One of the "Yes" guys just said that ESPN has ‘graciously’ agreed to air the 8:05pm Yankees/Marlins game tonight in "New York and Florida markets".
Now, first of all, "gracious"? This is a joke, right? New York games bring in ratings, pure and simple. Nothing at all ‘gracious’ about ESPN making this call.
Secondly, I’m cranky about this because I am one of those people who would rather watch a Yankees/Marlins game than a White Sox/Astros game (my apologies to Thomas, but it’s true). The outcome of the Yankees game affects the Red Sox, even in June, so it is a game I would much rather see.
And any Sunday night that I can go WITHOUT watching Ozzie Guillen and WITHOUT listening to Joe Morgan…well, that’s a dam fine Sunday night.
