The thing that bothers me about it is that the money also comes from people who subscribe to cable and have zero interest in baseball. I'm sure nobody reading RedsZone minds, because everyone here likes baseball. I do too.
Me, I mind my cable dollars going to NFL football. Couldn't care less about the NFL. I wouldn't walk across the street to watch an NFL game for free. I do feel sorry for the people who subscribe to cable and feel that way about MLB.
