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???

MASN sucks.  

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.

    • Trey is 10 months away from being eligible for free agency.   Here are a bunch of questions that he and the O's face: Can he stay well? Can he return to his 2019 production? Do the O's trade him? What is his trade value considering the extremes of the first two questions. Do the O's extend him? What kind  of a contract would he accept? Length? Incentive based? Do the O's wait until he is a free agent and then decide if they want to re-sign him? When are younger player(s) ready to take his spot? When does he get too expensive  considering the young players available? There seems to be a wide range of answers to these questions that Elias, Ownership,  Trey  and his agent need to address.   What is your take?
    • We have the #1 pick. I’m hoping the draft actually happens this offseason. It’s a nice way for us to add a top 30 organizational prospect for a minimal price. 
    • MLB pipeline had him as Boston’s #19 prospect in 2019. Seems like he might be a RH version of Alex Wells. Reyes might throw a bit harder at 88-92. Good milb depth to add. His scouting report from mlbpipeline after the 2019 season is below, Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Slider: 50 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 60 | Overall: 40 Boston spent more than $146 million on its 2014 international class, including a $72.5 million contract for Rusney Castillo and a record $31.5 million bonus (plus a matching amount in penalty tax) for Yoan Moncada. Signed with no fanfare for $90,000 out of the Dominican Republic that July, Reyes has pounded the strike zone and dominated everywhere he has gone since. The low Class A South Atlantic League named him its pitcher of the year in 2018, when he ranked second in the Minors in WHIP (0.91), fourth in ERA (1.97) and K/BB ratio (7.6) and fifth in walk rate (1.1 per nine innings). Reyes derives his success from uncanny command, a knack for sequencing his pitches and deception. His fastball works from 88-92 mph with ordinary life, but plays better than its velocity because he uses his 6-foot-4 frame and high arm slot to create extension and downhill plane. His changeup is his most reliable secondary offering and his low-80s slider/cutter is more effective than his mid-70s curveball, which has shape but lacks power. Reyes has supreme pitchability but his body is fairly maxed out, so he probably won't throw much harder. He has little margin for error but rarely made mistakes while averaging 0.9 walks per nine innings during his first four pro seasons. While it's hard to give him a ceiling higher than a No. 5 starter, he's intelligent, determined and gets the most out of his ability.
    • And TJ McFarland, who has done quite well for himself.
    • How could you forget Joey Rickard. 
    • Rank every player in our minor league system from 1-150.  We got time.
