View Full Version : odd links on MLB.com

As I sit in the truck watching Tampa leading Boston yet again we just noticed something on the mlb.com page that is 'interesting'

At the bottom of the page they have links to 'affilates'

and they list

Minor League Baseball
USA Baseball
Baseball Hall of Fame
SportsNet New York
YES Network

Question is why would they list the Yankees and Mets channels but no other team?

YES is Yankees SNNY is the Mets

seems odd

Sponsorships, no doubt.

Unless it's like the many fan sites out there, where affiliation consists of "you link me, and I'll link you."

I want Mags back

I find the MLS link to be really strange

MLS has a similar website and I wouldn't be surprised if their online game package is similar to MLB.tv (software wise).

And if you go to those 2 NY sites, you'll see "powered by MLB.com" at the bottom, most likely about website design
