2 Playoff Angry Fan Notes

1) Is any other National League Fan angry with the percentage of coverage the NCLS is getting. Sure the ALCS has been great, extra-innings, lots of drama. But last night here are the two scenarios

- at home, the team favored to win, wins their second game at home in extra innings to stave off elimination for one more game
- at home, the team NOBODY thought would win, takes the series lead with a three run home run in the bottom of the ninth, after 8 1/2 innings of shutout ball from the most improbable pitchers against potent lineups.

I'm sorry but scenario #2 is more compelling. Anyone else here not think that even if the Yanks/Sox was a regular ol 5-3 or 6-2 game that it still would have gotten the lead coverage?

2) Rivera's "blown save" - Saying he blew two games in a row is ignoring the fact he came in with runners at first and third and no outs and was perfect through 2. What else can you expect from the guy? He's still great, this falls totally on Gordon, but I hear nary a mention of that. (or of the Pedro at 100 pitch craziness - THANK GOD. I'd be pleased if I were you that the Red Sox won just because you don't have to hear more of that crap.
