A minor programming note to pass along, as Major League Baseball has announced that every World Series game between the Rangers and Cardinals will begin at 8:05 p.m. ET.
This is welcome news in that the scheduling for the World Series last year was mostly hit or miss. We had one 8:20 p.m start due to NFL coverage on FOX, three 7:57 p.m. starts and one 6:57 p.m start.
This still isn’t a perfect set-up, as an afternoon game on a Saturday would be fantastic for fans, but as long as it isn’t 9 p.m. in the second inning, I’ll take it. Though with the way the starting pitching has fared for both teams recently, that might happen, anyway.
