An Open Letter To NESN & NOG

Enough with the "Second Base Cup" idiocy. Try actually televising some Spring Training games! As we New Englanders crawl out from our igloos this Saturday, many of us assumed we could watch the first Grapefruit League action of the year—the fun games between the Sox and B.C. and Northeastern.

Wrong, Pine Tar breath! NESN and the NOG are more interested in bringing us college basketball instead—so if you want to follow today's games you have to tune in to the weak-signalled WRKO AM radio! No television! In fact, NESN will only televise a small sample of Spring Training games this year. And the NOG claims to understand the passion of the Nation? Nice try.

For those of you starved for baseball action, you can tune in the MLB Network and watch the Yankees play the Phillies at 1PM. Nice going, NOG!
