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.

    WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN? Do MLB and Fox hate the youth of America? How can we be expected to choose between making our children miss the World Series or letting them stay up past their bedtimes? Who will ever think of the children?

      It’s just MLB’s friendly way of reminding you that the East Coast is no place to raise a child.
