There will be four games that day, three on TBS and one on MLB Network.  Don't know anything more at this point. M(ajor) L(oser) B(ud) may wait until after the wildcard games on Friday to announce anything since those winners will host the two Game Ones on Sunday.

Am wondering since that would be game two and they then travel if they wouldn't want to be the early game. Specially since coming from the West Coast.

So it looks like Saturday's games are slated to be Oakland @ Detroit at 6 ET and Cincinnati @ San Francisco at 9:30. Any idea how that might impact our starting time on Sunday?

DC vs. ATL would be hilarious (nats and skins vs. braves and falcons).  i assume it'll be a 5 pm first pitch, just imo.

i hope wednesday's game is at 735-8.

That would be the worst possible time slot for me.  Any of the other 3 would be better...

I see no reason why the Nats game won't be at 8 pm on Wednesday. By Thursday, however, there could potentially be game 5 in both leagues so my guess is that game 4 will be in the afternoon.

Zuckerman has a good point.
Quote from: @MarkZuckerman
We don't know gametimes yet, but an educated guess: Because #Nats will be playing on same days as #Yankees, be ready for afternoon starts.

Didn't say it was better, but it is a previous commitment that I can't get out of.

Not an option.  That's alright.  Not gonna worry about it until they actually announce game a formal game time.

I have a big conflict on October 10 but thankfully it's downtown and it's in the morning. Should be over by noon.

Whew. That was close.

Please, please, please be the late slot. :pray:

I don't get back until late Sunday night from my honeymoon. If it is later and by some miracle my tickets were delivered I won't have wasted a pair.

go to your nats account and transfer the tickets to yourself, then print them out.

So when are they going to set the times?!?!?!  I really need to give work a heads up if I'm going to take off early for the game.

I'm guessing times won't be set until WC games are over late Friday night.

If we play Sunday  ..  what is the NLDS playout look like?   Sunday-Monday then Tu, Wed, Thur?   I have tickets to the 2nd home game but have a roadtrip planned for late next week.

At least Texas and St Louis are not on the West Coast.  You have to figure the SF and the Oakland home games get the late slot, and conveniently the Giants host the first 2 and Oakland hosts the last up to 3.  You can figure that those will all be the late slots. 

I buy that the NYY will get the prime time slot for every game they are in.  Zuckerman is probably right - Afternoon games until the NYY are eliminated.   I don't know if Columbus day makes afternoon baseball more attractive in NY, where it is a holiday (same I guess is true for the federal gov't center, I suppose).

Nats play at home Wed., Thur., Fri., so your tickets are for Thursday.

We play away Sunday and Monday.  Wouldn't Tuesday be a travel day and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday be the days we play here in DC?

Agreed on needing to give work a heads up if I've got to take off early next week if we're an afternoon game, or if I have to take a couple of hours off work the next morning if we're a late game.  I've let my boss know that it's upcoming, but it's hard to plan meetings and things when you don't know if you'll be at work or not. 

Fortunately my boss is a rabid football fan and understands how important it is to be there when your team is in the playoffs.  (She's a Steelers fan, but we'll overlook that.)  I can't imagine explaining this schedule craziness to a non-sports-loving boss.  Yikes.
