MLB and ESPN have together ruined Sunday Night Baseball.
I’ve totally gone numb after years of being force fed Red Sox vs. Yankees, most of which came with a side order of Joe Morgan.
I’ve seen Boston and New York battle so much in prime time that I know their clubs as well as the Cubs, even without caring to do so.
I have an idea what Sunday Night Baseball could be–what it should be–and it’s not Red Sox vs. Yankees at every given chance.
Instead, it’s a broadcast that should be reserved for games like Sunday’s match-up between Chicago and Boston. Games with great story lines, great history, and great fan appeal nation wide.
But that excitement was lost Sunday evening. It didn’t translate because, well, because it’s just another ho-hum broadcast of Red Sox baseball from Fenway Park. We saw that last week, remember?
