Hello from Philadelphia, where I’m covering the first two games of the National League Division Series between the Phillies and the Rockies. We’ll be on a bit of a whirlwind tour of the playoffs in the first round—I’ll be leaving from here for my hometown of Minneapolis, where everybody’s favorite comeback kids, the Minnesota Twins, continue their ALDS series with the New York Yankees this weekend. How ‘bout that game last night? Even if you didn’t have a rooting interest in it, it was postseason baseball at its riveting best.
Anyway, Mark and I will be posting updates from the playoffs here, in addition to any Nats news that crops up along the way. So if you’re interested in what we have to say about the postseason, you’re in the right place.
Here are the lineups for the Rockies-Phillies game, which is scheduled to start at 2:37:
