How many of Trout's fans are not Angels' fans? Will any Twins' fans ever follow White Sox' players?
Trout fans? I’d say quite a lot of baseball fans follow him, and I say that based solely on the comments here from people.
White Sox? I do, occasionally. I live in Chicago, and we play them a lot. I want to know local sports and I want to know who the Twins are up against. Now, I don’t necessarily follow them the way I do Twins players, but I do follow them enough to have some idea what we will be up against now and in the near future.
And I think Bauer has it right about marketing and abut all the pay for content. Heck, you can’t watch the Cubs this year, locally, unless you subscribe to their channel. At the very least MLB should say no to that. Talk abut bad for baseball, but good for baseball owners.
