    Last night we went out for a few drinks and I seriously had to keep my head on a swivel. You have the Cubs-Mets game on one TV, White Sox-Twins on another and of course the USC-Oregon State game... All three great games. I can't remember another Thursday like this in sports...

    Don't forget the brew crew game as well. It was a great sports thursday. Definitely one of the best in a long time.

    That's what you have to do when you're in the middle of a vicious ****-fight.....

    True, what an ending with the Braun walk off... Unfortunately, I had to settle for the highlights on that one...

    That Braun homer was pretty clutch.

    Question... If the Mets/Brewers/Phillies all have the same record after 162 would there then be 2 one game tiebreakers? One for the NL East and one for the wildcard? Thus 1 team would actually play 164 regular season games?

    I just read that if they are all tied at the end of the regular season, the Phillies would host the Mets for the division title, and the loser of that would host the Brewers for the Wild Card.

    Has that happened before?

    I beleive so... It will be really interesting as the Philles and Mets may not be able to get any games in these next few days.

    Mets have
    Pelphrey vs. Volsted - edge Marlins
    Nolasco vs. Niese - Huge edge Marlins
    Olsen vs. Santana - Edge Mets
    Alot of bad blood here from last year... Could be a Marlins sweep.

    Phillies have
    Balester vs. Blanton - edge Phillies
    Lannan vs. Moyer - edge Phillies
    Perez vs. Hamels - edge Phillies
    Washington has played tough in Philadelphia, but their young starters are starting to tire, pitching more innings than they ever have.

    Brewers have
    Dempster vs. Suppan - edge Cubs
    Lilly vs. Busch - edge Cubs
    Marquis vs. Sabathia - edge Brewers
    Brewers will be facing a beefed up version of the I-Cubs. Don't expect to see Dempster or Lilly out of the 5th. Could be a sweep for the Brew Crew.

    Totally agree with this post...I try to take some notes every night before I go to bed to steer me in a direction the next day for my show open, and last night's notes were along the lines of that being the best sports night in a long, long time

    So if the Mets and Phillies get washed out one or two days AND their is a tie it would be real messy...

    Would they consider delaying NLDS games a day?

    Agreed. Had my beer, burger, and head on a swivel watching those games last night at The Longest Yard in Valley Junction.

    Great night. :biggrin:

    Don't forget - even though the Dodgers lost, they did clinch the NL West yesterday. It was definitely a good day for me.

    If the Phillies and Brewers tie, I think they ought to have a UFC match between Fielder and Howard, granted, they would both be exhausted after 30 seconds, but I'm just sayin'

    A healthy Gabe Kapler and a Jayson Werth would be a better match... OR maybe Shane Victorino vs. Reekie Weeks.

    Since Jon doesn't really like baseball (hence complains about nothing to talk about in the summer), the reason why he thought it was a such a great night is because KF actually returned an
