Tonight's 2014 Nl Wild Card game between the San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates on Espn has a tough act to follow after last night's thrilling extra innings game in Kansas City. A pair of unlikely top line starters will be on the mound in the second straight winner-take all that will set the final playoffs teams ahead of the Divisional series. This game will be available to live stream online for free to Espn subscribers in what should be a big turnout.
The hometown Pirates will be sending Padres reject Edinson Volquez to the mound. Volquez was released by San Diego after watching his Era balloon over six last year and came to Pittsburgh looking for a fresh start. The 31-year old right found that and then some, starting a team-high 32 games for Pittsburgh and compiling a 13-7 record and 3.04 Era. A win tonight will propel his Pirates to the »
The 2014 Mlb Playoffs begin with a fantastic pitching match up tonight as Jon Lester and the Oakland Athletics take on James Shields and the Kansas Royals in the winner-take-all Al Wild Card game on TBS. Both starting pitchers have playoffs experience, though the Royals organization hasn't tasted the postseason in the past 26 years so no one knows what to expect. Only one team will advance to the next round after tonight as we watch Mlb Playoffs 2014 online live streaming from any one of numerous places or on live TV.
Both of tonight's starting pitchers were the core piece of blockbuster trades by their current organizations for the primary reason of starting in the playoffs. Jon Lester (16-11) came to the Athletics from the Red Sox at the trade deadline this past July, while Shields (14-8) came to the Royals from Tampa Bay two years ago.
The Lester deal sent slugger »
Jon Lester and wife Farrah Lester (pictured above in their Red Sox shirts) have settled in Oakland, California after a stunning mid-season trade took them from their home in Boston, Mass. all the way to the East Bay. Jon and wife Farrah were moving west, the longtime Boston Red Sox pitcher was traded on July 31, 2014 and the Lesters have now settled in for at least a temporary stay in Oakland. The A's barely made the playoffs, but that trade may pay big dividends tonight for Oakland's Major League Baseball team as Lester has dominated the Royals and will take the mound in a the Wild Card Playoffs. Lester won his debut start for the A's against the Kansas City Royals on August 2 and now takes on James Shields and the Royals in the American League Wild Card game, which airs tonight on TNT. More on Lester's wife Farrah here. The »
A little bad blood might be good news for Major League Baseball’s postseason. How about a Beltway World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals? Or a Freeway Series between the L.A. Dodgers and L.A. Angels? Or another Bay Bridge Series between the Oakland A’s and the San Francisco Giants (this time without the earthquake)? TV coverage of the postseason shuffles a bit under Mlb’s new eight-year, $12.4 billion TV rights deal with partners Espn, Fox and TBS. The playoffs begin Sept. 30 with the Al wild-card game on TBS. Espn will air an Mlb playoff game for … Continue reading →

There’s no question that the National Football League is America’s most popular sport, and Major League Baseball doesn’t want baseball fans to have to choose between pro football and the World Series.
For the first time in 24 years, baseball’s World Series will open on a Tuesday (Oct. 21), according to the postseason schedule laid out by Mlb on Thursday, a move that will considerably limit the number of times that baseball and pro football clash during the Fall Classic.
Under the previous schedule that started on a Wednesday and set its seventh game for a Thursday, there was the potential for four World Series games to go up against NFL action — two on Thursday (Games 2 and 7) and one each on Sunday (Game 4) and Monday (Game 5).
And in 2014, that would have meant baseball’s championship round would have opposed a “Thursday Night Football” game on CBS (featuring Peyton Manning »

