I am a Dodgers fan from Albuquerque, N.M which is 450 miles from the nearest major league team. Colorado to the north and Phoenix to the west. I purchase the MLB Extra Innings package from Comcast Cable.

I look forward to coming home from a hard days work and watching the Dodgers game. It really throws a wrench in my evening when the Dodgers play the Rockies and it is blacked out.

I don't understand what MLB was thinking when they were looking at a map and said lets blackout Albuquerque from viewing all Colorado Rockies games. The Dodgers and the Rockies are both in the National League West I miss out on a lot of games.

If you have a product that people are willing to pay for you should give them the option to buy it. MLB needs to re-evaluate the blackout map, and let both Dodgers fans and Rockies fans in Albuquerque watch their team play.
