Let's play two

Well, Monday night went off with not much of a hitch, but I suddenly find myself in the position to have bonus gaming on Weds at DLair (from 6-9). I could play a baseball series, or be talked into non-baseball. If you are interested, respond in the comments...

I could easily be talked into gaming more often. I missed out on yesterday's events because of the Boondock Saints thing at Alamo Drafthouse.

Finished my series with Sean yesterday, but I'm getting ready for my trip so I can't make it.

Summary of the series from the sheets I have:

Game 1: Roy Halladay pitched 9 innings and gave up 10 hits and 6 walks. Unfortunately for him they were not scattered with 3 hits and 4 walks coming in the 4 run fifth. He lost 8-2 I believe with Josh Beckett going the distance for me.

Offensive MVP for me was backup catcher Jason Kendall, who went 2-3, drew 2 HBP, scored 2 runs and drove in two runs.

Of my 8 RBIs in the game, 3 were walks.

Game 2 was a more mundane contest, Jeremy Guthrie vs. Tim Hudson.

Guthrie went 6 2/3 innings, gave up 5 hits, 6 walks, and 3 runs all earned. He struck out 4.

Okajima, appearing in relief picked up the loss allowing 1 hit, 5 walks, 1 earned run and striking out 2.

Hudson picked up the win allowing 3 runs over 7. Perez cleared the 8th, and Corpas closed it out for the save.

My offensive MVP for the game was Troy Tulowitzki who went 2/4 with a double and 2 RBIs.

Game 3 was the pitchers show as Sean took a 2-1 win behind the strong outing of Ted Lilly: 8 2/3: 3 hits, 1 BB, 1 run (earned), 6K and a no decision. Jeremy Accardo picked up the win by coming in in the 9th with 2 outs, promptly allowing the runner to score to tie the game, then watching as his team came back to score in the bottom half of the inning. They combined to face 31 batters (minimum of 27).

John Maine pitched reasonably well in picking up the no decision going 8 innings and only giving up 1 run. I believe it was Matt Herges who picked up the first loss of my season.

There were no offensive MVPs on my team in this game. It was ugly.

Raab, Sorry I missed you. My dinner went longer than I expected, and by the time I got to DLair, they said you had just left.

doh! since no time was listed, i just stopped in at 6pm. I watched some warmachine. I was planning on buying the powergrid powerplant deck but it was not on the shelf. Has anyone picked this up yet? what do you think of it? I waited around for about half hour, then picked up something off the discount table. I also saw one of the gamers from Chimera con strolling about, and i recall someone wearing a San Antonio Board gamers Tshirt on sunday, but i didnt talk to them.... they were deep into a Shadowfist (c)cg.

I stopped by at 5pm on my way home from work but obviously no one was there yet, and I didn't know what time everyone was meeting since they block the internets at work so that we will be "productive."

I've got the new power plant deck for Power Grid - it works really well, and gets the game chugging along a little bit quicker. There's a variant we haven't tried yet to use both decks, and take the first plant of each bid number that comes up, so you can't predict what plants will show up - sounds interesting. There are some HUGE plants in the deck, powering 7, 8, and 9!!! cities, but are really only playable if you play the "takes more cities to trigger endgame" variant.

Someone on BGG has posted an great comparison of the two:
