I got a bad feeling about this.

/Go Tribe

And since Olbermann is calling the game, Larry King is filling in for him again tonight on ESPN.  Last night's rant on Umpires and the Strike Zone was great.

Go Rays! Loser stays at home! Sorry CE.

Did they manage to sell out the ballpark tonight?

If I were the Red Sox, I'd be rooting for the Indians to take this one. Not that Cleveland is a bad team (which I will totally admit to being wrong about before the season started), but Tampa Bay looks like a pretty formidable opponent when David Price and Matt Moore are going right.

Over a 5 game series I think I'd rather have Tampa, over a 7 game series give me the Indians.

I have not watched KO in years.He is back where he should be.I love his show on ESPN.

You know there's a chance of back to back heartbreak in Cleveland with the Thursday night game. And yet, it feels like God just doesn't want to embarrass Cleveland anymore. Sure I think TB is going to win, but where's the fun. Cleveland needs to get up 2-0 and then lose 3 straight to get back to old school smiting.

Cleveland fans: if we have good feelings, that's when we should really worry.

Two good starters can give you a three wins over a 5 game series. Two close wins upfront means the Rays just have to take one of three.

Sold out about an hour after game #162.

huh.. Braves took Uggla off the NLDS roster

Tampa's is an even bigger one, so...

Is Rodney still their closer? He's actually a really nice guy, just comes across as a bit thuggish because of the way he wars his cap.


He comes across as an ass because of that stupid archer thing he does.

They should have automated the calling of balls and strikes fifteen years ago, it might have kept me watching.  I invariably turn off a baseball game after the first time the ump blatantly blows a strike call.  It usually doesn't take long.
 
2013-10-02 08:15:59 PM  
One pitch, one out. Michael Bourn: the ultimate leadoff hitter.
 
2013-10-02 08:16:10 PM  
This seems as good a place as any to post this. MLB TV is not available in my area. Therefore, I can not watch Friday's Pirates game.

Any suggestions?
 
2013-10-02 08:18:16 PM  
wow.. ump shenanigans already
 
2013-10-02 08:18:37 PM  
That didn't take long for a possible wrong call.
 
2013-10-02 08:18:51 PM  
..and hey, they got it right after conference!

I just ask that the ump call it consistently. If something's a strike for one team, make sure it's a strike for the other team too.

Go into Friday's thread, ask for Alberto Del Rio's help; maybe hang out in the VIP TV section of the internet
 
2013-10-02 08:19:37 PM  
sit down, Tito
 
2013-10-02 08:21:06 PM  
Wow...... they admited that they had the call wrong to begin with
 
2013-10-02 08:23:01 PM  
Is it just me or is the mic that handles the home plate sound doubled up?  Whats with that?

It's not just you. TBS sucks.
 
2013-10-02 08:28:56 PM  
Salazar is throwing stupid gas right now, if he keeps that slider working...wow!
 
2013-10-02 08:32:08 PM  
Is the audio off or is it just me?

I hear the crack of the bat with the ball halfway to home plate.
 
2013-10-02 08:32:15 PM  

Beer cap: I'd be happy if umps called the high strike. Why do so many act like the strike zone stops at the belt?


If you look at heat maps of balls and strikes by count, umps are over 60% more likely to call a pitch a strike on a 3-0 count than on an 0-2 count.  They don't want to be the deciding factor, even though it's their job.

Thus, as an Ohio resident, I'm happy I have Tom Hamilton as an option...for those not familiar, a guide:

because TBS sucks

1-0 Rays, Young solo HR

How does Delmon Young keep finding his way to the postseason?
 
2013-10-02 08:43:33 PM  
Go Tribe!
 
2013-10-02 08:49:04 PM  
I don't care what anyone says...I like Joe Simpson. He does a really good job and I'm glad he gets a chance to do postseason games.
 
2013-10-02 08:51:31 PM  
I'm glad everyone else is hearing the audio before seeing it. I thought u was going crazy. The weird thing is the replay bumps going into commercial seemed synced. It's like the center field camera isn't synced. I wonder if the audio and the high home plate camera are synced.

I found this yesterday and it's been working great. The feed's out of the UK so the commercials are odd.

Thanks, forgot about that one. bookmarked.

Make it 3-0 Rays.
 
2013-10-02 09:13:10 PM  
Yup, here comes the Cleveland heartache again.

Double for the Tribe, hopefully they've got something going.

robsul82: Double for the Tribe, hopefully they've got something going.


This just feels like a boring 4-1 game.
 
2013-10-02 09:26:24 PM  
Is TBS sweetening the audio for this game? Certain sounds come off different than usual broadcasts. Santana's double sounded like a gunshot when he made contact.

Also, the catcher's mitt has some reverb to it.
 
2013-10-02 09:27:47 PM  
great hustle and safe.
