I love watching Puig play and he is only 29.
Spening on a guy in hopes of building trade value is an interesting move for a rebuilding club.
Would be a nice cudgel against the anti-ownership people who say the Orioles are cheap.
A potential solution to this would be to add a surcharge to the MLB package to allow in market streaming. For example, for subscribers in the Orioles and Nationals area, add say $50 (?) if the subscriber wants to access in market games. That way, the O's and Nats retain their media revenues.
While we are complaining, MASN isn't airing the exhibition games. Seems like they would want to get the kinks worked out before Opening Day, but alas.
The O's play on the 19th in Philly, vs the National on the 20th and at the Nationals on the 21st. No tv or radio coverage.
