And they could take a tip from FOX by showing regional games instead of the Yankees and Red Sox every week.

Wow - what a real barn-burning, important game to put on national television- the last place Yankees playing the even worse, last place Mariners.

Thank God ESPN at least had enough sense this time around to show the Angels @ White Sox game later on.

It was blacked out here in NY, but during the early part of the season, for some reason the PQ seemed subpar, but I think it's my provider ( Cablevision NY) because everyone else in the country says the PQ is great.

C'mon now, let's be fair to TBS in this case.

Like the Yankees, seattle was supposed to be a very good team this year. So when TBS elected to televise this game, on paper it seems like a terrific match up.
Nobody could have predicted seattle would have the worst record going int the game.
And the game turned out to be a very fun game.

Here is the upcoming schedule via the TBS webpage:

Sunday, June 1
1:30/12:30c - Florida at Philadelphia

Sunday, June 8
1:30/12:30c - Philadelphia at Atlanta

For you maybe. Personally, there were plenty of other games I'd have chosen to watch over that one.

I'd imagine the majority of non-NY and Seattle fans would rather be watching a game that actually affects their team's standings, like myself. That's why I brought up the suggestion of regional games.

I understand what you are saying, but I think TBS is going a fine job and the fact that baseball fans have another option on cable is a very positive sign.
Maybe someday TBS will begin to air "regional games". Time will tell.
For now, we can't fault them for the schedule they prepared before the season started. It's not a fair criticism.

Regional games are not feasible for TBS. The Sunday games are part of their agreement to get the playoffs and since they are not even exclusive games, I doubt they get great ratings. Split that into three games and you increase the costs and probably dont increase the revenue that much.

Fox is a broadcast network and has over 200 affiliates.

TBS has just one feed. OK maybe two if they have separate East and west coast feeds.

Are we even 100% sure that they don't reserve the right to change these games if they wanted to, or under certain circumstances (not that they would anyway)?

i found it funny that espn showed highlights of the stl/bos game from nesn and not tbs. thought it would've been somewhere in espn's mlb contract to show the tbs highlights when possible

after last year's All-Star Game incident, ESPN and TBS may not be the best of buddies, certainly not near the relationship they have with NESN.

You mean the reds were even worse than they are in those pictures? Must've been really bad, then.

Today's game looks amazing. This has got to be the best looking HD sporting event that I've ever seen.

Here in NY via Cablevision, every game I've seen on TBS this year looks subpar and blotchy. This obviously must be a local issue since everyone else around the country says the picture looks great
