    FOX is going to ruin it by making it a 42-minute weekly ad for FOX television properties and personalities! Love that Katie Nolan, tho! My sister was over to watch it on the DVR with me and she kept wondering why I kept smiling or laughing throughout the show. It was because of all the FOX promotion that made me smile - every 10 secs or so it seemed like another FOX network show, cable network or on-air personality was weaved into the show. Unbelievable!

    Of course the pilot was good. If it sucked, noone would stick around for episode 2. It's what the writers do with the story in ep2 and beyond that will determine if the show stays or goes.

    and finally, man that Ali Larter is hot! Even if the story sucks from here on out, I may have to stick with it to see her!

    Hmmm...a San Diego pitcher relying on on off-speed pitch to get people out. I hope this guy is getting a piece of the pie.



    I may binge watch the show later on. Maybe the Padres can win a few games!

    It's a terrific show and an accurate representation of the pressures of being a professional athlete. Most only see glitz and glamour, this show takes you inside their life and inside their head in a rare and unexpected way. The first episode was fantastic. Not only do I hope there is more than one season, I hope we see the real thing sometime soon - a female in MLB.

    Just watched the pilot episode. It was a great show. Not sure how far this story can go without loosing it's flair but the writers have to be creative to have a full season in the works. The ending wasn't what I expected but a good/sad one.

    I'll watch episode #2 and if it's keeps my interest, I'll keep it on my watch list.

    And yes, FOX cant get enough of themselves in this show. I do wonder who's idea it was to focus on the Ellen DeGeneres & Clinton floral arraignments as the FOX networks arnt exactly Democratic friendly.

    I think I read that it was green lighted for a second season right away, but I could be wrong. I haven't watched the first episode yet, but plan on getting around to it sometime

    It only has a series order. No full season contract yet.

    My bucket
    Edgar Gonzalez Collection: - the 1/1's: 108/111 (97.3%) Have 12 1/1s out of 29
    Jorge Cantu Collection: 487 / 688 (70.78%), 58 1/1s (14 non plates)
    - the 1/1's: 429/443 (96.84%)
    Total Mexican Collection: 3,626

    I think episode 2 should have concentrated on her second start (rather than blow the plotline of that start at the end of episode 1).

    as for ellen/hillary, I figured it was just chicks supporting chick type thing. I didn't think of it as hating dems or not (but I bet many of the PITCH decision-making suits at fox support democrats despite the fact FNC is anti-democrat).

    does seem short but considering I think I read they had Petco for only 3 weeks, that seems about right. It might also be that FOX execs didn't know how the show would be received/viewed so they didn't take as much risk in ordering 10 episodes rather than a 20+ episode season.

    Season 1 of the fantasy baseball show was not too bad.

    Agreed, would watch more. Enjoy the Mike Lawson character a lot.

    don't even have to wait until upfronts in a couple of weeks -- PITCH has been cancelled after one season.

    If you want Ginny Baker and Mike Lawson to make out, you're going to have to do it in your dreams.
