I believe they also have the ALCS too.

In any event, the start times for these games are a joke. I don't get how MLB thinks starting the Cincinnati-SF game at 4:07 east coast time, 1:07 out west, is going to see large ratings.

Not Good News, I thought it was just a 1st round and divisional round thing

Keys for the game for Tigers' pitcher Anibal Sanchez.

Get to the 8th inning.

So the key to the game is to pitch well enough not to get pulled before the 8th? Brilliant!!!!!

Does anybody know what that blue box is, on the right side of she screen? Right after each pitch, a round white shape gets flashed in the box. Usually, if the pitch is a called strike, the white spot is out n the black, and it it's called a ball, the white spot is in the blue area. Anybody know the significance of that?

For example, Ibanez just drew a 5-pitch walk, and only one of the five white spots was outside the blue box. Last night, one hitter drew a 4-pitch walk, and all four of the spots were squarely within the box, barely touching the edge..

There is no significance of it just another pointless graphic by TBS trying to be creative.

Usually? Jtur must be watching a different game than I am.

If Jtur is trying to insinuate that something is wrong with the graphic, he may want to consider that it's actually the umpire's that are calling pitches outside of the definition strike zone.

You're not putting yourself in the best company...



BTW...the Giant/Cardinal game is on Fox. Wanna switch over there and time yourself on how long it takes to figure out the game state?
