Jeez-us! Another White Sox loss on Espn classic. (Boston, 10-03-90) It's good to see those guys again, that was one helluva year. Thomas and Fernandez in the majors for under 3 months and looking great. Where has the time gone?

Pasqua was gunned down at the plate by Mike Greenwell. That looks awfully familiar. :angry:

Isn't it great to see Sammy Sosa get a hit right up the middle for our Sox???????

WHat should they show? I don't think TV was invented when the Sox had great moments.

They did show the 15 inning(?) game vs. Cubs from a few years back last year.

Would love to see that game vs. Yanks from 2000 where Lee hit that lead off homer off Rivera in the 9th and then Valentin hits the GW hit. I was at that game and the dinger came from nowhere. I never got to see the game on TV.

Terry Bevington was the third base coach. He was even worse than Wally.

That 's "espn classic sports"

Before that they showed a documentary on Carl Yaztremski, then after, Ted Williams. ESPN is all about the redsox. When i turned it on, i didnt even know what game it was , but i knew the Red Sox would come out on top.

They really love showing the WhiteSox and Chicago teams lose in that. The only team they ever show win is the great Bulls dynasty!

I caught one the other day, the Cubs blowing the '84 playoffs to the Padres. Oh, how I laughed! What a snooze-fest, Cubs vs Padres.

Well lets take a look. The bulls won 6 (?) championships over the last 10 years. The Sox have won there last championship in 1917 and the chubs even before that. Other than the bulls there hasnt been a whole lotta winning going on with any other teams

Am I the only one who thinks it's a crock to treat a division-winning teams' clinching game as a "classic," when said team later goes on to blow it in the playoffs? They couldn't even win a pennant, so who cares about clinching a division. Heck, even the
Cubs can win a division title every now and then, it's the pennant that matters.

What a difference from todays broadcasters around baseball.

I forgot about that game, but got mad all over again when I watched it. We should have won that game, or at least tied it and sent it into extra innings. Tom Brunansky made a diving catch in right field for the third out, but he dropped the ball. You couldn't see him drop it on T.V. because of that weird angle in the right field corner, but the announcer could see it and yelled "he dropped the ball!" Before the umpires even had a chance to say anything, the players and fans were already rushing the field to celebrate. Nothing else was ever said of it. We had two runners on base who probably would've scored on that hit and tied the game.

Darn cheaters!

Guys, ESPN focuses on teams like the yankees and redsox, cuz thats where the money is.....there is no other reason. More people tune into ESPN sportscenter from the east coast, than anywhere in the country. Its simple logic.

And teh other reason is ESPN is station in Conn. Just a little east coast biased there.
