Just some ultimate Irony for folks here in Wilmington

Did ya'll know that MLB considers Wilmington part of the market for the Nationals and Orioles?? If you dont believe me try getting games on MLB.TV service. It blacks the Orioles and Nationals games out but the Braves who are technically a closer drive are not. I dont know how in the world teams 7-8hrs drive away are considered part of this market but its true so I guess in MLBs eyes ya'll should be rooting to get either the Nationals or Orioles farm team moved to Wilmington. (Major Sarcasm intended). I dont know if the MLB package on TWC blacks them out (I would assume so). So thanks to MLB I cant watch any games involving those teams at all unless I have DirecTV since they are the only provider which offers the Mid Atlantic Sports Networks.. Seems stupid to me across the board MLB thinks this makes sense. I actually do hope Wilmington is able to get the Hillcats (not sure what they would be called down here in Wilmington) from Lynchburg the natural rivalry with Myrtle Beach would be great since the Hillcats currently have a local rival in Salem VA within a similar drive.
