I turned on the TV at about 7 AM this morning (eastern time) to see that the Devil Rays and Yankees were already in the 6th inning of their game. The Devil Rays were leading 5-3. As a New Yorker I am in the Yankees market (even though I’m a Mets fan) and you’d figure that Major League Baseball would what to give their home markets a fair shake when it comes to games that count. When games start at 5:05 AM you have to wonder how much they really care and how much the commissioners office really thinks about the purity and best interests of the game. I suppose it could be worse. At least their doing at the start of the season and not in the middle.
