Anyone else wish all the games were on ESPN?

I hate FOX broadcast of the games. Buck and McCarver are awful, then we have Scooter the animated baseball, and annoying graphics all over the screen. Games are so much better on ESPN with Miller and Morgan or Buck Martinez. Plus ESPN has the K-Zone, which is 10 times better than any of FOX's annoying graphics.

Agreed, 110%. I can deal with Scooter, but Buck and McCarver are way too much to deal with. Buck is perhaps the most annoying sports announcer IMO.

I agree.... FOX is terrible. The plus side for me: All games are broadcast on Rogers Sportsnet (Canadian Channel) but the ones that FOX does, are also on my FOX channel. That's a bonus for me becsuse I stole my cable and every time a maintenance worker on my campus uses their walkie-talkies, Rogers Sportsnet's audio cuts out from the baseball game and I can hear them talking back and forth Image

So when that starts to happen a lot, I switch to FOX if I can. With ESPN I have no choice but to put up with it. I wish TSN (Canadian ESPN affiliate) would run the ESPN ballgames though, so I wouldn't have to hear a bunch of maintenance guys talking in the middle of all the games.

Of course I could just not be a cheap bastard and pay for cable, but that ain't gonna happen.

The best announcer has got to be Dan Shulman. I wish he would come back to cover the Jays, but it looks like he is taking over for Miller when he retires.

Lol. :-D

I actually pay for my cable. Looking forward to the upgrade to a dish. :-)

That's OK... I could pay for it if I wanted to, but I'd rather put the money to other uses that university life demands ;-)

Plus, I have a vendetta with the cable company. They charged me $160 for cable over the summer when I wasn't even living here (it was a student cable package; they knew I was moving out) Image and didn't bother to call me until the first semester started. So now I'm showin them whose boss :-D

Not showing him up at all. I'll do that when I pull out the old Loaiza threads. Lmao! :-b

Simply stating that I'm stuck with cable right now and that I'm looking forward to upgrading to a dish. :-)
