St Louis must be one of the few areas without either Time Warner or Comcast cable, because MLB Network is available on both.

I'm not sure what you are arguing....if TBS or another private network refuses to carry the game, and MLB therefore carries it on their own network, what more can they do to get the game broadcast?

Braves pitcher Alex Wood licks his fingers after almost every pitch, sometimes several times. Has 8.02a(1) been removed from the rule book? Or is he just putting his fingers up there so the umpire can't read his lips and eject him?

Well, a couple of days ago, the Detroit-Oakland game was listed as a TBS game. I just knew it was too good to be true.

Yes, I too was disappointed when I flipped over to TBS, expecting to see Detroit-Oakland, and discovered that the game was on MLB. Are there too many teams in the playoffs? You could make a case for either answer to that question, but having this many match-ups does make it tricky to get all the games onto television at convenient viewing times.

Yes

Baseball was just fine when there were two divisions in each league and two teams from each league made the post-season. There were actually pennant races.

You can thank that wretched swine Bud Selig for what a mess baseball has become.

Pretty much.

I'll never forget the 1993 NL West pennant race... the one where the Braves won 104 games and got a trip to the NLCS...

... and the Giants went home with 103 wins.

After tonight's loss the Braves last 7 playoff appearances haven't even included a NLCS trip. So much for winning divisions.

I admit to not knowing all the local cable markets. It does seem strange that here in Pittsburgh pretty much everyone with cable has MLB Network on the lowest premium tier above basic (while B1G, ESPN Classic and other sports networks require a higher premium package). So few in Pittsburgh are moaning about it unlike the rest of the country. Odd that it's not the same in across all markets.

Hopefully Oakland can win one vs Detroit finally. The teams that I root for (Yanks, Minnesota, Oakland) have a tendency to get beaten by Detroit a lot

Since 2006 the teams that I root for are 8-18 in the playoffs against Detroit. Eliminate this ALDS, and the record goes down to 6-17. It's like every team I like is predestined to automatically suck against Detroit
