    More Cubs/White Sox on 13.3

    If you need more of a fix than WGN provides, extra Cubs and White Sox games are going to be carried on 13.3.

    I would make some smart *** comment about not needing anymore CWS games, but at this point I'd rather just watch color bars than Matt Capps blow another save this year.

    So basically all the WCIU games will now be available to Central Iowa. Interesting.

    Bunch of B.S. that the Sox's have more game then the Cubs ... of course with the way the Cubs are playing I don't know if I want to watch them anyways.

    Because a team that is 16-31 is quite an impressive filler of extra tv room.

    in future years this could come to benefit us, or at least when we stop blowing late leads

    I'm pretty sure that they are just reairing WCIU games. Don't understand how it's BS, they're probably showing as many games as they can.

    There are more Sox games than Cub games on WCIU because the Cubs still have the majority of WGN dates.

    I'm assuming you're getting at the fact that the Twins will be able to break in a ton of young guys right?

    Well, that would require the organization to hold some guys accountable and start firing/demoting/trade players which is....well...it's....don't hold your breath.

    Maybe by September call-ups...

    By the way, FDWxMan...in case you were curious, in the last two years, Joe Mauer has hit 9 HR's and Jose Bautista has hit 73. $23 million per year well spent!

    Thanks Brent. Two things:

    1. I wasn't curious.

    2. Take away Bautista's games against the Twins the past two years and he's only hit 12 home runs.

    haha i know im not getting my hopes up. once again the twins cheapskate spending ways are biting it in the ***. the AL Central is usaually weak enough that we only ever have to compete with the white sox so we can win enough times to keep this sham going. i wish our owners would pony up money for more than just joe mauer and get a big time free agent power hitter...last time i knew kubel was the team leader in HR's with 6....wtf? and last week we had the league low in runs scored as well....

    My cable back home in the boonies has FSN North, FSN Midwest, WGN, and Comcast... too bad Mediacom can't do this in Ames or anywhere for that matter.
