    Bent on making the overall concept of the score graphic work, they have inverted the color scheme in hopes that it will improve visibility of the base and out indicators.

    I don't know for a fact, but it'll likely a rotation of the CLTV guys, Hamernik, Janssen, and McGill. Paul might come in early a few times, too.

    Joe Donlon did a Facebook Live with Ben and Lourdes, and some interesting stuff came out. He would've debuted sooner, but there were some contractual hiccups in Portland. Also, we all gave a second glance to the fact that both he and Suppelsa are Marquette grads, and close in age. It turns out that they do know each other quite well, and Mark got the ball rolling on his hiring. Joe called Mark to congratulate him on his retirement, and Mark mentioned that they were still looking for a replacement, so it all came together by chance. Also confirmed is his shift. Nothing changes, so he and Micah will still helm the 5, 6, 9 and 10.

    Also, Donlon speaks fluent Spanish, and wants in on one of the telenovelas. They also schooled him on 'Skilling Time', and how valuable it is.

    Two notes for WGN Sports...

    1) Apparently "Tuesday Night Baseball" is a new ad campaign. They apparently have Cubs or White Sox games scheduled for most Tuesdays throughout the season.

    2) They have made some improvements to the graphics package and have bolded the statistics to help them stand out better.

    First time in like 15 years that WGN has (unintentionally) had graphics to match the Sox color scheme...if only for one night. :D

    I can't believe they decided to make the score graphic even smaller. IMG_20180420_204722910.jpg

    Is it in the overscan area, or is it really up against the top of the screen? I'm at a restaurant with 2 different TVs. It's up against the edge on one, and half cut off on the other. They should've stuck with the 3rd version of it (the 1st recoloring).

    Agreed. This one seems like a bad idea.

    They want to make sure that nobody knows how many runners are on base.

    Was this the first time Sean Lewis has filled in for Larry or Dan?

    He filled in frequently pre-Ponce, and on some holidays, but I'd say it's been awhile. Marcus filling in for Dan is the other surprise.

    I mentioned pages ago on this thread that Marcus filled in for Dan on Thanksgiving morning because the latter was doing the parade.
