Comment of the Day: Seattle Sports Stars Get Screwed Because They Play While Everyone Else Is Sleeping

Does Ichiro get less love because he plays here?
Reader Keegan responds to Felix Hernandez Finishes Second in Cy Young Voting, But Here's Why He Should Have Won. They've got an interesting take on the old East Coast bias trope common to many a sports argument.

"Seattle games/teams/players rarely get any coverage nationally because their games start when most of the country is going to bed. San Fran and LA are exceptions because so many major media outlets are based in those cities. These are the people who vote for the award!

I agree, no one watches royals games, but their location in the central time zone helps get players like Greinke (much deserved) coverage."
