I never thought of the Mets as a national team, are you sure they show up a lot? The Giants use to be, is that no longer true?

Weird, first game is Nats @ Mets. I thought you said no coverage? http://www.espn.com/mlb/television Mets were picked a lot this year as was Houston.
I sure did forget the Dodgers. I was referring only to the Sunday night games which are the so-called marquee games.

Here’s the Sunday night schedule. I have no idea if the rules allow for games to be flexed like they can for football. For the Cubs, there’s local laws about the number of night games and concerts at Wrigley. I wonder if the Nats try to avoid Sunday night games because of the early Metro closing.
