NLCS Game One Open Thread

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers. Two rivals that have swapped insults over the year facing off in the second biggest series of the season.

Edwin Jackson and Shaun Marcum are the two starters today, both making their second starts of the postseason. Marcum was acquired by the Brewers in the offseason, and Jackson was acquired at the Trade Deadline.

I lied. The matchup today is Zack Greinke vs. Jaime Garcia.

Players to watch include Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder, and Ryan Braun. In the field, watch Rafael Furcal.

Nyjer Morgan is considered a player to watch for most, but I turn the TV off whenever he appears.

Personally, I am rooting for a competitive seven game series. That's it, I don't care who wins.

Also, if you have not heard, the Rangers vs. Tigers ALCS Game two has been postponed, and will be played at 4:19 ET tomorrow. The forecast looks awful, so I think the MLB made the right decision.
