    Phillies – Giants!
    And while we are on the subject…. Why in the he11 is Yankes/Sox on ESPN…AGAIN. This is a tired old matchup.

      May be they are on ESPN this time because they are the closest thing baseball has to a Hatfield-McCoy Feud, or may be it’s because they are are fighting it out for the AL East Division both having identical records or may be it’s because ESPN realizes that game gives them the best opportunity for the best ratings. After all isn’t that what TV is about ratings and sponsor revenues. That’s just my opinion.

      To be fair and I don’t want anyone to take this the wrong way but the Phillies pretty much have their division locked up. Plus the Phillies/Giants game doesn’t start until 10:15pm ET. As for the other match up in the headline and this is where I’m problem going to catch the most hassle. Does anyone outside of Dallas/FtWorth/Arlington area or Cleveland really, I mean really, care about a Rangers/Indians match up on TV.

    So, this really epitomizes what every non-Yankee fan hated about Derek Jeter’s run to 3k hits. While he was getting close, HBT had two articles sitting on its front page about this chase at all times.

    Now that Thome is two HRs away from 600, his chase can’t even crack the top three in things to watch this weekend. And 600 HRs is FAR more of an accomplishment than 3000 hits.

      Who the heck cares about Jim Thome? Or the Twins? Come on, wake up!