After being introduced to Dana Fredsti’s take on the zombie apocalypse last year in the form of Plague Town and Plague Nation (read my review here), I’ve been looking forward to the concluding part of the trilogy and I’m happy to report that I haven’t been disappointed.
Picking up right where Plague Nation left off, our heroine Ashley Parker is plunged straight into a battle with the undead, Fredsti launching into her trademark breakneck pace that doesn’t let up until the end of the book. As the title suggests, the zombie plague has progressed from its initial outbreak in Redwood Grove (a la Racoon City), via the whole of America, and now to the rest of the world, having finally gone airborne.
Ashley’s story is focused on San Francisco, where she and the rest of her Wild Card team – people who have survived zombie »
This weekend’s Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa opened on a serious note and it proved to be a turning point for the existing contestants of the show. Saturday’s show opened with rehearsal footage of existing contestants. All the contestants were called on stage and the two unsafe contestants who would be in the face-off this week, would be announced.
Sreesanth and Puja were the two unsafe contestants. Puja was disappointed to be in the face-off once again.
For the first time, the face-off happened at the beginning of the show. Puja and Rajat were the first to perform. Their chosen dance style was Freestyle, and they performed to the song ‘Teri Meri Prem Kahani’ from Bodyguard. Their prop was a picture frame. All the acts would be featuring a prop this week as this was the theme. As always, Puja’s scores were saved and would be revealed after Sreesanth performed. »

The TV Acad combined the top longform categories in 2011 when miniseries were extremely rare creatures on TV. But just three years later, whether they’re called “event series” or “limited series,” multi-part longform productions are busting out all over the place, even on the broadcast nets.
HBO’s bold move to field its eight-hour romp in the Louisiana swamps, “True Detective,” as a drama series cleared the way for “Fargo” to be the undisputed frontrunner in the miniseries heat. And HBO’s “Normal Heart” is the one to catch in the movie race.
Indeed, the real footraces in the longform category this year are unfolding in the acting categories, which remain a combo plate of movies and minis. »

The best drama on television right now is playing out in the incredibly overcrowded drama race. Consider this: Last year’s slate of nominees was “Breaking Bad,” “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “Homeland,” “House of Cards,” and “Mad Men” – and did not include “The Good Wife.” Remember the shock waves that caused? Throw into the mix “True Detective’s” entrance into the race, which is guaranteed to knock out at least one more.
Come Thursday, at least two heavyweights are going to be disappointed. And that’s before you consider the wild cards waiting in the wings: critical favorites like Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” which burst out of the gate its first season with compelling performances and razor-sharp writing, or FX’s spy thriller “The Americans,” which found its voice in season two with a marital drama played out against cunning plot twists.
Let’s start with the locks: »

There’s new blood coming to Emmy’s comedy race this year, and it’s long overdue.
When the Primetime Emmy nominations are unveiled July 10, there are sure to be some stalwarts among the contenders for best comedy: namely, “Modern Family,” which has clinched the top prize for four consecutive years. Also likely to return is “Veep,” which has been nominated the last two years, and “The Big Bang Theory,” a three-time nominee in the category.
Another strong contender is Lena Dunham’s “Girls,” which has been nonmed for its past two seasons, but has slipped a bit on the pop culture radar the last year. And Louis C.K.’s “Louie” returned for its fourth season on FX after a 19-month hiatus, but the series is by no means a slam dunk: it was only nominated for the top prize once (in 2013) in its three previous seasons.

Whoopi Goldberg may have an Oscar, a Tony, a Grammy and a (Daytime) Emmy, but it’s hard to make the case that she could handle hosting The View all by her lonesome. (Who, exactly, would interrupt her every 10 seconds during “Hot Topics”?)

Each year since its inception, the Cinetopia International Film Festival has grown by leaps and bounds. This year finds the festival expanding even more into the Metro Detroit area, which means some of the best films from around the film festival circuit will be available. Unfortunately, that also means you may be forced to make some hard choices. I’d be willing to wager it’s nearly impossible to see all of the films that will be screened across the ten Cinetopia venues for this year’s festival, which means you might need a bit of guidance when planning your festival experience. The Cinetopia staff has been offering their Top 5 Picks throughout the past month, so I thought it was time to jump in the ring myself. Below are the five movies you should not skip at this year’s festival.
