At least someone announced the final results of the vote
If you had some news you’d like to bury, Tuesday night was the perfect night to leave it. NASA announced that it could discover the shape of wolf trucks on the surface of Neptune and would have gone completely unnoticed.
And yet, at 8 pm ET, voting stopped in 17 states, Tonight baseballThe Gold Glove announcement show was just beginning.
Cardinals pitcher Jack Fleharty was among those who thought it was a bit strange.
There is possibly a reasonable explanation for why the show was scheduled for Election Day. For example, ESPN could not air the announcement in prime time on Monday or Wednesday due to live football obligations. Perhaps the network wanted to broadcast something at 8 pm on Tuesday and found that the award show was good counter-programming for election coverage.
In the past two years, Gold Glove winners were announced on Sunday at 7 pm. This is a great time to do it. It comes in between the window when late-afternoon NFL games are wrapped up and when Sunday-night games begin. In 2017 and 2016, the announcement was made on Tuesday and yes, 2016 was also announced on Election Day.
It is tempting to lure it as an example of MLB being out of touch, but are the award announcements really the kind of thing people first notice? If the Gold winners have occupied an important position in the news cycle, will the winners be announced a week before now? Probably right there. It is only funny that either MLB, Rawlings or ESPN decided to run it on an all-night election night.
The big MLB Awards – Rookies of the Year, Managers of the Year, MVP and Cy Young – are scheduled to be announced next week. It is expected that the decision of the Supreme Court on the election will not coincide.
