The Brewers are the only AL club without a cable package (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 3/29). ....Phil Mushnick reports that former Red Sox/White Sox infielder Steve (Psycho) Lyons is "the prime candidate" to join Dave Winfield as a Fox studio analyst (N.Y POST, 3/29)....ESPN's Jon Miller says the length of games isn't a problem for most baseball fans. Miller: "You can have one three hours and 40 minutes and you're sorry it ended it was so good. You can have a game two hours and 10 minutes, and you slept through half of it. That's the nature of the game" (RICHMOND TIMES-DISPATCH, 3/28).
