Pedro vs Andy
actually your thread looks like the Yankees are winning in game 6 3-2. ;)
Don’t make my disasterous posting night any worse. LOL
I remember when World Series games were played during the day. They would announce the scores over the PA system at my elementary school.
I think it would work in the year 2000s. It is an unconventional and unlikely move. But it works for March Madness. It works for the Olympics.
We have TV problems positioning these start times in prime time due to the time zones.
I say throw the first pitch at 3:15 Eastern Time. if only I called the shots. lol
I will be honest. Joe Buck sort of ruins the World Series for me. I am used to the great broadcasters like Mel Allen, Red Barber, Vin Skully, Phil Rizzuto, etc.
Joe Buck has no personality and can’t tell a decent story like the great ones could. Why was he selected to announce these games?
Even Ronald Reagan at WHO radio was a better announcer than Joe Buck.
WIN WIN ANDREW EUGENE PETTITTE!
Bob Costas is a GREAT World Series announcer.
Sean McDonough was pretty good on CBS in the 90s. (Phillies fans remember “Down the left field line ! way back ! gone !”)
Joe Buck has ruined TV baseball period.
He blathers the obvious, offers no insight (other than prescripted “drama”).
And his drone is such a drag.
Much rather listen to John Sterling (he’s on WCBS 880 AM in the NYC area)
and it lasted 2 1/2 hours per game and didn’t end at 1am the next day.
Has anyone else noticed the strike zone expands when the Yanks are pitching? Or does it always expand for the World Series?
Are you on a crack pipe ?
Joe and Tim have been undercover Yankee cheerleaders since 1996.
Pedro pitches out of his mind enraging Yankee fans. Petit wears down early as Ryan Howard remembers he is a baseball star and matches Utley’s pair of homers from last night. Lidge redeems himself with a white knuckle save, setting up a a game 7 between the increasingly nervous and tightly wound Yanks and headcase Cole Hamels. At least thats the way I dreamed it last night.
Are you kidding. They hate the Yankees. I’m not smoking tonight! LOL
I don’t even know where the strike zone is anymore. And baseball is my favorite sport.
That is is how pathetic the umpiring is.
Something like that...
Because his Dad was a great announcer. What makes it even more infuriating is that “humble” Joe Jr constantly acknowledges the fact that his easy life was handed to him on a platter.
I think the Phillies bullpen is on retainer from the pharma industry to increase sales of hypertension drugs in the Philly metro area.
Didn’t Mitch Williams make the makers of Diazepam rich ?
All the games have been ridiculously close with literally dozens of plays that were inches if not millimeters from flipping the score. I have to admit I find baseball the most nerve-wracking sport and I’m a casual Phils fan who only starts paying attention half way through the season. I can’t imagine what it’s like for people who have careers riding on this stuff.
I am an Indians/Reds Ohio baseball fan. Just like President Bush was a Rangers/Astros guy. You can get away with it in a “football state”.
The 1997 World Series broke my heart.
The Indians were 3 outs away from winning game 7.
Sometimes I turn off the TV sound and turn up the radio...
PS - Anyone figure out who that big guy was (green shirt, gray sweatshirt) in the Philadelphia stands, standing and rocking side to side directly behind the home plate?
Man, was that annoying to watch!
World Series game 6 thread.
The Yankees made a big mistake taking Melky Cabrera off the roster. He is the most underrated player on the team, and often provides the spark they need to win.
Joe Buck’s Father was one of the best. I don’t think any announcer was a good as him doing football on the radio.o
Yea baby , too.
Quite the opposite. I can’t figure out what strike zone their is for the Yankees. They showed two pitches to Jorge Posada that were several inches outside AND low.
I have a trivia question for everyone (and this is a question which is appropriate for Free Republic). When was the last time the Yankees lead a World Series 3-2 and lost the last two games of the World Series at home?
I tried listening to the ESPN radio announcers and thought they were great. But here’s the problem. Fox is delaying the televised baseball game about 50 seconds before they broadcast the show. Thus the radio call is always 50 seconds before the video action.
The SOBs at Fox Broadcasting are probably doing that on purpose so we can’t listen to the radio broadcast while watching the game. I can’t listen to Joe Buck, so will just forget about the game tonight.
A trivia question for everyone. When did the Yankees lose a playoff series when they had a 3 - 0 lead in a best of 7?
If the Yanks didn’t pull it off tonight, I’d be seriously worried that the Phillies probably would be able to come back and take game 7 also!
Anything can happen. The Phillies are a good team. They’d be facing Sabathia for the third time in 8 days and on short rest. That doesn’t seem to bother him, though. However, the Phillies have next to nobody to pitch, and they’ve mentioned bringing Cliff Lee out for some time on two days rest.
It’s been a good series.
There’s some solid fielding right there.
Has been a good series! I doubt big time that the Phillies will be able to do it tonight, though..
Beat the Yanks at home during the world series?
They did it game one, but not gonna happen again!
Nasty bounce on that triple
Cliff Lee and the Yankees offense being catatonic did that.
Gardner thought that ball would come off the fence softer but it hit a pole.
They are having trouble hitting against Lee... they got both games he started.
Scored five against him last time.
When you’re down by six, five ain’t enough! This ain’t horseshoes!!
Yeah, no kidding. I just meant Burnett was the reason they lost the last game, not Lee.
The first game, Lee was the reason they lost and Sabathia wasn’t.
Jeeter was batting like he had ants in his pants - man, he’s been ready to unload for about the last three games...
They all look comfortable, especially Jeter. You know he lives for this.
ARod that was a strike three.
If by “strike three” you meant “was in the lefty batter’s box,” then yes, you’re correct.
The ump thought so and the center field camera did too. The overhead camera was iffy.
