They showed a few highlights from the big market baseball teams and then proceeded to fill the rest of the show with nfl draft predictions and todd mcshay and mel kiper argueing with each other. They even fit in some more madden stuff and NBA playoffs predictions.
What happened to ESPN showing highlights and stats of the previous night? Are those days gone? It seems like more and more of "predictions" from their expert analysts.
All I wanted to see was the Hernandez home run, yet there was no mention of the Reds (they did mention 3 other teams that had winning home runs in the 9th) in a hour long show. It sickens me.
I can relate entirely to your experience. I've learned the only way to get anything of value from ESPN is to record about a 2 hour block of it and then scan through it on fast forward. You might actually get lucky and find a 20 second Reds snippet.
Not only is ESPN's coverage biased big-time to the traditional big market teams (seems like Boston and the Yankees are the only two teams in baseball sometimes) but they have this annoying habit of chopping up about eight different sports into little 2 minute shorts and then mixing the whole thing up into some pulverized sports cocktail.
