Cubs/Mets in a rain delay so would think they would have some alternate programming on. They have the Sox/NYY game from this afternoon, hysterical but stupid at the same time.

Well, they need to keep it "fair and balanced." We had the Cubs/Mets game for last night's rainout.

:D:

Yeah, I suppose they could have shown "Softball Weekly".

Am I the only one here that thinks it was a pretty logical choice for the rain delay?

Exactly, it's no different from when they replay an afternoon game at 7 that same night or replay a night game the following afternoon.

It could have been worse. They could have replayed Sox talk with those two goofs..

On ESPN the Tigers/Red Sox game was on rain delay and they were broadcasting the Orioles/Blue Jays game for me, but I was talking with one of my brothers who's in Texas and he was getting the Twins/Indians game. Why wouldn't they broadcast a Division series here in Chicago?

Whatever happened to the days when "rain delay theater" meant you got to see highlights from the 1969 World Series or the 1971 All-Star game? Much better than watching reruns of Becker.

It's completely illogical. Cubs fans have no interest in watching a White Sox replay. White Sox fans have no interest in watchinga Cubs replay.

According to who?

I'm a White Sox fan and I would probably watch at least some of the replay. Assuming I hadn't seen the live broadcast. If it's not the White Sox being shown, baseball is baseball and I will probably watch regardless of who it is just because I enjoy watching the game.

I would rather watch a baseball game than have a rerun of This Week In Baseball or some crap show like that.

Exactly we were talking here at work about the great things they use to show during rain delays. Last night I had to settle for Becker:redneck

Ha. I love when they put on a "show" for current MLB players, and the MLB guys act like they are so amazed by what these weekend warriors are "capable" of doing.

I think it's relatively rare to find a White Sox fan who would want to watch a Cubs game....especially a replay of a Cubs game.
