Hey, Fox, where’s the love for West Coast baseball this season?

For the first time in a long time, the West Coast is the center of the baseball universe. With two super teams in Los Angeles (well, one's in Anaheim), the World Series champs in San Francisco and one of baseball's most promising young teams in Oakland, there's no doubt that the coastal power has shifted.

Well, unless, you're Fox, who this week released its schedule of Saturday afternoon national games of the week. You'd expect it would be loaded up with Josh Hamilton, Zack Greinke, Albert Pujols, Buster Posey, Matt Kemp and Matt Cain.

Those guys and those teams are there, but still not as much as the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees ... because, of course.

Over at SB Nation, Grant Brisbee does the heavy lifting (i.e. counting) and figures out which teams get the most love from Fox this season. Three teams have nine appearances: the Red Sox, the Cincinnati Reds and the Washington Nationals.

Interesting teams? Sure, especially the last two. Five teams have eight appearances: the Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers, St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers.

So of the top eight teams, only the Dodgers are on the West Coast, and they're also the only team west of St. Louis. Here's the full list, notice we see the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the San Francisco Giants at the seven-game and six-game mark, respectively.
