The Faster The Better
From a TV baseball director's standpoint, the faster the pace of the game the better. When the pace of the game is brisk, the director is able to get into a very comfortable rhythm. Today's game between the Cardinals and the Nationals was just one of those games. This 2:31 affair was won by the Redbirds by the score of 4 - 1. Starting pitching will dictate the quality of the speed of the game. I was very excited about this contest today because the starting pitchers were Michael Wacha and Max Scherzer. They fulfilled their promise as two of the finest pitchers in the game. Coupled with the truly talented DC TV crew and this was one of my most enjoyable days of my career.
