You mean we don't all just read the boards and look at FG or Savant later....
I have no idea how I'm going to sit through three hours if I'm lucky enough to have a grade schooler who would abide sitting through three hours (here's Tanner Scott taking 36 seconds to throw this next pitch really really fast) in a few years.
But at least the team could be fair to middlin'.
I understand, they make cord-cutting complicated with all the bundling. We have Hulu through Spotify and I paid a discounted annual fee for Disney+. I have considered ESPN+ for Bundesliga soccer (go Dortmund!) which I got into when it was among the first sports back early on with the pandemic, but have yet to pull the trigger, probably will in the fall when college football is back to normal as well.
Also, MASN is developing an app. Who else expects it to be, well, less than state of the art, and not available on a bunch of platforms? I have a Roku smart TV, so fully expect it to not be available on Roku. This is the same network that was broadcasting in standard definition like three years after everyone else went HD.
Where's @RShack to tell us how huge of an investment it is to develop an app, and how it's unrealistic it is to expect any network to get this going in under 24 months?
Not unexpected, but a bummer nonetheless.
I wonder how many of last year's 30 alternate sites could support MLB + AAA guys getting ready in 3 weeks, though I guess at most of those you lack the multiple mounds and fields for reps the Grapefruit and Cactus complexes have.
If the Jays are talking about playing at Dunedin, the Orioles maybe could practice at Bowie. Level up the pitching Gunnar's seeing there again....that John Means is a tough at-bat.
Of course the family is now pretty vested in Hulu, and that comes with Disney+ and ESPN+ for as long as you have Hulu. I'm probably not going to switch to a more expensive, different service that doesn't include Disney/ESPN+ just for MASN. I'll figure out other Oriole solutions.
I listened to 80% of the games on AM radio until well into high school, I'll be okay.
