Selected Games
Washington at New York NL | 18:10 ET

Boston at Minnesota | 19:10 ET
Red Sox commentators Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy had literally a 15 minute conversation about the equator during yesterday’s broadcast, during which Orsillo definitely asked the question, “Is the equator real?”

    I gotta say, the parts of the braodcast I saw today were awful. They constant cut away from the game to show me some visual that I don’t care about at all. When doing an interview, eighty percent of what we see should still be the game, with occasional cuts to the interview, not the other way around.
