  1. Players You Hate

    That's the PC Richards whistle. They also play the Modell's jingle after every stolen base. Because they don't sell enough ads.

    Yeah, there's no need to eliminate the intentional walk to speed up games. They don't take that long and don't happen too often. I've been saying this for years, but you can easily shave a few minutes off of nearly every Sunday game and all games played in the stupid Bronx if you end the God Bless America nonsense. Do that before you tinker with intentional walks.

    His. http://www.newsday.com/sports/media/howie-rose-islanders-tv-play-by-play-man-won-t-return-next-season-1.11814060 He just wanted some time off. And he probably wasn't thrilled with the commute to Brooklyn to begin with.

    The Islanders' offseason has gotten off to a bad start, Howie Rose is stepping down from the TV booth.
  6. Cutting the Cord: Cable TV Dependency Discussion

    No. If you are in Philly you won't be able to watch the Phillies game on MLB.tv*. Doesn't matter if the Phillies are home or away or if you try watching the Phillies or the other team's broadcast. *I believe there is some in-market streaming this year but you need to sign in with your cable/satellite provider.
  7. I'm a big McDonough fan. I remember watching him call Red Sox games on TV 38 back when I was a kid and when our cable company carried WSBK instead of TBS. If memory serves, he was a candidate to replace Gary Thorne on Mets WPIX games but he decided against it and they went with Dave O'Brien instead.
  8. MLB TV contract

    TBS still has a Sunday afternoon package but it only covers the second half of the season.

    Possible Trout landing spots: http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/70439/think-the-unthinkable-angels-will-have-to-think-about-trading-mike-trout The Angels don't have to actively shop Trout but if a team makes an excellent offer they need to seriously think about it.
  10. Most popular Teams in your City.

    I don't think it's doubtful at all. NY (AL) has only won 1 more World Series than the Mets since 2001, and they haven't won a pennant this decade. Their current team is a mess and their farm system isn't exactly bursting with can't-miss prospects. They may need to suck for awhile before they become serious contenders again, unless they try patching things together from year-to-year by adding free agents which is basically how they got in this mess to begin with. Meanwhile the Mets are coming off a World Series appearance and should be in great shape the next several seasons with their young pitchers coming into their primes. They are a much more exciting team to watch compared to that team up north and will be for the foreseeable future. Besides, it wasn't like they were fielding terrible teams when the Mets owned the city in the 80s. The Mets were just better.
  11. I'm a man of my word. Go Thunderbug.

    Canadians (and others) can vote. They just can't win the trip to the All-Star Game.
  14. Done. I hate the Caps and Pens and have nothing against Tampa Bay. Also I like Thunderbug. I wouldn't mind seeing the Lightning win the Cup should they beat the Islanders.
