Tigers' start time changed on Friday
to 4:30 Eastern (meaning those of us on the West Coast are SOL).

Sigh.

1. There's a chance of SNOW in Detroit -- that's the reason for the change
From the AP: "Major League Baseball said Thursday that concerns about the weather Friday night in Detroit prompted the switch from the original start time of 8:19 p.m. The Tigers took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series Wednesday night, winning in Oakland 8-5."

2. And, coincidentally, then they can put the Mets on prime time
Of course, if MLB had heeded my thoughts and eliminated 5 games from the regular season when they added a round of playoffs, then weather would be less of a factor.

3. Yes, of course. Works out for Fox quite nicely.
The good news is that I work at home, so I can still watch the A's. Or is that the bad news???

4. MLB needs more double headers to shorten the calendar.
It's absurd to play the games in 90+ temperatures then the playoffs with threatening snow.

I LOVE the cold, but I appreciate that the cold changes the game for pitchers and hitters.
