According to this (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/schedule/broadcast.jsp?c_id=cws), The Score is only broadcasting ten games this spring, with a handful of them being "interactive." :?: The confusion lies with the number of games, not the "interactive" concept. In previous years, many more spring games were broadcast on the radio, so I'm not sure what caused the decrease in the amount of spring games on the radio. This is disappointing to me as someone who doesn't have cable and won't be able to watch but one game (March 20 vs. the Padres) all spring.

Hm. Curious that fewer games are going to be on the Score, but I like those free webcasts they have. Bill Melton did them last year. Not great quality, of course, but the more games we can see, the better.

I think this (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news/press_releases/press_release.jsp?ymd=20100107&content_id=7887956&vkey=pr_cws&fext=.jsp&c_id=cws) article is easier to read, by the way.

I guess the good news could be the other team may have spring broadcast scheduled for that particular game. You are covered well with either MLB radio or XM radio for more Sox games.:smile:

I'm glad there will be less games on the radio. I'd much rather listen to Bores and Bernstein than listen to practice games on the radio.

Didn't the Score do about 10 ST games last year?

Yuck. People like those clowns?

I'll take baseball anyway I can get it. Even "practice games."

I would guess spring training games are not must hear radio for most fans. It makes sense for WSCR-AM to limit something that would otherwise compel people to tune off their station. In years past, The Score didn't have an afternoon show that was a ratings winner (North and Buffone, Rick Telander Show).

I'm pleased to see there are some night games this spring, and some are being broadcast in some form. I really like those and we've had a scarce amount of them this past decade.

Theyre the exact reason why there should be more Sox ST games on, especially from 2-6. What a couple of wastes.

Sounds like that would be more of Comcast than the Sox. I can't imagine Spring Training games get very good ratings.

Meh I find them hilarious and shows generally thought provoking. :shrug:

I have no idea what they usually show around that exact time, but most of the day they have infomercials on which is probably making more $$$. Even if it was bass fishing on, if they're making very little or no money off of showing that many games, what's the point for them? Running bass fishing probably doesn't cost much, especially compared to airing a baseball game.

The ratings start strong; then when it becomes AA players; people tune out.

I don't have a problem with a small amount of ST games. Give me a taste of what's going on; and I'll be ready when the season starts.
