Three Great Game 5s Over Two Nights

Between last night's Detroit win over the Yankees (3-2), tonight's Brewers win over the Diamondbacks (also by a 3-2 score) and the just-completed shocker, a 1-0 win by St. Louis over the heavily-favoured Phillies (Chris Carpenter just barely outpitching former Toronto teammate Roy Halladay), it's been a nail-biter's worst nightmare!

It's pretty amazing when four 5-game series go a total of 19 games, as this year's League Divisional Series did. Only Texas and Tampa Bay didn't go the distance, with the (other) Rangers taking their series in 4 games.

So now it's Brewers vs Cards in the NL, and Tigers up against Texas in the AL. I've got to think the absence of the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers and Phillies probably means ratings will be down for this year's LCS and World Series, but who cares? As long as the baseball's good, I'm in!
