That is pretty cheesy.

My biggest peeve with Fox and ESPN is the showing of Cubs and Braves games so much. Both teams have their own network, so I can see them all the time. I'd much rather see Seattle vs. Baltimore or somesuch matchup. If I want the Braves, I'll watch TBS, WGN for the Cubs......I hate not having the ability to get extra innings or one of those satellite services!

It depends on where you live. I live in CA so I get alot of Dodgers and Angels games.

I have been without cable for about 3 weeks (another week to go) because of bad grades and such and Fox is pretty much all I got to watch baseball with (occasianal Cubs/Sox games on channel 9 as well). I used to really like Fox Broadcasting baseball, dunno what happened.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Kinda off topic, but does anyone else miss NBC's coverage of the baseball playoffs as much as I do? Costas and Morgan were great IMO. ;-D

I believe it may be Uecker.

He is one of the funniest men alive. I read a book of his once, as you might expect... very funny.

Yup, it's Uecker. Thanks to willieroe1 (Better known as Ueckerites in my AD league) for the correct spelling.

I miss 1969 and 1986. :D
