Why do the Fish get fewer locally broadcast games than other teams?

 

Man, I did a post that discounted this in previous years (it might have even been in response to you!) where I linked to all the teams schedule, but I can't find it. Maybe it got lost in that server move, I don't know.

 

Our 96% of games aired is about average, some teams were actually worse, and most teams don't show all 162.

Wasnt to me, I never posed the question before. I am in Cardinals, Cubs, and White Sox territory(if I was about an hour east, would be Reds too) and those teams get pretty much every game televised. Granted, the Cubs and White Sox own part of Comcast SportsNet Chicago but thats neither here nor there.

We also get pretty much every game, that's what 96% is.

 

You mentioned the Cardinals; they are getting 150 games televised on FSN Midwest (5 less than us). The other two do have all of them.

 

The Reds are getting 145, so we're ahead of them too.

The Cardinals will have many more when national broadcasts are concerned, which the Marlins generally have very few of.

 

At most the Cardinals will have 9 on national TV, so if it stays how it is now, they will have 3 more than us. (I had forgotten we're getting all 6 Rays games, not 5 per usual.)

 

So, the difference is 96% to 98%.

Cardinals:

FOX-9

ESPN-1

FSN-152

Total: 100%

 

Cubs:

FOX-9

ESPN-1

CSN-80

WGN-64

WCIU-8

Total: 100%

 

White Sox:

FOX-7

CSN-100

WGN-30

WCIU-25

Total: 100%

 

Just validating my prior point. All of their games are on every year. This will be the first year the Cardinals arent over the air though.

I don't see that FSN is going to show 152 and saw that Fox is showing 8 with ESPN showing 1. I got all my info from MLB.com.

If you look at St. Louis' schedule on MLB.com (their official site), you will see that 100% of their games will be televised. That means that if you live in their market region, you will be able to watch every one of their games on either FS-M, ESPN, or FOX.

 

I think that's where Spike is getting his info from.

Evansville was a nice place to live. You got FSN Midwest, FSN Ohio, CSN Chicago, TBS, and WGN so you got, when ESPN and FOX was included, well over 400 games a year free and clear.

 

The Rays have 158 games this year on TV between FSN/Sun Sports and FOX. The dates open are all weekend games I believe so it looks like they are leaving themselves open for TBS or ESPN.

I must have read last year's or something, because what I'm finding now matches that.

 

Though, I still say, basing things against the Chicago teams and the Cards is kinda stacking the deck.

 

I do have to say I still think it's ridiculous that 4 of the 6 blackout games are away games.

I do think that the Marlins are behind the curve when it comes to TV coverage. As you point out, some of the non-aired games are on the road, which has some twisted logic. As I show above, at least teams like the Reds give you the opportunity to see those games if you purchase a ticket to a home game

 

I'm surprised that Florida hasn't figured out a better solution to the Marlins/Rays thing yet. There was a huge dilemma when the Nationals game into Orioles territory, but it was solved very swiftly. Both teams have owned MASN and MASN2 since 2005, I think that very few games of either team have not been aired on TV over that period.

 

I'm not hating, but something seems really backwards down there.

I have always been kind of surprised the Rays havent swung a deal with Bright House to air their games over their network. They would probably need to get it on other cable systems but Bright House is the predominant cable provider in most of the Rays territory.

I know I have never understood that. I can see, and actually think they should blackout more home games, to improve attendance, but why would you blackout ANY away games ? It costs money to set up cameras, send the announcers and other crew to an away game, so isn't it more cost effective to show all 3 of those away games ? Is it the Marlins that decide these things or the networks ?

I'm so glad they haven't. Living in Orlando, I'm so happy that I can watch the Marlins here.

One of the problems is that down here, at some points of the season, we have 6 teams on 2 channels (Rays, Marlins, Panthers, Lightning, Heat, Magic). Even then, I don't think missing 6/162 games is behind the curve, it's just the ridiculousness of having 4 away games blacked out that is weird.
