TV and even radio has been running old baseball games. TV is doing something I find annoying. They’re telling you what’s going to happen. There’s a game on MLB channnel that says on the bottom of the screen, “George Brett, 4 hits, 2 HR’s.” Now I know when Brett gets up he’ll either get a hit or HR.
The other day they were replaying Johan Santana’s perfect game. Why watch it. You know the other team isn’t getting on base.
The thing about watching a no-hitter live, is the anticipation of whether he’s gonna get it or not. If you’re watching it on tape, you know he got it. So all you got now is a boring game.
