There’s a Game 7 tonight (pending iffy weather in San Francisco), so you’re damn right there’s going to be a game thread.

As you can imagine, I don’t really want either team to win, though I think it’s obvious we’re all Cardinals fans tonight; imagine how insufferable the Giants would be if they battled back from a 3-1 deficit here?

The downside of that is having to root for Kyle Lohse, who is poised to become the most annoying free agent of the offseason now that Buster Olney is saying he’s heard from scouts who think Lohse could end up with a 5/$77.5m contract similar to C.J. Wilson‘s last year. (I’ve already heard from one angry Cardinals fan who claimed I should stop being a stat nerd and simply watch the games because Lohse has been so great for the last four years, which, right.) I don’t know about you, but the idea of Ned Colletti seeing a good-but-not-great 34-year-old pitcher with a history of arm trouble headed into the marketplace after a good postseason is basically the definition of horror, so to see Lohse get knocked around a bit wouldn’t be the worst thing.

Still, we can’t always get what we want, and there’s no outcome involving the Giants in the World Series which ends well. So in a classic “the enemy of the enemy is our friend” move, reluctantly: let’s go Cardinals.
