Trust me...MLB rules are completely different than any other sport. Currently, Cox owns the rights for the Padres in Tucson. You cannot see any Padres games in Tucson with DirecTV or with MLB.TV. I'm just wondering if, because Cox owns the rights, do they allow the MLB EI games to be broadcast here.
I come from the home of MLB blackouts and proof that the rule is not 100 miles. In Las Vegas, the Giants, A's, Padres, Angels, Dodgers and Diamondbacks were all considered "In-Market". Because of this, all games involving those teams were blacked out on MLB-EI and MLB.TV. The only games we really got to see were the Dodgers and Angels on Fox Sports net and about 30 Diamondbacks games on a local independant channel.
I don't really care that much for the Padres...I'm a huge Giant's fan and guess who they open the season with???
