Today, during Schilling's no-hit bid, you interrupted draft coverage to cover the last inning of what could have been baseball history. Why didn't you break in on any network during Mark Buehrle's no-hit bid that turned out to be a real no-hitter? It's not just that. I think I speak for a lot of fans in the Midwest when I say that your network puts a large emphasis on the East Coast. We just want all regions of the country to be covered fairly. For one, no more hour-long NYY-BOS pre-shows.

I can't speak for what ESPN did or did not do outside of Chicago during the game, but I do know that coverage, game highlights and all-around MB man-love dominated the next 24 hours of Baseball Tonight and SportsCenter.

That aside, the facts are that Schilling is more famous than Buerhle, the Red Sox are more famous than the White Sox, and ESPN's interests are in making money, not in serving every fan of every team equally. They're a profit-motivated company, not a municipal body or an elected official. ESPN doesn't owe us anything.

ESPN's job is to market their product (sports-related entertainment) to the largest spending base they can, not to appease each and every customer. That you choose to give your money, time, and attention to an inferior company and product that are not meeting your needs as a consumer is your problem, not ESPN's.

Think of it like this: if there were multiple grocery stores in your town and one of them only sold pie crusts and hot sauce, and you hated both of those things with a passion, would you shop there? Or would you look elsewhere?

If I could opt out of getting ESPN for a reduced charge on my cable bill, I would (I can afford to miss the few Sox games they carry). But I can't, and in order to get the bulk of Sox games that are on CSN I have to have a cable package that includes them. But I'm still paying for it.

I don't even want ESPN for the coverage of Chicago teams. I can get enough coverage from local channels/news outlets. I would want ESPN for the national coverage that they represent themselves to offer. What upsets me though is that knowing they how they treat us, it must be even worse for small market teams. There aren't multiple national sports networks that I or anyone else can get coverage from. If there was only one grocery store in town selling pie crusts and hot dogs you're damn right I would be *****ing at them. And I don't think that the market is such that it could support two national sports networks right now. So unless ESPN goes bankrupt, the barriers for another firm to enter the market are going to be too high to overcome until the market grows more, which means I'm stuck with ESPN as the only choice for national sports coverage on television.

ESPN is just being short-sighted with their Yankees/Red Sox-centric coverage. Come playoff time, they and Fox will be crying because no one is interested in the playoff teams that they spent the entire season ignoring.
Very true.
:rolleyes:
If I could opt out of getting ESPN for a reduced charge on my cable bill, I would (I can afford to miss the few Sox games they carry). But I can't, and in order to get the bulk of Sox games that are on CSN I have to have a cable package that includes them. But I'm still paying for it.

I don't even want ESPN for the coverage of Chicago teams. I can get enough coverage from local channels/news outlets. I would want ESPN for the national coverage that they represent themselves to offer. What upsets me though is that knowing they how they treat us, it must be even worse for small market teams. There aren't multiple national sports networks that I or anyone else can get coverage from. If there was only one grocery store in town selling pie crusts and hot dogs you're damn right I would be *****ing at them. And I don't think that the market is such that it could support two national sports networks right now. So unless ESPN goes bankrupt, the barriers for another firm to enter the market are going to be too high to overcome until the market grows more, which means I'm stuck with ESPN as the only choice for national sports coverage on television.
If I could opt out of certain cable channels in exchange for lower rates, I'd have no more than 10 channels and would have a very pretty cable bill every month. Unfortunately the cable companies like to screw you. Want to watch one damn show? Buy a package with 60 new channels. Want to watch one fight on HBO? Here's like nine channels. Enjoy.

Yeah, and if one more ball was called a strike, Buehrle would've had a perfect game.


:rolleyes:

Could've would've should've. I'll refer to the chaos theory in Jurassic Park, if that error hadn't have been made, perhaps the A's would've gotten a hit sooner and maybe even won the game. :cool:

I didn't realize that people around here got so defensive when pointing out the obvious. Just remember everyone, if it didn't happen to the White Sox, it's not important or worth discussing. :rolleyes:

It is true though. No Lugo error and it would have been a perfect game.

How do you know it would have been a perfect game? Are you certain that, without that error, the rest of the batters would have seen the exact same pitch sequence through the end of the game?

