TV and weather
Sorry I’ve been less on top of things lately. Between the travel and the longer days at the park, it’s a little harder to squeeze in time for the blog. But I wanted to put a couple thoughts in y’all’s heads going forward.
First, for all who have groaned over the past couple years because of the Cardinals’ seeming second-class status in the eyes of FOX, that’s not the case this time around. The NLCS is the clear choice of FOX over the ALCS, airing in prime time for every game except possibly Game 6. In the event that the ALCS had a Game 7, then Game 6 of this series would be in the afternoon. Otherwise, no need to skip work to watch the games.
Second, something that those of you not in NY may not be aware of — the weather. Apparently the forecast calls for decent chances of rain over these two days. While that would be absurdly frustrating for those of us who don’t fly on charters, it could benefit the Cards. If Game 2 were bumped back to Friday due to a rainout, Chris Carpenter could go in Games 2 and 6, rather than 3 and 7. Just something to be aware of; I don’t really expect rainouts, but it’s something to have in the back of your head.
-M, in Queens.
