Pitch to Cabrera in the 9th?!?! Why,Bob Melvin,why?????

This series is like so many games the Sox played in Detroit this season:
take an early 1 run lead,then watch the Tigers spank your ass,come from behind and win.

This is the first playoff game for the Nationals franchise in 31 years. First ever playoff game as the Nationals - previous was as the Expos.

Are you saying that some of these LDS series games are only available on MLB Network? Wow.

You realize that this game is nearly over, right?

One game today, and one game on Wednesday. I believe it was somehow related to the deal wherein TBS got the rights to the Wild Card games.

The extra wild card, or the 2-3 format?

Yeah, the latter is awful but it's just temporary (and was actually used for a while for the LCS in the 80s)...

2-3. Congrats on being the higher seed, Oakland. You get Verlander on the road!

I'm well aware of that. But Oakland earned being able to face him on their turf in game 1. They didn't get that.

While we wait for the Yankees and Orioles rain delay, here's the TBS Bruce Springsteen postseason promo video.

I love the hell out of the song (which is keeping it from annoying the **** out of me this month the way last year's WRITTEN IN THE STAAARS did), but some of the edits in here are weird and it really messes up the flow.

Today's Nats game was also the first Washington post season game since 1933.

....of course, DC had no team from 1972 through 2004.

So are the Reds that good or are the Giants just sucking that bad? I did pick the Reds to win the NL before the season, but I did not think they would win the first two in San Francisco that easily.

I think the format is just fine as the higher seed is 4-2 in the ALDS so far. When you include the WC games Friday, the home team is 2-6. Tigers only home team to win so far.
