    They would be out of luck if they expected to watch the baseball game on ESPN now that is only in spanish. (Sunday 6:30 to 9:30)

    Yea ESPN is just trying to work a way around the WBC rights because they only have the rights to broadcast in Spanish. I admit spanish announcers calling the game were nice imo. Don't speak spanish but the way they call homeruns is with the same energy and enthusiasm as spanish soccer announcers.
