Because that's how MLB chose to sell the rights.

Not all teams own THEIR television station.

MLB determines television rights for postseason, I guess they let the teams use their flagship stations for radio since there isn't as much $$$$ in radio.

I dont have that impression

You said not all teams own there TV stations, giving the impression that teams owned their radio station. Well I think the Angels are the only team that owns there radio station.

EDIT: wait, now I see. You were making fun of the their-there thing. nevermind, carry on
