    Well, yes you can curse out ESPN for having the blackout rule.

    However, FSD and RSN are not even televising the game. So......

    Edit: ESPN just showed a highlight of the game from Rogers SportsNet.
    I had looked at their web site where the game does not appear. Sorry.

    They weren't televising it because they would not have been allowed to. the reason rogers got to is because the blackout rules are different in Canada.

    The parties at fault here are ESPN and MLB. ESPN for demanding the exclusive window, and MLB for granting it. They could have at least tried to shoehorn in exemptions for make up games, which I believe is what this game was.
