One of the great benefits of working from home is being able to watch daytime events, like Playoff Baseball and the NCAA Tournament, without having to come up with new lies every year to tell to your boss. I always love to help those out who are stuck at work, or don’t have access to the game, so this spot will serve as your goto for updates, quotes and videos of the game.
Dave O’Brien, Orel Hershiser and Steve Phillips are on the call for the game airing on ESPN2 and your pitching matchup is Freddy Garcia against Gavin Floyd. Leave your predictions and thoughts in the comment section and I’ll update this spot throughout the game.
Update: The tarp is on the field and we’re looking at a bit of a rain delay. Dave O’Brien promises Baseball in a few, so I’ll update you when I know what the start time is.
Update #2: It’s 5pm and we’re underway! Orel Hershiser is talking about energy bars and eight track players for some reason. They must have gone stir-crazy during this three hour delay. If anything exciting goes down I’ll be sure to grab the video and put it up in this spot. If not, I’ll see you for Monday Night Football.
Update #3: Alexei Ramirez broke a 2-2 with a grand slam in the sixth and the White Sox are currently batting in the bottom of the 8th. I’ll have video of that and the final few outs up shortly following the game.
Update #4: The Sox win it 8-2 and there will be a one-game Playoff tomorrow with the Twins coming to Chicago. The game will air on on TBS at 7:30pm.
