Sin_City_Superhero: That said, I do wish someone would tell ESPN that there are other teams that play baseball, besides the Yankees and Red Sox.


I wouldn't call anything the Sox did this year "playing baseball".

Sin_City_Superhero: As a West-coaster, it makes perfecty sense that there would be more attention paid to the East coast than the West. More teams in the East. Just sayin'

Well, there's the geographical definition of "Eastern US," which your maps amply prove, and the ESPN definition of "Eastern US," which is a roughly 15-mile-wide corridor along I-95 between Boston and Philadelphia, occasionally stretching down to Washington during years when the Foreskins aren't totally hapless. The former is merely an effect of the population distribution of the US' population; the latter is what irritates everyone outside of Mega City One.
