You want to watch interleague baseball, you’re in luck, the Yankees are on….


O's are Legends

Recommended Posts

Friday game vs. Cubs was on MLB Network.

Saturday day game vs. Cubs was on FOX.

Sunday night game vs. Cubs was on ESPN.

Monday night game vs. Reds is on ESPN.

Tuesday night game vs. Reds on MLB Network.

This is followed by 2 out of 3 games vs. the Rockies on National Television. Next, 2 out of 3 games vs. Brewers on National TV. Last but not least, all 3 games of the Subway Series being broadcasted to a National Audience.

That’s 5 straight games on big time networks; a stretch of 12 of 15 games available to all.

I know how things work, Yankees bring in the most money, are the most recognizable brand worldwide as far as baseball is concerned, and thus will have the most games on National TV.

Whether it’s ESPN, MLB Network, TBS, or FOX, networks are going to make money off the Yankees.

I just wish everything didn’t always come down to money and they could show somebody else for once; especially during interleague play.

I don't get this. The two most popular teams in Baseball (top five in sports in general)...why wouldn't the network want to play those games? Yeah it would be nice if they just took made a whole let less and got a fraction of the viewers and put teams on for the love of the game, but it doesn't work that way. I mean its like a movie, theaters are going to hope to get and/or request the big ticket movies. Often times these movies aren't the best put together, or overall aren't that good, but regular movie-goers will flock to them. If you want to see a "good" movie you might have to drive to a theater farther away, or find an independent showing. It would be nice if large theaters showed better films, but that's not what sells, and I can't really complain.

Also there's a nice stretch of Cubs games on that list, why aren't we complaining about them? :)
