I wouldn't read too much hoopla into this; it's basically what they've been doing on and off for the last couple years anyway, similar to Wednesday night, and it's non-exclusive so the local teams will still have their broadcasts, unlike on Sundays when it's Disney-only.
The big news here is bad news: no more Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day telecasts. Phooey on them.
Pardon me if I still think Minaya's an idiot. He mortgaged the farm for rentals in MON, then spun those rentals off for nothing when it became clear he couldn't really win. (Floyd, Colon) Granted his hands were tired, but, eh... I am not impressed.
