I agree with you. Its good to have to watch and/or collect.I just meant that both were regular season games, and relatively unimportant in terms of the standings...
And it's just me, but considering the teams, I'd put a Yankee,, after all those great hitters, finally getting one with 3,000 on par with a Mets pitcher, after all those great pitchers and, quite possibly, the record for one-hitters and ex-players to pitch a no-hitter after leaving, finally getting a Mets no-hitter.
It's a big team accomplishment--so all I was saying was, as the Yankee fans got to enjoy their team's achievement with a game DVD, I thought it was only fair the Mets got what I'd consider, in the context of the team's history and culture, just as big a game for Mets fans as Jeter's game was for Yankee fans.
Not all no-no's are worthy of a DVD, sure--but after so many near misses and given the pitching culture of the Mets (plus Santana's personal story, surgery to no-hitter) I thought this one certainly was, so I was happy to see the game honored with a DVD release (you might not like them, but fans like myself and, if I'm not mistaken, milladrive and others here do like to watch old games, I happily record audio for Mets, Dodgers, and other games, and have the 10-game Baseball's Best Games DVD set, with complete game broadcasts from Mazeroski's Game to Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS.)
By that same token, given the Giant's storied history, and the fact Cain not only gave them their 1st perfect game, but by all accounts a pretty remarkable perfect game, or so it would seem, I'd love to see MLB release a DVD for that game, too--
I LIKE them releasing these complete-game DVDs for major team accomplishments and World Series and postseason games...just me, but I enjoy watching and collecting these DVDs, at least some of them, like the Baseball's Best Games DVD...and soon the Essential Games of Shea Stadium DVD, and Johan's game...Cain's perfect game if they come out with it...Game 6 of last year's World Series...
I just like when they release DVDs of these games and at least give fans the OPPORTUNITY to own and watch them again if they so desire for these sort of occasions--
Jeter was deserving of his, I was just saying I thought Johan was deserving of a $12.95 DVD release as well, and I'm happy his game will get one.
