An interesting and well-written editorial from The Daily Southtown today.

Even as they continue to plow our way closer and closer to the 2005 play-offs, the Sox just can't get the recognition they truly deserve. I don't know why Fox wants to televise another massacre of the Cubs anyway. I think just about everyone is tired of seeing that.



I know I am, anyway.

Best quote....

"This is a perfect example of the powers that control major sports completely ignoring the fans. Who's making these decisions for Fox? Homer Simpson?"

He might as well be running the Fox Sports department. Who cares about the flubs anyway right now.

As long as were on the whole media thing I picked up the Daily Herald's sports section today and saw an article on Tom Gamboa. Can't they just let that die already.

I called Fox and they had nothing to say but sorry - they have no control over it. Since they can't broadcast in Minnesota either, I doubt there will be a camera crew at the game. If there is a camera crew, MLB.TV should broadcast the game without blackout - but the Fox "exclusivity" probably doesn't let them so I doubt there will be more than 1 or 2 in house cameras for scouting purposes.

At least it will not be the "clinch" game.

As far I as I know, blackout rules are national, so MLB.com would only be a solution if you are outside the U.S.
