Please post old youtubes where it's not clear who wins the game. no spoilers are allowed. this is a late season 1985 matchup between the cardinals and expos, a game of the week called by vin scully and joe garigiola (they're great), and with lots of pre-game stuff featuring the mets (the other game of the week - dwight gooden is pitching) and interviews with cesar cedeno and vince coleman. good game, to boot

watching a nice 1979 doubleheader at wrigley, celebrating jack brickhouses's 5000th broadcast. i believe this is the first game i've heard him call. he's wonderful. i love the pace of this broadcast and the way they capture the game. they almost always show a full instant replay, after every single play, no matter how mundane, and it's from the same angle as the original live shot, and at the same speed. it's so nice to just get a chance to see it again. there are a lot more long, lingering shots of...nothing. players just standing there, adjusting their balls, or a 30 second shot of the dugout as some pinch-hitter takes fucking forever to find his bat.


i didn't realize garry templeton was kind of a side-arm thrower? (maybe he wasn't, and just happened to be going in a phase in 1979)

keith hernandez just made a very nice defensive play at first. :)

if it's just me on this thread, every single fucking youtube is going to involve the cardinals

Miguel Dilone - kind of a proto billy hamilton, except he's not a good fielder?
