FANS WANT MORE: In San Diego, Bill Center notes the Padres yesterday "announced a webcast expansion of spring training broadcasts," while DirecTV said that it would "telecast the nine remaining spring training games" scheduled by FS San Diego and pick up the RSN's total lineup on April 1. The Padres are "going to offer an additional 12 spring training exhibitions via audio webcasts." The webcasts will "raise the number of games available through television, radio or webcasts to 32." Garfinkel said, "We heard from our fans that they wanted all of the games broadcast, so we found a solution to close the gap for them." The webcasts will be on Padres.com with play-by-play "provided by either" Bob Scanlan or Andy Masur (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 2/28).
