Yes I know it's been brought up many times, and I for one have always believed it but today I was really irritated when I saw how obvious it truly is. Now as much as I hate ESPN I do like every now and then for the WS vs. say the Tigers/Indians/Twins be the game of the week on Sunday, but going through the White Sox schedule they had not one game scheduled now I'm sure it is subject to change but as of now they have none. Not only that but in fact the White Sox only have 4 scheduled broadcasts on ESPN throughout the season, The Red Sox have 5 in April alone and the Yankees have 6. 3 times the Red Sox are the Sunday night game of the week and the Yankees having 4.

And at the same time, there are no games schedule for Washington or Baltimore.

for being the Eastern Seaboard Programming Network, they sure do fail.

The Cubs must play on the East Coast as well. East Coast of Chicago. at the least.

I for one am glad ESPN isn't covering the Sox; as I can't stand Joe Morgan's commentary.

And weekday coverage gets pre-empted in our market anyways, so we still get Hawk/DJ.

But yeah, ESPN is pretty blatant with it.

Well, the Cubs play closer to the lake, but the White Sox play further east.

New York for some, Boston for others...




ESPN does deserve some credit, it took them more than 15 minutes to broadcast Red Sox/Yankees highlights on tonight's Sports Center, and it wasn't even the first baseball story to receive mention. Granted, the NFL Draft is a pretty big ****ing deal, but at least they talked about it first.

If I have a bone to pick with ESPN today it's the 10 minutes they spent talking about Brady Quinn's slide during the draft and how it's gonna cost him millions of dollars. Yeah, I know I'm certainly going to cry myself to sleep knowing some golden boy athlete from Notre Dame is only going to be worth seven figures once he signs his first contract as opposed to eight. What a shame.
