Admittedly MLB could have scheduled game two of the NLCS in a better time slot, but it turns out to be more of a blessing.

Having first pitch scheduled at 1:30 prevented most of us from having to watch that massacre in Philly. But there I was at work listening to the radio feed and could only imagine what the carnage looked like.

That second inning where Chad Billingsley literally fell apart on the mound. I think his right arm is still there next to the mound. He gave up four runs in that second inning and then was charged for another four runs in the third. Granted Chan Ho Park didn’t help things out when he came in relief by allowing the two runs he inherited to score. But really now?

And how does Brett Myers go three-for-three with three RBIs? This is the opposing pitcher who had gotten only four hits during the entire regular season. Nice time for Dodger pitching to go down the drain.
