Playoff Pack Breaks Part 5

After a couple of days with no games....we're back for the next Playoff Pack Break. The only game scheduled for Thursday had to be frustrating for certain bloggers out know who you are!

Game 1 NLCS: Phillies 8 Dodgers 6

The Phils take a 1-0 lead in the series. I didn't see the game, but from the recap I heard on the radio it sounded as if young Mr. Kershaw had the "Hey, I'm the youngest LCS Game 1 Starter in history" jitters. Here's hoping I get only Dodgers and no Yankees in my next pack of Goodwin.

64 Alex Rodriguez--Really? No, REALLY? Of course the first card is a Yankee and to make matters worse it actually touched, therefore tainted, card number 2.

119 Carl Yaztremski--One of my top 5 favorites of all-time (Even if he did play for the Red Sox)

159 Howie Kendrick--Great, a card from the other team in the ALCS-did I tell you I don't want either team to win...just play on and on and on...wear yourselves out boys.

110 Matt Holliday--Close-up shot in his A's batting helmet. 'Sigh'

I hope the rest of the packs do better, even though I did get the Yaz card.

--Side note-- I was asleep for most of the game (I work the night shift) but expected to hear the game on the radio on the way to work. ESPN promises to deliver every pitch of the playoffs. I get in the car, turn on the radio, and what do I hear? The post-game show for the Mavericks pre-season game? Come on ESPN 103.3 FM! I get that you're the "Home of the Mavericks", but give us a break. Please don't bump a real live game that actually counts for a pre-season game. Terrible programming choice.


  1. You missed a painful, but interesting game. Kershaw was great until completely losing it in the 5th (he is 21 after all). Dodgers had hits all over the place, but still couldn't overcome all of the WALKS by Kershaw and Sherrill.

    Definitely had a playoff feel, between all the jitters/pitching substitutions/long time of game.

  2. YAY, GO PHil.... awe screw it, we all know how this one ended!!
