For $215M....and his regular season dominance. That's ridiculous
It's just disappointing when he's dominating in the regular season and ****ing up when it counts most. Four straight losses to the Cardinals? You can't always blame the lack of a bullpen. He was playing lights out in both games heading into the 7th inning. No manager (regardless of bullpen) would've pulled him.

Game 1 was the one I was thinking of in terms of the 7th inning itself. He was great up till that point...but a manager confident in his bullpen certainly doesn't allow his starter to give up as many hits as Kershaw did in that inning. Other than Jansen, he didn't have anybody that could reliably come in and get outs before the 9th inning.

Tonight's game changed on one pitch. No manager pulls Kershaw in that situation. It's not like the two singles prior to Adams' HR were roped either.

If you want a team to beat the Cardinals, have them throw a bunch of guys with sub-.500 records and 5 ERAs.

The Royals winning is fun and all but it's also the reason I barely pay attention to baseball playoffs (after having it on in the background all summer). Every year the outcome bears no resemblance to the regular season. The Royals and Giants were the worst teams in the entire field so of course one wins 8 games in a row and the other is on the brink of advancing. Is that fun? When we roll dice do we crown the number that comes up as the champion of all numbers?

Instead of a wildcard they should just put the last place team from each league in the playoffs to remind us of how meaningless the whole exercise is when they win every 5th year.

Well, when Matheny hands another LCS over, we'll get to hear how great a job he did making 3 LCS in a row.

Sorry, it's about winning...the Matheny supporters are hanging their hat on 3 LCS in 3 years. The man was handed a World Champion, and is trying to make them irrelevant.

F Mike Matheny.

Congrats to any Giants fans on a great team going onto play for the big prize.

If the St. Louis Cardinals don't realize they have a complete freaking imbecile running the club, I don't know anything that would help.

Mike Matheny turned a World Champion into a joke...and he's going to get to stay to embarrass this franchise even further. No one should give a flying you know what about 3 LCS trips for Crystal Matheny; that was a World Champion he ran into the freaking ground.
