I wouldn't be shocked if they do this because MLB has a commissioner that actually dislikes baseball.Reusse and Rand discussed the Twins/BSN issue on the Strib podcast this week. One downstream impact I had not thought of if MLB takes control of the inventory is whether or not this will alter each team having their own Broadcast production including the announcers.
I would think it would cut such costs nearly in half. I don't know if it really drives ratings one way or another to have their dedicated crew.
They mentioned that MLS does this currently, same broadcast goes out to the Home and Away market.
It would be a big mistake to go this route IMO.
