Scheduling details emerge for 2009
RAB Fantasy Football League

The USA Olympic baseball lost 10-2 to Cuba this morning in the semifinal round, meaning Team USA will take on Japan in the bronze-medal game later tonight. SDSU phenom Stephen Strasburg started, but didn’t make it out of the 5th, while relievers Jeff Stevens and Blaine Neal combined to cough up 6 runs in the 8th, putting the game out of reach.

Either Brett Anderson or Jake Arrieta will take the mound for the red, white & blue tonight, while Japan will throw some kid named Yu Darvish. Cuba will take on Korea in the gold medal game tomorrow evening.

        thanks for the help.

        i just dont understand why, with like 15 NBC channels, they cant put this on one of them live.

      nevermind, looked it up.

      streaming online live, and they’ll be televising it on a tape delay at 2am on USA. how convenient.

    I can’t believe it’s not televised on one of the NBC channels. They had handball on MSNBC, why can’t they put this up. I want to get a look at Yu.
