==In an interview with the Wall Street Journal (linked here), Fox Sports chief exec David Hill was asked if he was worried about having to sell the country Tampa against Milwaukee in the World Series.
“As a matter of fact, yes,” he said. “You have no idea how many times that question has been asked of me in the last three or four days. But to be in this business you have to be an optimist. … That doesn’t mean you don’t think how good the Red Sox and Dodgers in the World Series would be. But whatever it is we put the games on in the most compelling way so we can refresh the fan base every day.”
==No Dodgers-Rockies on the national TV this weekend. Fox sends L.A. the Atlanta Braves-N.Y. Mets contest (Saturday, Channel 11, 12:55 p.m.) with Howie (not Chris) Rose and Mark Grace (while 26 percent get Milwaukee-Philadelphia with someone named Tom McCarthy paired with Eric Karros and another 24 percent get Detroit-Chicago White Sox with Chris (not Howie) Rose and — surprise — recently fired “Best Damn Sports Show” sidekick Rob Dibble). On Sunday, TBS has Toronto at Boston (10:30 a.m.), while ESPN has Tigers-White Sox (5 p.m.).
