Twins vs Yakees on TBS... God I hate TBS for baseball. I hope they do a better job of it on TBS than last year.
This sucks, having games in the afternoon during the week.
There won’t be a lot of work getting done in my office on those days.
On the other hand I work a night job at post office and aft starts work for me; as for night games I could listen to radio at work but new “energy efficient lights” screw up
reception. If my local station carries them at all, I may have to set up a cass deck at edge of building, record, and hear back later...
But wknd games will be easier...
My SF Giants clinched the NL West this afternoon. Yay!
TBS picks one new TV show to advertise (Frank Caliendo’s show, George Lopez’s show) and they run those ads over and over and over during the playoffs.
>>> I could listen to radio at work...
Is there a decent WiFi signal you could use? An iPod Touch with the iHeart Radio app is better than a radio. No static at all...
Wait! They forgot the Mariners. What? oh, never mind.
>>>TBS picks one new TV show to advertise...
I hope they have rethought that process... and I’m already thinking of muting the TV and listening to a radio or something if TBS’ announcers are as horrible as last year.
VTW today is the anniversary of the shot heard round the world.
Congrats on the Giants. My Mets finished...79-83. :(
Not in the type of job I have, sorting mail.
In Boston there is one sports station on AM 850 (Red Sox,
Celtics) and one on FM 98.5 (Patriots, Bruins). It used to
be that getting Red Sox was very easy when they were on AM
680 (near where I work). Then they shifted to 850—I needed
something to beam the signal from a boom box to my sorting case. Then new lights came in—and everything went kerflooey.
Even the FM 98.5 with Patriots (such as tomorrow night’s
game) is tough to get.
I even tried an HD portable (on sale for $40 at Best Buy).
If I tuned to FM 93.7, I could get the AM 850 on a sub channel. Problem was, on workroom floor that was good for 2 seconds then I lost signal. And then with new lights...
Yeah, in the breakroom I have better luck (radio).
We do have a TV in breakroom and in the past when Red Sox were in playoffs they could try to tune it to Fox, etc. but they
didn’t get channels like TBS.
Now they have that one TV set to one channel.
CNN Headline News.
That’s right, BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!! from Nancy Grace.
Don’t have an iPod touch; maybe it would work but who knows.
In some cases I can dash into a bathroom for a few minutes and catch the game but I do need to be back on the workroom
floor...thus the “record it and hear back later”. On an
AM-FM-Cass. mini boombox ($20, Rite Aid). Not live though.
They’re my Giants, too! YAY!
Giants baseball: ORANGE TORTURE!
My tagline has been there since March.
I believe Internet streams (iheartradio is definitely an Internet stream) of MLB games are blocked. You have to have an MLB audio account to access MLB games on the web. It’s also a flash player when on the web, so unless they have an iPhone app, it wouldn’t play on an iPhones browser.
Doomonyou’s 17 year old daughter went to the game today and her hero Buster Posey went yard. She was flying high when she got home!
Fear the Beard! Beat Atlanta!
They bow down and pucker to the NY and CA media market-Yankees and Giants get prime time. Rays and Rangers get 1:30 PM ET- who the heck is watching TV at 1:30. Phillies and Reds get 5:30 PM ET - almost as bad.
Phillies have been in the playoffs the past several years, yet they still get squat as far as the broadcast time.
Oh, how cool!! We’re BIG Giants fan around here in the bootless household. Funny thing - when Buster flied out in the (?) 6th inning, I had a feeling he’d park one in the seats. Just one of those things.
I was at Game 5 of the 1989 NL Playoffs - saw the Giants win the pennant. It was SO exciting.
So happy for this young lady! Not bad for a bunch of (ahem) mercenaries. Matos musta confused the Giants with the Yankees. Don’t they ever learn?!
You bet! Fear the Beard!
MLB on iPhone/iPod Touch - there’s an app for that... get all post-season games.
Fear The Claw!
I am very BIG fan of the SF Giants, and yes even Barry Bonds (sigh!) I am also glad that Dave Rigetti is still with the Giants.
wait ‘til next year!
The best pure hitter in history.
He gets more INFIELD singles that most teams!
And watch out for those antlers!
