MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki is likely gonna get a ton of heat on Twitter. Zolecki happens to be the bearer of bad news when it comes to the start times for the NLDS.
A word of advice, take the day off Phillies fans!
The Phillies and Atlanta Braves will meet at 1:07 PM/Eastern on Tuesday. The game will be televised on Fox. Yup, clear your afternoon.
Game 2 is slated to start at 4:35 PM on Wednesday and will also be televised on Fox. While not as bad as Game 1, a late afternoon start isn’t ideal for the general TV viewer.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees will demand prime time TV spots.
