It has placed a movie ad in the May schedule of every single team (four random teams: Red Sox, Yankees, Pirates, Brewers). Is MLB that hard up for cash?
And, as Jere, points out, MLB has changed the color of the day to make the ad more visible -- which means it has designated home games as road games. So while the Boston is still playing May 22 at Fenway Park, MLB's official schedule now indicates the Red Sox are playing in Kansas City.
They care more about making money than they do about telling you the key piece of information about one of the games.When will MLB do something -- anything -- that will make me say, "Yes, MLB did the right thing."
Also: The Blue Jays broadcasts -- which I watched for the recent Red Sox series -- now have short car commercials in between batters. Batter X grounds out and before Batter Y steps in, the screen goes white and here comes the fucking commercial.
