Why does the four letter have to ruin a perfectly fine Monday night game by having Boomer do the PBP!?!

If you're talking about berman, his east coast bias is spewing from his teeth.

Was watching it while working out- he referred to Konerko's grand slam in "game 3 of the 2005 World Series" and also that "you just had to feel good inside when the Cubs are winning".

One thing I have noticed this year is MLB Network showing Yankee and Red Sox games with even more frequency than ESPN. That wasn't the case in the past.

He's gotta work himself into shape to call the Home Run Derby.

My favorite Berman Quotes:

"Oooooh he got him to goooo!!"

"Graffinino... Oh no!!! Through his legs, everybody's safe!"

Berman: "The tough veteran is going to pitch out of it."
Iguchi's bat: CRACK!
Berman: "Oh no!!!"

My personal favorite is as Konerko squeezes the ball for the 3rd out in the bottom of the 9th in the ALDS, "And the Red Sox dream of repeating is over".

If you're an "out-of-market" Yankees fan, there's damn sure no reason to subscribe to MLB.tv. Pretty much every game is on ESPN, MLB Network, TBS, or somewhere.

ESPN should give him a mic but don't bother to plug it in.

I've noticed this too. I don't have Extra Innings for the first time in years this season so I've been more dependent on MLB Network more than ever and it seems the Yankees are on all the time.

It seems to me that if I'm an Accounts Mgr. at mlb.tv, I am none too pleased about that. Ex-pat NYers is obviously a way too lucrative market to pass up.

You are correct. If you factor in all of the national outlets, there has to be at least 60 of their games on free TV. Maybe more.

Well, I don't mean "free" exactly. I should rephrase that to not needing any extra MLB packages.:cool:

It almost makes subscribing to YES Network a waste of money. The sox have around 10 nationally televised games each year, which means you need to have CSN.

To be fair, a lot of the national networks have local blackouts, so people in the Yankees' market wouldn't always be able to get the MLBN, non-Sunday ESPN, or TBS games.

Always thought Berman was an asshat... this seals the deal.
