PLAYOFF GRAMMAR for October 7, 2010


First things first: How about that Roy Halladay and his postseason no-hitter, huh? Wow...what an amazing game! As a Philly fan, I'm so proud of Doc. We expected him to pitch well, but as usual, he exceeded expectations. Nobody could have ever dreamed he'd pitch that well. He'd waited forever to pitch in a playoff game, and it was worth the wait--he made history! And it couldn't have happened to a nicer, more humble, or classier guy. If you want to read an excellent article on Doc and his postseason no-hitter (again, just wow), click here to read Jayson Stark's take on it.

Moving on...despite basking in the afterglow of the Phillies' general awesomeness, that Twins/Yankees game last night had me angry and screaming last night and has me hoarse-voiced today. I am so, so sick of seeing this team lose to the Yankees. The Twins have another chance tonight, but dammit, it would have been nice for them to have won the series opener. Anyway...fellow Twins fan CHRISTY spotted this amusing Twins/Yankees-related error. (The really funny thing is that I received the same email blast she did and didn't spot the error myself. Good eyes, Christy!)

I know CC's a beast and all, but surely he isn't pitching every game on the ALDS, right? ;) And for cryin' out loud, if the Yankees are gonna pitch anybody the whole series, why can't it be Burnett or Vazquez? I like the Twins' odds against them better!

Thanks, CHRISTY, for spotting this! Let's go, Twins!

Aaaaahahaha! I got this e-mail too, and I didn't notice it (I went back and looked, sure enough, it's there).

LOL! OK, good, at least I wasn't alone in being oblivious to that error! :) Looking back at it now, I don't know how I could have missed it the first time around, but I definitely did!

I missed it to, granted I only looked at it on my iPod, so it's understandable not to see it, but still would have liked to found that for myself.

You're not alone, Louie--looks like many of us missed it at first glance! Good thing Christy has eagle eyes! :D

Halladay is simply amazing. A single walk away from a perfect game. Just wow, indeed. As for the image above, what about the nonword neccessary under the schedule? Not as bad as having Sabathia starting every game, but not good.

I'm telling you if they put CC in each game, he'd probably win just the one, and then the rest of the pitching staff would wear out!!

But for now, in the Pavestasche I trust. GO TWINS!

@ jblue: Ooh, I didn't notice that, either! I'm slipping! Either that or I'm just still too dazzled by Doc's no-hitter that I can't think straight... :)

@ Christy: I still trust in the Pavestache...but I really wish the good guys would have won last night!
