Tickets still available for the NLCS

By

While the NLCS begins in six hours, there are still thousands of tickets left for Game 1, and Arizona officials say perhaps game 2 will sell out. That’s pretty pathetic.

    This NLCS has the potential to be the lowest rated posteason series ever.

    But don’t worry, I’m sure Chip Carey will make sure to mention over and over again how amazing those fans are and overhype the crap outta the teams. As if the match up wasn’t boring enough for me, having Carey do the play by play guarantees I will not watch it

      Boring? I don’t see that at all. The Rockies are the hottest team in baseball and the D-Backs were the best team over the course of the regular season. What more do you want?

        Theyre still the Rockies and D-backs. Sure, the game could be good, but I could honestly care less about either team. I guess I could try and drum up some bitterness towards the D-backs form 2001, but it would be contrived. Meh

    Actually I’m torn on this — I like watching the Rockies, but you’re right — having to listen to Chip Caray again makes it unlikely I will. God that TBS thing was awful!

    My question is who actually (network wise) does a decent broadcast, for any sport??! Of the top of my head its really hard to pinpoint exactly one.

    Fox = god awful i dont even want to mention “you know who”
    TBS = a fat cheeseburger, candy ass, and a retarded manager walk into a bar…
    ESPN = dumb and dumber
    YES = we all hate Kay, Girardi is a better asset in the dugout, Singleton is meh, Bobby is Bobby but cant do play by play.
    SNY = Keith is too busy sniffing his highlighters during the game to comment on anything in an intelligent manner.

    One of the best that I can think of is the local Fox Soccer Channel team that does the Premiership games every weekend because english announcers know when to shut up and when to paint a picture … but for our sports here in the states i have no fuckin clue..

      well, the worst is easy: Fox, followed by ESPN & TBS. Local stations are always better.

    The TBS broadcasts themselves are pretty good (they don’t cut away to 17 million graphics between pitches like FOX), it’s just the announcers that suck. It’s their first year doing it, so I suspect it’ll get better. TBS broadcasts have “tremendous upside potential” as Hubie Brown would say.
