That's an improvement, so credit there. However, every single game should be televised, IMO. As other RSN's do. 

Every home game.

Really?  There are actually teams that televised all spring training games??

Hm, well I stand corrected. Looks like the Sox don't either, but it's a vast majority, and every game is at least on radio, which I'm glad the O's are doing this year.

I would watch every single spring training game (or archive of it later that night) like my life depended on it. Because I am just that ready for baseball by this point each year. I'm not this way for the regular season, but I will voraciously consume Orioles ST baseball even if it's just the scrubbiest of scrub travel lineups.

Great, looking like I'm going to have to figure out how to jerry-rig a VPN now to get MASN to work with mlb.tv.

Big middle fingers up to MASN for not providing a streaming service.

It really, really sucks.

I know it's probably not as easy as it sounds to do something like that...but when MASN (Nats and Orioles, two decent sized markets...or one big market) and the Dodgers are the only ones that don't have it...well, it can't be that hard.  GFY, MASN.

Maybe the two sons will make this happen. Another change they could make and would get good press

I'm not sure about every RSN televising every ST game.  I checked NESN and they'll be airing 16 Red Sox games.  YES will carry 12 Yankees games.

Yes

Has Ben done any TV for the Orioles before? If he has I don’t remember. Still no official announcement about the entire broadcast team.

We still can't even pay to stream Orioles games. Unbelievable...

I guess another year of LazyMan and Baseball Theater for me.

    • By the way, I agree that Davis’ contract was insanely stupid long before he showed us how stupid it was by his performance. Angeles victimized himself. But I’m talking more generally about non-performance of contracts. I think the top earners would fare even better if not for the associated risks by ownership. They aren’t playing with Monopoly money. The risk builds a discounting into what owners will spend. And smaller market teams are less able to take risks because the affect of one Davis-like contract on their smaller payroll is huge. On what principle should players receive the full value of a contract they unable to satisfy competently? We’re rained out tonight....I wouldn’t be asking otherwise. Wait, did you call me noob?  
    • How about a 10 minute deep cleaning between each use of a bathroom stall.  That would be a smarter measure to stop the spread of Covid.  (Or even hourly cleaning of bathroom stalls).  How many Covid infections have really been spread by "outside food"?
    • “Congratulations Mr. O’Corn, I’m thrilled to hire you as my new GM. I’ve always had a real respect, I mean that most sincerely. Obviously we all want to win, I want to win a championship. And I know you want a long career in baseball. and you’d like to keep your kids in school here in Baltimore. Now tell me, should I give you $123 million to work with or $100 million? Which is going to give you a better shot at delivering me a World Series champion?”
    • A catcher can block the plate once he has possession of the ball. Just not before.  Here is the full text of Rule 7.13(2): Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score.  If, in the judgment of the Umpire, the catcher without possession of the ball blocks the pathway of the runner, the Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe. Notwithstanding the above, it shall not be considered a violation of this Rule 7.13 if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the Umpire determines that the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.
    • Tony - I’m not a HIPAA lawyer, but you shouldn’t assume that because the O’s were authorized to disclose he had myocarditis that they are authorized to provide further details or updates.   Even within the organization, except on a need to know basis.    Still, I do find the situation weird and mysterious.  If I were Kjerstad, I’d want Oriole fans to know that I had a good reason for being out.    I hope he will be OK and gets on the field as soon as he can.    
    • MFYs have had numerous examples of big contracts gone bust (the "Fat Toad" comes to mind, LOL). No sweat; just move on to the next.
    • Word is that Boras was trying to talk Ilitch into Davis as an outfielder but his GM convinced him not to make an offer. Other than that I never heard a word about any team having interest at the number he was asking for. I'm sure if his number dropped low enough some team other than the Orioles would have been interested, but he would have cost a first round pick.
