over Dodgers/Mets?

I guess they know what they're doing and that the Yankees always trump TWO major media markets in one game...

Or maybe nobody wants to insult the Yanks, lol?

It's really silly that A's fans have to watch two games starting at 10 AM just so two EST teams can play in prime time. Plus, now fans in LA have a 1 PM game. The Tigers-Yanks series was perfectly made to fit into the TV schedule, but no, Fox can't possibly not get them in primetime.

No shock FOX picked NYY last night as they make a killing selling local ad time on WNYW, FOX 5 in NY.

Its all about the time zones. Which one makes more sense to broadcast in prime time? A game where both teams are in the same division (one of which has the largest market share in the country) or a game where teams are on opposite ends of the country? This is a no-brainer to choose Yankees-Tigers.

I wonder when they will air the games if it ends up being a Yankees-Dodgers or Athletics-Mets WS? There is a four hour difference between the cities.

It's only a three hour difference but it's still an interesting question. Would they really make Dodgers, Padres, or A's fans watch games starting at 5 PM? On the other hand, would they be willing to push games back to 9 EST? My guess is Fox will figure their ratings will be better by satisfying east coasters.

I'm a PE.:redneck

But fenway is right, even if both teams are on the west coast, the games will still start in eastern prime time.

Just imagine the people in Hawaii. I was in the Honolulu airport watching the final game of the 2003 World Series...at 3:00 in the afternoon.
