It was hard not to notice last year that the networks had all the power when it came to scheduling the games. When did they post the Reds game times for the NLDS? Was it on Saturday for a Tuesday game ???? THese TV schedules can be scheduled in advance, such as what is done for the NLCS and the Series. (THe TV schedule can be pre-determined by the seeding, just like in the NLCS & Series)

Don Draper: Let's take it a little slower. I don't want to wake up pregnant.
