I'm curious to know if anyone around here knows how ESPN goes about selecting their Sunday night baseball game? Are they always slotted in advance or do they sometimes pick the game on a weekly basis and the game simply gets pushed back to prime time? The reason I am asking because I think we would all agree that it would be awesome to see a Sunday Night Baseball game live from PNC! How awesome would that be? A nationally televised game, the Baseball Tonight crew setup outside (or inside) the stadium, I think it would be a great way to signify on a national stage that Pittsburgh baseball is back.
Out of curiosity, when was the last time we were on national television in a game that didn't have anything to with either Strasburg's debut, Bonds homerun chase or some sort of milestone where we were merely the opponent for the actual story? Anyone have any clue?
