Full disclosure: The hardworking staff has been a Made Yankee Fan in Boston for over 40 years. And for almost all of them, we’ve contended that people here are not baseball fans.
They’re Red Sox fans.
It’s 11:50 Friday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets are locked in a 1-0 NLDS nail biter, and no Boston radio station is broadcasting the game.
The one that should be – WEEI, the local ESPN radio station – has some lame Patriots palaver on the air right now.
(To be sure graf goes here)
To be sure, you could listen to the game on WEEI’s website.
But seriously, no local radio gamecast?
This is one crappy baseball town.
Are we being quick to judge and
a bit harsh?
All due respect, 40 years is not exactly quick to judge.
All due respect.
Not on MLB.com?
The web doesn’t count. Terrestrial radio does.
It’s not just baseball. Colin Cowherd made this same point a few years ago.
It’s not that we’re not a baseball town. It’s just that we are better than everyone else.
