If there is an ALDS Game 5 for the Yankees, it will be interesting to see if FOX would give the game to ESPN. Right now, on 10/10 – when the Yankees Game 5 would be played – FOX has a 4 pm and 8 pm EST game already lined-up. The 4 pm game is SD-STL. But, that’s probably not going to be played.
Would FOX make the Yankees and Angels play a 1 pm CT game (4 pm EST) on 10/10 – after the teams have a night game in NYC the day before? Or, does FOX go for a 8 pm CT game on 10/10 – and make the NY market stay up all night with the 11 pm EST start?
FOX is probably hoping that their 8 pm EST game on 10/10 (HOU/ATL) is not needed – then they could use that slot.
It’s gong to be an interesting call. I just hope that it’s needed.
