  1. my concern is there are not enough astros games on sunday night baseball, guess young talent (Wallace, Sanchez, and johnson not 2 mention myers and happ pitching are one of the reasons the astros should be awarded a couple of games on sunday night baseball.

  2. Several times ESPN has ruined for me what should have been a pleasant Sunday *afternoon* at the ballpark…

  3. Please confirm starting time of game on Sunday Sept. 5th and the teams who will be featured. Thanks. Tom Ryan

  4. Why are there so many National league games over the American it is realy lopsided

  5. Please confirm both the teams and start time for 6/13/10. Thanks in advance for your expedited response.

  6. For God’s sake, is this the New York Yankees and Mets network? Six out of the 1st 8 weeks we get one of these two teams? Guess what ESPN there are a wholle bunch of us out here not watching. There are a whole lot of good baseball outside of New York and Massachusetts. This is the worst schedule I have ever seen.
