Too many meaningless score alerts

10:29 PM ET
Memo to ESPN: Enough with breaking in with these "Score Alerts" on the Bottom Line scroll when there hasn't been an actual change in scores. I've seen quite a few "Alerts" or "Updates" in the ALCS between the the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the New York Yankees of the Bronx in the past 10-15 minutes or so, and the dang score hasn't changed one iota!
Seriously, it's annoying as crud. Especially when it's a game you're trying to follow, but can't switch channels for some reason.
And if there are multiple sports going on, how about differentiating if it's a football score or a baseball score or what not? Sure, you do it on the regular scroll, but not with the break-in "alerts" twice as annoying as crud.
