I predict a lot of NLCS moonshots

This is what happens when you have guys like Albert Pujols, Scott Rolen, Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, David Wright and slugger paradise in a National League Championship Series. In contrast to the the ALCS, this is going to feature two explosive offenses that have to overcome some pitching deficiency. Here is some Canon Powerblogging from my skyline view two nights before the opener to show you an omen that just happened for moonshot fans. The big Harvest Moon is the ball and the Empire State Building is the bat.

It’s 8:17 p.m. ET. Here comes the rising four-seam fastball…


8:21: Middle-in to our slugger…


8:22: This would be point of contact to go oppo field…


8:25: He takes it for a strike…


8:31: It appears to be a passed ball as well…


It made me think of John "Blue Moon" Odom facing Kong Kingman. What will this omen mean for the Cardinals, who played that 2004 World Series Game 4 against the Red Sox under a Blood Moon? I was kind of hoping the Empire State Building would knock it out of Central Park, but it never moved the bat. Even though it was a called strike down the pipe, I still think it was an omen that we’ll be talking about moonshots in this series. If pitchers dominate the series, then someone can say that the called strike was really the omen.
