Chad fans, big news. Chad Part 4 will premiere on Good Morning, America on October 11. What a statement on America. Nobody's Watching gets picked up to run on TV. Now this. Anyone wanna invest in YouTube?
This week's theme:
If I saw right yesterday, the Dodgers managed to make two outs at home plate... within about 2 seconds of each other. (I need video of this.) Quote of the day (now that would be a good new section for the blog) goes to Sports Center. "One run won't score! Two runs won't score!"
The Mets are without Pedro and El Duckie, and Brad Penny looked like a minor league hack yesterday. The thing about playoff baseball is that it can turn into "Ummmm, who here can still pitch?" The desperation factor is fun to watch, but it makes for some bad baseball. A little historical proof. The Mets are seriously talking about running guys out like Steve Trachsel (this guy is baseball's version of the nuclear cockroach... he just... won't... die...) and Oliver Perez as starters. The Dodgers will counter with some kid I've never heard of.
In linking to Trachsel, I found this gem. A site dedicated to shutting up Tim McCarver. I should write a "lighter side of baseball" blog.
Oakland's finally gonna win a playoff series. After all, they're up 2-0, Just like 2001 and 2003, and they've been up on Minnesota before too. They'll be fine.
The Tigers got rained out.
