MASN not showing exhibition games

Recommended Posts

MASN is saying they aren't broadcasting the exhibition games to put there employees at risk for games that don't count.  I don't think they are broadcasting them on radio as well.

Well why put them at risk for regular season games? I mean the games are on for people to watch. Whether they count or not is pretty irrelevant.

Sure, if it doesn't cost anything.

You'd think they would do at least ONE of these games! It's the freaking network of BOTH teams! After all this downtime the people are STARVED for some baseball. You'd think they'd SELL OUT the advertising for one of these games, probably for both! What are they going to show instead? ESPNNews? WSOP? How's the ad revenue on those MASN????

It’s always about the money.

So I'm curious to see.  It sounds to me as if MASN is only broadcasting home games (all MLB teams are only doing home games).  So either next week, MASN will show the Red Sox broadcast or Orioles fans won't be able to see it(MLB.TV is only showing NESN broadcast for how to view it?  I'm not real clear on it.  As for not showing the exhibition games, I mean, it sucks, but I'm not going to argue it.  More games = more risk.  Interesting that the Nationals hired their own video crew to stream it.  Wonder how pissed Angelos and co.  are about that.  Personally, I still don't see why MASN can't have Palmer and Thorne broadcast from their home office, using the camera footage from NESN like they've been doing with KBO on ESPN.

All the games are suppose to be on MASN.  Not sure if announcers will travel or broadcast from Home studio for road games.

OK... for what it is worth I have at bat on my phone and it’s showing both games vs Nats airing on MASN. The home team is listed as MASN for both games and the game in DC Tuesday is listed as well as being on 105.7. 

Now maybe it’s not accurate but it is what my phone is showing.

Still that way today. 

They must not have updated it all yet and I don’t trust them showing the 2 games vs Nats airing on MASN either. Who knows.

Right this second... the Nats intrasquad game is airing on MLB.tv.  

Very cool - thanks for that!  Players, I assume pitchers, doing the radar gun behind home with mask.  Players in dugout with masks.

Honestly, I couldn’t care less.    I’ve waited this long, I can wait another week to watch some baseball.    It will be interesting to see (1) how much baseball I end up watching in this shortened season, and (2) what the TV ratings are like this year both at the local level and on nationally televised games.    Are people baseball-starved, or have they found new ways to spend their summer evenings that they like just as well or better?    I’ll admit, I miss baseball, but not as much as I thought I would.

I would think the ratings would be good early on, will be interesting to see if ratings hold as season goes on. 

Obviously if College football is limited that will have an impact. Also will have NBA and NHL competition soon.

Could someone clarify please?  If only home games are on MASN, does this mean mlb is lifting their blackouts, or are we shut out from all away games??

That sounds like bogus information to me.   All the regular season games are on MASN.

If Jarman has other information, he should provide a source.   No one else is claiming MASN is only doing home games.

The programming grid for Verizon FIOS shows both Friday and Saturday's games in Fenway on MASN.

Complaining worked!!!

Made no sense not to air the games. I guess at bat was right.

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.  
    • The mound is 66’ 9” from second base.
