on national television Apr. 16 on Fox. I believe the earliest prime time game on National free tv since Monday Night Baseball on ABC.

So, instead of Remy/McDonough on Friday Night baseball I have to listen to Buck and Tim 'Let me move Joe Torre's colon a bit so I can see' McCarver? Me not happy. At least when it happens on Saturday's, I don't have to listen to Orsillo. Now, within the first 2 weeks I have to hear Joe 'I invented baseball' Morgan and McCarver call Red Sox games. Yet again, me not happy.

Just turn on 'EEI, if you can. I'd much rather Joe and Jerry than any of the national teams. Between Jon Miller's strange obsession with himself and his Spanish language skills, the Yankee shills on Fox, and the pure idiocy of Morgan, I think anyone's better. Hell, I rather enjoy the unintentionally goofy aspect of Orsillo's commentary; the way he talks about his penchant for donuts, for example.

I can't win with Red Sox games. I HATE Don Orsillo with a passion, and Sean & Jerry are getting robbed of a game. Maybe they'll let Remy call the game with Joe Buck; he's certainly less biased than Tim McCarver, and he's been good on the national stage before.

Look, be happy you at least get NESN. We don't, because our cable company's decided we're a Yankees town (even though the NEXT TOWN OVER gets it). -_-;;; As far as I'm concerned, it's one more game I can watch, and that's all that matters for me.

You're from Connecticut; Connecticut's Yankee territory. My mom grew up in Cheshire and she didn't even know Boston had a team.

Off topic, where do the other New England states (especially Vermont) come down, predominately?

It's official: I am now resigned to root against BOTH teams. Considering this whole off-season it's been this hype between The Poor Suffering Chowds and this Evil Money Tossing Empire andohbythewaythereare28otherteams.

Rhode Island probably falls 70-30 Red Sox/Yankees, as the Italian population still thinks DiMaggio is playing Center. Of course, this does provide the benefit of local radio picking up Yankee games.
As to listening to the Sox on Radio when game is on FOX or EEI: I get EEI a hell of a lot better in the car than I do at home, and local radio is 3 seconds behind the TV after both signals reach.
As to what to do in Connecticut with the cable company: If, in their infinite wisdom they decided your a Yankee town, in your wisdom you can decide your a dish house.

Actually Connecticut is the state that the Yankees have to drive through after losing to the Red Sox in Boston!

Tell that to my dad... then offer to fix it for him when it breaks. Parents won't put in the necessary maintenance. However, I'd seriously look into a dish when I move out.

Well, the only suggestion I can offer then is the one I had to use when I was exiled in Miami for a year and the Celtics actually started playing good basketball and Red Sox season started: Find a bar with cheap booze and a dish (best if there is a happy hour. Get bombed then on cheap booze at half price, and work on the hangover watching the game. Cheap, and it adds to the general enjoyment of figuring out how they'll screw up an 8 run lead.) Or a bar the town over with NESN in the cable system. Or, if you have digital cable get the MLB package. Sucks being out of market, but, at least its not 10-15 years ago where you'd have zero to barely any options.

I went to Sports Illustrated's website and checked out the New England states that are in their "SI 50th" feature. There are no poll results yet for MA, NH, and VT but the other states have their poll results up for favorite sports teams. Results for favorite baseball teams are:

CT: Yanks 42%, Red Sox 26%, Mets 12%.
Maine: Red Sox 77%, Yanks 7%.
RI: Red Sox 64%, Yanks 13%.

EDIT: Links inserted.

I really enjoy Miller & Morgan. They're just about the most relaxing thing I can listen to...kinda like the old how-to-paint shows on PBS, just makes me feel all comfy to listen to them call a game.



At least some day maybe I'll understand why some day maybe you never can. Or something like that.

We can sit and lament about the annoying "old-school" ideology Morgan brings to the table...but I would NEVER call him an idiot. To use a cliche, the guy's forgotten more about baseball than we'll ever know.

Maine is Red Sox territory. Wearing any Yankees gear in the bars around here is a very bad idea.
