I know this has been mentioned before, but I was wondering if anyone actually had the Sox's win-loss record when they play on ESPN. It seems like they haven't won an ESPN broadcast game in ages. Any info? Anyone?

Well, they actually won on Monday... However, it's not very good, at least to my memory.

Didn't we just win one on Monday?

It isn't just the won/loss record, but the way the Sox tend to lose when they play on ESPN. It seems like it is always some kind of weird series of errors, manager mistakes, and/or pitching meltdowns.

Fortunately, the league also counts the games that aren't on ESPN. So we are still in good shape.

I think it's ridiculous to think that ESPN doing a game has anything to do with how the Sox play, this is the same territory as those who believe in baseball curses. In case they didn't know, the Sox play nationally everytime they're on WGN. Yesterday's game had nothing to do with bad luck, but questionable managing decisions.

IIRC Didn't they lose every game they played on national tv last year?:angry: :whiner:

I certainly don't believe playing on ESPN has anything to do with it. No one is saying playing on ESPN is a "curse" or anything; it's just uncanny how bad the Sox have looked many times when they have played on an ESPN channel.

For me the infamous pitching meltdown in Seattle a couple of years ago on Sunday Night Baseball was a particularly bad one.

I think we need to petition ESPN to remove brantley from all broadcasts

They would probaby just take Brantley off and put Steve Phillips on.

For me the infamous pitching meltdown in Seattle a couple of years ago on Sunday Night Baseball was a particularly bad one. Almost all espn games cause the "normal" game times to be changed. Breaking the normal routines of the players. That's about as close to a "real" reason that I can think of.

Tomczak doing the NIU bowl game was less horrid than the brantley show on ESPN. And Tom was pretty terrible

We'll be in "good" shape when we're 10 games up.

Cleveland is trying their hardest right now to make us 3.5 up. I'd classify that as "OK but still not so good" shape, personally...

:cool:

I remember three ESPN games from last year (though there probably were more): We won a tight game at Baltimore on a game-saving play by Uribe, and we lost close ones at Seattle and at home against Boston.

Wasn't the Seattle game the one where Koch walked in the winning run?
:angry:

I admit that we usually do suck it up on nationally televised games, but I don't think it is more than coincidence.
