Twittercasting Red Sox games

Some kind soul is twittercasting this season’s Red Sox games in redsoxcast. This makes me very, very happy.

Here’s an example of what makes this so cool, from yesterday’s game:

  1. hober: d redsoxcast what were dice-k’s final numbers? (pitch count, innings, etc.)
  2. twitter: redsoxcast: Matsuzaka’s numbers: 7.0 innings. 1 run on 6 hits. 1 walk and 10 strikeouts. 108 pitches thrown, 74 for strikes.

The ability of interested followers to affect immediate, positive influence on the quality of the broadcast — that’s pretty cool if you ask me.
