I'm surprised there's anyone on this site who gets it but doesn't watch. I have it on all the time. Even with all the other viewing options these days, it's fanfuckingtastic if you're a baseball fan.
Anything that simply shows a "COMMERCIAL BREAK" title card instead of commercials is the greatest thing in the history of forever
so imagine what’s going to happen when, say, 40% of local fans won’t see their home team. In New York, that would mean nearly 3 million TV households would be shut out.
2. They like baseball. This is another thing you wouldn't think would be that difficult but it's the biggest difference I see in the coverage between MLB and NFL on the other networks. It seems that baseball coverage on other networks always needs to point out the warts and flaws of baseball but everything in football is hunky-dory (changing a bit with concussion issues perhaps). I'm not saying I need Kevin Bacon at the end of Animal House but announcers who are enjoying what they do and sharing that enjoyment with the viewers is more pleasant to watch. When Joe Magrane gushes about Stephen Strasburg, you get a sense of what a big deal Strasburg is.
I frankly think it makes more sense to sell the AL and NL regular season rights separately to increase visibility, even if it means a little less money. That way you'd have the FOX AL Game of the Week and the NBC NL Game of the Week.
Since I started getting MLBN (and the NHL network, not that ESPN knows what those letters mean), I haven't turned on sportscenter once. My only gripe is the seemingly random selection and length of live-look-ins. That and Amsinger's voice.
Plus it means I get to occasionaly hear Vin Scully on my TV, and that's priceless.

Bud Selig's ears shut down after the "less money" part. Of course, I wouldn't want to be confused with Whitey Herzog. Now get off my lawn! Darn kids!
shows with rick sutcliffe are just irritating so off he goes

I've been watching the MLB Network more and more. I don't love every show but overall it's pretty good baseball coverage. I'm not too thrilled that Clubhouse Confidential is off the schedule, however. (Does anyone know whether this is permanent?) Plus, where else are you going to catch Sean Forman on TV?
...I fully own up to Williams being a guilty pleasure of mine...

From the mlb.tv website: "Postseason.TV: Subscribers to Postseason.TV, available only during the MLB Postseason, will be able to view live alternative video feeds (excluding the broadcast feed) from MLB Postseason games without blackout restrictions."
I subscribed to mlb.tv from the beginning, I think (5 years ago?).
