Default Just when we thought it was (at least somewhat) safe...

...Bobby Valentine is back on ESPN.

You may be right. I try to minimize my ESPN studio show intake to College Gameday.

The analysts on Baseball Tonight aren't the problem. Hell, I like Eric Young. There. I said it. I think he's funny.

However, Baseball Tonight is an ESPN show, and naturally it needs to center its attention on the Dodgers, Red Sox, and Yankees. They even had a segment especially for Manny Ramirez this year. I wanted to shoot myself. Seriously, I need to get MLB Network. I saw it once and it is a godsend. It has good analysts (except Plesac), good coverage, and therefore good ratings.

Who cares about Bobby Valentine.

If you have MLB Network, ESPN's coverage is irrelevant.

I thought Valentine was hounding for a managerial position. I doubt he'll be on The Network by Opening Day.

Yep, I haven't tuned in to Baseball Tonight once since MLB Network started up.

I'll put in my recommendation for MLB Network in case anybody is on the fence. You'll wonder why you ever watched Baseball Tonight.

IMO, other than the actual play on the field, it's ALL crap.