I'm a rather tepid Yankee fan at this point in life, but my wife scored two luxury box tix to go to new Yankee stadium this year--against the M's. I didn't really appreciate Cliff Lee that night. He sent the Yanks down all night, but in a sort of boring way. But Ichiro? I was cheering for him! He'll be in Cooperstown one day I hope. He deserves it.
Not sure about “in history.” There have been some great hitters. I never saw Hornsby or Sisler or Gehrig play. I mean, you look at Gehrig’s numbers. Not just power. The average. The production. Insane stats. But Ichiro is a great hitter and run-scorer. He was a solid right fielder for a long time too, not sure how he is these days.
MLB also has postseason.tv which is a limited internet streaming video version of the playoffs. It uses static cameras you can pick to watch games.
It kinda sucks, but it’s still cheaper than paying for cable for one month, just for the playoffs.
.315 average, golden glove every year, all star every year, 200+ hit 10 years in a row (no one has done that ever.)
He and Griffey will be the first ones in the Hall. Edgar should be there, but there is a pox on DH players for some reason.
I was actually at the game where Edgar was honored. A street named for him, and the DH of the year award named after him.
Lou Gehrig was a 340 lifetime hitter, with 493 taters and 1995 RBIs. Ruth--342, 714, 2213. I could go on. Willie Mays. Ted Williams. A lot of better all-around hitters than Ichiro. Ichiro is hits, speed, and leather, but not much run production. And after all, it's runs that count. 90 career home runs? Gehrig had 1888 runs score. Ichiro has 1047. Perspective, son. Perspective.
And for good reason. Edgar was a great hitter for a while, and a certified Yankee killer. But get real. Al Oliver had numbers at least as good as Edgar, and he played a position, and no one is saying Al Oliver belongs in the Hall. I'm ok with players padding their stats in the late years DH-ing. Eddie Murray did it. Lotta guys do it. But a career DH? They belong in the Hall when middle relievers get in.
How many years did Gehrig play? Ichiro been there only 10 years. Take ALL his pro numbers (yes, including Japan) and see where he sits. I’d say he was pretty high.
Also, the position in the batting order is of vital importance. A lead off hitter is supposed to get on base, a clean up hitter is supposed to hit him around. With Ichiro on first, the pitcher has to concentrate on both Ichiro and the batter. That is Ichiro’s job, to hassle the pitcher. Hard to do that sitting on the bench after a homer.
Reggie did it, also. He’s in the Hall.
What I am saying is that for a DH, there was none better than Edgar. He defined the position.
Good luck to your team Rush!!!
Japan is a minor league. It’s only MLB that counts. I agree leadoff hitters are supposed to get on base, and score runs. Their function is simpler and less demanding than a number 3 hitter, who is supposed to do everything a leadoff does, plus produce runs. The best leadoff hitter of all time is definitely Rickey Henderson. He scored more runs, stole more bases, drew more walks, hit more homers than any leadoff hitter. He’s top dog in that dept.
Yes! Go Braves!
Yes! Go Braves!
DH isn’t a position. There have been other players who spent a lot of time at DH who did as well as Edgar—Frank Thomas comes to mind. David Ortiz. It’s silly to call the DH a position. It’s a spot in the batting order for people who can’t play the field. A permanent DH is a liability, really. It gives the manager much less flexibility. He can’t spell his more valuable position players by giving them a day at DH. He can’t juggle his defensive alignment based on the situation.He has to put the guy who can’t field in the spot in the lineup everyday. If you are gonna be that guy, you’d better hit!
Rickey Henderson career OBP .401 !
Rickey RUNS : 2295 (first all time,avg'd 121 per season.
Ichiro: 1047, avg 107 per season
So, we've established that while Ichiro is a prolific singles hitter, he's not the best hitter ever, not even the best leadoff hitter ever.
I saw them clinch the division in 2000 (IIRC) and that was awesome, the place went nuts.
Henderson, with his combination of speed and power, is the best leadoff hitter in the history of the game. This from a fan who watched Hall of Famer Lou Brock lead off for the St. Louis Cardinals for a decade.
Well the good thing is that the NLCS will not be on TBS so we have have to see their jumpy digital picture.
I cant stand TBS’s jumpy digital picture. Its practically unwatchable.
