The Pen: MLB owners’ vote could be big news for baseball fans cutting the cord
https://sports.yahoo.com/the-pen-mlb-owners-vote-could-be-big-news-for-baseball-fans-cutting-the-cord-200214832.html

 

I’m driving but this flashed on my screen. I cut the cord 4 years ago and have been patiently awaiting MLB package to allow me to watch a “blacked out” game (MASN). Does anyone know about this???

Same here. I'm up here in CT between the NYY and BOS markets, so I had almost 40 games blacked out every year. I used a service called Unlocator, cost $5 a month. Totally worth it.

Same thing I've done the last few seasons. I'll gladly pay for MLB TV to avoid paying for cable.

Depends on a lot of factors if you really save a lot after cutting the cord.  I know some people that have cable bills around $200/month.    You can do far better than that with cord cutting.

I personally tried my best to keep my TOTAL Internet and TV bill at 100 or less.   That was possible with FIOS and Comcast for a time.  But it's a hassle.  Really looking forward to seeing what the details on this will be.

Amen, brother.

I really like watching games within the MLB TV app, I can easily switch between games when the O's are on commercial - or if a game gets out of hand. Highly recommend it to anyone here who is a fan of watching games outside their hometown team.

My DirecTV bill fluctuated between $90 and $110 the last ten years or so depending on what tier I chose and any add ons (HBO or Showtime, etc. but usually only for a few months). MASN was part of my overall package all that time. In 2019, finally cut the cord, dumped DirecTV and I decided to just listen via the At Bat app ($19.99 / year) to the O's radio broadcast team. I miss Palmer, but now that my YouTubeTV subscription gets me what I basically want for $52 a month, it was a better financial situation for me. If I can at some point stream MASN, I'll do it. I'm not holding my breath with MLB waiving the in-market blackout for MLB-TV. I'd have had MLB-TV if that had not been the case. I tried 3 VPNs over two years in an exploratory effort to cut the cord in recent years and Apple or MLB-TV eventually got hip to it and I ended my VPN experiment.

    • I was looking at the pitching free agents available over at MLBtraderumors.com, and I remember thinking that we are going to look at the worst guy in the pile, and then manage to find someone worse.
    • It had an assist from generic rooting for Game 7 and more baseball, but being in the Astros corner for that rally (perhaps marking high water mark of Nate Eovaldi career attainment) was a fun 8th/9th inning. I didn't love still using Pressly with the big lead, but looking at Roster Resource everybody but tonight's bulk hero Cristian Javier had pitched yesterday except Odorizzi, so Dusty maybe didn't have another option besides sending Jake Odorizzi down there to try and warm up hastily as they were making it 9-2.   Top of Red Sox lineup got precious looks at Pressly going towards last three games. I guess we get Framber v. Sale/Houck tomorrow afternoon.
    • I thought it would be interesting to keep up with all the different players who are projected by different publications for the Orioles to choose as the top draft pick in 2022. Of course some of these publications will have much more merit than others but I'll list everything I come across just for the sake of interest. Initially, here is what I see: Elijah Green.   https://throughthefencebaseball.com/2022-mlb-mock-draft-1-0-elijah-green-brooks-lee/ Brooks Lee.  http://www.mymlbdraft.com/MLB-Mock-Draft Terrmarr Johnson.   https://medium.com/minor-league-madhouse/2022-mlb-mock-draft-end-of-season-edition-ae9f30e87719 Druw Jones.   https://www.prospectslive.com/prospects-live/2021/10/3/a-why-so-soon-2022-mlb-mock-draft  
    • We need ILBs that push Queen to special teams.
    • Dodgers Will Smith 3.28.1995, 32nd pick in the draft from Louisville Lamar Jackson 1.7.1997, 32nd pick in the draft from Louisville Working out pretty well for both clubs. These are the kinds of things that four+ hour 8.5 inning games let you think up. Smith settling into cleanup for a juggernaut as a 26-year-old catcher - go get' em Adley. Fantastic game today making it a series* - Dodgers have first franchise 3-run rally late in postseason to set alongside franchise record for Wins this year.   Evan Phillips today's streamer adding his bit to the data set at David Price's expense around RP10 being >>> SP4 in baseball world with these roster rules.   I imagine it feels somewhat incorrect to Friedman he can't option him tonight. *I probably still might have guessed Dodgers ~20% shot even if they lost today.  
    • Good to hear that he is already undergoing chemotherapy and that he has the right mindset to beat this terrible enemy.  
    • Adley will help to improve the team some, but he cannot create talent where there is pitifully little.  Now with all the high draft choices and the horrible records of the past few years, of course one would expect to see some improvement in W/L.  But as my 95 year Grandmother always  said before she passed on,  YOU CANNOT MAKE A SILK PURSE OUT OF A SOWS EAR.  Same applies to baseball talent.  You cannot  come up with enough talent in the short term, and maybe a little beyond,  to  overcome  all the sins of  the previous number of years.
