Feel Free To Make Other Plans For Sunday Nights

Through July you won't have to hang around to watch the Brewers on ESPN.

Yesterday ESPN unveiled what they're calling their "star-studded 2013 Sunday Night Baseball schedule," but the stars studding it won't be Ryan Braun, Yovani Gallardo or Aramis Ramirez. The Brewers do not make a Sunday night appearance in the eleven games announced yesterday, which contains the schedule through July 21.

ESPN made a somewhat puzzling decision to open the season with a Rangers/Astros game, the first American League home game for a team that lost 107 games last year and has not significantly improved this winter. The Astros haven't played on Sunday night since 2007. This is the first of three Sunday night games for the Rangers among the first eleven broadcasts, to lead all teams.

The Angels, Yankees, Cardinals, Braves and Tigers all also make multiple appearances, while nine teams appear in exactly one game. The 2012 NL East champion Nationals, NL Central champion Reds and AL West champion A's were all left out. Here are some of the potential best Brewer games ESPN is missing out on:

  • Brewer matchups against the rival Cardinals on April 14, May 5 and 19.
  • The finale of the Brewers-Dodgers series on April 28.
  • Games in Cincinnati against the also-ignored Reds on May 12 and June 16.

So, at least through July, you've got your Sunday nights free. Plan your life accordingly.
