I was so bored, I looked at the retirement calculator on my employer's website.

Holy shut your mouth. Giants 5-0 in the third!!!! Deja vu all over again, but I'll be bold and say it won't happen again and that damn if the Giants aren't going to pull this out. ****. That team deserves their rings right here and now. To lose two at home, then three straight at Cincinnati? Then be down 3-1 against the Cards? Wow. Now that is a team that doesn't know the definition of choking.

They have two things going for them tonight. They don't have Gio Gonzalez and they don't have Drew Storen.

I don't want to jinx anything, but if the Cardinals hang on to win, I'm going to say that Carpenter had that "deer in the headlights" look on the mound tonight.

More importantly, they don't have an umpire behind home plate with the strike zone the size of a postage stamp.

They have to put McCarver in a home.

Just tuned in, what do the red K's mean? The ones on the back wall recording the number of strikeouts? It is a mix of red and white Ks...

Is it my imagination or does Panda get heavier as the season goes on.  I could have sworn at Turn Back the clock night he was thinner!

The red ones are supposed to be backward K's to signify striking out looking. But whoever is doing it must've messed up and used a red one for a swinging strikeout.

Every three is a red K to make it easier to see how many strikeouts the pitcher has.  Count the number of red K's, multiply by 3 and add how ever many white K's come after the last red K.

This makes more sense.

That would be understandable.

That's what it seemed like but didn't make sense when I thought about it. Though I am more accustomed to the differently colored Ks the ones dished out by relievers.

I thought it was for backwards K's as well until I looked at it a few times.

After they unveiled the 9th K I agree with Mattionals.

Thanks, logical minds.

It would be cool if the Giants won this series, it's be the men that swept vs the men that came back.

I can see why people don't like McCarver, he's kind of... odd.

Hypothetical question: if both the ALCS and the NLCS ended in sweeps, would they move up the World Series or keep the original date?
