Who’s on first?

This just in, Auburn 65, Arkansas 43

This was NOT a pitcher’s duel.

Looks like Rangers survived the eighth inning this time. It will probably be their only win though.

Looking forward to Halladay vs. Lincecum tonight. That should be a great duel.

Yes, should be a great matchup. Both have good pitching but the Phils have the bats. Although they were 3-3 vs each other during the regular season.

Ironically enough a PBS station in Boston is showing Rain Man right now—scene had “Raymond” getting nervous and when he does he keeps doing Who’s on First.

Will history be made, first postseason home win for Rangers?

CAUGHT!

I was happy to see Barry Zito is not on the Giants playoff roster for the NLSC. Sometimes you just have to know when to man up and cut your losses.The Giants sure could use that 17 million a year they are paying him to purchase some hitting.San Francisco should hold a parade when his contract expires.

NEW YORK (AP)—Cablevision and Fox parent News Corp. left the negotiating table without a deal Saturday, giving 3 million customers in the New York metropolitan area little hope of watching the first game of baseball’s National League Championship Series from their couch.

Both sides met throughout the afternoon Saturday but adjourned before the start of the playoff game between the Phillies and the San Francisco Giants, said Cablevision spokesman Jim Maiella. Negotiators plan to meet again Sunday.

The stalemate that led to Fox pulling its channels and, briefly, online content from subscribers in parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut early Saturday was the latest in a series of programming fee disputes that have led to blackouts of programs such as the Oscars. But the impasse amounted to more than corporate wrangling for Bronx resident Clifford Taylor.

“We live for sports,” Taylor said. “Die-hard New Yorker fans, we love to see the Yankees and Giants play.”

Hard-core hometown fans like Taylor could still hold out hope: No New York teams were scheduled for games broadcast on Fox until Sunday, when the New York Giants play the Detroit Lions. The American League Championship Series between the Yankees and Texas Rangers, which began Friday, is airing on TBS and isn’t affected by the dispute.

Phils have squared up on some balls so far this game. Still very early, but that seems to bode well.

I am just hoping the Giants pitching can suppress their bats through the series. If they can, I think we will see a lot of low scoring games with either team winning by one run.

Would they get Pelosi to throw out first pitch in SF?

John and Te-ray-za Kerry as he prepares to do a first pitch at Fenway Park. Kerry when asked to name his fave Sox player: "I tell ya. Manny Ortez..Manny Ortez, DAVID Ortez..."

I don't know how FReepers are going to take this, but the team that comes closest to being "my team" out of the four survivors is the San Francisco Giants. It has absolutely nothing to do with San Francisco (in fact, it is in spite of that) and everything to being "the Giants."

No team so embodies Ancient Baseball as the New York Giants. The team of Christy Mathewson, Joe McGinnity, John McGraw, and Mel Ott was once a major (perhaps the major) powerhouse in the Majors. What storied baseball field conjures up images of mustachioed "batsmen," "Casey at the Bat," and Cracker Jack than the Polo Grounds?

I haven't watched a World Series in a long, long time. If I do I'll root for the National League team (as always).

Even if the Phillies win, considering that prior to 1980 they appeared in only two World Series (1915 and 1950) and lost them both, I don't really mind their success of recent decades.

Well, at least I got the part right about the teams winning by one run although a higher scoring game than expected when you consider both teams started their aces.
