Yankees, Mets fans listening to the radio aren't the worst case for games on streaming services

I'm not without sympathy for those who are increasingly angry with the number of Mets and Yankees games involved in streaming services this year. Not everyone wants all these services. Not everyone can reasonably purchase these services. I really sympathize. Especially for those who rely on baseball to help them in difficult times and situations.

I said so.

When I was growing up, the locals weren't on TV in every game. In 1975, WOR Channel 9 aired a 100 Mets game. WPIX-Channel 11 has played 90 Yankees games. And that was before the cable went into the picture. After the Mets and Yankees games were snapped up by the Sports Channel, these numbers decreased unless cables were used.

And we didn't get the cable for years.

And what do you know? We survived. We survived because we relied on the radio. By watching the radio as a pleasure rather than a compulsory alternative, I experienced the game in a way that even TV couldn't present. When Vin Scully passedthis week, much was told about the importance of turning Southern California into a baseball paradise. This is a learned voice that is available free of charge every day for 6 months.

It was like a baseball fan in the 70's .. Did we like when the game was on TV? Of course, there's nothing wrong with wanting it.

However, tuning with the Yankees game of WMCA-AM and Mets of WNEW-AM was no problem as well. In some respects it was better. The TV announcers only managed what we were already watching, but when they took over the radio booth, they knew they were more responsible for their work.

Therefore, Lindsey Nelson needs to explain the difference between great and normal catches. Ralph Kiner explains why the '78 Mets reminded some of the disastrous pirate teams he played. Bob Murphy has developed a strange but wonderfully signed home run call: "It may go, let's take a look." Of course I couldn't, but Murphy always wants us to believe he can. I did my best.

Phil Rizzuto has always done his best job on the radio, as evidenced by his call for Roger Maris' 61st home run to live forever. He knew he couldn't hang around between pitches, and he rarely did. Frank Messer was 100% professional and efficient, and Bill White was an authority with attention to detail and tips to make it accessible to all listeners.

This is because many baseball fans once grew up. did. I hadn't done any scientific research on this, but I always thought that the average ball fan in the 70's and 80's learned baseball this way. 30 percent from various Little League coaches. And 40% of the men who talked to you about baseball, and at best, talked to you every day, six months a year. If July or October is involved.

Of course, in October, all those games were available for free on TV. But sometimes you will still have to adapt. I remember hearing at least three innings of each of all the Yankees night games on the radio in my room during the 1976 postseason. After all, bedtime was bedtime.

During the entire 1986 NLCS Key Game 5, I returned to college from a mid-semester break. I couldn't see the pitch. And it wasn't that important as I was able to track it on the radio — except during those deteriorating stretches on Route 17, where the radio reception was a bit sketchy. But memory claims that we missed just a few pitches. It was a car with Mets fans. No one felt even a little fooled.

Yes, I understand. Streaming services have forced you to make some choices. And I'm here to tell you that you still have something good — WFAN with John and Sujin, WCBS with Howie and Wayne. And yes, once you get used to your radio voice, you really feel like you know them on a first name basis.

After all, they are friends. We deliver baseball every day for 6 months. 7 if you are lucky.

Vac ’s Whacks

It's worth remembering that the Yankees were still at a pace of 106 wins to play in the match in St. Louis on Saturday. There is a reason why only two teams in history have won 116. It's a ridiculous pace.

J-Hook, who won his first Mets victory (9-1 in Pittsburgh, April 23, 1962), wants to throw a pitch on Old-Timers Day on August 27. .. Thirty people in his family in Citi Field, all wearing his old No. 47. "It will be my way to thank everyone for their support," said Hook, who turns 86 in November.

I found it interesting that Daniel Jones' consensus opinion would be 180 degrees different from the present in four months.

Wackback in Vac

N. McD:Monty vs. German. History repeats itself.

Vac: I think there is a clubhouse leader in the WhackBack of the Year.

Frank Giordano:UConn's Paige Bueckers are in the spotlight. Unfortunately, she will be out for a year with her ACL broken. She plays the game like the original game. I think we should all expect the page bucket to come back soon.

Vac:There was a lot of depressing sports news this week. Looking at the Booker's news, it may have been the worst. Such a great player.

@ brittan98793876:Being a Mets fan is like being in a Rod Serling script. "Twilight zone" every time. But I like it.

@MikeVacc:On Thursday nights eight and nine times, many Mets fans thought William Shatner was looking out the plane window. increase.

John Tesauro: Gerrit Cole is too stinking in my opinion. Despite the hype, he wasn't the same pitcher as they cracked down on sticky stuff. His blunder against the Red Sox in the playoffs game does not show the ability to stand up on that occasion. Cole is neither Scherzer nor Verlander. If they need to count on him for a significant victory, I'm afraid Yank is in trouble.

Vac:This is a 100% fair view. And it's the call that does something about it. If possible, as soon as possible.
