I just don't get why they don't try to expand their coverage to more teams and embrace the "national" part of the national past-time. Football is pretty well covered nationally...baseball would be well served to try the same formula. They might actually find it helps revenues when the "casual" fan finds new players in different markets to follow. If you think about it, almost every team has at least one star player (or up-and-coming prospect) to rally behind. Make that a jumping off point and get the fans to notice. Hell, some of these small-market teams are actually doing pretty well...often better than the big boys. Show some Rays games. Throw on the Reds once in a while. The Indians have the best record...maybe they should get some coverage at times other than Red Sox and Yankee visits. It might actually serve the networks well to acknowledge the fact that there are 28 more teams that routinely go un-noticed. And if those teams are winning (like the Indians), it's inexcusable to ignore them.
