NLDS Game One Thread: Rockies @ Phillies


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.


  1. Who in the hell are these guys?

  2. Dela G says:

    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 says:

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

  3. Dela G says:

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

    he throws some wicked moving 96-98mph fastball

  4. Frank1979 says:

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

  5. Dela G says:

    cliff lee just got lucky there

    very Dice-BB esqe

    Whats with the gay techno music?

  7. Mike Axisa says:

    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.

  8. Drew says:


    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.

  9. Ray says:

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

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

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

  10. Mike Axisa says:

    Ubaldo’s filthy. Just disgusting.

  11. Salty Buggah says:

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

  12. Salty Buggah says:

    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.

  13. Drew says:

    Umpires are funny.

  14. Brazilian Yankee says:

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

  15. pete says:

    i heart ubaldo

  16. TheLastClown says:

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

  17. Salty Buggah says:

    Haha, Howard trying to steal?

  18. Zack says:

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

  19. dkidd says:

    jason werth looks like a veloceraptor

  20. Evan says:

    Where’s Werth’s mother?


  21. Drew says:

    Keep the ball in front of you. Holy shit.

  22. Evan says:

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

  23. pat says:

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

  24. Doug says:

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