More on the 2007 schedule - whining about lack of national TV for PETCO

My copy of the schedule has start times for home games.  None of the Saturday games are day games and none of the Sunday games are evening games.  That means NO major national coverage at home for the Padres as we battle for the three-peat.  I can't believe we are really a small market team that hosts no national tv in our home ballpark until October (then we had two mid-week day games last year!?!?!).  Or can they change the start times for regular season games like football does based on standings and predicted tv ratings?

There's two weekend series with LA which is a plus.  Other interesting home weekend series are StL (11-13 May), BOS (22-24 June), and possibly the HOU series (17-19 August) if we get a Clemens start.  No disrespect to MIL, SEA, ATL, PHI and the divisional opponents but I understand why they aren't national tv.  At least we'll be on TBS during that ATL series so our friends in distant cities can see PETCO on their local cable.
