MASN coverage

Recommended Posts

Hopefully there will be games in two weeks which got me wondering if there has been any news in MASN covering games, will there be an streaming options and if not what about blackout restrictions.  In our area we have the games blacked out because of mlb rules home area trying to get people to attend games.  However with no attendance will those restrictions be eliminated?

While we are complaining, MASN isn't airing the exhibition games. Seems like they would want to get the kinks worked out before Opening Day, but alas.

The O's play on the 19th in Philly, vs the National on the 20th and at the Nationals on the 21st. No tv or radio coverage.

A potential solution to this would be to add a surcharge to the MLB package to allow in market streaming.  For example, for subscribers in the Orioles and Nationals area, add say $50 (?) if the subscriber wants to access in market games.  That way, the O's and Nats retain their media revenues.

They get most of their money from cable subscribers who never watch a single baseball game.  They don’t want to piss off cable companies.

The bad part is are subscriber doesn’t off the main package but I am blacked out in with the mlb package as well.  If I am at work or in the city it has the package but when we decided to move to suburbs for the family house backyard thing that county is blacked out but no access.  I used to stay in the city get something to eat and watch games if it was one I wanted to see but with the virus and being high risk don’t think that is risk this year I want to take.

If MLB intentionally hired executives to run the sport into the ground, they couldn't do much better than the people in charge now.  It seems like baseball is run with people that think nothing in media or marketing will ever change.  Meanwhile NBA and NFL seems to come up with new marketing, ways to interact/attract fans every day.

Blackouts are the dumbest #%*@ng thing ever and serve no purpose other than to piss people off and have them create workarounds to access the content they want.

Better make sure I can remember how to configure my VPN so I can get MLB Tv to work here.

I intend to explore VPN options this season; looking specifically at NordVPN

I've been doing this for the last few years. PIA(Private Internet Access) VPN, an Nvidia Shield TV so I can download the PIA app, problem solved.

It costs me $125 or whatever the MLBTV season pass costs plus $6 a month for PIA, well worth it to be able to watch any game I want.

So wait, when baseball resumes, people in MD, DC, and VA won’t be able to watch O’s games because of blackouts??

And blackouts are so much more ridiculous in a season where in person attendance will be zero or negligible.  It's utterly absurd.

They probably aren’t thinking about offering a service that’s good only for one, two month season that they’d then need to revoke when fans are back in their seats next year.    But arguably that would be a smart way to test it.

    • Talk about "lack of imagination..." -- I'm talking about the ZiPS figures, not Szymborski or the Orioles. Hardly seems worth running the projections over five years if there's so little variation from year to year for each of those players. Maybe I'm just spoiled by wildly fluctuating careers in baseball sim games... or reality itself.
    • Wow, I'm shocked to see we're technically still in it. I basically called it done a couple of losses ago. But how could I forget, it ain't over till it's over! 6 games left, so basically the O's have been in contention for 90 percent of the season. Who'd a thunk?
    • The original intention is to stock up on international players which he’s also done. 
    • Well, we're up against it now.   Toronto beat the Yankees tonight.  There's now only one way the O's can make the playoffs: 1) Sweep the Red Sox 2) Toronto loses three to the Yankees the next three days 3) Seattle loses at least 2 games ([email protected], 4 vs Oak)*     *If Seattle goes 5-1 or better, we would still be OK if Houston loses at least 5 of their last 6 (2vsSea, 4 vs Tex) 4) Angels lose at least 1 more game (2 vs SD, 3 @Dodgers)
    • o   (vs. DEVIL RAYS, 9/21)   deGrom had 14 Strikeouts over 7 Inning Pitched tonight ...... but he was charged with a loss, as his Mets fell by a score of 2-1.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=401226481   For the 2020 season overall, deGrom has a 2.14 ERA and an 0.921 WHIP.   o
    • “Keegan Akin started in the bullpen this year with the Baltimore Orioles but has since moved to the rotation. So far it has been paying off for the Orioles as the rookie has been nothing short of impressive. In four starts Akin has produced a 2.35 ERA, 1.62 FIP, 36.4 K%, and 15.5 SwStr%. What is even more impressive is who he put those numbers up against. In those four starts he has faced the Yankees twice, the Braves, and the Blue Jays. All very formidable offenses.  “The only issue with Akin besides the small sample size is that he lives in the zone a little too much. He has a low O-Swing% of 26.3% which means hitters aren’t chasing him outside of the zone. With command issues stemming from the minors he also might be hesitant to live outside the zone and risk walking too many hitters. This is definitely something we have to monitor.   “Akin’s main strength is his fastball which has above average movement in both vertical and horizontal movement. While it doesn’t have much velocity the movement of the pitch makes up for it. He also places it well trying to place it high in the zone as often as possible. That fastball is paired with a changeup that straight up fools hitters. It comes in 10 mph slower than his fastball with late vertical drop at the bottom of the zone. His changeup currently holds an impressive 20.3 SwStr%. “As for 2021 Akin will be an interesting pitcher to evaluate. A very small sample size alone puts a lot of this into question. But with what looks like a solid fastball/changeup combination he will be worth a shot towards the end of drafts.” https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/analyzing-rookie-pitchers-part-ii/
