Open Thread: 2/15 Camp Notes
Yankees did not talk about a multi-year contract with Phil Hughes

Just a quick little note: Maury Brown has the FOX broadcast schedule for the upcoming season. The Yankees will appear on the network eight times during the regular season, including five times (!) against the Red Sox. The other three broadcasts are road games against the Tigers, Angels, and Orioles. Click through for the full schedule.

    Sometimes I pray for the return of the balanced schedule. Fewer Yankees-Red Sox games would mean fewer Fox/ESPN hijackings with terrible start times and infuriating announcers.

  • DC_Coughlin

    Could actually be 9 games if the Giants @ Yankees Saturday game in September is flexed by FOX.

  • Easy as 123

    F fox and its blasphemy…. Anyone else see that? ( Asteriod streaks actions sky )

  • Eddard: Back and better than never

    The Red Sox aren’t even going to be that good. This isn’t 03-07, FOX. Why not more Yankees-Os, Yankees-Jays, Yankees-Rays, those would be much better feature match ups.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

      Pretty good chance the Red Sox are better than the O’s this year.

    • Bob Buttons

      And… you go and ruin your moment.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Meh. Still bigger fanbases.

      • Green Manalishi

        Red Sox Nation is declining. NESN’s ratings have decreased by 33% over the last 3 years. Obviously still one of the larger fan bases but not growing by any means. MSM late to notice these things. They live in the past AND too many of them are Red Sox fans.

    Ah Yeah!!! The banhammer has speaketh. Good riddance…

    Thanks Mike!

    As for FOX, at least it’s only one game in the first two months, especially for those of us who constantly get stuck with whatever west coast game is on at the same time.

    • Bob Buttons

      Who got banned??

      • forensic

        Dan Gen, aka 189, 189, 189…

        He had one of his tantrums about the ticket prices and other stuff again, and it seems to have been one too many times for Mike.

        • Robinson Tilapia

          Ah.

          *pours some licka for Dan Gen*

        • Bob Buttons

          Great. Air caviar on me. No second helpings.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

          Didn’t ban him, just deleted the blatantly off-topic comment like I always try to do.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        We missed something here.

        • Havok9120

          It was a doozy. Pretty rambling, even for him.

  • trr

    hate Fox, hate their announcers

  • vicki

    all the buck and mccarver you can eat. yay.

  • Evan3457

    Thanks a lot MLB. Way to ruin almost every Yankees-Red Sox series with the Fox-ESPN double homicide.

    • …They’re Yoouukk-ing Him

      +1

  • Jamey

    FOX knows what year it is, right?

  • free speech

    I guess free speech is dead.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Pffft, this isn’t public grounds. It’s a privately owned and operated site.

      • free speech

        THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY COMMENTS! NUNEZ IS GREAT!

  • free speech

    He really gets upset when you say nunez is good!

  • P

    I like the 7pm Saturday games. My wife works on Saturday nights, kids asleep by 8, beer open by 8:01, feet up, game on.

  • Dropped Third

    Three words…. Fucking Joe Buck

  • …They’re Yoouukk-ing Him

    You know, these games would at least be half tolerable if we got some Kenny Albert or Thom Brennaman thrown in there but seeing as we’re likely to get a full slate of Buck/McCarver, I think I’m just going to boycott those games on TV…Because Sterling/Waldman might actually be an upgrade over the insufferable Joe Buck and the unknowledgable Tim McCarver. It’s sad to see how far this duo has fallen over the years.

  • Cross777

    Why is FOX allowed to bounce all over with their start times?

    12:30, 2:30, 3:30, 7:00 – Supposed to be Saturday game of the week.

    They should all be 1:00 games.

  • Laz

    Good!

    This is good for those of us who don’t have Yes service.

  • Neil

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that MLB.tv subscribers would now be able to watch the games Fox isn’t showing in their broadcast area?

    Where I live (Central PA) that can include Phillies, O’s, Nats, and Pirates games, and quite often I don’t get the Yankees game on Fox because they show the Phillies instead. Means I’m stuck listening to John Sterling.

    I can’t stand the Fox announcers, especially Buck, but not being able to watch the game still sucks.
