So Dick Stockton is full time now with Fox Sports and is done with Turner Sports?

@Sa9273 wow, so FS1 is gonna be lazy enough to just straight-up simulcast one team's telecast? It would really kill them that much to send a crew out to the game? It's not like they're covering 5 games a week or anything. It's the one day a week that they have baseball, and they won't spend the money on putting two national crews out in the field? Are Steve and Bob going to be forced to be a little more neutral, or will the broadcast be a standard D-Backs-biased broadcast?


Are we going to be seeing Joe Buck and Harold Reynolds at all on FS1 for the rest of the regular season, or are they only going to be going the games on the Fox network in addition to the playoffs on FS1?

FS1 deserves better; they're putting forth a good effort with their baseball coverage. Seems like half of the people I talk to, however, still have no idea what FS1 is or where to find it.

Fox is not sending Joe Buck and company to Red Sox/Yankees? What is the world coming to?

I really think they should have run a ticker every so many minutes just to quickly remind people that the unbiased broadcast is on TBS. I also agree with the other suggestion that the title of the show in the program guide should have emphasized that the TNT and TruTV feeds were biased Teamcasts.

@GregMolumby We're living in an era where almost all playoff sports are moving to cable. Basically the entirety of the MLB and NBA playoffs are now on cable except for their championship series, and NCAA football's championship as well as part of the NHL's Stanley Cup Final are also on cable.


Aside from the NFL, there's no longer an expectation to find any other sport's critical games on broadcast TV. We're in a cable sports world now.

@tylerarnold23 While CBS and TBS are contractual partners in the NCAA tournament coverage, they're not owned by the same company. Turner (TBS) paid CBS for the rights to these Final Four games because they want to make a profit off the biggest day of the year in college basketball, and they hope to draw a big audience by going all-out on their coverage of the event.

I like it overall, but I think the home run graphic is dull and not really inspiring. In the previous package and in all other networks' packages, they always have a lot of exciting animation in the graphic that appears for home runs in baseball, touchdowns in football, and goals in hockey. This new home run graphic just sits there on screen and doesn't animate or anything. The old graphic conveyed the attitude of, "WOOO! HOME RUN! GO WILD! :D ". The new graphic is like "Home run. Yeah, whatever. -_- ".

@Baseballisbest Yeah, it's pretty bad when it's opening week of MLB, and all ESPN wants to talk about is 60% NFL (a sport that's not in season) and 20% NBA. They give maybe 15% of the time to MLB and the remaining 5% to sports that they completely disrespect like hockey.

CBS does indeed seem like the smart choice. He could get a spot in the SEC football show right away, and like you said, he could rise to prominence if he does wind up getting Verne's job after he retires.
