The MLB On FOX: Making You Dumber By the Week

Some off-hockey stuff, and because I had no where else to whine about this and Wyshynski's never on AIM on weekends and no one else but the people who read this will listen to this rant:

How retarded is MLB On Fox?

First of all, how often is a game in HD? Baseball is even slower to adapt than the NHL!

Secondly, it's not a national TV package if you air 26 weeks of coverage, 2-3 games regionally each week, and don't include 7 teams at all (Baltimore, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Tampa, Toronto, Kansas City, Pittsburgh).

Third, dropping one game and moving every telecast to 3:55 PM on Saturdays. Three-Fifty-Five. I do not want to watch a ball game at 3:55!

Here's the schedule, as I point out stupidities along the way