After Buehrle's no-hitter, either he or Pierzynski mentioned how that walk to Sosa sort of freed them from the pressure of not trying to walk anyone - which may have indeed helped him in the end preserve the no-hitter.

Schilling seems to have a fondness for the mound in Oakland as he seems to always pitch well there.
I was hoping that he would get the no-hitter because it is quite an achievement and i love the game.
However;I have to admit that having the east coast teams shoved down my throat all season has paid a price because i used to love watching the red sox play and now i find them slightly irritating because of espn.

It's really not hard to figure out. Take away the error, Stewart never makes it to bat. Sans error, it's a perfect game.

Of course you're never going to know the outcome if he makes it perfect through 26 batters. He could start second guessing himself with pitch selection and he could have blown it sooner.

My gripe is when posters on here put the blinders on when ESPN points out the obvious. Some of these guys are never happy unless the White Sox are on ESPN as much as the Red Sox and Yankees, and soon as they are, they complain they are on too much.

The order of batters leading off every inning would've changed, and thus the order of the game. Schilling may have had more or less time between innings, or overthought in the dugout sooner. There's nothing to say that geting that out gave him a no-hitter. The only thing that is true is that Schilling didn't get it. A year from now noone will remember almost.

But, what's wrong with pointing out "coulda/shoulda/woulda" as equally obvious? If we made a list of perfect-except-for-one-error games in MLB history, that list would be pretty long and the achievement wouldn't be all that rare or special.

Actually, many of those channels that you don't watch contribute to your bill being lower than it might otherwise be. Many cable networks pay the cable providers to be on their system. They make money from the advertisers, the cable makes money from the network, and you get a channel that you won't watch. The cable company packages that channel with the more popular ones so that they can tell the network that so many millions have access to the channel. Then the network can tell their customers (advertisers) that so many millions of potential viewers have access to the channel.

John McCain tried to push through a la carte requirement but studies show that it would actually raise cable rates because of what i outlined above.

Fenway, I hate to burst your bubble, but the Yankees did what most of the Free World did when learning that the no-no was broken up with one out left. Nobody, I mean NOBODY, outside of Boston can tolerate Schilling. That fact is understandable since he seems to feel the same way about anyone who does not subscribe to The Curt Schilling View Of Life.

I hate the Yankees Roger. But I like Roger. Greatest pitcher possibly ever. I'd probably be rooting for him if he got close. I don't need to hear boston media further push the legend of Schilling with a scrape on his heal, and a close to no-hitter against the mighty oakland A's lineup.

You know what would be hilarious? If he kept the no-no but found a way to lose.

It is impossible to pitch a "no-no" and lose. "No-no," a term egregiously overused by virtue of the fact that many people don't know what it means, is short for "no-hit, no-run game." Joe Cowley pitched a no-hitter for the White Sox in 1986. He did not pitch a no-no because Reggie Jackson hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning to score a run for the Angels in Anaheim that night after Cowley walked the bases loaded with one out. (Cowley walked seven in the game, but Burt Hooten walked eight in his no-hitter.) Cowley's feat wasn't a no-no, but it was his last major league victory.

For a pitcher to get credit for a no-hitter, he has to pitch a complete game of at least nine innings without surrendering a hit. Giving up no runs, he cannot lose.

Commentators who point out that that error cost Shilling a perfect game are only doing their job, just as they pointed out that Buehle's walk to Sosa cost him a perfect game or that Dick Bosman's own error in his 1974 no-hitter, which allowed the only baserunner, cost him a perfect game. In that case, he had to pitch well enough to retire 28 straight batters, but a pitcher can hardly be credited with perfection when he makes an error.

In Ewell Blackwell's 1996 New York Times obituary, the author focused on the fact that had the Reds pitcher not let Eddie Stanky's broken bat grounder go through his legs on June 22, 1947, he would have matched Johnny Vander Meer's feat of pitching two straight no-hitters. He gave up two hits in the game, but Jackie Robinson's hit came with two outs. Schillings near-no-hitter will probably be mentioned in his obituary.

It isn't a given that Schilling would have made the same pitch selections and such without the error behind him, but it is petty for people to object to commentators pointing out that he earned outs for the first 27 hitters he faced.
