Fans love to charge commentators with being biased against their team. Being far and away the most popular source of nation-wide sports coverage, commentary and analysis, ESPN probably fields more such complaints than any other outlet. But I've never heard a prominent commentator himself remark on the leanings of the self-declared "worldwide leader in sports". Until today.
Discussing the controversial fourth ball call that gave Nick Green first base and pushed the tying run across the plate in last night's Fenway thriller, Mike Greenberg said at the top of the the Mike and Mike in the Morning show today, "I have yet to meet anyone in this building who thinks that was a ball. And this building is full of Red Sox fans. Half of ESPN roots for the Red Sox."
Thank you Mr. Greenberg, for confirming what we Yankee fans suspected all along.
