The Yankees had a workout in Anaheim today. The Yankees are in the middle of the ALCS.

The YES Network exists to cover the Yankees. The YES Network has its on-air personnel in Anaheim for Game 5.

So it would be a natural for the network to offer a one-hour ALCS special at 7  tonight, before the NLCS game starts on TBS.

Wouldn't it?

Newsday is reporting from the workout. So is ESPN. So is . . . SNY!

But no. Instead, YES will show a replay of Saturday's USC-Notre Dame game at 7.

Its only coverage today of the Yankees' biggest series in five years will come via its simulcast of Mike Francesa's radio show, which is on when many people are at work.

Strange.
