  1. You have Baltimore vs Texas. Should be Texas vs Toronto.

  2. Just plain weird...MLB Network gets the rights to one game out a 5 game series in both NL series....so Costas intervenes in Chicago for one game, then splits to LA to intervene for Game 3. What a screwed up arrangement MLB has with television in the modern day. Just have the rights to at least one series, or why be involved at all?

    1. I don't see anything wrong with it. This way it allows MLB Network to get a couple of coveted playoff games. Given their distribution, you probably couldn't give them a whole series yet.

    2. This is why MLB Network has Game 2 of this Giants/Cubs' NLDS matchup Saturday night. FOX itself has a College Football game between Washington & Oregon, while FS1 has prelims for the PPV UFC 204 from Manchester, England. That being said, you know there will be fans scrambling to find MLBN, let alone FOX Sports 1 for that matter for the first 2 games of this Giants/Cubs' matchup. I think the same people were complaining in regards to TBS getting the games a year ago.

    3. Why didn't Vasgersian to the MLB Network game at Wrigley? doesnt make sense…

  3. I think you may want to switch the announcers you have for the ALDS. http://www.masslive.com/redsox/index.ssf/2016/10/boston_red_sox_vs_cleveland_in_9.html
