Game 6 of the World Series is tonight and to commemorate the occasion, we're doing a running diary for the evening. What that will entail is basically a smorgasbord of AA's best features - quotes from Joe Buck and Tim McCarver (ala the Pammies), your tweets on the broadcast (ala Real Tweets from Real People), and some interspersed commentary in between. Just refresh the page throughout the game for a continual dialogue and leave a comment below or tweet us your thoughts/quotes. Enjoy the game... and try to enjoy the announcing!
"the count is 1-1. That's a little low and now it's 3-1" - Joe Buck (via spadilly)
"And now Michael Young takes a ball.... in for a strike." - Joe Buck (via MagnaCarterLive)
"The Cardinals are hoping to have the intention to get Pujols up there without intentionally walking." - Tim McCarver (via AA)
Lance Berkman homers to make it 2-1 Cards in the bottom of the first. Joe Buck actually seemed excited for the occasion (for his relative standards)... but I'm sure a large portion of the audience may interpret it as Cardinals homerism...
"The best way to eliminate gray is to keep hitting them like Berkman just hit them … or hit it." - Tim McCarver (via TravHaney)
Tim refers to Bill Mazeroski's 9th inning Game 7 home run in 1960 as "the shot heard round Pittsburgh." What a majestic way to describe one of the greatest moments in baseball history.
That's a little harsh isn't it? Ear ripping territory is usually only reserved for Craig James.
There's something so beautiful about Tim McCarver saying "JAI-MAY" Garcia. In other news, Kinsler doubles into left center to tie the game at 2-2 in the second. Already Boggs is warming up in the bullpen for the Cards. Get Ken Rosenthal on the other end of that bullpen phone!!
"you've heard that expression 2nd time thru the lineup; this is the 2nd time the Rangers have faced Jaime Garcia." - Tim McCarver (via JimMcKaysaidso)
At least Joe threw in a little excitement in throwing to commercial...
Tim actually makes a good point about Carpenter pitching Game 7 of the World Series reflecting on Ken Rosenthal's short report. See, we're not negative all the time!
"Chris Carpenter is the unofficial official starting pitcher for tomorrow night."- Tim McCarver (via sjwest86)
On second thought...
Sorry it was a short inning... had to get in a Craig James quote somewhere tonight!
