Re: Two postseason games only available on MLB Network
The NFL Network has been running games on Thursday for years despite the howls of protest from Time Warner Cable subscribers who couldn't watch the games? Why? Because the end goal was to get their network on all cable and satellite providers - as part of the regular rotation rather than as a premium channel.
I would imagine that the MLB network would like to see the same thing. And one way to exert pressure is to host some percentage of games that fans really want to see.
