Re: Is Major League Baseball missing out?
Bud has succeeded in unifying MLB's web presence, but it will be next to impossible for him to unify its presence on Cable TV - at least not with live games. Some individual teams are making monstrous sums with their local cable deals. That, more than anything else, contributes to the revenue disparity in the game. The Yankees aren't going to give up their YES deal for the good of the league.
I think with the declining national interest and ratings slippage in MLB that it would be tough to convince cable operators to carry an MLB channel that didn't include live games.
