Thanks, Mr. Angelos!
Offdays are bad enough. But once again, in lieu of a game, MASN went with Orioles Classics tonight. Oh yes, it's April 6, 1992 again, and the opening of brand-spanking-new Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Chris Hoiles. Mullets. Joe Orsulak. Grunge. Rick Sutcliffe on the mound for the O's. Jon Miller doing play-by-play. And of course: ESPNNews all night on MASN2. Welcome to NatsTown.
We can be reasonable and accept using O's Classics as a lead-in to tonight's 10:05 Orioles-Giants game on the West Coast. But would it kill MASN to throw Nats fans a bone every now and then and air, say, one of the many Zimmerman walkoffs (take your pick) on MASN2 when the Nationals have a day off? Or, better yet: maybe show Strasburg's debut again? And again. And again. MASN suits might want to consider putting that one on tape loop.
What's a Nationals fan gotta do to get some love, Mr. Angelos (psssst...check your ratings!)?
Surprise! Stephen Strasburg named NL Player of the Week.
