    Where are the Pirates???

    I agree. I know Yankees-Red Sox is always an attraction as are the Dodgers. But I wish ESPN and MLB would showcase other fresh contending teams in smaller markets on Sunday nights (ie, Orioles, Pirates, etc.) Then again, fans of those teams attending games on Sunday will actually arrive home before midnight on a work/school night. And fans of those teams watching from home will actually get to sleep at a decent time.

    Enough redsox/yankees. It’s annoying.

    Good God the only break we’ll get from the Dodgers,Yankees and Red Sox on Sunday Night Baseball will be the Sept 1st game. However, with that being Labor Day weekend it’s doubtful that game would be getting good ratings anyway & ESPN knows it, thats why they’re showing the Mets and Nationals two teams that dont have a prayer in making the playoffs. Most people are out and about partying and in some cases having a “last gasp of summer” vacation that weekend. I know here in Cincinnati we have a large fireworks show on the riverfront, that attracts a huge crowd at the event and on local tv that weekend. But then again this is the Eastern Seaboard Partisan Network were talking about they think we haven’t had enough of the Yankees & Red Sox shoved down our throats

    Idiotic schedule. Where are the Rangers, Pirates, A’s or Tigers??

  • Igwell

    Eight more years of this…

  • billy p

    Washington Nationals, you’ve got to be kidding me! Why, because of Bryce Harper? get real, he is the most OVERHYPED player in baseball since Shawn Abner! Currently Harper is a .260 singles hitter leading off on a bad team, so I ask; Why the Nationals!!!

  • miles

  • JoJo Dominguez

    So are these games set in stone? Concerned that the Sept 8 game will change to Pirates-Cardinals instead.
