  1. I find baseball slow and dull and I have not watched the World Series in years.

    • I have not watched baseball since the Expos moved out of Montreal.

      Maybe that same higher up decided to show Fox’s feed not because of MLB International’s sub standard coverage. Rather, the executive’s rationale might have been so that Sportsnet can get the simsub on Rogers Cablesystems.

  2. On the french side, RDS will also be on site for all the games with Alain Usereau and Marc Griffin in the booth. A 30-minute pre-game show is schedule for games 1 & 3. Every games will be on RDS except games 1 & 6 which will be on RDS2 (both will be JIP on RDS after Habs game).

  3. Dan, something odd just occurred, Sportsnet just switched abruptly from MLB International to Fox’s feed. I guess someone higher up at Rogers decided that enough is enough with MLBI’s sub-standard coverage and switch to Fox’s more professional game presentation.

  4. MLB dropped the ball by not observing a moment’s silence for the soldier killed in Ottawa and not playing O Canada before the game, like they did before the hockey game in Pittsburgh. Thumbs down, as Dave Hodge says on The Reporters.
