Being OCD and a big fan of Monk, this makes me very happy.

I'm also happy because now games will start sooner. Granted, it's just a minute but it's something.

What does this mean for the team financially?

What does this mean for the team financially?$500,000 less a year.

Good thing Andruw Jones is in the best shape he's been in in a decade.

I think it's just me who enjoyed hearing Gene say, "Oh thank heaven, 7:11." :redface:

It all makes sense now. This is why we can't get a full time DH.

Rumor has it we are in talks with AM/PM on a similar sponsorship. MLB has been reluctant to clear 40 day night double headers though.

From Mark Teahan's twitter account:

Just learned the White Sox lost the 7-Eleven sponsorship. I'm pissed. Was planning on discounted Slurpees all summer.
