it's funny, all of these stations hire all these people to call games, yet the Dodgers just use Vin Scully and he calls the games great...
Watch sportscenter, do they care to cover baseball 2 days before the season starts? No, oh but plenty of pro football stories. I wouldn't even mention ESPN in your story. They don't care about baseball.
@CUbsfan I have a Correction to make, Dennis Eckersley actually filled in for Jerry Remy on Boston Redsox TV games from Friday August 16th- Thursday August 29th!
