Well, TBS HD still lists shows in the guide as HD when they're not. Tomorrow at 2 p.m. the Braves play their last game of the season on TBS. Should be interesting to see if the game is in HD.

If they have stretch-o-vision baseball, I will be really mad.

Agreed -- that'll be the final straw for me to elicit a letter of complaint to TBS!

Ted Turner probably already has all the HD camera's being sent to Chicago via 3rd class U.S. mail.

Don't count on it. If I'm not mistaken, only Braves home games are shot in HD. The game is in Houston.

There could be a 4 way tie for the WC: SD, CO, PH, and NY.

PH would win the East by the tie breaker rule, but then SD, CO, and NY would have to have playoffs to determine who will be the WC.

As detailed on mlb.com

If there's a four-way tie among the Mets, Phillies, Rockies and Pads:

The Mets and Phillies would play in Philly on Monday to crown the East champ.

The loser would then enter a three-game mini-tournament for which the Rockies, based on head-to-head records during the regular season, would have the option of trying to win at home and then on the road or just once on the road to advance.

If the Rockies choose to stay home, their opponent would be determined by the wishes of the team with the second-best combined head-to-head record; it'd be the Phillies if they're involved, but the Padres if the Mets drop into the three-way. That team could choose to play at the Rockies on Tuesday, but it's more likely that it would opt for a single game and travel to play the winner of Tuesday's game on Wednesday.

If the Rockies opt for the one road game, Tuesday's game would feature New York at San Diego, or San Diego at Philly, with the winner hosting Colorado on Wednesday.

If there's a three-way tie among the Padres, Mets and Phillies: This scenario is possible only if the Padres and Rockies both lose Sunday and the Phillies and Mets both win.

The Mets and Phillies would play in Philly on Monday to crown the East champ.

Monday's losing team would play Tuesday to decide the Wild Card. The Padres would either host the Phils, or travel to New York.

There also remains the possibility that there will be a pair of two-way ties needing to be broken, and they will be created only if the Rockies win Sunday and the Padres lose, while the Mets and Phillies both lose to end their Wild Card bids.

If the Mets and Phillies end up tied in the NL East: You already know this one; they'll play one game in Philly on Monday to crown the champ. And if you're wondering why the Phillies don't just get the division title based on their season-series victory over the Mets, it's because head-to-head tie-breakers are used only when both teams already have a playoff spot secured, and they simply determine seeding. Any regular-season tie that would send the loser home for the year has to be broken on the field.

If the Padres and Rockies finish in a tie for the Wild Card: A one-game playoff will be played Monday at Colorado.

I am confident that TBS will have all play-off's in HD...They surely wouldn't want the backlash if they don't...

The picture is more than nice, it's excellent. There's more to HD than just pointing the cameras. Some channels don't seem to know how to adjust contrast and color saturation. The pq on this game is outstanding.

btw, the announcers mentioned this is the last Braves game on TBS which I'd heard somewhere else before. Where will the Braves regular season games be broadcast next year? All of them on Atlanta's FSN? Doesn't seem fair to people without cable/satellite. Anybody know?

I agree. The PQ for this game is up there with SMTHHD and DSHD.

I think the Braves games will be shown on FSN South (Atlanta) and Sports South. I think TBS is going to have a weekly game with different teams. Since I'm a Braves fan I might purchase the MLB.TV online thing so I can see the games now.

oh, ok. I get both of those where I live. Now the only thing is, will they be HD next year!!?!

What a bummer :(, I hate the braves but couldn't turn the channel because their picture was outstanding. IMO Better than fox saturdays coverage.
