Sox Get One ESPN Sunday Night Baseball Game

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. After losing 93 games in 2012, the Red Sox have been relegated to cable TV also-rans, as ESPN features Boston in just one Sunday Night Baseball telecast all year. The obligatory opponent on July 21st is the Evil Empire—but at least the game is at Fenway. Not surprisingly, there are multiple appearances by San Francisco and Detroit, and, of course, The Evil Ones get two Sunday night slots—the other against the Orioles. I guess we're just not winning games in a "sexy" enough fashion—or, for that matter, not winning much at all.
