Your MLB Announcing Schedule For The Weekend

Thursday, May 08, 2008

Here's your MLB announcing schedule for the weekend and it looks to be a good one. Why? No Buck or McCarver! I'm not sure why FOX decided to use a St. Louis play by player and a Brewers analyst for the Cards-Brewers game, but that's who you get if you're in the Midwest. Interesting idea for a day.

Here's the rest of the sched....


New York Yankees at Detroit- Dick Stockton, Eric Karros (FOX, 3:55pm, 54%)

MARKETS INCLUDE: MARKETS INCLUDE: Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Charlotte, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Fort Myers, Greensboro, Greenville, Hartford, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Norfolk, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Providence, Raleigh, Richmond, Seattle, Tampa, Washington, West Palm Beach

Arizona Diamondbacks at Chicago Cubs- Kenny Albert & Mark Grace (FOX, 3:55pm, 37%)

Joe Buck needs two days to recover from his "Celebrity" Spelling Bee?

I'm guessing the McLaughlin-Schroeder team is being used to cut costs since they will already be in Milwaukee and won't have to fly anybody in for a game that is going to 8% of the country.

Luckily, I have a family function that will keep me from seeing the Evil Empire on TV.

Wow... McLaughlin gets picked up for a "network" game.... That clearly won't make his head any bigger than it already is.

You are right. Who would want to watch 2 first place teams, when you could watch a .500 team and a team 5 games under .500 duke it out?

Joe Buck must be pissed at the Tigers - he hasn't done any of their games since the World Series two years ago.

Not that I'm complaining.

Dammit! Sad Yankees fan in Cincinnati here. Cubs-D'backs is a good matchup but I hate missing any NYY games.

FYI the Daily Show guest tonight was a blogger/author discussing issues similar to the sports ones debated here recently (i.e. MSM's attitude towards blogs/bloggers). Of course it was geared towards political blogs but much of the same principles apply.

I Guess the idea to use a St. Louis play by play Man and a Brewers analyst for the Cards-Brewers Game Is Fox Sports' Idea of "Fair And Balanced" Broadcasting.
