What We Are Missing
Here's what teams with real owners and real TV deals do: the Yankees' YES cable network will offer interactive content to viewers in July. Among the new features is a "StarCam" that "zeroes in on a particular Yankee player each inning."
If the Nats were a real organization, we'd be enjoying StarCam footage like that -- close-ups of Soriano stewing in left field, Guillen mumbling incoherently to himself after a strikeout, Guzman getting a late jump on a grounder, Robert Fick tripping a baserunner -- and interactive stats like "Innings since last Nats homer in RFK: 46.1" and "AL Notes: Brad Wilkerson has just hit his 29th home run -- most for a Ranger before the All-Star Break." I can't wait!
