The idea is to get the baseball listener market locked up.  Doesn't matter 
if you're listening to Mets or Yankees. 

You're listening to an INFINITY station instead of someone else's.   And 
it wouldn't have made sense to cannibalize Infinity's highest billing 
station (Sports Radio 66) to bring the Mets to News Radio 88.  The Mets 
have been on AM 66 forever....
