Introducing Postseason Journal - and Sheinin

On the Acela headed to Philly (hasn't this happened before?), and wanted to give you an update on plans for coming weeks. The Journal staff and I were having our end-of-season meeting (at which each staff member gets an evaluation, and gets the chance to evaluate me as well (ouch)), and we thought the logical thing to do was not only to keep the Journal going through the postseason, but to expand its reach.

Thus, Journal readers, meet Dave Sheinin. Sheinin, this is the readership of Nationals Journal. Please welcome him.

Sheinin, our immensely talented national baseball scribe, will be all over these playoffs. You may have noticed his preview of the postseason splashed across the front of the $.35 edition. You may have noticed his capsules on each series inside. You may have noticed that he sometimes gets mistaken for Jon Kruk.

Now, you'll be able to read him here, too. His schedule is just as crazy as mine. He'll be in Boston today for Game 1 of Sox-Angels. He'll go to Cleveland tomorrow for Game 1 of Yanks-Tribe. He'll go back to Boston, then to New York, and so on and so forth. He'll do the ALCS, I'll do the NLCS.

Both of us will chat during the postseason as well. I have a chat at 1 p.m. today. It's billed as the final Nationals chat of the season (we'll have some in the offseason as well), but we can talk playoffs there as well.

So between us, Sheinin and I should be able to provide some decent dispatches in this space. And I'll make a deal with you - one I haven't told Sheinin about, but one I believe he'll agree with. We'll also let you know where we eat dinner in each city (on the rare nights where we have an afternoon game or an off day) and offer a bit of a review on the place. Given that we could each be in four different cities in the next week, that could provide some insight. (Starting in Philly tonight, by the way, given the Phils-Rockies 3 p.m. start.)

For now, check out all the stuff in the $.35 edition. And here's a story on Dmitri Young's award from yesterday. And in case you missed it, here's a Nationals notebook from two days ago with a bunch of stuff on instructional league and the Arizona Fall League, etc.

Enjoy the postseason. And let me know what you think of TBS. I thought they were a little shaky in the Padres-Rockies game the other night.

Verizon FiOS SUCKS...no TBS in HD on Fios.

Posted by: no HD | October 3, 2007 10:23 AM | Report abuse

I have an idea that might or might not work for the peanut gallery:

Each of you post for the game/series you're covering each day, so the peanuts out here who are following one series in particular can post regularly in that post.

Or, if you're not going to use that method, try to clarify where we should go to post on specific games in progress (with the staggered TV schedule, I guess it's ok to just keep posting to the most recent blog post, but...)

Re: TBS coverage. After 20 mins of searching for the Rox/Padres (my brother actually gave up looking for the game) I found TBS. (I've never watched TBS since I got the dish in March. Hmm.) I thought the team was flat, but ok. Mostly I was thrilled not to deal with the over-the-top FOX broadcasts with their 5 fan-shots in between EVERY pitch. I'm sure market research told them casual viewers prefer watching bored/ugly/hot/sleeping/dancing people in the seats rather than pitchers/batters/catchers scratch themselves between pitches, but I don't.

Well, except for the hot ones, I guess. ;-)

TBS sucks in general. Does anyone really want to watch 4 hours of Friends' reruns?

Other than the sense that the announcers first met an hour before game-time and Orsillo leaving his personality back in New England, it was a good broadcast. Miles better than FOX.

- No robots? Check.

- No talking baseball? Check.

- No random quick cuts to spectators praying or Jeter or the Jeter equivalent on the dugout rail? Check.

- Some sense in the camera work of the entire playing field rather than just a tight "pitcher's face, batter's face, here comes the pitch" dynamic? Check.

- Fewer annoying whooshes and sound effects? Check.

- No Joe Buck, pontificating when he's not seeming disinterested and better than the game itself? Check.

- No Tim McCarver, babbling about stupid crap? Check.

In other words, TBS gave its viewers baseball, rather than a production designed to make the viewers forget they were watching baseball. That's an improvement in my book.

double check. but on the topic of the game the other night, it would have helped if the "Guide" actually said that baseball was on. I had no idea that the game was on TBS, and neither did our interactive tv guide. Nor did ESPN mention it was on TBS. So I spent the night listening to it on the radio cussing out every media outlet on the planet. Then went to sleep at the end of the 12th. So it wasn't a good night for me.

