Vin Scully, from last night's telecast:
Dodgers have a long day's journey into night, into day.
The strike-one pitch, swung on and missed, oh and two.
Yes, it's very glamorous, and yes, it pays you a lot of money to be a ballplayer, but you have to play very well, all the time.
The strike-two pitch, swung on and missed. That'll do it for Billingsley.
And that makes it very tough to play well all the time. Just to give you an idea of tonight's game. If it's anything like last night, it'll end about ten-thirty. With a good break, the Dodgers will be off the ground in two hours. That would make it twelve-thirty.
Twelve-thirty is two-thirty in the morning in Chicago. And it's about, let's say, a four-hour flight. If it takes that long, you land at six-thirty.
Well, Chicago is a bustling city. You'll be fighting early-morning traffic coming on that long ride from the airport at O'Hare, all the way to downtown.
So about time you get to the hotel? Well, after seven o'clock for sure. If you wait for your bag, it's going to be eight o'clock.
You go up to the room, you darken the room, you try to get some sleep, and then you battle ninety-mile-an-hour fastballs that night.
Well, Jamey and the Dodgers will have to do that tonight.
