FOX has to stop those In Game Mgr Interviews, as they distract from the telecast. This became evident when Moises Alou Homered & Joe was interviewing Lou Piniella;
Tim was entertaining, like his old self in the Superstation WWOR Days. Joe Buck was good as well, UNTIL these words;
"How about them Yankees";
Now, I realize why that statement was made, as FOX & TBS/TNT are the Postseason Networks. Now, why would MLB deliberately schedule 28 Straight Games, all Sub-500 Teams+3 with the Pittsburgh Pirates?
The 2 Networks are hoping to attract the 25-54 Males with 7 Figure Incomes to watch & buy from the sponsors & they tend to live in the NY Metropolitan Area, as well as the 6 Blue-Haired Biddies In Brooklyn Heights, who are quite wealthy. The St Louis Cardinals are not that team, which would deliver this group;
To Tim's Credit, nothing dumb was said. & Buck sounded a bit sarcastic;
