I predicted this on Saturday:
So I have to think it’ll be STL-WC at 10 AM (MLB Net), BOS-WC at 1 PM, ATL-LAD at 4 PM (both TBS), and OAK-DET at 6:30 on TNT (overflow).

Well, at least I nailed the sequence. The first two game times will be as follows:
- Game 1: Detroit at Oakland, 6:30 PM Friday on TBS
- Game 2: Detroit at Oakland, 6:00 PM Saturday on TBS
Future game times to be released later.
The late Game 2 start also has an effect on the Chargers-Raiders game. Originally scheduled for 1 PM, the game will be moved to 8:30 PM in order to accommodate the football changeover. That will make for a most unusual NFL quadruple-header, with the normal 10 AM and 1 PM slots, the Sunday Night slot featuring the Texans at the 49ers, and then across the bay for Chargers-Raiders on NFL Network. With playoff baseball on everyday this week leading into an epic football Sunday, this has to be one of the best sports weeks in recent memory. See you at the yard.
