BREAKING NEWS!!1!1!! Yankees Vs. Red Sox To Air On ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball!

EXTRA EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! THE OFT-IGNORED MLB FRANCHISES, THE NEW YORK YANKEES AND THE BOSTON RED SOX, WILL FINALLY RECEIVE SOME ATTENTION AND WILL BE FEATURED ON ESPN’S SUNDAY NIGHT BASEBALL BROADCAST ON AUGUST 7TH AT 8:00 P.M. ET!

Crazy stuff. So much so, ESPN insisted on actually issuing a press release announcing the wondrous news.

Now, I get it: two huge markets equal boffo ratings. But throw fans from other markets a bone every now and again. Oh, that’s right, they do – if they happen to be playing the Yankees or Red Sox. And every so often, the Phillies. Then a small market team from the podunk flyover country might be featured.

Tell you what, ESPN, how about your marvelous network issue a press release when the Sunday Night Baseball game ISN’T Yankees-Red Sox when the teams are facing each other? Not that would be newsworthy.
