Here's a little something I wrote for Baseball Nation on the Matt Holliday slide in Monday's NLCS game; it includes video of a similar slide Holliday made into Starlin Castro in St. Louis in July 2011.
Am I insinuating something about Holliday? Of course not. (Of course.)
Meanwhile, the punchless Yankees meet the Tigers' best pitcher, a man who has allowed one run in 16 innings this postseason, allowing seven hits (five singles and two doubles) with five walks and 22 strikeouts. That's a WHIP of 0.75.
I expect the Tigers to be up three games to none after tonight.

This will be the only thread for today's game; if it gets too slow, post another one in the fanshot area. Discuss amongst yourselves.
