The MLB Playoff Push Is Upon Us

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Near the end of every Baseball season, networks scramble to pick up some of the games in the Playoff race, and this year is no different. We saw some of it last weekend, but the real fun will start this Friday night. TBS has decided to pick up the Red Sox-Yankees game that evening, with Chip Caray and Buck Martinez on the call.

The MLB Network will also air a BOS-NYY game (today, 3:30pm), as well showing the Tigers, Twins, Cardinals and Rockies, in the coming week. Add to that the FOX and ESPN schedules and you have one heck of a Baseball weekend. Here's a schedule for you....

Wednesday, September 23rd

Yankees at Angels - TBD (MLB-N, 3:30pm)
Phillies at Florida Marlins - Dave O'Brien and Rick Sutcliffe (ESPN, 7pm)
Giants at Diamondbacks - Dan Shulman and Joe Morgan (ESPN, 10pm)

What game (or games) will ESPN air next Wednesday? My guess is Minnesota-Detroit, as it has the most importance. St. Louis, NY, Boston and Philly will have clinched by then, so their games become glorified exhibition games prepping for the playoffs.

It's Rod Allen, not Ron Allen.

Yeah, no need to have a do-over of Kermit the Frog & Rod Allen on a broadcast ever again.

Tigers do not play at the Twins on Saturday. They are at Chicago.

They are also at Chicago on Sunday.

And it is Rod Allen.
