Should ESPN really be talking to Felipe WHILE the game is going on? Isn't that a bit much?

BTW, if I didn't mention it in one of the many PETCO threads, I love the edge of the warehouse being the fair pole. That's pretty spiffy.

Be thankful you're not watching a Red Sox game on NESN. They're always talking to people in the stands.

Talking to people in the stands is one thing; their decisions don't effect the outcome of the game. Talking to the manager takes time away from the game and could lead to the team losing. That crosses the line, in my opinion.

Football coaches I can understand, but In Baseball its not like the manager calls every pitch. Its seems like sometimes Joe Torre manages a whole game without even getting up.

Yeah, I read about this the other day..that ESPN had an agreement with MLB to talk with players/coaches in-game. But the way I understood it would be more like, for example, talking to the starting pitcher AFTER he came out of the game, like in the seventh inning or something when the reliever was in.

I wonder if the agreement will stay in place if it continues to be more intrusive than the above example.

I remember a MMQB (I think) a couple of years ago when Kurt Warner said he didn't read any books unless they were geared toward making him a better Christian. Some folks are just hardcore that way.
