That’s a shame, too, because baseball fans love to see their favorite players humanized. In covering baseball, those humanizing stories are probably the only aspect of coverage that TV does well since almost all of the real news gathering is still done by the writing media.
That’s neither here nor there, of course. The point is too many people missed a pretty decent show about the Phillies. So in this region, Comcast SportsNet will pick up the slack by re-airing the entire series.
Here are the scheduled air times:
|1||Mon., Aug. 3||7:30 p.m.||Sat., Aug. 29||12:30 p.m.|
|2||Mon., Aug. 10||7:30 p.m.||Sat., Aug. 29||1:30 p.m.|
|3||Wed., Aug. 12||7 p.m.||Sat., Aug. 29||2 p.m.|
|4||Mon., Aug. 17||7:30 p.m.||Sat., Aug. 29||2:30 p.m.|
|5||Mon., Aug. 24||7:30 p.m.||Sat., Aug. 29||3 p.m.|
|6||Sat., Aug. 29||3:30 p.m.||Mon., Aug. 31||7:30 p.m.|
And by pretending to be Rickey Henderson, I mean imitating his home run strut, not his on-base percentage.
If they could re-do the show I'd like to see more of the witty banter between the relievers in the bullpen and the fans out on Ashburn Alley. From what I hear from some of the guys that hang out there, it's like a comedy routine.
