Wow! Angels win, 2-1. I really like how evenly matched these two teams are. Anaheim's bullpen may be the deciding factor.

I didn't know that Rod Carew got his 3,000th hit when he was an Angel against the Twins.

Anyway, so far it's been a very good series. It's kind of fun not really caring that much about who wins. I just get to appreciate some good baseball.

Bummer but I like the Twins' chances tomorrow with Radke pitching. It's still anybody's series.

I remember seeing Carew get that hit on TV when I was a kid. The pitcher was Frank Viola. God those powder-blue road unis were hideous.

Back to being a doomsayer. The Giants are done. They may win one game at home, but they'll surely be going back to St. Louis, where homefield will finally make a difference...

Oh, here's a pic:

Nice pic, Eugene.

I'm not giving up on my Twins, though ... I think they'll battle back to win tomorrow, and then who knows what will happen at the Dome. And teams do come back from 3-1 deficits ... as Angels fans well know

Wow ... Angels 13, Twins 5 Good luck to the Angels; they've been playing great ball and have great fans.

Angels vs. Cardinals would be a great Series.

We'll be back!

Kent screamed "F*CK!" after he struck out in game 2. Clearly audible.

And when JT Snow hit his two RBI double you could see him mouth "F*CK YAH!"

Great game...Now I have to line up for World Series tickets if they're leading toward the end of the game tomorrow!

Tim McCarver and Joe Buck are so bad. I can't believe FOX is using them to announce the NLCS. Both are obviously very biased to St. Louis. Amazingly, Joe Buck seems to be the lesse of the two evils, even though he's Jack Buck's kid. Jon Miller, rescue me, PLEASE.

Well, McCarver once played for the Cards too.

Time McCarver isn't the greatest, but I actually like Joe Buck. I'd take the two of them over Jon Miller any day.

I'll take nationally broadcast games on ESPN with Jon Miller over FOX's McCarver/Buck A-team any day of the week.

As for the local guys, Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow rule.

Nothing against the Giants but with a series like this one I kind of wish it could have gone seven. The reason it didn't was the Giants got the key hits when the Cardinals didn't. The Cards weren't as bad as the Braves at leaving runners on - nobody could be that bad - but they sure blew their chances. Seems as though the Giants never let an opportunity pass them by. Really good series. I hope the World Series is as good but it goes seven.

The same thing that happened to the Braves happened to the Cardinals. They stranded people on base, many in scoring position.

Somehow I don't think the Giants will be able to do the same thing to Anaheim...Those guys can hack at and hit anything.

Bonds gets a HR in his first Series at bat? J. T. Snow looked great both at the plate and with his glove. And it was still a tight game - very well-played too. This could be a good one. I'm hoping for almost constant changes of momentum. Giants draw first blood, 4-3.

Man, if Reggie Sanders and JT Snow can hit, then damn, the Giants aren't gonna lose.

One annoying point, all these articles I'm reading about the series keep mentioning how the Angels lost the first game of the LDS and LCS and still one the series. But those losses were on the road. I don't think there's anyway that Anaheim can win more the one game at Pac Bell. The giants are too good at home.

Oh, and tonight, I say **** the DH, and let Russ hit. The man has a sweet swing.

Russ is a decent hitter, but it's better to let him focus on pitching rather than have him try to produce something offensive. It would be a waste not to use someone like Dunston against Appier tonight.

Oh, no we're not. Just look how fast we got over our hangovers in the first inning. (Boy, that was a party) But those kinds of errors won't happen again. The giants will be victorous! <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

Tim Salmon thought the same thing. It should land in San Francisco right around practice time tomorrow.

I don't know which one was cooler... the one he hit halfway into McCovey Cove in NLCS Game 3 or the one he hit tonight.

You can't stop them, you can only hope to contain them. Go Angels!

The G-Men will be lucky if they even win another game. The way the Angels hit everything, I doubt if they will.

I knew that would happen. The Giants don't have a Schilling or Johnson. The closest thing they have is Jason Schmidt, who despite winning in Game 1, did not dominate the Angels. Not one 15 game winner during the season, let alone 20 games.

SF's pitching just can't handle Anaheim's insane firebats.

SF has to get something out of their starters. The last two games they've been atrocious. If they don't get their act together soon, this will be a short series.

I can't see Rueter doing anything different than what Hernandez and Ortiz did. He will get pummeled. He's finessey, and if he doesn't get those corner calls, which haven't been getting called really anyway, he's gonna be forced to throw strikes and the Angels will jump all over him.

The 3 games the Angels have lost have been close. They stay in the game and they produce when they have to. If the Giants don't get ahead early or keep runners off the basepaths, I don't see them leaving San Francisco.

Here's hoping I'm right about Rueter and the Angels kick the sh!t out of them. I hate the Giants more than the Yankees. And I hate the Yankees.

what a crummy presentation of the most memorable moments in major league baseball history.... half of those shouldn't be there.

where's the shot heard round the world?
where's don larsen's perfect game?
buckner's error?
willie mays basket catch?

and to be honest, is there really a moment more memorable and more historic than Gerhig's fairwell speech? "the luckiest man" will always be the most memorable moment.

Thats not even a true baseball moment. It is a speech not part of a game. Yankee fans.
