Really: This is the third Saturday Game so far this season that has been on FOX.

With two more home games in June;


Yet FOX almost never shows the TIGERS away from Comerica! WHY?


It is really starting to piss me off!

68 degrees and sunny means I get to wear a T shirt instead of maybe a jersey or a sweatshirt if it had been a 7pm game with temps in the upper 50s by 10pm


And with temps in the upper 50s but windy and rainy on Sunday; Good chance of a rainout; then of course more road games.


Then it will be hot as a bitch when Seattle comes to town!


Thanks a lot FOX and BUD SELIG!

I am sick of them!


So far at least 6 games on Saturday at Comerica;


And there is a chance night games against Oakland, Baltimore, KC and Tampa in August and September could be switched to day games if it has a bearing on the pennant races

AND THEY SET THE TIME SO MLB.TV BLACKS OUT THE GAME! Then my local FOX does not normally show it, they show the Pirates instead! So why black it out if it isn't going to be shown nationally!!! rant

Yeah, when Rod & Mario said they would be back Sunday I was like, "oh God". It's just weird when it's on other channels Nod

I am surprised, my Fox channel had the game on, then the power to my city went out!!!

It's weird, though...any time Fox shows a Comerica game, I almost feel like I'm at an away game! The announcers are ALL about the opposing team, no matter who it is!

Though to be fair; Rod and Mario are big time homers for the Tigers during FSN telecasts.

Same with most local announcers in MLB today.


Don't make them like Ernie Harwell anymore.

That's for sure

It took a while but I see you responded to one of my posts Tigersaint!


Hope you are doing fine! Haven't posted with you much lately.


My answer to your question is you only can be so positive with this team!


Kind of hard to be happy about a 138 million dollar team playing 10 cent baseball!

At least I ain't bashing them[ like so many people on that other board]

I still believe in Tigers! But they got to start showing something on the field!


We need a 6-0 homestand!
