I probably will tune in for a few innings, but I don’t think I’ll be in front of the set for the whole game.
Will you watch until Wright, Reyes and Beltran get an at-bat or two, then turn it off or will you stay for the whole nine?
Like you said, I’ll probably watch the first few innings.
i wish i could watch the whole thing…i prob wont because i have to make a shopping pitstop…and maybe go out for a movie…
i hope to get the first couple of innings at the least though…
sucks to be in oklahoma for the summer…i did go see a minor league game but it wasn’t against new orleans…
I’ll watch our guys and maybe flip over once and awhile to see the score, but that’s about it.
By the way, what’s with these weird posts that keep coming up from old threads?
I’m gonna watch the entire thing. The first few innings should be the best to see our guys but Beltran played all 9 last year so one of the three could again. The three replacements for them are Cabrera, Hardy, and Rowand. Cabrera is hurt so he might not play so we could see 9 innings from Wright. It could be cool to see if Wagner gets the chance to close it out after Hoffman’s blow up last year.
Will watch until Bonds comes to bat…turn it off and then wait for the rest of the Mets…
Will keep the sound off so I don’t have to listen to all the noise the FOX machine makes….special effects and the blabbering of Buck and McCarver…and to think that McCarver was pretty good with WOR-9….guess his ego got in the way..now they’re both Cardinal fans and so obvious about it.
Wish MLB didn’t have such a long contract with Fox…they ruin baseball during the season and in the post season
Once the mets are out of the game Im gone. I will turn the channel when Bonds comes to bat and I will not buy anything advertised on FOX ever because of thier blatent bias against the Mets in last years playoffs.
John why are you such a hater? seriously you sound like an old man with your non-stop complaining over inter league and the all-star game.. you know theres a huge group of people out there who love these close games filled with superstars I just don’t understand why you hate it so much.. Inter league play doesn’t take away from it.. people see the superstars from the other league every night on sports center and baseball tonight.. so i guess you hate ESPN too.. maybe they should just make the opposite league a complete mystery just for you.. you know who would like that.. NO ONE
im gonna watch i love to see all the great pitches of all things
Am watching now and plan to see the whole darn thing. I bet all those professing disinterest are still watching and will be doing so to the end! That includes you, John. ;0
I turned it off after Billy gave up the 2-run shot.
Yeah that game was just so boring I couldn’t stand to watch that 1 run game bases loaded bottom 9…
An inside the park homerun great pitching.. great defense how boring
how on earth does LaRussa leave Pujols on the bench? Aaron Rowand? come on…
something happened there with La Russa not using Pujols, that was a simple move to make, anyone makes it, yet La russa didn’t, and the hitter happens to be the star of the managers team…hmm, protecting him maybe? its BS in my book, La Russa is sticking it to the other teams because he knows he won’t make it back to the WS.
Turned it off after Wright’s AB.
As I hear more and more of him, I am growing ever more convinced that Joe Buck is a complete buffoon. Latest example: Sometime during the early part of the broadcast (probably during Beltran’s AB), he reported that the Mets concluded their road trip by losing the series in Houston. Guess he doesn’t understand that going 2-2 is neither winning nor losing a series; it is actually called “splitting” a series. I’m beginning to wonder if Buck’s IQ even challenges LaRussa’s average BAC.
Thanks to our very own Billy Wagner, i was able to turn off the game and get a good night’s rest when victor martinez launched one….how embarrassing. Thanks Billy!!!
Many ppl on this blog do not care for interleague play. The concensus seems to be it distorts the schedule and is uninteresting.
It also serves to take away from the debate as to who is best which is an endless source of unverifiable conversation where both parties are right.
If the Yanks do not play the Mets at all (except for the silly preseason one ) all year long NYC can talk about who is better. Can so and so get this guy out.
When you play 6 games you have something real to talk about so the conversation dies. If you meet them in the WS some of the fun of projecting is gone.
IMHO it is best to get rid of interleague play as well as the DH.
Hi John –
I watched the whole thing from 8PM til the last out. Because I’ve always followed a team in each league, I am familiar with all the players and look forward to seeing them work as a team.
I’m glad they devoted so much time to Willie Mays – he’s San Francisco – and a real baseball sportsman. Willie seemed quite taken with Derek and Junior Griffey – maybe because both of them have the same charm, ability and respect for the game that he has.
I knew I should have turned the game off when I saw Wild Thing Wagner appear…..........
Nice to see the cheers for Willie Mays when 40 years San Francisco was a town that cheered Nikita Khrushchev and booed Willie Mays. Wagner must have thought it was a big game..he failed again.
Did anyone see Reyes sike out Beltran and Wright in the player introductions. So funny! He is awesome. You can view the video at MLB.com and then click on “Player introductions”
adl, ya got me laughin my ass off.
For 2007’s All-Star game played in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park … I mean AT&T Park, the New York Mets were the hottest team on the ticket as Reyes (3 for 4), Beltran (1 for 3), and Wright (1 for 3) did their team proud in a tight game last night. The Amazins were well represented both in number and in quality. Imagine a team occupying 38% of the lineup in the All-Star game—AND doing something about it! That’s our team! (But Wagner’s performance? Ouch!).
