Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

If the Cardinals clinch today, will they celebrate by plunging into an LA landmark? Boy, I hope Kim Kardashian is ready...

1pm Arizona time, TBS. Cardinals lead 3-1
Will this be the day to bring a broad smile to my face? The last of Y*s**l P**g for 2013? We can but hope, with last night's St. Louis victory pushing Los Angeles to the edge of elimination. Of course, it won't be easy, but the Cardinals have beaten the Dodgers in a Greinke start once already in this series, even if took them a while to get there. However, let's not forget last season, where the Cardinals blew a 3-1 lead to the Giants in the NLCS. I certainly don't want them to lose and have to face Kershaw on Friday, because that might well lead to win or die Game 7. Just get it done today and let me enjoy the rest of the post-season, m'kay?

5pm Arizona time, Fox. Red Sox lead 2-1
We're only half-way through the NLCS and this year has already tied the mark of four, set in 1991, for most 1-0 wins in a single post-season. Two of three games here have already ended that way: only one other playoff series since 1966 has had multiple such games. The Atlanta-Pittsburgh NLCS in that 1991 season had three 1-0 games). This has been an extraordinarily well-pitched series so far, with Boston and Detroit having ERA of 2.00 and 2.08 respectively. For context, Arizona's ERA in the 2001 WS was 1.94, and even we didn't have the hellacious K-rate of the Tigers staff, who have fanned 43 in 26 innings. But they're still losing...
