Why Can't Local Stations Cover MLB Playoff Games?

I am a Yankee fan and I always find it so calming to listen to the voices of Michael Kay, Paul O'Neil, Ken Singleton, David Cone, and John Flaherty call the game on YES Network. 

Watching these first two games on TBS has been frustrating due to the crew of announcers who call the game, and all of the dumb extra "things" that they have during the game. Do I really care that Jason Kubel had 46 hits to center field this season?

Cut this out and show the baseball game.

These announcers don't add anything to the game the way that the YES Network, and other local network announcers do.

I don't care if the games still get shown on national networks, but Yankee fans should get to watch on YES, Boston fans on NESN, Dodger fans on FSNW, Phillies fans on CSN, and Orioles fans...well, we don't have do worry about that just yet. 

It makes the game more interesting to be able to watch with announcers who know much more about the team and seem to have a closer connection with the players and coaches.

No more TBS!
