There's your reason... California has 24,921,614 more people yet only 60 more MLB players... don't be too proud about that stat...
In the DR, all they do is play baseball. They are poor, and it's a way off the island.
Ca. total of players is quite significant, although alot of it can be attributed to population and weather.
WR, i do agree East Coast bias seems to be big on ESPN. But i disagree on the awards.
The AL West has won the last 9 MVP awards. A great achievemment, considering the $ is in the AL East, and the AL West only has 4 teams.
The NL West has won 7 of the last 9 MVP awards.
The NL West has won 5 of the last 6 CY Young awards.
