Arrrgggghhhhhhhhh! One out away from the World Series. One pitch away, and Brad Lidge couldn't make it. After Eckstine's hit, Lidge couldn't make any pitches. I blame Phil Garner and Brad Asmus as much as Lidge. I haven't played baseball since Little League, but my theory would be: Pitch around Pujols, and whatever you do, don't groove him one. He hit the kind of home run that's more than a game winner. It's a stake in the heart. My prediction: Oswalt and Clemens won't be able to carry the load. Cards in seven.
