MASN coverage

Recommended Posts

Hopefully there will be games in two weeks which got me wondering if there has been any news in MASN covering games, will there be an streaming options and if not what about blackout restrictions.  In our area we have the games blacked out because of mlb rules home area trying to get people to attend games.  However with no attendance will those restrictions be eliminated?

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.

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.

They get most of their money from cable subscribers who never watch a single baseball game.  They don’t want to piss off cable companies.

The bad part is are subscriber doesn’t off the main package but I am blacked out in with the mlb package as well.  If I am at work or in the city it has the package but when we decided to move to suburbs for the family house backyard thing that county is blacked out but no access.  I used to stay in the city get something to eat and watch games if it was one I wanted to see but with the virus and being high risk don’t think that is risk this year I want to take.

If MLB intentionally hired executives to run the sport into the ground, they couldn't do much better than the people in charge now.  It seems like baseball is run with people that think nothing in media or marketing will ever change.  Meanwhile NBA and NFL seems to come up with new marketing, ways to interact/attract fans every day.

Blackouts are the dumbest #%*@ng thing ever and serve no purpose other than to piss people off and have them create workarounds to access the content they want.

Better make sure I can remember how to configure my VPN so I can get MLB Tv to work here.

I intend to explore VPN options this season; looking specifically at NordVPN

I've been doing this for the last few years. PIA(Private Internet Access) VPN, an Nvidia Shield TV so I can download the PIA app, problem solved.

It costs me $125 or whatever the MLBTV season pass costs plus $6 a month for PIA, well worth it to be able to watch any game I want.

So wait, when baseball resumes, people in MD, DC, and VA won’t be able to watch O’s games because of blackouts??

And blackouts are so much more ridiculous in a season where in person attendance will be zero or negligible.  It's utterly absurd.

They probably aren’t thinking about offering a service that’s good only for one, two month season that they’d then need to revoke when fans are back in their seats next year.    But arguably that would be a smart way to test it.

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
