Who could have ever expected Baseball Tonight to lead with Yankees-Red Sox today? On Opening Day, I couldn't possibly imagine ESPN giving more attention to the Yanks and the Sox than the other 11 games taking place today, especially considering one of those teams finished with the third worst record in the American League last season. It's not like ESPN is going to funnel down the entire 2013 MLB season into a running diary of two northeastern franchises, both of whom may miss the playoffs this year.
Nah, that would be so unlike them!

@NealBradley I hate how every time they play, they dedicate 30% of the show to it. Why not cover rivalries like Cubs/Pirates?
@awfulannouncing Complete analysis after the game on "Yankees and Red Sox Tonight."
@awfulannouncing uh, this is basically the pregame show for that game.. Just turned it on & they were talking Angels, Reds, Nats, Dbacks...
@awfulannouncing But what is Tim Tebow doing?
@awfulannouncing and they're not showing Strasburg's start today.. Shame..
@NBbowler It's who they are, and it has been for a while unfortunately.
