    SI: Game 3 could get earliest World Series start time in 23 years

    Glad to see this close to happening.

    Major League Baseball and Fox are close to finalizing the earliest start time to a World Series game in 23 years. First pitch for World Series Game 3 this year, hosted by the American League champion, would be scheduled for approximately 6:55 p.m. Eastern time, according to baseball sources -- an hour earlier than Game 3 last season and more than 100 minutes earlier from as recently as 2007.

    What time are the weekday games starting? Saturday night doesn't faze me. I can stay up then to watch a game but on the weekday nights I can't. If they start at 7 pm on weekdays that would great but I'm doubting that they don't start before 8:30 pm.

    The rest are supposed to start just before 8 PM eastern time with one exception. I think the game that is on Sunday night after Fox's NFL coverage is scheduled to start around 8:20. It is a good idea to move the start times up but usually Fox does such a long pregame the games never start close to when they are scheduled to start.

    I can go to work with only an hour or 2 of sleep. I mean they are just pilots... I'm fine with either start time. However, I want all the games to last 4 hours plus.
