Cards win Game 2, 5-4

One-run losses killed the Phillies in last year's NLCS. Until I can pull my thoughts together on last night's game, here is an inspired guest haiku from a law school friend

Sick of folks saying
La Russa is a genius.
Worst haircut ever.

Phils win Game 1, 11-6

Ryan Howard may have turned the entire postseason around. Howard swung, the crowd roared, and the Phillies are off and running. Here's a haiku summarizing the game and another one musing on the ninth inning.

Doc had a rough first,
But the offense woke up and
Howard's blast won it.

If we need an out
In the late innings, I think
It won't be from Stutes.
