The Cano effect: Mariners season opener to be televised on ESPN 2

ESPN released it’s schedule of upcoming televised games for the 2014 season. And for the first time in recent memory, the Mariners will have a game televised by the four-letter.

The 2014 season opener on Monday, March 31 against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim will be broadcast on ESPN 2. The game is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. The signing of Robinson Cano may have a little – okay a lot – to do with that.

The first question that came to mind: “When was the last time the Mariners had one of the their game broadcast on ESPN?” I know it hasn’t happened since I started covering the team on a consistent basis in 2007. The Mariners media relations staff is actually checking into it. So hopefully we’ll have an answer soon.

From ESPN: The Mariners were on Wednesday night baseball twice in 2011 – Sept. 7 vs. the Angels and Sept. 14 vs. the Yankees.

So I guess it hasn’t been that long.

Of course, the Cano effect only goes so far.¬†Going through the list of scheduled possibilities for the remainder of ESPN’s telecasts for Sunday, Monday and Wednesday night baseball, it doesn’t appear that the Mariners will be on again.
