On its "replay" of today's spring training Pirates-Yankees game tonight from 9P-11:30PM, the YES Network DELETED MARIANO RIVERA'S ENTIRE APPEARANCE IN THE TOP OF THE 6th inning. As I've detailed on this blog and in letters to so-called YES Network officials, they go to great lengths to avoid acknowledging Rivera's existence. Tonight, after not editing but eliminating his entire appearance, they gave 1 second of video of him throwing in the bullpen. (Often he gets less than 1 second). Michael Kay's audio over the small snapshot simply said Rivera was throwing in the bullpen because he only threw 6 pitches from the mound in his top of the 6th frame--gave no other re-cap, who the batters were, where the balls were aimed, overall progress, etc. NOTHING.
- SINCE THIS TREATMENT IS BLATANT AND ON-GOING FOR QUITE SOME TIME, WHEN IS SOMEONE GOING TO ADMIT THE YES NETWORK IS A FRAUD, POORLY MANAGED, AND HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY ESPN BASEBALL BULLIES AND POLITICIANS? WHY ARE THE YANKEES SO WEAK ABOUT RIVERA?
