Sunday I was planning on going to the San Clemente Seafest but after seeing that there was going to be an MLB Postseason quadruple header on TV, I decided to stay home. I am glad I did stay home to watch most of the four game series. Yeah, I vegetated but in between I did get some cooking done.. I’ll take the train ride to San Clemente another weekend.
Today there is another quadruple header! I am at work but I will work with my headphones on while I listen to some of the local announcers on MLB At Bat. I tend to switch between the home and away team announcers. I have found them a little too homers. That is something that you don’t find with Vin Scully, Jaime Jarrin and Pepe Yniguez.
When I find myself on the road and my MLB At Bat fails me at the stadium, I turn to my radio and listen to the local announcers. In addition to enjoying the game, I like to listen to the local commercials to see who their local sponsors are. I found the milk commercials at Minnesota …wholesome :-). By the way, avocados from Mexico commercials in the MLB Postseason? Cool! It did make me want some avocado . Talking about avocados, last weekend was the Avocado festival in Carpinteria, CA.
this reminds me of the avocado trees back home in Honduras. It also reminded me of Duke Snider who had an avocado farm in Fallbrook, CA.
The quadruple header for today:
St Louis at WAS 10 AM PT (1 PM ET) on MLBNetwork. Carpenter against Edwin Jackson.
SF at CIN 1 PM PT (4 PM ET) on TBS Barry Zito against Mike Leake

p.s. Jaime Jarrin twitted this “commendable drive of Clayton Kershaw to intensify the collection of funds to help kids in Zambia. He will have a golf tournament on November 12th in Los Angeles.
I like the quotes once you publish your post here at the MLB Blogs. This is from today:
