It is so stupid to play both games at the same time but

in theory the other game will be on F/X but local cable companies have been known to screw this up

What garbage! Thanks for the breakdown Fenway. I really want to watch the ALCS seeing as though its the only REAL baseball on tonight.

Ah well - FX or a sportsbar for me I guess. Or maybe tonight is a good night for some white sox playoff DVD's.

This is so stupid. I live in San Diego, but I get the Cardinals/ Mets feed. How dumb is that. I love the fact it mentions it is geographically set. I never knew that I was closer to St. Louis Missouri, and Queens New York than Oakland.

Probably because SD is a NL town

Hmm, I guess Pittsburgh, Balmer, DC and Philly means Harrisburg gets it, too.

Oh well.

I agree that it is stupid, but it's the nature of the beast. From Fox's standpoint, there are more Mets and Cardinals fans than there are Tigers and A's fans, not that I agree with that line of thinking. Here's my gripe though. Why can't they just start one game at 4 pm and the other at 8pm? If there's an overlap, the 8 pm game can just get moved to FX until the other game finishes.

It would make too much sense to have a 7:00 pm / 10:30 pm EDT (4:00pm / 7:30pm PDT) doubleheader what with the important Fox local newscasts and Simpsons reruns and all. :rolleyes:

Well, it's irrelevant for tonight (NLCS Game 1 cancelled)... but I never understood why MLB doesn't do what the NFL does. Sign 2 TV contracts... one for the NL, one for the AL.

Say FOX gets the AL, and ABC gets the NL all year. Whoever ponies up the most money gets the World Series.

Then again, I don't understand much of what MLB does.

You might be getting your wish, at least for the LCS

Under the new seven-year deals, to begin in 2007, Fox keeps the World Series, one of the two League Championship Series (LCS), a Saturday game of the week for 26 weeks and the All-Star Game. Fox will alternate between the American League Championship Series and National League Championship Series each year.

I can't find if they ever announced who's going to be doing the other LCS, anybody know?
