...as is this series. Pirates control their own destiny. Win 2 of 3 and we have a home game. Anything else and we are going to GABP. Funny, but as of yesterday, game time for the game on Tuesday had not been determined. ????? Anyone know anything about it? 8-) 8-) 8-)

From what I recall, the NL w.c. game is on Tuesday and the AL w.c. game is on Wednesday. Pretty sure that TBS has the rights to televise it. It should be a prime time evening game.

Every game we play for the rest of the season is the biggest game in the past 20 years.

I don't think they will set an "official time" until they have a location! Win tonight, and we should know what time our game will be at PNC on Tuesday.

It's been about 21 years since I've had that anxious/nervous feeling about a baseball game. I'd forgotten what this feels like.
Glad to welcome it back!

The first game of the series to decide home field advantage for the WCG is "bigger" than the WCG itself? Disagreed.
