  1. Also have to remember that for along time it was just the World Series between NL and AL and no other playoffs. Then you had just the AL and NL championship series do there were a lot less playoffs to show.

    I don't recall any week-day , day WS games myself.  But I recall watching Bucky F'n Dent go yard during the day.

    I remember in 90 I was at IU East and the NL playoffs,  I skipped a class to watch the Reds and Pirates game.

    So... 

    6 teams in each league. 1+2 seeds get a bye.... 

    3 vs 6

    4 vs 5 

    in a 3 game series..... winners plays the 1+2 seeds in a 5 game set. 

    Past that its regular. 

    Look... I have no idea how it was or the game times long ago. I'm sure it was awesome watching games or listening to them mid day and what not. I bet it was like friggin Xmas, I would have been BEGGING to stay home from school haha... 

    Anyways.. I simply like this better than the one game playoff. Jmo. 

    It was like staying home from work to watch the NCAA tournament every year. I don't think week day games of the world series was played in the day when I were growing up. I remember weekend games being played during the day

    @The Daily Hoosier's take on Nebraska

    Great read as always...This is a mystery team to me. They have some nice pieces back in Wilcher, Walker, and Trey McGowans, but I'm not sure they got much in recruiting. The portal might have been good for them. Former 4 star Juwan Gary might be a kid to watch...Good on the drive and the midrange, but his 3 point shooting is bad (20% last year at Alabama). Sam Griesel might be a good pickup too.

    McGowan isn't back, I thought both left

    .340 OBP is terrible? Slugging over .520 is terrible? 

    Kyle Schwarber is one of the few reasons we bother to turn an MLB game on at all. 

    Only 53 rbi with 25 homers isn't good. When almost half of your rbi is driving yourself in with a homer that is not good.  If he could actually hit he should have 70+ rbi.  I don't need my power hitters walking a lot because his job is to drive in runs.

    I haven't seen one Phillies game all year so I am not just tuning in to see him.

    .219 batting average, 101 strikeouts but 25 dongs. Poster child for what the league is right now and I'd take him back in a heartbeat. Schwarber is basically on autolock in my daily fanduel entries. 

    25 homers are good but everything else is terrible. Guys like this is what is killing the sport and making it hard to watch.

  7. Lodolo pitched well tonight for the Reds after being on the IL for 2 months.  Only problem was he could only go 4.2 innings because of his pitch count at 90.  He gave up no runs on 3 hits also had 8K's and 3BB. This game is your typical baseball in 2022.

    5 innings with 30 outs

    18K'S 3BB 4 hits 0 runs so not much action on the bases 

    With the bullpen in for the Reds the Mets will probably win now especially with how Scherzer is pitching

    Sorry I support my teams and coaches! I apologize for doing that on an IU FORUM!!!!! 

    Nuts man. Absolutely nuts. Label me condescending... I clearly do not care in the least bit. 

    You compared our football and basketball programs to each other and they're are so astronomically different its unreal. Look at the difference in posts in our football and basketball forum. That should tell you enough. 

    Because IU will always be a basketball school and Indiana is a basketball state.  Football is gaining ground in the state but basketball will always be #1 for most people

    I haven’t been around campus for a long time and seen all the improvements. To me the funds should be put towards improving the sports facilities and housing for athletes. They bring in the money they should benefit the most from it. Have to look at it like an investment…it will pay itself back if things are done right.

    I know they have really nice housing for at least the basketball players but don't know about the rest of the sports

    The Warriors are either reportedly interested or it’s just speculation.  I am not sure if it’s made up or real reporting.   Basically the idea is they ship Poole and Wiseman with Wiggie going to a 3rd team for Durant.  That would be an intriguing package.   

    If they send Wiggins to a 3rd team the Pacers could use a 6'8 wing player

    Thank you to the Braves manager for taking your starter after 7 shutout innings.  Reds scored 3 runs on 4 hits in the bottom of the 8th to take a 3-1 lead.

    No surprise the Reds bullpen gave up the lead in the top of the 9th with Strickland giving up 2 solo homers to tie the game.

    Braves took out Morton with a 1 hit shutout after 7.  Just SMH with this stupidity of what baseball has come to be.

  13. Charlie Morton of the Braves has a no hitter through 5 against the Reds. Reds got their first base runner in the 5th with a walk to Bottom but got picked off.  Yesterday the Refs had 1 hit and 1 run so now their bats are cold to go along with a terrible bullpen.
