  1. The irony of someone responding to a broadcaster that "hates everything" with this kind of rant. You're a real ray of sunshine yourself.
  2. Hahahahaha...it's baseball, it will do for now.
  3. I suspect you are right. They're actually talking about Trey and yesterday's game now during the Red Sox-Braves game on NESN.
  4. Law already has the O's ranked 16th in his 2022 rankings.
  5. I'm gonna get a cocktail: vodka and ginger ale
  6. Geoff Arnold, Kevin Brown, Scott Garceau, Brett Hollander, Rob Long, Ben McDonald, Melanie Newman, Jim Palmer. It just lists the broadcast team alphabetically.
  7. Assuming this list is up to date, I'm fairly stunned with how many RSNs are not available on streaming services like YouTubeTV, Fubo or Hulu. Edit: Well, I guess other than AT&T Now.
  8. Oh yeah, I meant that the subscriber usually gets the shaft, whether they realize it or not. Especially the one that just has cable to watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and has no idea what MASN is.
  9. Oh I totally get it. I paid for Directv in North Carolina for many years only to watch O's games, because it was my only option. I'd happily pay quite a bit to be able to stream the O's without a cable subscription, but I don't know how many other people would. The cable companies and RSNs still have a pretty sweet deal because so many people pay a fee in their bill to cover local sports rights that couldn't care less about sports.
  10. Agreed. It used to be about local attendance, but I think now its more about the crazy contracts that RSNs are paying to show games. They want to keep those subscribers.
  11. Yep. I tried to be positive, but most people are understandably upset. I don't know who's responsible for the broadcasters--the O's or MASN--but it wasn't really handled well.
  12. I don't necessarily think it's dumb. It's inconvenient for sure though. If you get rid of the blackout rules, you would remove a whole lot of the value to the MASN (or whatever RSN) relationship. Whatever money the O's get from MASN, I think that would go down quite a bit with local access to MLB.TV. I assume you'd have to then pay more for MLB.TV and things could get messy when divvying out royalties to individual teams.
  13. Sorry, I apparently misunderstood you. I didn't realize that MASN is not available on YouTube TV or any of the other streaming options. That's pretty crazy these days.
  14. I am pretty sure that's not a MASN problem, that's an MLB problem. Like, if you live in Chicago, you can stream the White Sox or the Cubs, but only if you are a subscriber to NBC Sports Chicago or Marquee.
  15. I think that's the way it has to be at this point. I don't think a team can market their individual streaming rights. I think all of that has to go through MLB.TV. For local people, that would mean getting rid of their somewhat ridiculous and antiquated local blackout rules. Unfortunately, I don't think that is happening any time soon. They can let people watch online that subscribe to MASN already, but I think that's the only thing they can do from a team streaming perspective. So its definitely a step forward, IMO, but only for those that already have access to MASN through an existing cable, satellite, streaming package.
