First of all, here are the links TheMomCat found for me so you can share the game if you don’t happen to get MLB Network.
The live scoreboard is pretty interesting, we were playing around with it last night. I had played around with it before, what I discovered that’s new is the Game View button underneath the Diamond. MLB Network is all happy that they were able to get Bob Costas to call the game.
I root too good.
I must admit when I was hoping for extended series I was not considering what a pain in the ass it is to have to cover 4 games a day, and there’s every prospect it will happen again tomorrow and I have some afternoon appointments. TheMomCat is filling in to the best of her ability, but she has stuff to do also. I guess we’ll just do the best we can same as always.
Nationals Park is conveniently un-corporately named and the Cardinals come to the field tied at 1 which, while not the very best position to be in, is about what can reasonably be expected. I was gratified to see flashes of last year’s champions after becoming needlessly discouraged by their initial loss which seems much less decisive in retrospect after they thumped the Nationals in Game 2 12 – 4 (and it was much worse than that, 3 of those were pity runs).
Chris Carpenter is 0 – 2 with a 3.71 ERA in three starts since coming back from left side nerve problems. It’s hard to say how well he’ll pitch, he does hold the best record in Baseball for playoff performance. Edwin Jackson (10 – 11, 4.03) is the Nationals’ only pitcher with playoff experience.
Last year, with the Cards. Go figure.
