NLDS Game One Thread: Rockies @ Phillies

For the ALDS, a Nostalgia Train and more Metro-North trips
We've met before, haven't we?

Even though last night’s riveting Twins-Tigers game was for all intents a purposes a playoff game, the postseason officially gets underway today. Cliff Lee (14-13, 3.22) and the Phillies are at home taking on the Rockies, who are sending Ubaldo Jimenez (15-12, 3.47) to the bump. If you’re an ESPN insider, you can check out KLaw’s series preview here. TBS is carrying the game, and first pitch is scheduled for 2:37pm. Use this thread to chat about the game while we wait for the Yanks to start their own playoff series a little later this evening.

    Who in the hell are these guys?

      “Rock-ies?”

  • Dela G

    am i the only one who’s MLB.tv is actually working for the playoffs too?

    i didn’t pay a dime and i am getting this playoff baseball on top of the 99 i paid for MLB.tv

    • Clayton

      Are you getting the regular broadcast or the postseason.tv? I am getting just the postseason.tv with some weird camera angles.

  • Dela G

    Ubaldo Jiminez has the best fastball i’ve seen this year

    he throws some wicked moving 96-98mph fastball

      Thats why I wanted Detroit to win. The baseball fan in me wants to see the Yankees hit against Verlander

    • Peedlum

      I can’t get the full feed, just the video from a camera angle of my choosing along with the audio. Its sorta half-assed and stupid. I get the exclusivity in the agreement with TBS, but believe me, if I could watch the game on a tv I would.

      • Peedlum

        Sorry, went under the wrong comment.

  • Frank1979

    Hey question for anybody…What if this Rockies-Phillies game goes past 6pm? Does the Yankee game temporarily shift to another channel?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph Pawlikowski

      When that happened in 2007 the Yanks started on TNT.

      • Frank1979

        Cool, thanks Joe!

      • Chris

        That better not happen… I get TBS, but not TNT.

        • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

          What craptastic cable package gives you one but not the other?

          • Chris

            It’s Time Warners basic cable package. Just 24 channels, but I get the networks and ESPN so there’s really no need for more. I couldn’t bring myself to spend $50 a month more just for YES…

      Oh god its playing again. Whos genius idea was this?

        Ask the radio operator in your cerebellum to turn down the music.

        It’ll all be ok.

    Am I the only one with a bad feed? It freezes for about 3 seconds every so often. It did it last night, but it’s worse today.

    I haven’t tried the regular channel, as far as I know it’s just the HD feed.

    • dkidd

      tbs feed driving me frank caliendo levels of crazy

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      On mlbtv? Mine is not working so great, either. Same problems.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      My HD feed was fine last night and today too.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    lol

    Do umpires even watch what happens or do they just close their eyes and guess? I see the shitty umping we’ve seen all season has carried over to last nights and today’s game.

  • Ray

    wow how did the ump miss that call? The Play wasn’t even the least bit close.

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      It doesn’t matter if he tagged him. He was out because the ball was there before the runner.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Ubaldo’s filthy. Just disgusting.

    • Salty Buggah

      My favorite non-Yankee pitcher

  • Salty Buggah

    Even though he made an out there, can we please somehow get Fowler from the Rox? How about Melky/Gardy/Kennedy/Some weaker prospects?

    • Zack

      that makes no sense for colorado to do that

      • Salty Buggah

        I know, I was just joking about that. But I really really want Fowler.

        • Chris

          Why?

          I can understand the general desire to have him as he’ll probably develop into a pretty good player, but so will Austin Jackson. For right now, both Melky and Gardner are better.

  • Salty Buggah

    Mike do you think Gonzalez’s breakout this year was for real? I know this is his potential but he had not shown anything yet. This year, all of a sudden he starts to mash like crazy.

    • Mode:Theif and Lair

      More importantly, is “Buggah” slang for Bugger or Booger? I’m hoping for the latter.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

        I’m hoping for the former.

        *shifty eyes*

      • Salty Buggah

        Hmmm, never thought of that. I don’t know.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      I don’t think he can be that good over a full season, but he’s arrived.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    Umpires are funny.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Gotta love them umps robbing the Rockies. Two bad calls in 3 innings.

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      Ubaldo just brushes the dirt off his shoulder and gets the strikeout anyway.

      • Brazilian Yankee

        He’s a bad mofo!

  • pete

    i heart ubaldo

  • TheLastClown

    Eh, Cliff Lee beat the ball to the bag. Didn’t matter if he got tagged.

    • pete

      moreover, he’s white and doesn’t throw too hard. he should get a call or two here and there for grittiness

  • Salty Buggah

    Haha, Howard trying to steal?

  • Zack

    i love watching a network with a real radar gun and kzone up for every pitch

      +1
      Hopefully next year YES will get their shit together.

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      Not to mention that the scoring bug is up and ready right away. I still can’t believe how YES after all these years still has a delay between the start of the inning and when the bug shows up on the screen.

    Keep the ball in front of you. Holy shit.

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Did the camera miss that ball by a bunch or what?

  • pat

    has it really been this long without a comment or is my internet messed up?

    • pat

      i guess it’s been a while.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    Damn, Lee is 2 outs away from a complete game.
