Well yes and no. I was referring to the channels being carried on sports tier in the L.A. markets (which is absolutely true for the operators that have picked up FS San Diego) but I wasn't thinking about blackout restrictions, so because of RSN exclusivity in those counties, you're right the games would be blacked out on sports tier.
My point, though, was about the fact FS San Diego was carried in L.A. on sports tier but forgot about the Padres' games being blacked out regionally. So the channel is carried in L.A. but you're right the games themselves aren't. Anyone that wanted to see the Padres in L.A. would need to purchase an extra innings package or MLB TV.
