Citing declining sales, the CBC has pulled out as a carrier of Toronto Blue Jays telecasts.

Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports, said yesterday a drop in revenue, coupled with the cost of TV rights, knocked the Jays out of the box


I wonder how many over the air MLB broadcasts might also be effected in the US by drop in revenue ( car/truck ads ) ?

Will local channels only broadcast the min number of games per their contract ?

I didn't even know CBC had Jays games in 2008 or prior. I thought they were only on Rogers Sportsnet (Jays TV).