At least I won't have to see flaming ball radar guns that add 5mph to each pitch. I hate fox in all aspects. McCarver is an idiot.

Since I didn't get to see the game Monday, can someone fill me in on who is going the PBP for the games? Is it the old Braves booth or what?

Welcome Sheinin, I'm still wary of you because I think you might be a Nats hater due to your run-ins with Nats FO. But I still have an open mind, welcome to NJ!

Anything is better than Fox, so I guess by default TBS has been fine so far.

bba says:

2. Chris Marrero, of, Potomac
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-3 Wt.: 210 Age: 19 Drafted: Nationals '06 (1)
After tearing up the South Atlantic League, Marrero made his CL debut before he turned 19. He hit .302/.375/.500 in July before running out of gas in August and having difficult making adjustments. As he wore down, he dropped his right shoulder and pulled off pitches, but several scouts give him a pass because he was so young for high Class A.

"The kid can hit," another scout from an AL club said. "He has a good approach with power to all fields and should continue to hit for average. The other tools are just OK, but it's the bat that's going to play."

Marrero doesn't run particularly well and will be limited to an outfield corner. He has average arm strength, which is better than the typical left fielder, and he may be able to handle right field.

Welcome, Dave. I like SNF's idea of parallel game threads (could be less confusing that way). Restaurant reviews are good, too.

Posted by: natsfan1a | October 3, 2007 11:42 AM | Report abuse

I like the Red Sox play by play guy -- any chance he could replace Bob Carpenter on MASN? This is the kind of play by play announcer the Nats need -- he's not a blind dumb homer, but he clearly likes the team he is covering and discusses their flaws with from the point of view of a fan of the team that pays his paycheck. I'd like to hear Rem Dog with him on the TBS games.

Joe Simpson is the melba toast of baseball announcers. Aside from the play by play guy, it still feels like a local Braves telecast doing a national game though. Sort of like when the NHL moved to Versus.

I agree with the FOX comments above. Tim McCarver was overexposed 20 years ago. Joe Buck thinks he's clever and is not. Any network that thinks Eric Byrnes is 'on air talent' needs to conduct some self-examination.

Marrero is a first baseman. Put him there. Nick Johnson '06 will never return. He will be severely limited in the field and for power-hitting, but the awesome thing about him was his batter's eye, which will not go away.

This of course, makes him much more valuable in the American League as a DH, if you see where I'm going with this...

What better news could we have than (i) NJ will continue through the postseason (and, hopefully, the offseason) and (ii) we now will receive contributions from a second baseball writer? This is great. Welcome, Dave.

506, I'm on board with the Marrero-to-first switch (he's playing there in the instructional league this fall).

And, I believe that C Snark nearly closed the loop on the Five Tools of Snark towards the end of the prior post with the following:

"OK, 3 offensive (!) and 2 fielding (note NOT "defensive" because if you're getting defensive in a snark fight, you've lost)

Snark Average (SA) -- overall consistent quality. Extra points for developing a persona that enhances the snarks, a la Groucho. Extra points for intricacy, and especially the rare Nested Snark.

Snark for/to Power (SP) -- fearlessness in snarking at powerful people who have it coming. Could be just because they are better snarkers, not just armed and drunk. Context- and target-dependent. Note formula is (quality of snark) times (dangerousness of snarkee).

Speed Snarking (SS) -- the devastating ad-lib snark.

Counter-Snark (CS) -- the return to an incoming snark, serve-and-volley style.

Snarkskin (Sk) -- a thick skin and good balance, not easily provoked.

How's that?"

That's very good. I think I might favor Natsfan1a's "Comebacker Snark" to "counter-snark" but both are good for different reasons.

I'm looking forward to evaluating future snarks based on this new scale.

An overhead camera at the plate! The photos of Holliday's slide were from the pre-penicillin era! I cannot find an overhead shot anywhere, and thus Rockies' fans - the catcher stepped on his hand, you could see his foot move! - and Juan-John's "path of the dirt" arguments cannot be decided. We will never know the truth. This is unforgiveable.

