Also, you are getting your wish. As I pointed out in my other thread, TBS has already lost interest, and on a day to day basis, they are simply not airing some of the games, with no explanation offered. Fox Sports doesn't want them all and ESPN won't even bid on them.
They all should be on FOX but since you said the network doesn't want them all I guess it's no other option


FOX has better quality and better announcers

I watch it the most during the playoffs and remembered TBS doing that last year but wasn't sure about FOX


They need to get rid of it because if you are the manager of a team losing 7-0 you may not be in the mood to talk

They need to get rid of it because it is tripe...

But then they'd have to get rid of 90% of the broadcast

I was just reminded when I turned to TBS to see who winning the Yankees game, the station makes it hard for you to see

how many outs there are

The score

how many men on base


It's like they want you to work for the information

1 dot = 1 out
2 dots = 2 outs
3 dots = 3 outs

It's not like a video game. It's like the most complicated riddle on the planet.

What I;m saying is, once I flick back and forth, it takes me longer to find out the score and outs situation because TBS is not using numbers.

Fox-right away
TBS-5 secs
