It's viewing for the west coast viewer and I'm real happy for it. MLB must of gotten the Cardinals to go along with it for one game only...?
Colangelo I guess turned down a slot for a 10am MST/PDT start because that's real lousy time locally. Batting practice at 7:30am or 8:00am for a playoff game for the defending WS champs. How many people would show up for that game?
I couldn't be an east coast sports viewer. Games are on too late. I remember seeing the Brewers/Angels playoff series in 1982 and a Larry Holmes PPV fight in 1980 and those were on real late for a kid in junior high school. MNF was on at 9 and that was bedtime at that time. When I went back to VA Beach in 1989 on vacation in college, I remember watching NBA playoff games until 1am on TNT. Yuck! I'm real happy about Tuesday. Wednesday's Angels game looks like it might be at night too. I just have to worry about Friday's game.
Angels, A's, Braves and D'backs are my picks.
Angels, Twins, Giants and Cardinals are my wishes because you want the Angels to face the "weaker" teams further in the playoffs if they make it that far!!
