I’m live blogging game 1 of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and (Claire’s) Los Angeles Dodgers.
Top of the second…
5:59 p.m. – Max is stalking!
6:03 p.m. – 10 pitches…that’s the way to bounce back, Max!
6:06 p.m. – These announcers on FOX never shut up. Leave a little “space” in the conversation, guys.
6:07 p.m. – And I’ll say it for F.P. “There goes the no hitter.” What’s a little 3-week layoff. Nothing for Murphy!
6:09 p.m. – Less than 10 minutes after talking about what a key Harper is for the Nationals, Harold Reynolds says Rendon and Zimmerman are the keys tonight. How many keys can one game have?
6:12 p.m. – Okay…let’s wear out Kershaw and get him to throw a lot of pitches. We’re going to be over 30 by the end of the second…assuming it takes Danny at least three to strike out. Prove me wrong, K-Street.
6:14 p.m. – But he doesn’t. Why, oh why, is Espinosa still playing?
6:15 p.m. – The Dodgers just found out that Severino is a lot faster than Ramos!
6:17 p.m. – We’re only in the second, and I’m already sick of Harold’s voice. Where are Bob and F.P. when you need them!
6:27 p.m. – Harold “doesn’t want to harp on a point”…and then proceeds to harp on it for another 30-45 seconds.
6:28 p.m. – Well, Max isn’t exactly shutting them down. 2-0 Dodgers. Harold seems to think that Max is missing Wilson. Hmmm… Thankfully, Kershaw doesn’t look like he’s totally invincible tonight.
6:31 p.m. – Damn. 2-run homer. 4-0 Dodgers. Ouch. Not sure Kershaw is that invincible.
6:33 p.m. – Okay, let’s get some of this back. We’ll start a new thread.
More to come…
