Viva Las Vegas

Caught some of both Cubs/Sox games from Vegas. Good to see some of the new faces and old favorites. Too bad we lost both games, but still exciting this afternoon when the Cubs were down 4-0 going into the bottom of the 9th and managed to come up with 3 runs.

That’s what I LOVE about baseball . . . it’s never over ’til it’s over . . . there’s no clock to race . . . just hitters battling pitchers.

Too bad that of the six Spring Training games to be broadcast on WGN, three are scheduled within these four days (last night, this afternoon, Saturday afternoon). Far cry from the days when every Cubs game was on WGN. In fact of the 201 games this year, less than 1/3 will be on WGN. The rest on channels I don’t/can’t get: Comcast SportsNet, MLB.TV, MLBNetwork OR on FOX or ESPN (crapshoot whether they will show a particular game in a particular region, so can’t expect to see those either). I used to (pre-2006) listen via Gameday Audio on the internet, but then MLB “upgraded” everything so that it no longer works on my computer.

SO, I’ll follow along the best I can and watch/listen to the Twins games to get my necessary baseball fix.

Will save my commentary on the Milton Bradley situation (pretty much as I expected) for a later post.
