We have a winner: Colorado Rockies over the Arizona Diamondbacks for a berth in the World Series. The result is posted at Bradenton.com.
Did you watch Game 4 of the NLCS to its conclusion? It ended after 1:30 a.m. our time, which was a far sight better than Friday night's Game 2. That one started at 10:12 p.m. and ended at 2:46 a.m.
And to the point made earlier about nobody watching baseball that late at night: Game 2 set a television low with a 2.2 national rating -- that's less than half of the previous lowest-ever rating for a league championship series game played in prime time.
The Rockies, who have won 21 of their last 22 games, appear to be an amazing story. Unfortunately, a lot of fans haven't been paying attention. Of course TV now has eight days off to hype them -- the World Series isn't scheduled to begin until Oct. 24.
Maybe we'll all be caught up by the time the Fall Classic finally begins in either Boston or Cleveland.
