I thought about getting the MLB.com package last year hear in Des Moines to use the internet to stream games in high def onto my 50 inch plasma. And then I learned I could pay about $150 bucks to not see my team (the Twins) ever play because their games were blacked out on that system if I lived here. So not getting it was an easy decision.
Now I learn that Iowa is essentially "the black hole" of baseball coverage. Not only are the Twins blacked out, but so are the Royals, Cardinals, Cubs, White Sox and Brewers.
I know this is vitally important to the rest of you.
In Kansas There's always radio and its free and doesn't have as many commericials and you get to miss the spitting.
Cubs haven't won the whole enchilada for over a century. It's a good bet you won't miss much from them this season.
Vox is right. Plug the radio into the porch, sit back in the wicker chair and crack open a beer or two. Best way to watch baseball ever. Except it would be better with Ron Santo.
...and you get to miss the spitting.
Or more. I was watching a game yesterday when a team trainer had to go to the mound. Before he could talk he had to dig a fist-sized hunk of chew out of his mouth and sling it to the ground. It's hard to get that kind of authenticity through the radio tubes.
Wow, you are really screwed.
dang. sucks to be iowan.
meh. baseball is dead to me.
The Pirates are worth shelling out the $150 - (Aha , just try to beat THAT snark)
Dude, where's my aspirin? My head hurt just reading that link.
The crap Major League Baseball execs regularly pull is so mind-numbingly stupid, the folks who edit English-language dictionaries should just use the MLB logo to illustrate the word, "asinine."
Idiocy like this is making MLB ever more irrelevant, not only to American culture, but to baseball itself.
What better way to create a fan base among a population than to become invisible to them?
Brilliant business model. They have a future in finance.
