    Default Dodgers at Cubs starting time

    8:30 central - WTF? I could understand if it was on the west coast, but this is ridiculous. I have to go to work tomorrow, but I desperately want to see the Cubs lose. What am I to do?
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    Yeah, but a 7 or 7:30 central starting time would suit them just fine. The people actually attending the game are the ones I'm thinking of. It could be 12:30 before they get home.

    I do realize there was pretty much no other way to do it, with the Phillies-Brewers before it (and on the same network).

    People who were lucky enough (or rich enough) to get tickets to this game most likely took tomorrow off. I was stuck in traffic with them. None of them seemed to mind.

    What about the kids who have to go to school tomorrow?
    I was never a bigger baseball then when I was a kid. I know some of the post season used to start at a time when it was reasonable for me to watch the whole game.
    For years I have seen sportswriters moaning about how baseball is sacrificing the future in order to get the biggest advertising dollars today and I whole heartedly agree.
