New York Mets left fielder Endy Chavez robs St. Louis Cardinals' Scott Rolen of a home run in the top of the sixth inning of Game 7 of the National League Championship Series, Thursday, Oct. 19, 2006, at Shea Stadium in New York. Chavez's throw back to first base doubled off Cardinals' Jim Edmonds to end the inning. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)TOP 6TH. ENNNNNNNNNNNNN-DEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! He just jumped and reached over the wall and took a 2 run HR away from Rolen, and doubled up Jim "Dave" Edmonds! Holy CRAP, what a PLAY! It would be a different score if Cliff Floyd was out there, methinks.

BOTTOM 6TH. Endy with a double curtain call, on a DEFENSIVE PLAY. First time I've ever seen that.
We need a run. We need a Carlos to unload a payload. Man, I'm getting punchy.
3 BB for DEL GONE-O, brings up Davey Wight. Rolen with a Knoblachian throw into the expensive seats on the first base line! They walk the bases loaded, but get Jose #2 on a K, and Endy on a pop out to end the "threat". Shit.

TOP 7TH. The O.P. is done for the night, giving us 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 K, 1 BB, 88 pitches--more than you could ever expect. Submarine pitcher Chad Bradford comes in. I wonder what his favorite movie is, "U-571", "The Hunt for Red October" or "Das Boot"?

BOTTOM 7TH. I loved Chris Tucker (Karl joke) in "Rush Hour 2", but he sucked in "Rush Hour 1". That's the best joke I have right now. Three up three down for the Mets, Suppan is at the 99 pitch mark and looks unhittable. Ugh. This has all the earmarks of a looooooooooong game. And it's raining harder in Flushing. Crap monkeys. I wonder if I should make some coffee.

TOP 8TH. Aaron "Seig" Heilman on the mound. Scott Speizio, who stole Scott Weiland's facial hair from 1993, strikes out looking. Rolen is still not talking to La Russa. In fact, he's not even making eye contact, and whenever Tony talks he puts his fingers in his ears while shouting "LALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" After a walk to Poo Holes, Heilman K's Encarnacion.
Note: it looked like Puj has a herpes sore on his lip. I didn't need to see that, FOX HD!
