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.
I've got something for Mr. Selig... Honestly, Minnesota is where they're at because they are a good team, a good team that didn't need an super sized salary to go out there and play solid baseball and win games.
