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.

    • Sparks finished the Aberdeen portion of his season at .240/.336/.404 in 119 PA, after slashing .256/.344/.388 at Delmarva in 183 PA.   Not spectacular, but enough to keep him in the organization next year I suspect.   Will be interesting to see if they keep him at Aberdeen or push him to Bowie.   
    • I question your 2nd paragraph.   If Georgia becomes owner with John as Orioles Executive he has already been officially name to running the team.   He has been involved with the team through he 2012-2016 period where they won more games than any team in the League.   That is a measure of success.  John has also managed MASN. As far as the MASN lawsuit with MLB.  This sounds like a good reason to settle the issue without the Angelos Suing MLB yet again for not allowing them to continue as owners.  
    • Well, you have to have the desire to keep it and there are issues with that.
    • Why are you and Frobby poo pooing Mountcastle's accomplishment? Did I miss where anyone claimed Mountcastle was better than Ripken or that his accomplishment was better than when Ripken made the record?  He broke it, congrats to him. How this turned into people poo pooing the young man's accomplishment is beyond me.
    • From David Laurila’s Sunday column: Ryan McKenna grew up in Maine and attended high school in New Hampshire, so playing at Fenway Park is an especially big thrill. Doubling off of Chris Sale in his first-ever start at the historic ballpark, which he did on August 14, was therefore a moment he won’t soon forget. I asked the Baltimore Orioles rookie outfielder about it on Friday. “He got me the first time, but I thought I saw him pretty well,” recalled McKenna, who chose humility over bravado when addressing the subject. “He’s got such a deceptive angle to his pitches, because he’s so far on the left side, so I was just trying to take it pitch-by-pitch and hoping to get one over the plate. I was trying to stay positive.” Fair enough. But just how cool was it to get an extra-base knock off a pitcher of Sale’s caliber, and do so at Fenway Park? “Very cool,” admitted the 24-year-old McKenna, who had a number of family and friends on hand that afternoon. “It’s a testament to a lot of hard work, and there’s a long road ahead, for sure. But yeah, it was pretty cool to get one off of him.” Where did it rank among the biggest moments of his young career? “Pretty high,” said McKenna. “My first home run and my first hit are No. 1 and No. 2. My first hit was actually against Boston, at Camden Yards, and my first homer was against Washington. The hit against Sale, here at Fenway, is probably No. 3.” https://blogs.fangraphs.com/sunday-notes-twins-prospect-louie-varland-is-a-st-paul-sibling-on-the-rise/
