    After 1 inning:

    1. Loney is the MVP of this Series; and
    2. Kuroda looks sharp!

  2. Voldomer says:

    Is it Loney, Martin, or . . . Wade?

    I could handle Loney and Martin sharing it. Strong arguments can be made for each of them.

    That was an exciting game and experience for me. It finishes only second to the Super Bowl that I attended in 2004. I stayed for some of the after Stadium party with Russel Martin and Matt Kemp high 5ing the crowd and climbing up onto the bull pen roof and into the left field bleachers. Manny was running around the infield being Manny and Ozuna was spraying the crowd with beer. Joe Torre climbed into the seats behind homeplate to hung Billy Cystal, Tommy Lasorda and Frank McCourt. I think I saw tears in Joes eyes. Weird, knowing that Joe has been through this so many times. I got to sit next to a relocated Cub fan tonight. He moved to So Cal two years ago but did not convert his sports teams from Chi Town. I truely felt his pain as the Dodgers went for the jugular and never let up. Alot of the Dodger fans around us was being very obnoxious which caused me to root silently most of the night. I always enjoy a victory but have never been one to rub salt in the wounds of the enemy unless they deserve it.
    Just looking around the Stadium brought on a whole different look and feel tonight. The free rally towels that were handed out at the gate was an amazing site to see twisting around the heads of almost every person in the Stadium. The best part of all of this for me is the fact that everyone at ESPN was wrong about this series except for Peter Gammons. Well It should only get better from here. Billy R OUT.

    Pinella’s take in the Chicago Tribune:

    Still, after watching his league-leading offense disappear in the postseason once again, manager Lou Piniella admitted he wasn’t shocked at all by the results.

    “Nothing is shocking,” he said. “I said once you get into postseason, all eight teams start equal and they all have chances. I was concerned about our offense coming into this thing, to be honest with you. And basically my concerns were realized.

    “What can I say? We gave an effort, played as well as we could. At home we were sloppy, but today we played a damn good baseball game. But we just didn’t take advantage of opportunities, and we didn’t create opportunities. So give the Dodger credit. But let me tell you this, you could play postseason between now and another 100 years, and if you score six runs in a three-game series, it’s going to be another 100 years before you win here. So we’ve got to score more runs, period.”

    Ouch!!! I thought (and stated) that Kuroda should dominate them, like he had done in two previous meetings this year.
