In general, I thought the coverage was about where I hoped it would come out -- informed, calm, non-accusatory, balanced, big-picture. Put responsibility about where it probably belonged (mostly pitching) without going ballistic.
I especially liked the commentary from the likes of Mike R that we had focused on the Rangers' "story" to the near-total exclusion of the Cardinals' "story," and that had been our mistake.
So I gots nothing too profound here. Feel free to offer sportsy baseball commentary as well as Ticket commentary, and if you have a thought on the TV coverage, that would also be welcome. Here's a very mild one: I've never thought much of Tim McCarver, going back a long time. His observations have always seemed generic and obvious to me, but I guess we could have worse color guys. Contrary to some of the Ticket hosts, I thought A.J. Pierzynski gave the Fox presentation a needed jolt. Yeah, he looks kind of spiky, and I hear he has been voted putz-of-the-year or something by MLB players, but I thought his observations were fresh.
We haven't heard any of The Ticket's regular programming apres-Series as of this posting, so please return and post your thoughts on what our weekday warriors have had to say as the broadcast week gets underway.
Me, I'm getting ready for The Ticket's "unofficial" Cowboys pre-game show. (They've started to call it that on promos -- I wonder if The Fan complained to someone about that.)

[PS: There seems to be some controversy over whether Danny B has received some kind of formal appointment as "weekend program director." Anon D says no, it's a bit; a couple of other commenters seem fairly certain that it has happened. Can anyone shed any light on this?]
Hits way way up the last few weeks. My gratitude to the Nation. The party's only getting started.
As always, don't worry about jacking the thread. If you've got something else on your mind, let us hear from you. You can also email me at ThePlainsman1310@gmail.com. I am not case-sensitive.
