While plugging the Yankees- Red Sox game yesterday, the ESPN announcer said "Thae Yankees are a game behind the Red Sox." Sure. For the wild card. The Rays weren't considered.

Now you know why I call it Employs Stupid People Network

:scratch: The wild card counts for a playoff spot, no? Then why do you care?

Of all the reasons to get upset at the network, this has to be the lamest.

Rail, what's the problem? Before the game yesterday, the Yankees were one game behind the Red Sox in the standings in the AL East. Considering where the Yanks were not too long ago, that's quite an accomplishment.

If you're not following the AL East Race, that's your problem.

It's not like ESPN's purpose is to keep viewers informed as to what's going on in the world of sports on a day to day basis.

That statement is both correct and relevant, though. No worse than saying the Tigers were 5 back from the White Sox thus COMPLETELY IGNORING THE MINNESOTA TWINS! Could there be a Third Coast conspiracy at work whereby the media COMPLETELY DENIES THE EXISTENCE OF teams that AREN'T EVEN PLAYING IN THE GAME AT HAND?!!?! We're through the looking glass here, people.
