Orioles/Nats game not on MASN (O's Lose 5-3)

Recommended Posts

I know it is a spring game, and the Nationals are not thrilled with MASN, but anyone else find it weird today's game is not being televised?  Seems like you'd get O's and Nats fans tuning in or DVRing, though maybe I just answered my own question.

I thought it was weird, too. But MASN is terrible about televising spring games. What do they do, 6 games for the O's? That's pathetic. 

You would think you'd want one of them to be against the WS winners.

yeah, but as I was asking it, I kind of thought that if you will probably get more viewers over separate games than the two playing in the same game.  Still kind of surprised.

Guess the expenses of airing a preseason game, doesn't generate enough revenue to offset the costs to air.

That's all it can be, really.  Nothing else makes sense.  They own the friggin network - you'd think they'd be televising every game, or at least a couple a week and especially weekends.

This afternoon MASN was broadcasting Heartland Poker Tour and World Class Championship Boxing. A half step up over simulcast of ESPN News, but not compelling television in the slightest. They have to fly crew down to Florida to show any games, I don't see why they can broadcast more besides the expense of it.

Just for a gauge of what other teams do, I checked:

YES Network is showing 12 Yankee spring training games this year

NESN is showing 14 Red Sox spring training games this year.

MASN is showing 7 Oriole spring training games this year.

MASN is showing 7 Nats spring training games this year.

Sportsnet is showing 10 Blue Jays spring training games this year.

Fox Sports Sun is showing 11 Rays spring training games this year.

The broadcasters are already down there, I mean half of Orioles analysts are guest instructors and the annoying analyst FP for Nationals has nothing else in his life.  TV truck is probably down there since the games are sporadic.  Again, I just figure why show not both teams, if not for the fact that they'd rather show them playing different teams.
