    It's your extravaganza, so you should watch what you want to watch. Sounds like that's exactly what you will be doing. I'll still be following.

    I'm already second guessing myself, but I'm going to do it this way for a while and see. This weekend of games with only one NL divisional series, and that one involving the Marlins, irritated me, and I realized that I control the remote and can put it on whatever game I choose. If I'm wrong and the AL races turn out to be more fun, I'll be watching those games. I just need 48 hours in a day.

    111. Dbacks 4, Braves 1

    1. The Braves started Soroka, not to be confused with another Braves pitcher named Sobotka, who also pitched in the game. Soroka went five innings and had some traffic while only allowing one run. Sobotka, on the other hand, went one inning and gave up a two run homer to Christian Walker and another run after that.
    2. Freddie Freeman homered to ruin the shutout.
    3. Luke Weaver, part of the Dback compensation for Goldschmidt, looked good in his 5 shutout innings. Hirano got the save, facing four batters.
    4. Inciarte made a couple of nice plays in center. If he could hit just a bit better...

    Giants-Nats next.

    For the record, I will confuse both of them with Mike Sirotka, the only pitcher to allow a home run to Garth Brooks.

    As a mostly AL fan, I'll miss your updates, but I still look forward to reading your NL game summaries. I admire your stamina at this. I probably would have given up after a week.
    Things can always be worse.

    112. Giants 2, Nats 4

    1. Patrick Corbin shut out the Giants for 7 innings on one hit, gave up another hit and a run while tiring in the 8th, and handed a 4-1 lead to the bullpen.
    2. Zimmerman's 997th career RBI was on a double driving in Soto for the first Nats run.
    3. Rendon has a 16 game hitting streak. He and Soto doubled back to back in the 3rd for another run.
    4. Doolittle allowed three singles, a run, and the tying run to first base before recording his save.
    5. Longoria scored the first Giants run after being hit by a pitch, and his single drove in the second run in the 9th.

    Dodgers-Brewers and Phillies-Rockies will start tonight. After I finish those, Reds-Padres will finish the Thursday games.

    Actually, I've figured out the right way to do this. On Opening Day, I'd start out with the National League until the season is over. On the day after the season is over, I would start the schedule over day by day playing American league games. I'd ignore interleague. Playing at the same rate I have been, I would get to about 1800 total games and wouldn't have to worry about the timing of games or blackouts pushing games to the next day. That would give me the full story of a baseball season, kind of like replaying a full modern season pitch by pitch on a tabletop. Problem is, this would take all 12 months and it would be time to start over again. At some point I might even want to do something else with my time.
