The floor of Punter's Pub
Tomorrow night’s game time temperature is supposed to be about 40 degrees. Yikes!
Good thing they're playing inside!

From Wikipedia

The stadium has a retractable roof, built in a unique fan-shaped style, with the roof panels opening and closing simultaneously in a sweeping manner from the first- and third-base sides toward center field. The complex and massive roof was a significant factor in the $392 million cost of the stadium. It allows the seating area to be heated 30 °F warmer than the outside temperature when closed, allowing games to be played in inclement weather and in more comfortable conditions than an open-air stadium. The idea of the stadium having a retractable roof had been considered right away in the initial design, as to help counter the unpredictable Wisconsin weather in the early spring and late autumn.

Brewers, really? Wade Miley is their game 2 starter. Wade Miley.
He's been good. Boggles the mind.

Everything has changed. I’m not kidding, each pitch in his arsenal has taken a sizeable leap or tumble in its pitch usage, from a massive reduction in sinkers and four-seamers in favor of cutters, while his slider is being marginalized by his changeup and curveball.

Love this ballpark, seen a few games there and looking forward to the game. No stress, I guess I'm pulling for the Dodgers but really unemotional about it either way. The stress starts tomorrow.

Watching the pre-game show on FS1. Somewhere along the line Big Papi and A-Rod made a bet that the loser would wear the uniform of the winning team of the NY/Bos series and be doused with champagne by the winner. So Papi will be spraying A-Rod while wearing a Red Sox uniform. This is video that will definitely need to be seen and shared.

Between his very good commentary and willing to have a little fun, A-Rod is becoming somewhat likeable.
Never thought I'd say that after Slappy

This is supposed to be at the end of today’s show?

Edit, Arod disappeared. I think it’s happening.

Looking forward to sitting down and watching a playoff baseball game that doesn’t come with the threat of a massive heart attack.

I wonder how Marlins man feels going to all these games and the Marlins being light years away from getting to a LCS?

Reminds me of that Grantland piece that was a fake letter to Kershaw from Pedro comparing their best seasons in which fake-Pedro was like “Granted, you had the extra obstacle of facing the pitcher and having to worry about the embarrassment of giving up a hit to him. I didn’t have to worry about that.”
