Tape the debate; watch the baseball games (How many Americans will do just that?)
one man's opinion...

Posted on 10/03/2012 1:25:00 PM PDT by ken5050

The battle for the AL East division ends tonight (perhaps) Orioles are tied with the Evil Empire, aka the Yankees). Orioles have a tough game against the Rays, while the Yankees get the pathetic Red Sox ( and they'e MY team, gawd help me..)Both games start at 7Pm..so tney should be over about the same time as the debate ends. They you can turn on FOX and hear Juan Williams tell you that Obama won the debate..

Great end to a terrific baseball season, which may not be over:

Yanks win, Orioles lose, Yanks win the division, Orioles are the wild card.

Orioles win, Yanks lose, just reverse it.

Both win, or both lose, and there is a one game playoff on Thursday, then the winner of that game goes right into a one game wild card playoff on Friday..

Lot better than watching Mitt and Barry...

Seriously, I wonder how many tens of millions will choose baseball, since the debates are on just about every station.

MLB network will carry the games..split screen..and they're in most cable systems..

I’m doing neither. No reason to suffer through a debate when I already know how I’m voting, and this baseball season has no narrative for me. I’ll be burning down some DVR tonight, got lots of stuff on there.

Your analysis is not correct. The Yankees have a one game lead. Yanks win, they’re in, regardless of O’s result. If O’s lose, Yanks are in even if Yanks lose. Both win or both lose, Yanks are in. Only way to get to a Yanks/Orioles playoff is O’s win, Yanks lose.

I think it the Yanks win they win the division, regardless of what the Orioles do, no playoff. Why is there a playoff if they both win, since the Yankees are ahead by a game? I am just a girl, though, so I might have it wrong.

Since my Nationals won this afternoon and have wrapped up home field advantage with the best record in basebali (!), I'll watch the O's off and on but I'll be mostly tuned into the debates.

GO NATS!

Make the debate fun. Get your score cards out and count the “I inherited”, tax breaks for the rich”, “uh”, “go back to failed”, “fair share”, “basic right”, “47%”, “I”, “me”, “my”, “working class”, bipartisan, etc.

are tied with the Evil Empire, aka the Yankees

Ken, aren't you from NY? Shame on you! Besides that, they aren't tied.

No, watching BO is not good for my health or my TV. I don't need to hear how barry won and won the next 2 debates. That's what so great about FR!! 'TV' for conservatives! And liberal trolls are zotted!

My Cardinals are in. I won't see any games / debates until later as I'll be between my 4 kids 4 baseball/softball practices tonight. But I'll be listening to Vin & the Dodgers & hoping Hamilton hits a couple of homers to keep Cabrerra from winning the Triple Crown. Not that I'm a big Yaz fan, I just like to preserve the old records.

The only way to watch a debate is to hear Rush’ opening the next day and NOT watch it. Obama is not allowed on my TV screen. My wife and kids know that. When an Obama commercial
comes on the screen, it takes less than 1/2 second and it’s been changed.

Working late nights this time of year. I have about an hour and a half or so after I get home until time to go to bed. I sure ain’t spending an hour of that watching the debate. I’ll DVR it and then delete in on Friday without watching it after I’ve read all the coverage and figure I don’t need to watch it.

Not sure what standings you’re looking at but the Yankees are up by one game as of today (94/67 vs. 93/68). If they lose tonight and Baltimore wins then it’s my understanding the tie breakers favor the Orioles (better record against the East). Either way they’re both already in the playoffs.

Depending on what Hamilton does, Cabrera may not play tonight. He hasn’t taken a break since August. As of now he’s in the lineup but it all depends on Hamilton now.

Yes, by all means, watch baseball citizens. After all, grown men playing a kid’s game is much more important than the future of America. After baseball, tune in to a new Comedy Central show, “Bread and Circuses”

Today is the last day of the regular season. Then only playoffs and the World Series, and then a five month drought before the next season starts. You can see politicans on TV any day of the year.

Two reasons to watch the debates: if you are still undecided about whether or not to vote for Obama, or to be able to compare your impressions of the debate with the mainstream media spin.

I can't stand the idea of watching Obama for 45 minutes...I watch the clips later.

With some luck (and good relief pitching for the A's), he'll only have one more at bat, hopefully a k.

I hope Cabrera takes a break tonight, rests the ankle a bit.

I just read the history of the triple crown over the weekend, it was always tough to win, but with all the new pitching styles, specialized hitters, etc. it hasn't been won since 1967, and before that only 13 players have won it. That some people (sports writers and some fans) are diminishing this as a milestone is incomprehensible.
