LET'S GO TRIBE'S 2014 NLCS PREVIEW

I think most baseball fans prefer offense, which I completely understand. My ideal game is two great pitchers each throwing a great game though, and so a matchup like tonight's grabs my attention. Of course, these matchup rarely live up to their potential, because most things in life rarely live up to their potential. Plus, Wainwright has seemed a bit shaky of late, possibly nursing an injury. It probably won't be a great pitchers' duel... but it could be. It also could be the only baseball game in the next five days. You should watch.
