Check out Steven Kaus’ Huff-Po column on FOX’s Monopoly on Saturday baseball.cornball cliché

I hate FOX, I hate their dull-ass Saturday broadcasts. I hate the fact that the ChiSox will never be on my TV on a lazy Saturday afternoon because of blackouts and regional broadcasts of lame Marlins’/Braves’ Games, nor will they be available on the luxurious MLB Extra Innings or the posh MLB.TV.

Now I’ll have to put up with Tim McCarver and Joe Buck for 26 reg. season games instead of 18. And Jeanne Zelasko. Ugh. Anybody watching the HR Derby on Monday witnessed the instant drop in the quality of the broadcast once Zelasko opened her pie hole to spew cornball cliché after conrball cliché on Tuesday.

Oh the Humanity!

And what’s worse, the Division Series are no longer on ESPN.

Why?! Doesn’t Selig read shutuptimmccarver.com ? or the I Hate Tim McCarver Home Page? or the countless other sites dedicated to purging our airwaves and otherwise fine baseball-dedicated afternoons and evenings from this douche bag and his posse?

No Responses to “OH the Humanity!!!”

  1. You secretly love A-Rod. Discuss.

  2. Sarah, your constant red sox nation view on things has reached a new level. What do you want the man to say? He was embrassed. He didn’t make an excuse. He didn’t say dirt got caught up in his eye or something lame to that degree. He said he is learning. Get over it. Isn’t it time you write about Manny being Manny? I mean seriously, I’m not trying to pick on you, you’re an excellent writer and I enjoy your tongue and cheek style, but give me a break. You are reaching here. You’re a Red Sox fan, you guys don’t like the Yankees…we get it. It’s truly getting nausiating. I mean i come on this page all of the time and it’s just the same regurgetated stuff from you. Write about Howie Kendrick or Chad Billingsley. It’s enough already.

  3. Sarah Green says:

    Judging by the reception A-Rod gets in Yankee Stadium, not even Yankee fans like him…But actually, I do secretly love Derek Jeter. (Well, not-so-secretly anymore.) Perhaps I just hate A-Rod because I’m jealous

  4. This is rich…

    (from the Journal News) “A shirtless Rodriguez also had two photos taken of him sunbathing in Central Park on Monday afternoon (3 error Monday) that were published in a tabloid yesterday. He and Torre dismissed the idea that his struggles Monday night had anything to do with his midday lounging.”
