ESPN's been doing the crazy camera angle thing all year. Very annoying.

At least there's no Bottom Line obscuring the bottom part of the screen with European soccer scores and NFL news tonight.

Its called the bad angle shmangle

In a no-win situation from the perspective of a Reds fan I was leaning towards the Pirates until the fans started chanting Cueto.

He beat you on Sunday and forced you into this game, morons.

I keep checking this thread and twitter hoping to read, "OH MY GOD I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY CAME BACK" but alas, Pirates.

Giants advance to the NLDS with an 8-0 shutout over the Pirates.

Madison Bumgarner with the shutout, complete game win and 10 strikeouts tonight.

I somehow knew within 30 seconds of hearing him talk that Madison Bumgarner was from North Carolina.

NO bullpen use in the Wild Card game. This couldn't have gone any better for the Giants.

Good win over a good team.

I'm really excited to see the Giants play the Nats this time around. That's gonna be quite the challenge for them.

In honor of Adam Dunn retiring here's my favorite Adam Dunn moment.

Let me set the stage. End of June 2006. Reds are clinging to a slim hold on the wildcard (they would finish 80-82, but that's not important). go to the bottom of the 8th down 7-0 to Cleveland. They score 4 runs in the 8th, three of those thanks to light hitting Juan Castro hitting a three run home run. The Indians add an 8th run in the top of the 9th. The Reds plate a fifth run in the 9th to get to 8-5 and with two outs Dunn comes up with the bases loaded

I've seen a few walkoff grand slams, but this is the only one I was watching live where a team needed all four runs to win. I lost my mind.

OK, wasn't expecting that. I'm very thrilled that the Giants were not only able to get the victory (because we're generally terrible at PNC Park), but I'm also doubly thrilled that they were able to do it in a fashion like that!

Congrats to the Pirates and their fans for an excellent season. Now, on to the District of Colombia!

Most of the NLDSs are on Fox Sports 1, as will most of the NLCS. Game 2 of Cardinals-Dodgers is only on the MLB Network. Dodgers fans are used to being dicked around by the money machine like this, but I hope the Best Fans In Baseball have more than basic cable.

Either throw no hitters or hope Iannetta gets better defensively.

This is gonna be a good postseason.

I'm salivating at the thought of a Detroit-Kansas City ALCS.

And really salivating at the thought of a Dodgers-Nationals NLCS for two reasons: it rids me of the two teams I'm absolutely terrified of (Cards and Giants) and sets up the possibility of a Tigers-Nationals series, with Dougie Fister in their rotation.
