    Jeez, all Yankees and Cubs. Been waiting for Astros highlights for close to 30 mins now!

    We'd have to 3peat just to get our name in the paper at this point. Best thing to do is keep winning and ram it down their throats.

    Next series if we can finish off Boston will be epic.

    Best AlCS since BOS/NY upcoming.

    Was hoping NYY could make it a series yesterday to put some doubt in Cleveland.

    I was going to say the same thing. I turned it on at 8:02 and they were in the middle of Yankees highlights. They must have led off with the Astros and done a super quick recap because they’ve gone through preseason basketball and Cam Newton and have still yet to mention our game.

    Tribe/Yankees game had a controversial hbp followed by a grand slam and finished with an extra innings walk off; Cubs/Nats was a pitchers duel so both games had a storyline to promote. Astros/Red Sox was straight rape...I’m not surprised the networks didn’t want to promote sodomy.

    And don’t expect any coverage Sunday either cuz Fister is gonna get fisted.

    Altuve's monster 3 HR game barely got any press either. Can you imagine what would happen if Judge did that?? Whatever, in the words of the great Hank Conger, "f*** em!!"

    There’s courtesy coverage and then there’s flat-out nonexistent coverage.

    Both networks decided not to mention the series at all. I didn’t expect them to get lead coverage, but no coverage? It’s a little slap in faceish.

    I can even somewhat understand ESPN..... they're douches, but they're East Coast douches covering all sports. They want to put the heavy hitters on top, and appeal to the masses. But MLBN?? That's an absolute travesty. There are literally 8 teams they can be talking about right now, and they have 24 hours to do it. To not give us ANY coverage (and when they do, it's Red Sox centric) is an insult, and downright pathetic. **** them.

    To be fair, the yankees/indians was a lot more exciting to the national audience.

    I'm wondering why you are waiting when highlights are available in demand. Don't wait bro, watch on your time and go about your day.

    I recorded two different versions of SC on Sunday afternoon and night. Completely left out the Texans/Titans game. Didn't even show the score.

    How many years does this have to go one before some of y'all will stop worrying about the (lack of) national coverage when it comes to Houston teams? You'll live a much more peaceful life when you just let it go. In the grand scheme of things, it's near the bottom on the list of things that actually mean anything.

    It's important to feel victimized.

    It's frustrating that all Astros content is censored from the entire internet. I blame the PRC.

    I'm more annoyed with the fact that Houston always get stuck with the early day games first round of the playoffs.

    The way things have gone so far, we should all be thrilled with their start times.

    That's not at all suprising to me.... they're going to fall behind the Dodgers, Yankees, Cubs no matter what.

    Sucks that those are the other 3 series, but as long as the Astros keep on winning, they'll get their marquee games.
