How much would you be willing to pay for MASN al la carte

Recommended Posts

And miss Wall to Wall Baseball with Tom Davis and Dave Johnson every Saturday?

Hush yo mouth!

Is that the totality of original offseason programming? (I don't get MASN)

Lots of reruns of "classic" Orioles and Nats games.

Some low level college football and college basketball (not power 5 leagues, maybe stuff like Sun Belt or Atlantic 10).

Lots of poker.

Not really sure... I don't tune to the channel most of the time to see what is on.

So nothing original.

Not that I am aware of. I don't tend to go looking for things on the channel so I could well be missing something.

$15 or so? I pay $20 for mlb.tv so some significant percentage of that, for sure.

I don't know...I like being able to watch pretty much any game.

At this point I would feel like I was missing out if I only get MASN.

Maybe $12, or $10?

How many channels do you watch 24-7 anyway? At least with Masn your watching 162 days a year for 3-4 hours daily. The pre and post game stuff you wont find on ESPN, thats for sure.

My point is that MASN would have to be significantly less expensive than the MLB package for how I value both. I'm not interested in pre or post game shows.

OK. I see you get all the teams and the mlb highlight show, plus they do alot of commentary every day. I agree MASN probably wont add anything significant unless you want to watch Dempsey and Hunter following every game.

At the low end, I pay nothing extra for AMC which is included in the basic cable lineup and has what I consider the best programming on cable.

At the high end, I pay $20 a month for HBO which is a "premium" channel. So I'd pay $10 maybe $15 a month for MASN in season.

You are paying for AMC it is part of your bundle. I would say you can get HBO for 14.95 a month as a stand alone via steaming your cable company is overcharging you for it. I pay for HBO because they have Sesame Street. Once my daughter stops watching Sesame Street I am saving 15 bucks a month.

Isn't Sesame Street on Netflix?

    • @#!% %[email protected]#! %@!$ &%[email protected] In my sim, Hunter Harvey is already hurt.  Thankfully it's not the arm, it's a leg injury.  But he's out for 5 weeks. So I scoured my minors, Marcos Diplan is actually performing well.  So I bring him up.  And what does he do?  First appearance, he drills Tim Anderson, touches off a brawl and gets SUSPENDED FOR NINE GAMES.  Apparently the league felt that Diplan was at fault because Anderson only got 4 games.   At one point I was 5-5 and thinking...hey, this team might not be that bad.  Now I'm 10-24 and wondering how my staff will make it through the season. In other words, it's feeling like the real thing.
    • I for one won't like it.  George Orwell certainly was a prophet, wasn't he?
    • Gregg Olson was a career relief pitcher (never started a game) who was known for his astonishing curveball.  Sometimes he played for the Baltimore Orioles but also sometimes he did not. On April 20th, 1998, at age 31, he was pitching for the Arizona Diamondbacks.  He hadn't taken a live Major League at-bat since 1994.  In the bottom of the 7th, he crushed a 3-2 pitch from Óscar Henriquez into the left-field bleachers, scoring Devon White. What could Gregg have been thinking as he trudged into the batter's box?  Was he thinking, here's a spot for a home run?  I'm looking fastball on the full count?  Here's where I get 2 of my 2 career RBIs?  Was he just saying, aw (freaking heck, jeez Louise), look at all this (stuff) my job is making me do?  And then he launches one.  Sends the big leathery boy into the night.  What was he looking for, trying to do?  Was he going for the big fly, or just trying to put it in play?  How do you hit a 4-bagger if you're going for contact?  Gregg must've been going for it.  He came, he saw, absolutely conquered. What was his reaction?  Diamondbacks crushed the game, his donger was just a grave dance on a defeated opponent, but holy heck.  A live, major league home run you were never supposed to hit.  You'd be psyched for a year.  You'd be giving your significant other the extra spicy treatment for the next decade.  I tell you friends, I'd feel like a god forever.  Here I am, trying to do one job in professional baseball, getting sucked into another, and straight crushing it.  Metaphorically and literally hitting the jackpot.  I'd tell that story to anyone I ever met forever.  Yeah I pitched professional baseball, but let me tell you about the time they made me hit.  Oh, what do you do, sell insurance?  Shut up nerd, I destroyed a baseball on live television. I don't even CARE about opposing pitcher Óscar Henriquez.  I don't even know who the guy is.  Was he a fan-of-the-month they let pitch, and that's why I hit a dinglerooski off him in a 15-4 game?  Go ahead and audit my home run, tell me I'm not legit.  I'm in Baseball-Reference, permanently.  People who do not like it can call the police. What does Gregg Olson do now?  Does he ever think about that home run?  Because I do and it inspires me when I need it to.
    • Are you saying his comeback attempt soured voters?
    • Much like the House in Vegas, the insurance company always wins in the end.
    • I pooped myself that day... In my defense, I was 9 days old!
    • Haha... but the frustration is therapeutic cause it's baseball!
