View Full Version : Odd Start Times

Why does the MLB have games start at 2:55 like today. I can understand the 7:07 and 7:05, because it gives the broadcasters an oppurtunity for quick preview, allow for a short commercial, and then the game.

But 2:55?

NFL is 12, 3 or 7:30
NBA is usually 6:30 or 7:30

Is there any rhyme or reason to the MLB start times?

Same reason. The national broadcast starts at 2:30 and they talk for 20 minutes about all the big games of the day, then around that time they switch to regional coverage.

For baseball fans on the west coast, more viewers, more $$$$.

That's what FOX wants.

Fox apparently also wants Buck and McCarver, so your point would be... ?
