Live Blog: World Series Game 6

Can the Yanks win their 27th world championship? Can the Phillies force a game seven in the Bronx? I haven’t the slightest idea. But I do know that Joe Buck and Tim McCarver are bound to say a mountain of stupid things. So meet back here at 7:30 sharp for all the mockery!

Live Blog: World Series Game 4

Because you demanded it (you = me), once again I shall be live blogging the World Series. Game 4, aka Citizens Bank Park on Patrol, will feature CC Sabathia versus Joe Blanton–a matchup for the ages! I’m sure it will also feature more cheap homers than you can shake a stick at. Just a hunch.

So meet back here at 7:30pm NY time for all the Buck and McCarver mockery you can stand!

Update 10.30: Thanks to everyone who participated in this glorious live event! If you want to see what you missed or relive the glory, just press that little play button below.

Original post:

Hey fans! Much as I enjoyed last night’s live-bloggery, I felt my
method of doing so was a tad clunky and not quite dynamic enough method
of keeping up with the action. I wanted something that allowed more
verbage than tweeting, but sacrificed immediacy in the process.

So
now live blogging is back and better than ever! I’ve improved the
live-blogging interface for tonight’s Pedro vs. Burnett action, by the
means of that gray box down there. Oh yes, you’re welcome.

So
come back ’round 7:30pm EST and keep yer browser right here this
evening for hot World Series action! No more refreshing! No more
constant Twitter updates! (RSS feed here for supernerds.) And you can comment along with me! IF YOU DARE.

Live Blog: World Series Game 1

buckmccarver.jpg As a Mets fan, can I ignore the World Series just because it features two teams I don’t like? Of course not! This is still the World Series, and I intend to watch every inning. This is part of baseball history, unfolding before our eyes. Plus, maybe someone will get horribly injured on live TV!

So keep your eyes on this space, for I shall be live-blogging this whole grotesque event for posterity! God help us all!

All live blog posts in chronological order, after the jump.

11:08: K-Rod looked good, for the most part. Much better than he’s looked in actual Mets games of late.

I vote we place a moratorium on those Bud commercials with that Jet song. The tune has approached near-“Vertigo” levels of annoying ubiquity.

Mariano sets ’em down 1-2-3, and the NL is 0 for the decade (and then some). And I shall repair to my bed, to dream of the years of senior circuit dominance gone by.

11:08: How on earth did Angel Hernandez get on the umpiring crew for the ASG? He’s gotta be the worst ump in the game, by a huge margin. And a total douche to boot.

As Will Carroll pointed out, why did McCarver pick Adrian Gonzalez giving $250K to his alma mater’s baseball team as an example of good-guy-ism? Lot more worthy causes in
the world, Tim.

Ryan Howard strands runners at the corners. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen him strike out on a total junk pitch in the dirt. Dude can not just lay off it.

10:52:
Heath Bell has taken over Trevor Hoffman’s role in San Diego–including
melting down when it really counts. Curtis Granderson triple and Adam Jones sac fly puts the AL back on top.

McCarver’s trying to sell us on the “value” of Kevin Youkilis. Is he a used car?
