Why do they relegate one game (naturally the White Sox game) to the nether-regions of a workday day game? As if ALDS or NLDS games really draw any ratings outside their regions. They should just have them all at night instead of punishing fans to make a few extra advertising dollars. Then, come ALCS and NLCS time, they don't have as many games to juggle anyway.

:angry::angry::angry:Screw you, MLB, ESPN and Fox. SCREW YOUOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!:angry::angry::angry:

eh, just venting. I'm just so fed up with the constant shaft we get as Sox fans. Feel free to add your venting as well.

Duh, it's because the whole nation wants to watch the Yankees play.

It was funny listening to Mike and Mike whine about the Yankees having to play the late game the other night complaining about how the poor children won't be able to stay up and watch their beloved Yankees, because they have to go to bed.

Of course, never mind the fact that the first game in Chicago was started at a time when most children would still be in school, and most fans would still be at work.

This will probably be the last mid-week day game for us. All the ALCS games are scheduled for night games, except for Sunday the 16th, which is at 3:00. Game 2 (Wed) is the only one still TBA... I'm assuming it's a night game.

i went to walgreens and bought a $25 cheapie b/w TV. i feel much better now, even though i still think the situation sucks. i hope the Yankmees, Braves, Cards and Astros go down in flames and those bastards get their worst nightmare - a Sox/Padres World Series.

Our office is shutting down at 3:00 pm for the game. We are all headed to Union Park in the West Loop.
