Does anyone know who is carrying the one game playoff on Monday for the NL wild card (Pads vs. Rocks)--i know ESPN Radio will have it (and I have XM)--but who is carrying it on TV?? Is anyone?? Or will it only be available to Extra Innings subscribers??

Yeah, I just don't want the Padres to win, because they are the exact opposite of the Reds.:)

I dont think ESPN is carrying it---they are not carrying any of the postseason on TV--and they sure did not promote any TV coverage during the 6pm Baseball Tonight--and they dont miss any opportunity to "pimp" their programming.

Thanks GoReds---do you have an actual first pitch time?? (Not pre-game)--Ive got a bad ffeling about TBS coverage--as much as we knock ESPN; I wish they were covering the division series..

Should be an interesting game, anyone know who's got the call for tbs? I'll take the Padres to win just because Peavy is pitching.

I will also be pulling for the Rockies. I would like to see Colorado make the play-offs.

Was it just me or were the announcers for the Rockies/Padres game on TBS really sub-par?

It wasn't just you. Those guys were horrible.

I disagree--i found the announcers for the monday tiebreaker on TBS refreshing---no over hyperbole (like Tim McCarver is prone) or needless profiles (wives, families, etc)--just emphasis on the game...I think I may have protested too much about TBS having the division series....the only minus I found was (sadly) Cal Ripken Jr's "analysis" during Gamebreaks...he didnt add anything and didnt seem prepared..

I'll agree with you about the lack of needless side-stories during the game. It definitely was refreshing to hear them focus on the game.

And while I'm not a fan of hyperbole, I still like to hear them put a little emotion into their calls. It was like they weren't even at the game. Their impartiality was good, but their delivery was bland.

Anyway...the game itself is the most important thing.

I understand the bland comment...Orsillo and Simpson arent going to inflate the "wow" meter...but during the playoffs, I must admit I view it like umpires...as long as they dont screw up and dont make the game about themselves; theyve done a good job....I must admit I am interested in what announcing combos the other series will bring....
