I agree with Bell, they spend too much time on the big 3 teams and seem to ignore the rest until they want to bandwagon ride the Rays or whatever team is hot. It's not just baseball tho. They have their fav 3/4 teams or players in each sport. It's really bad reporting in my opinion.

Welcome to economics 101. They make more money by focusing on the popular / large market teams and you can't fault a business for wanting to make more money.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

I understand that, but It's also why I prefer Yahoo sports, CBS Sports or even Fox Sports.

East Coast bias, FTW.

I hope the Rays win the East, and the Wild Card comes out of the Central. That'll shut em up, until the off-season, at least.

Man I really get mad when I get so mad I ruin my underpants. Poor Bell. I feel for him.

East Coast bias. Hm. Someone said it before but ESPN is a biz. They are in it to make money. Yanks, Sox, Cubs, Mets make money.

But I do agree their anal-ysts are pretty bad.

Are you kidding? They spent most of last year's playoffs talking about what the Yankees would do in the offseason to get back to their rightful place.

A-Rod will be doing a book signing for his new tell-all book this postseason at the site of the WS.

True, they will also do a weekly special on the new Yankee Stadium and new Citi Feild. Then they will spend 16 minutes of the 30 min broadcast talking about the AL East race. Then we can talk about A-Rod's comeback, or Big Papi's wrist or The Mets bullpen

haha I wondered the same thing. He got so mad that he got the Hershey squirts? I honestly can't think of another curse word that fits the bill.
