If Comcast has Hawk/DJ on Friday, then WGN has Kasper/Brenly. Vice-versa on Sunday. Fox has the Saturday game.

Good to see Cubune-owned Comcast SportsNet will be featuring the "lack of votes for players on the White Sox".

Doubtful, since there are New York and Red Cubs games for him to do.

I think we get Lou Pinella.

I love when Fox shows our games, then only shows us to 20% of the nation.

Mets vs. Yankees 50% of the nation.

Im so surprised that the Yankees and Red Sox are leading the all star game voting!

What makes me even madder is that Fox picked up the 8/12 game vs. the Tigers. They will probably put the game out to 5% of the country...

Do you really think they would not show a Cubs-Sox game in the Chicago area? :?:
