The Red Sox are back in first place today and coincidentally are the FOX game of the week… unless you live on the west coast. Then you get to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on FOX instead. There are no other baseball games to watch because Fox has exclusivity on the Saturday timeslots for baseball games. Aside from the horrible radioactive mutations and their unwatchable re-imagined cartoon look (these are not the TMNT that you grew up with) that’s what wrong with the TMNT.
Generally I get to watch all the Red Sox games thanks to the MLB Extra Innings package on DirectTV, but the package doesn’t carry the exclusive FOX games. I tried out watching the game online through the mlb.com web site, but my DSL is just too slow to make watching it bearable. So I get to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles instead. Apparently it gets higher ratings for west coast fox stations than watching the first place MLB world champions.
