Full NLDS Details, Including Start Times

Here’s everything you need to know about the series:

-No word on final postseason roster

-Charlie Manuel said Carlos Ruiz and J.C. Romero are “good to go”

-When asked how “hungry” Roy Halladay was for a playoff start, Charlie said he was “starving”- well, glad that’s settled

-Game 3 will be at either 7:07 or 8:07 on Sunday night (depending on if AL series is over), up directly against the Eagles game against the 49ers

-Game 4 is at 5:07 or 7:37 (depending on other series)

-Game 5 is at 6:07 or 8:07 (you get the drill)

Try that tactic with your boss.  “I’ll be in at 7:07 or 8:07 tomorrow depending on if I hit the snooze button.”

  1. …They really couldn’t just say that Lauren Hart sings for the Flyers? I love the MLB and their exclusiveness so so so so so much.

  2. oh well…opposite the Eagles. Poor scheduling by NFL to have Eagles-49ers on at 8pm when Giants and Phils are both in playoffs.

  3. thanks for posting the pregame stuff 🙂 i have tix to the game and didnt have ne idea of when those things started

  4. D, you mean the AL Division Series? hmmm maybe douchebags shouldn’t comment on things they don’t understand.

  5. All your either-or’s don’t make sense.
    Go here for a clearer picture of the schedule:
    All Yankees games coinciding on the same days as Phillies games are scheduled to start LATER than the Phillies scheduled starts. It’s the Rays series that are earlier on the day of Phillies Game 1 and Game 3 (Rays Game 1 and Game 4, respectively). But those Rays starts are at 1:30 and 1pm, so unless they go to extra-extra innings, it shouldn’t be a problem. And the Phillies Game 3 will be on TNT, not TBS, so the both the Rays and the Yanks series shouldn’t interfere with this.
    What I want to know is about Game 1. If the Phillies are still playing, will they delay the Yankees game or will they cut coverage of the Phillies game—including switching it over to TNT. This is important since I’m DVRing the game. Yes, I’m coming home late because of earlier commitements and FFwding through the commercials, so if I miss the end because the channel is changed, I’m FUCKED! If they do this I’m going to take that huge Pete Rose hat ( https://www.crossingbroad.com/2010/07/pete-rose-wears-the-largest-hat-you-have-ever-seen.html ), stick that shrimp Bud Selig in it, wrap-it-up and throw it in a river like a sack full of kittens!

  6. @Beerfarts….I know NFL Schedule is out way in advance. But they knew the Phils were the favorites in the NL and would be in the playoffs this weekend and Giants had a good shot as well.
    Arizona-New Orleans would have been a better choice for the Sunday night game this week.

  7. @Iron Balls – I’m not sure why TBS doesn’t just put games on opposite each other if need be. As playoffs keep expanding, you can’t expect to be able to schedule the games so inconviently for most people, just so those 100 diehard baseball fans who are home from 1pm-midnight on a weekday get to see every pitch of every game.
    Have 2 games at 3pm and 2 games at 8pm…or stagger the times so games start at 3, 4, 7, and 8pm if you want to be able to show parts of every game. Then if a region’s home team is playing they get that game no matter what, and everyone else gets the national game. And if you have no home team going, they can toggle back and forth to air the most competitive game.
