NLCS Game 2: Giants even series up behind Vogelsong, Scutaro - McCovey Chronicles
"And Matt Holliday is a doodyhead." I can't match wits with Mr. Brisbee, so I'll just let his words serve as the lede.
There's a lot of things about Justin Verlander that hardly seem fair.

Happy 21st birthday to Jonathan Schoop! On this day in 1969 the O's were stunned by the Mets, falling to the upstart club in 5 games. In 1971, Brooks would hit a game winning RBI in the 10th inning to even up the Series vs. the Pirates. In 1979 the Pirates would beat Jim Palmer and send the Series to a deciding Game 7. In 1983 EDDIE! EDDIE! hit 2 home runs in the clinching game of the World Series vs. the Phillies.
