The Yankees-O's game on ESPN Sunday night was watched in 1.5 percent of American homes, and 8.3 percent of households in the Baltimore market, according to overnight ratings provided by the sports cable channel.

By comparison, the Ravens-Lions game last December on ESPN drew an audience almost five times as large and was seen in 40.2 percent of Baltimore homes.

Maybe it's unfair to compare baseball and football given the number of games in a season, but I think ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball has become almost unwatchable -- or, at least, unlistenable with Dan Shulman and John Kruk in the booth.
