The Corner

As a Baseball Fan …

I am starting to hate Fox. They have the Yanks and the Red Sox, the greatest rivalry in sports, tied for first with two games to go against each other, and they keep putting it in a teeny box on the bottom right of the screen so they can show what’s going on in Indians -v- White Sox. I know that’s an important game, and I assume it is being shown as the main game in the Cleveland and Chicago markets. But I want to watch the Yanks and the Sox. They can give me scoring updates in the other game, but I don’t want a split screen where I’m supposed to try to watch both at the same time. As a fan who loves baseball but doesn’t root for the Yanks or the Sox, I find it annoying. If I were a Yankee or Red Sox fan, I think I’d be about ready to kill somebody.
