Only one word to describe tonight's game...



Game of the year. Hell of a display for Braun and Fielder in front of a national audience.

2 random points of awesomeness from watching the ESPN telecast:

-Phillips and Schulman were calling the game and had Uecker on in the 4th inning, mainly to talk about the 20th anniversary of "Major League." I'm paraphrasing what was said exactly but at one point Uecker was just thanking the guys for letting him be there and he says "Thanks Stevie and...(pause) you too (in reference to Schulman)." Now, I can't be sure...but that sounded like he forgot Schulman's name. It's just like Harry Doyle in Major League...
"Hello Tribe fans, Harry Doyle here along with Monty...uhh...what's his name."

-Later that game they had Peter Pascarelli on the broadcast. His very first words were "I just miss Oral." Needless to say, from his outside appearance, I bet Peter has "missed Oral" for quite a long period of time. Zing!

Too bad most of the national audience probably turned it off during the couple times it was a 5 run lead.

Hoffman can't throw the changeup for strikes anymore. That is worrying.

I don't know if it is he can't throw it for strikes or if guys have stopped swinging at it. That pitch isn't designed to cross the plate in the strike zone. Last night, Francisco laid off a couple that guys have been swinging at all season. There were two hard hit outs in the 9th last night.

Peter Pascarelli was just brutal.

You can tell from his comments that he doesn't even like baseball even though he has made a good income from it.

Nothing like critzing a guy that hs an ERA of like .3, is like 17/17in saves. Yeah his change up sucks.
