    No choke just took a beating. It does happen

      It's a good thing Folty wasn't on short rest, or everyone would have blamed his performance on that, just as they did with Verlander. Pitchers do have bad days on normal rest.

        Not surprised that the team with the NLs best record since the All Star break won, but I am surprised with how they did it. The bullpen was iffy, their defense sloppy, and Flaherty far from his usually unhittable self. They won with 25 runs in their three victories. That was NOT how I saw this series going.

          There's nothing to say about it. Let's go bring back the narrative that Clayton Kershaw is a postseason choker.

            If we thought peak Kershaw was iffy in the postseason, just wait until we see more of this declining, 90MPH fastball Kershaw in the postseason.

              Right. Sooner I put this disappointing day behind me the better.

                The Nationals upset the Dodgers winning game 5 in 10 innings, 7-3. The Dodgers World Series drought will now extend to at least 32 years.

                  I was rooting for the Nats, but even I'm a bit stunned that they actually pulled it off. I thought the Dodgers were just too good. Could they defeat the Cardinals next? Maybe? Possibly?

                    It's crazy to realize that this is the Nats/Expos first playoff series win since the 1981 NLDS when the Expos defeated the defending World Series champion Phillies in five games.

                      Of course they can. What are you even talking about? They will be favored by a large majority of real and wanna-be pundits.

                        in 96 the Cards were up 3-1 on the Braves in the NLCS, were massacred by a combined score of 32-1 in the final 3 games, including scalpings of 14-0 in Game 5, 15-0 in Game 7.

                        I love the un-PC metaphors.

                        And in the 1985 WS the Cards went down 11-0 to KC in Game 7. In 68 they were up 3-2 against Detroit and got shellacked in Game 6, 13-1. So it was nice to be on the other end of a laugher for once. There's no explanation for why it happens, but it does.

                              Now it's been 75 years since a NL team won three consecutive pennants.

                                In that 1996 NLCS Game 7, Donovan Osborne had a GS of 17. He gave up more hits and more total bases than Folty, and the same number of earned runs. All of the ER he gave up came while he was on the mound, whereas three of Folty's six ER were given up by Fried. Osborne was not the victim of an error that potentially would have ended the inning before almost all of the damage was done (not to mention made the difference in the GS).

                                I'd say Osborne's game was worse.
