I’ll pop in back & forward – as you can guess, UK tv doesn’t bother with any of the Spring Training stuff, heck even Baseball Tonight is broadcast at 5am! With sport over here being “strained” at best (lets just say Rangers FC are more like the Dodgers/Mets these days than Yankees) i could use some normal service being resumed!
