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.
:-°

I agree completely. Even though they are big time STL homers I can't stand them. I'm glad some of the games are on Fox because I don't have cable in my place yet so that's all I can get for now. :-° I turn the TV down anyway and listen to the play by play on ESPN radio. ;-D

I agree completely. Shulman and Dave Campbell on ESPN radio are the best play by play guys I've ever heard. ;-D I guess Canadians do know something about baseball after all. :-b

I personally enjoy Joe Buck's play by play and can't stand Joe Morgan. Joe Morgan reminds me of Tom Jackson on NFL Countdown. I would much prefer Buck Martinez over Joe. Now Miller, I think is the best in the game, probably from so many years of hearing him broadcast Orioles games.

What I don't like about Fox is that they distract you with so much stuff. I just want to watch the game. :-? That said, the alternative isn't much better. David Justice babbles and is hard to understand and Gwynn sounds so nasal. :-/

Down with games on ESPN. What about all the poor people who had ESPN stolen from their stolen cable? But I still don't like Fox's announcers.

LOL. Sorry, guess it was a bit confusing. When I moved into my apartment, basic cable was already hooked up. We just stuck with it and recently the cable companies smartened up and somehow took a bunch of free channels off the basic cable (since we don't have a box I think). We now get the bare minimum of basic cable - no ESPN or any other cool channels, but we still get Spike TV and MSNBC. Just don't tell anyone about the free cable. B-)

Your secret is safe with me. If you're in a complex, it should be really easy to remove the traps for some of the better channels. ;-)
