World Series Games to Start Much Earlier

2010_world_series_logoThis will look sooo nice on a Phillies jersey

ZOMG! World Series games while you’re actually up.

MLB announced today that most World Series games would start at 7:57PM, approx 30 minutes earlier than last year’s games.  The exceptions are Game 3, which will start at 6:57 PM- the earliest start time since 1987- and Game 4, which will start when FOX's NFL coverage concludes around 8:20.

This move was made to appease fans who complained the late finishes (that’s what she said). 

I actually enjoyed the “deep into the night” thing, it added a layer of drama to the games in a weird way.  But it didn't make for the best of mornings.

Here’s the full schedule, courtesy of FanHouse.  I will now go back to counting all of these unhatched eggs.

Game 1: AL Champion at NL Champion FOX 7:57 (7:30) Oct. 27

Game 2: AL Champion at NL Champion FOX 7:57 (7:30) Oct. 28

Game 3: NL Champion at AL Champion FOX 6:57 (6:30) Oct. 30

Game 4: NL Champion at AL Champion FOX 8:20 (8) Nov. 31

Game 5: NL Champion at AL Champion, if necessary FOX 7:57 (7:30) Nov. 1

Game 6: AL Champion at NL Champion, if necessary FOX 7:57 (7:30) Nov. 3

Game 7: AL Champion at NL Champion, if necessary FOX 7:57 (7:30) 4

  1. Dates are off…need to be moved a line down

  2. Can you fix it so it’s not on Fox?

  3. The NL won the allstar game, so the NL has home field advantage. I think…

  4. Sherry, what’s worse is that the NLCS is also on Fox (TBS gets the ALCS). I can’t stand the Philly-hating duo of Buck+McCarver either. At least the entire NL and AL Div Series are on TBS:
