    Does Disney have exclusive rights for Sunday night baseball or something??


    The past 2 sundays the Braves were the Sunday night game and it ( Disney sports ch ) was the only telecast. No local fox sports broadcast..


    But tonight (Monday night baseball ), the game is on all 3 networks... Disney , SNY- mets , and CSN philly- Phillies
    ..

    Why must we be forced to watch or listen to horiable Mickey mouse sports?

    It is my understanding that:
    Sunday night is exclusive to ESPN.
    Monday night is on ESPN but is not exclusive and local channels can show the game.
    Wednesday night is on ESPN, not exclusive and local channels can show the game.

    Yep, Sunday Night Baseball is exclusive to ESPN and its been that way for several decades at this point, long before "Mickey Mouse" owned the channel.

    Monday and Wednesday are non-exclusive, so ESPN is subject to blackout those nights at the discretion of the local RSN. i.e. Tonight's and Wednesday's ESPN games are blacked out in Phillies territory, but not in Mets territory, even though SNY is also showing the game.

    Way back in the day, It was ABC with Monday Night Baseball, no games could be shown till the Monday game was over.....So bottom line MLB has had many strange rules through the years...
