EAST VS. WEST: In Boston, Bob Ryan addressed the start times for NLCS and World Series games on Fox this season being moved to 7:57pm ET. Ryan: "For decades upon decades, people from the East Coast have made all the viewing sacrifices. Those West Coast dilettantes haven't been asked to make any. It's time those pampered PDT/PSTers had to live with World Series, baseball playoffs, NBA Finals, and Final Four starting times that either a) prevent normal working people from seeing the finish of games or b) preclude the youth of America from watching these games at all. That's the reality of life on the East Coast" (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/24).
