Chip Caray is the best, plain and simple! Only Chip could screw up the potential game winning call not once, but twice in extra innings (10th and 12th). I think Chip used the word 'fisted' 78 times. Who knew that a ground ball, line drive and fly ball hit to the infield and outfield all could be 'fisted'. Thesaurus, Chip? TBS- To make things even better, please bring back Tony Gwynn: the Caray/Gwynn combination was one for the record books in 2007 (The NY Times Explains Why). Hilarious!

On to quick LDS predictions:

Yankees-Twins: YANKEES IN 4  It would not shock me if the Twins came in and stole Game One. The Twins are coming off a high and Sabathia has been a horrible postseason pitcher. I'm rooting for multiple extra inning games with Chip on the call. Overall, though, the Yanks are too strong and should advance with ease.

Red Sox-Angels: ANGELS IN 5  Can the Angels finally beat the Red Sox? I think so. Lackey is pitching for a contract, Weaver has been consistent and Kazmir has been great in his last 6 starts with LA. I'll take LA's deep starting pitching to finally put them over the top in a grueling series.

Cardinals-Dodgers: CARDINALS IN 4  Carpenter and Wainwright are scary at the top of the rotation. Randy Wolf is not. St. Louis rolls to the NLCS.

Phillies-Rockies: PHILLIES IN 5  Tough series to call. The Phillies have the better offense and starting pitching. The Rockies have a more reliable bullpen (anyone would compared to the Phillies) and better bench. I'll say the series goes the distance with Victorino providing the series-winning hit. By the way, Game 3 weather forecast in Denver: 31 degrees and SNOW!

I missed it while play was going on (for obvious reasons - holding breath, etc) but man was it funny to hear the "LINE DRIVE BASE HIT ... and it's caught there ..." on afterwards.
