ARIZONA REVIEWER GIVES HIGH MARKS TO ESPN'S DRAFT COVERAGE

          ESPN, which had two sets on the floor of the Phoenix
     Civic Plaza, "scored heavily" during yesterday's MLB
     Expansion Draft, according to Jim Gintonio of the ARIZONA
     REPUBLIC.  Gintonio: "Tuesday's major league expansion draft
     was a slick and professional job, just what you would
     expect."  Gintonio: "A big part of [ESPN's] success comes
     from its light-hearted approach.  So why doesn't someone tell
     Peter Gammons to lighten up a bit? ... There's no doubting
     his knowledge, but the guy needs to act like he's having a
     little bit of fun."  Gintonio also credits Fox Sports
     Arizona, which focused on the D'Backs, with maintaining "a
     good flow" during its coverage (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 11/19).
