MLB Network Highlight Bias

Since MLB Network launched, I have watched much of its programming.  As such, I have noticed a pattern during highlight footage of shows that present both current and some historical footage.  I have noted a sustained number of highlights featuring our pitchers getting lit up, and hitters hopeless striking or grounding out.  This has gone on since the opening months of the network.  I like the shows, at least a good number of them.  I have complained about this to MLB Network and the highlights keep coming.  The day Wandy signs a contract (had to be a coincidence) we get highlight reels of him getting lit up and Hunter not making a tough play at the wall.  My theory is since they are based out of New Jersey, it has to be a Mets fan working in the video archives, or maybe the Braves, or maybe the Cardinals.  They're the only teams I can think of that would instigate this outrageous bias of negative highlights of our guys.  Sometimes I swear, its from two seasons ago or something, Inter-league play, etc.  Start complaining, lets see some Pirates and Royals striking out., anyone.  If its a Mets fan I'll be especially upset.
