well, that sucked. down 2 games to none with their best pitchers having pitched as well as one could have hoped doesn't give me a whole lot of hope. the dodgers have lost two of the last three postseason series that they have played against the cardinals, and, unless they go 4-0 (or 4-1) in their next few games, they will lose another one.
so, it feels like an appropriate time to show some cards that i received from madding at cards on cards a while back. he didn't send any cards from 2004 - the last time the dodgers dropped a series to saint louis - but he did send this donruss all-stars card of pedro guerrero from 1985
there were a healthy number of mike piazza cards in the package, too. like this fantastic 1994 topps stadium club card
here's another piazza play at the plate card, this one coming from 1994 upper deck.
here's piazza again on a 1995 upper deck card
same with this 1998 donruss card from the fan club subset
as he is in the 2005 topps chrome set, too
thanks for the trade kerry. here's hoping the dodgers can even up the series and make more like 2009 than 2004 or 1985.
