I’m sometimes watching the first game of the 2012 Baseball World Series…sometimes not watching..and sometimes using the DVR to speed up the action. Most of the time for me, watching in real time is boring. I admire the skills of the pitchers, hitters and fielders, but velcro inspired adjusting of the batting gloves, conferences on the mound, and pitchers who work slowly combine to cause me to speed forward with TIVO. More than halfway through tonight’s game, the Giants are leading the Cardinals 6-0. They have chased the Cardinals’ best pitcher, Justin Verlander. San Francisco left-hander Barry Zito is pitching a shutout. Their third-baseman Pablo Sandoval has hit 3 home runs in this first game of the World Series! Now in the sixth inning, Zito allows a run before leaving in favor of Tim Lincecum. 6-1 in the middle of the sixth. Goodnight!
