don't suppose we'll get any better pq than we did in the nlcs.

fox just don't care.
post #63 of 92
I didn't know if this is a local issue or not but the PQ is horrible. I notice this a lot with football but this look like 480p. If Foxeng is still around here, what's the deal? Horrible.

Directv is my provider in I am in the Birmingham, AL market.

PQ is bad on WNYW-DT NYC FiOS.

Maybe FOX needs to check the settings on their splicers and encoders at the local stations?
It's amazing they can't improve the PQ.
Any wide camera shot has a real bad swimming grass effect from the digital compression artifacts.

WABC-DT has two 720p HD channels and an SD sub channel and they don't have the problems that WNYW does with the digital compression swimming grass effect.

I don't know guys. Game 1 last night looked really good OTA here. Sharp, clear, no blurring.

I thought it started to look better as it got darker last night. For some reason the game has looked sharper tonight than last night to me.

WNYW-DT

My only problem is the swimming grass effect.. It's noticeable on the pitcher batter camera and worse on camera shots that are far away from the field.

No swimming grass here on tonight's game.

And just like that, it's over. Being an NL West guy (Padres fan), I've always known the Giants to have good pitching, but good grief. The Tigers played like kittens and couldn't do jack squat against the Giants pitching.

I think the Houston Astros probably could have beat this Tigers team.

Seriously. Pretty bad when you can't even win one WS game from a team who's starting line-up half-consists of minor leaguers.

I guess they were out to prove that their 2006 WS performance was no fluke.

Get real folks! At some point somone is going to have to admit that the Giants are a far better team than any of the so called experts believed. They won the west by 8 games and beat the two teams with the most wins in baseball to get to the World Series. They have also won 2 of the last 3 World Series titles, so get used to it. There is more to come. Nope, the Tigers are a good team that was defeated by a better one.

Edit: They beat a team with the second best record and the defending champions. For some reason the Nationals were stuck in my head.

....and some of those "experts" were from FOX Sports. Their obvious bias against any West Coast sports team renders them useless and laughable. The Giants this year were a much better balanced team offensively and defensively than the Tigers. The Tigers are good but they just weren't good enough.
post #75 of 92
The east coast bias is understandable if you have ever tried to follow a western team from there. Night games end between 1 and 2 in the morning and are only seen by night security guards.

After putting up with the crud of being the Padres manager (he was a former player with the Padres too), Bruce Bochy is finally getting his due.

for those of us in no. cal. the giants sweep is no surprise. the giants core is built around 5 very good starting pitchers in addition to 3-4 stud relievers. this is bascially the same group
that pitched us to our first title in 2010. the giants offense is anchored by posey and sandoval who were also around in 2010. the fill in the rest of the lineup with proven pros, not superstars, but guys
like scutaro, pagan, pence. where were the tigers 2 superstars in this series? giants got equivalent production from their plugin players without having to commit over $400 million in payroll.

giants management has a plan that involves drafting, developing and keeping their pitchers. 2 titles in 3 years says everything you need to know about how well this formula works.

heck it may be the only thing that kept them from a title last year was losing posey.

by the way, while i was more engrossed in the games than pq, it did seem that the world series broadcast was better than the ncls. didn't notice any swimming grass.

Anyone noticed the horrible flickering / almost strobing on slo mo replay?

Yeah I didn't get the swimming grass either. Must be a compression thing for some of the pay-tv folks.
post #80 of 92
Way I look at it, Detroit was built to win in the regular season, and SF in the post season.

Baseball is funny that way - superstar teams often do well in the regular season, beating up on average teams. But a 7 game series against an equal team is a whole other deal, where defense and smart pitching will serve you well, fat guys with limited athleticism not so much. Bunting a runner over in the SECOND inning when you have a power team and playing your DH in the outfield are signs of desperation to me. I kept yelling "hit it to left, hit it to left!" LOL.

That is a function of the type of lights employed at the stadium. Any type of gas discharge lighting flickers at a 60Hz rate which is too fast to detect by eye. However, when you slow it down several hundred times, it is plainly visible. The color temperature of the light also changes at the same rate and that was visible also.

Thanks for the explanation. They should do a "there's nothing wrong with your tv" announcement.

They're not all that  good. They were inconsistent as heck all regular season.

 

Still, they matched up well-enough where I would've expected them to at least win 1 game. 

 

Anyway, I could barely watch any of these games for long with the sound on. Buck and McCarver are absolutely, insufferably, atrociously unlistenable. Buck is just plain godawful, while nary a word that comes out of McCarver's mouth isn't inane.

This was apparently the lowest-rated World Series in history for each respective game. I think it is true that most East Coast fans simply have no handle or familiarity with the teams on the West Coast, since most of their games start and end after people have gone to bed.

I think Buck could be 1/2 way decent if he wasn't being pulled down by McCarver...maybe not though, its hard to tell.As far as Tim goes though you're almost too kind.

Manilow played 3rd didn't he? Spray hitter with sneaky power IIRC.