Great to have Dave Shenin on board! He spoke at a SABR meeting way back when he was the Baltimore beat writer and he was extremely patient and kind with us baseball nerds!!!

The post-season is always fun, but the games are on way, way too late for anyone on the east coast to enjoy -- unless your favorite team is playing.

Also, I really, really, really hate to bring this up - but why bury the Dmitri Young Comeback Player of the Year Story in one column of page 5? Was it because it was announced so early in the day it was pretty much old news by the time people put their hands on the paper?

I'm not complaining, just asking. I don't want to bring up another round of griping about Nats coverage...it just seemed the story got less play than I expected. I didn't expect page 1 with the LDS's on deck, just a little better placement than it got.

Didn't the meat hook deserve a little more love?

"We will never know the truth. This is unforgiveable."

No it's not, it's baseball. San Diego had 162 other games to lock up the wild card and couldn't get it done, I can't say I feel bad for them. Everyone's been screwed by a bad call far more than once or twice, it evens out. How many bad calls led to San Diego getting into a one game play-in in the first place?

Welcome Dave. I'm very glad to hear that the postseason will be covered in such depth in this forum. All Love intended honestly, but I just don't know how much longer the finer points of snarking could have kept this forum going.

cevans opened the floor for post season predictions so here are mine:

ALDS

Yanks over Indians in 4 - Season series NYY 6-0

NYY Vs. CLE this season 2.67 ERA. CLE ERA 8.19.

CLE Vs NYY - Carmona 0-1, 14 hits, 6ER, 4.15 ERA over 2 starts. Borowski - 2/3 IP, 6ER, 2HR, 81.00 ERA

RedSox over Angels in 4 - Season series 6-4 Boston.

BOS Vs LAA - Beckett 2-1 1.38 ERA, Schilling 3-2 4.05 ERA, Papelbon 4IP, 2SV, 6K, 1 hit, 0.00 ERA.

LAA Vs BOS - Lackey 0-2 20 hits, 9ER, 8.38 ERA in 2 starts. Weaber 0-1 14 hits, 8ER, 6.97 ERA

NLDS

Rockies over Phillies in 5 - Season series COL 4-3

COL Vs PHI - Jeff Francis, 2 starts 0-1, 8.1 IP, 20 Hits, 14 ER, 15.12 ERA. Morales 1-0, 5.0 IP, 3 hits, BB, 4K, 0.00 ERA. Have not yet named a 3rd starter.

PHI vs COL - Hamels, DNP - Kendrick, 2 starts, 0-1, 9IP, 17 hits, 7ER, 7.00 ERA - Moyer, 0-1, 8 hits, 5ER, 7.94 ERA - Lohse 1 start (ND), 6IP, 7 hits, 3ER, 4.50 ERA

Cubs over DBacks in 5 - Season series ARI 4-2

No outstanding stats on either side. ERA was almost identical agains (2.94 CHC, 3.06 ARI) despite the fact that ARI never faced Zambrano, facing Sean Marshall 2 times instead. This one is tough but I'll go with the Cubs with Zambrano as the x-factor.

ALCS

RedSox over NYY in 6 - Season series NYY 10-8

ERAs against were equally bad (5.35 BOS, 5.38 NYY). Nothing really scientific in this pick. I just don't believe in the NYY pitching staff over a long series.

NLCS

Cubs over PHI in 7 - Season series PHI 4-3.

Lots of even numbers. ERA 5.75 CHC, 4.40 PHI. Again though, never faced Zambrano. I like the manager better in this match-up with Zambrano again the x-factor.

World Series

Boston over Chi Cubs in 6.

They didn't play each other this year. I think Boston is too much for the Cubs offensively and that they have much more depth in pitching. Plus... I just can't buy into the killing off of all 3 curses over a 4 year span.

Your 2007 World Champions - The Boston Red Sox.

ALDS:
Red Sox over Angels
Indians over Yankees

NLDS:
Cubs over Diamondbacks
Phillies over Rockies

ALCS:
Indians over Red Sox

NLCS:
Phillies over Cubs

WS:
Indians over Phillies.

Sorry to disappoint you but I clearly did not follow your lead in my prediction set. In fact the only "expert" on your home site to pick things the same way I did was John Shea (also the only one there to pick a NYY/BOS ALCS).
