That was one hell of a game. Normally I don't find baseball exciting, but damn. Being 1 strike away from elimination twice, being down 2 runs each time, wow!:buttrock:

OH H.....EYE OH
Especially scarey with Adam Wainwright coming back next year even if they lose Albert P. :bigahh:

Also -

We don't know his name. We just know he's out there, somewhere, and he has possessed two betting slips worth a total of $375,000 after the St. Louis Cardinals won Game 7 of the World Series on Friday night.

As we reported (thanks to Deadspin and Joe Sports Fan), an unnamed individual made two wagers at the MGM sports book in Las Vegas on Sept. 12 that the Cardinals would win the National League pennant and the World Series, respectively. He put $250 on each possibility and won $125,000 after the Cards beat the Brewers in the NLCS. He has since cashed in that slip.

The Redbirds were 999-to-1 to win the World Series when the man placed his bets and, as we know, the Cards won their 11th World Series on Friday, making Johnny No-Name $250,000 richer. (Although, he technically came out ahead with $150,000 more because he hedged his bets before the Series started, Deadspin says, putting a hundred grand on Texas to win just in case.)

Still, that's a net of $275,000 won betting on baseball — betting on a team that was 10 1/2 games out of a playoff spot on Aug. 25. Jay Rood, an MGM vice president who sets the line at 12 books in Nevada, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the man bet with "perfect timing."
