As seen in todays comcast schedule………

"TBS 1:00    2018 Post Season Pre-Game"

I know, I know, it's the paly off games.  But aren't those games PART of the season?

A deer "season" ends on the last day.  Something is over when there is no more of it. Isn't the last game of the World Series really the last day for the baseball "season?"

And now I begin to end this post...………..

As a life-long die-hard CUBS WriglyVillian, I'm stuck in the days of Banks, Santo, Williams, and Jenkins back when there was only the National and American Leagues and *NO* play-offs and *NO* dress-wearing players who needed a real ('designated') man to come hold the baseball bat because the big mean guy on the mound was going to throw a hard ball in your general direction. 
It's all gotten very diluted and the over-paid.

I think the late, great Dick Enberg said something like that on NBC's broadcast of Game 7 of the 1982 World Series (which I have on DVD from A&E's St. Louis Cardinals: Greatest Games of Busch Stadium release). He used words like "we're tied at 1 in this final game of the 1982 baseball year," meaning that Game 7 of the '82 Fall Classic was the last day of the season.

I think Mr Tits is taking the whole thing too literally.

It's obvious that the term "post season" refers to the AFTER the REGULARLY SCHEDULED/PRE-PLAYOFF part of the season.

Engaging in semantics can be fun, but you shouldn't let it consume you.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Yes, as an American League side, against the St. Louis Cardinals (Cardinals were '82 champions).

Great, easy to understand words from an intelligent era when baseball was starting to fall out of grace as 'America's Sport'. Back when I could still puke out stats and history...these days? I can't even spell 'baseball' correctly all the time as it has become SO polluted. 
Polluted.
The Pilots, Royals, Expos, and Padres.
The DH, or 'baseball for girls'.
Baseball cards are no longer 5 cents a pack and only come from TOPPS - kids cannot afford to collect them.
Girls in baseball (some of them are REALLY good).
The playoffs - is this 'Roto Baseball', or basketball?
'Buy a championship' - there goes team loyalty and the paying public is proving to be imperfect idiots.
The absolutely stupid salaries...and the public keeps paying.
The "I'm scared, Momma! He might throw that baseball at me and hit me...Cry"-attitudes to go with those salaries, along with fines, etc...
'Pay TV & Internet Baseball'.
'Instant Replay' - say no more.
What a bunch of spoiled, over-paid bastards.
I recall when we used to make fun of "Le Grande Orange'-mo, but there isn't one player these days that anywhere near measures up to the unselfish and social-serving man he was.
I recall when Billy Martin & Mickey Mantle would crawl to their hotel rooms and somehow make it to the park the next day...anybody like that now gets a spanking, public admonishment, and suspended without pay.
I think only good Christians and those with 'pre-approved characters' are allowed to play, these days - and, like Harvard, we have ethnic/racial quotas to meet.
Yiup. Good ol'boys, bad boys, and homos can't play anymore and it has become far too diluted to enjoy very much. 'Team Loyalty' means nothing - YOU can't keep the players - they're here for a contract and the ownership doesn't care as long as the unintelligent public keeps spending...

And NBC's Proud N was another memory of a more special time then-- just the pertinent graphics (score, starting lineups, stats, and nothing extraneous)!

And while we're on the subject.......................Why do they call it "The World Series?" It has nothing to do with The World.  Rather the U.S. and a little but of Canada. There are other teams in other parts of the planet but they don't get to compete for this game. Should it be "Almost The World Series?" or "Some Of The World Series?"

That's a question I've asked before too.

Pretty presumptuous.

They should just shorten it to "The Series".

ConfusedThe both of you aren't Baseball fans - no 'Fan Food' for either of you.

It is the World Series because The Big Guy Above designated the sport an AMERICAN MEN'S SPORT and that the USofA would always be represented and WIN any WORLD SERIES. Think about it and look at soccer. Do you see the USofTrumpia winning the WORLD CUP? No - not our sport. So, let the USofA and the WORLD SERIES alone. 
And by the way, sorry about the BrewCrew, aka...the view from above had us all rootin' for Milwaukee....

Because it was a series of games sponsored by The World newspaper way back when.  Yes, somewhat pretentious of them to name it after themselves...  Wink

Similar history shows us that in the beginning a guy that took care of the batters area was named John Homes. (no retaliation)  They started calling it "John homes place." And then they settled on just "Home Plate."

Disapprove!
If you're going to play around, at least get it right.
It was John Holmes, who came in second to Yours Truly back around 1987 in the 'Best Tasting, Longest Lasting Dog' contest as determined by thousands of women. As sweet as I have always been, the Lassies all fell by the wayside when the Missus got tired of who believed they were competition...so here I am today, still pushing them away (while she's pushing up daisies).
Johnny got a rotten one in the contest,..prolly Freddy Mercury in drag or somethin' - yeaaaa...he became 'rotten Johnny', not to be confused with Johnny Rotten. Yup, got all sick and then he all upped and croaked, doncha know.  Wink

Now what were you saying about baseball and 'Home Plate', which was named after a dinner plate?
