Seems like the A's haven't been on Fox Sports Net or ESPN in awhile. All the games have been on local TV only? What's the deal? Us out of the area fans are getting screwed.

Nevermind, I see some more FSN games on the schedule. Just seems like less then there used to be. I wonder if it's due to low ratings.

Both teams here in the bay area have struggled ratings wise.

The SFG are barely drawing half of what they used to the last few years and the A's? Well, let's say that they're doing better than the W's and Sharks have done the past few years.

That's good info, Oaktownfan. Is there a Web link where do you get the TV ratings for both teams?

No, I don't know if it's online but the ratings for the most popular bay area viewship is printed in the trib weekly I think on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

So far, SF has average in the high 200k/low 300ks when they would routinely average high 400k/low 500ks. Guess there is a Bonds effect there.

The A's I haven't seen in list which ranks the top 5 during the week. The times I've seen the A's, they were drawing a little less than 100k.
