have no idea who pitches for any of these teams. So I'll go with nominating ones I may have heard of before, or stealing other peoples' picks: Tigers in 6, Rogers Cards in 7, Glavine

I couldn't correctly match the team name with the city or even name one player on any of the teams and now you want me to pick a pitcher!?! Oh well, here goes nothing... Detroit in 6 Rogers St. Louis in 7 Carpenter

Hey I got them all wrong last week. 100% incorrect across the board! So here's the teams I jinxing this round. Oakland in 5 Zito Cards in 5 Carpenter

Just in case this comes out later, and I'm accused of plagiarism, please note that I (who know nothing) have identical selections as the Canadian baseball guru Dr John Evans, but I PICKED THEM FIRST. So there.

owlhouse, so you admit it, do you? You are a psychic plagiarist!

A philosophy drummed into me by my teenage daughter almost every day.

posted by owlhouse at 12:37 AM on October 11

Actually, if Glavine is starting today, I'm sorely tempting to change my pick. It's highly unlikely that Glavine would have two excellent outings in a seven-game series loss. Or—you know what? Maybe he will. I'm keepin' it. Good call, owlhouse.

A philosophy drummed into me by my teenage daughter almost every day. You got one of those too. Mine is only 12, and is the smartest thing alive!

Tim McCarver's line of the night: "They want to desperately get this guy out without him reaching base."

posted by DrJohnEvans at 11:34 PM on October 12

I don't know, my vote goes to this gem: (Talking about Jeff Weaver's hand placement on the ball) "You can see the ball, you can see his hand, you can't see his confidence."

Checking the score online in the fifth, I thought Carpenter had snuck out to the mound in Weaver's jersey.

posted by apoch at 06:57 AM on October 13

Gopher-ball Weaver comes through again!

The tiebreaker for the bonus question is the number of innings pitched: if two pitchers are tied with the lowest ERAs, the pitcher with more IP is the bonus answer. I should've clarified this earlier, but fortunately nobody picked Nate Robertson (5.0 IP) to have a 0.00 series ERA, so his tie with Kenny Rogers (7.1 IP) shouldn't be a matter of controversy. Fair enough?

posted by DrJohnEvans at 09:28 PM on October 15

Okay, Chris Carpenter was just removed for a pinch-hitter, and Maine left earlier in the inning, so we can calculate the NLCS starters' ERA so far (minimum 5.0 IP). 0.00 - Suppan 2.45 - Glavine 2.89 - Maine 3.09 - Weaver 5.73 - Carpenter 8.65 - Perez 9.00 - Trachsel So if the Cardinals win tonight, Suppan will be it—but if they lose, he'll probably pitch tomorrow.

posted by DrJohnEvans at 09:25 PM on October 18

And yikes, nobody picked Suppan. I thought at least one person did.

posted by DrJohnEvans at 09:28 PM on October 18

I picked Suppan. I accidentally spelled it T-R-A-C-H-S-E-L. Typo. Oh, and I'm definitely fine with that tie-breaker. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kenny Rogers, you passive-aggressive son of a gun.

Here in Detroit we like to call Rogers Bonderman and vice versa in order to confuse opponets.
