The Plight Of Transplanted Baseball Fans
Jeff Passan has a column on Yahoo! Sports about how transplanted baseball fans around the country are screwed over by MLB's blackout restrictions. He brings up all the ridiculous rules that prevent baseball fans from seeing their favorite team's games on television.

It's a must-read for all transplanted baseball fans. Check out the territorial map too!
