I live in central Florida, have bright house and get the Marlins on FSN. Of course FSN has a rotation between the MArlins and Stink Rays, but I get 100+ Marlins games a year. I just don't get the games on PAX.

You live in Baseball City which is in the Tampa Bay market for Bright House. The Orlando market is the one without FSN on Bright House.

Don't the Devil Rays have the Orlando market? I know Pax in O-town shows Rays games. Can they pick up Marlins games?

Yes, WRBW UPN 65 last carried Marlins games in Orlando and that was in 1998. The Devil Rays started play in 1998.

Response from WRDQ:

It's not quite as simple as that. When we pick up games, we displace other programs that we have contractual obligations to. Even if the games are free, the Marlins (I'm sure) put in their own advertising. They probably leave a very limited amount for the station. This would end up causing a loss of revenue for us. These kinds of things have to be negotiated with the team so that you don't loose a truckload of revenue because of the team consuming all of the advertising time in the game. Thank you e-mail though, we always evaluate opportunities like this when they arise for the station.

I will get in contact with the Marlins and see what I can do here.

I got this back from WRDQ.

Mr. Martin,

 

Thank you for taking the time to e-mail you thoughts. We keep our eyes open for opportunities such as picking up professional sports. If such an opportunity is made available to us, we would definitely consider it.

I also saw this in the email they sent me. I thought it was pretty funny.
