Not that I'm complaining (as I can remember the days you had to wait for the occasional game on WLWT locally), but it seems strange to do so many games and randomly not do a handful.
Wouldn't it make more sense to just say "We're broadcasting all of the Reds games this year, except these 17"
or "We're broadcasting all of the Reds games this year, except the day games played on weekdays"
We pretty much know what the gig is going to be every year by now, so this announcement means nothing. The announcement of the HD games will be something newsworthy, but even with that (and while I'm being cynical
), I think we're reaching a point where we should expect every game to be in HD. The technology ain't exactly new or a novelty anymore.
