I wish. I'd wouldn't leave the couch for 5 months a year. Empty delivery food containers everywhere, empty soda cans, sunflower seeds on the floor................welcome to heaven. :-B

Ah, just kidding. I really do wish there was an all baseball channel though. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

There is. Get a dish, Direct TV. You wont ever go back to cable. Sure the BB package costs $, but if you love watching bb, its worth it. Some days i get 12 games. You almost always get 8 games, unless its a off day.

I have the MLB Extra Innings package on Digital Cable. I've had 13 games on a day before, and usually 8 or more everyday. It's the greatest invention since toilet paper. I can flip from game to game to game, trying to hit it when one of my hitters is up to bat or sit and watch the game when one of my guys is on the hill. Plus I was watching last night when the Pirates (my favorite team--I know, I'm a masochist) won in the bottom of the 15th on a solo homer by Randall Simon. I live in Seattle and it used to be that the only time I'd ever see the Pirates was when they played the Braves. Now I get to watch them all the time (plus, I have Brian Giles). One of the best things about the package are late-night Dodger games, with Vin Scully. Listening to him call a game is like going back in time.

It's a damn shame when there's a f'ing GOLF channel, but no baseball channel. I don't mean like paying extra like MLB extra innings, but a baseball channel w/ classic games, fantasy angles, and general baseball stuff.

How much is that MLB extra innings? I'm afraid I'll forsake my social life for it.... :-o

I got it before the season started, so it was 20$ off at the time, $139 for the season.

ESPN Classic sometimes has old baseball games. I usually check that out when I'm going to sleep and sometimes catch a cool game. Recently, I watched a game in which Mark "The Bird" Fydrich's, in his rookie year, pitched against the Yankees. It was cool to see the hairdo's (and hairDON'TS--Oscar Gamble--biggest Afro in MLB history) and "The Bird's" antics on the mound. Another game I saw was the 1978 World Series game when Reggie Jackson hit 3 dingers. They had Nolan Ryan's 7th no-hitter on it recently also. If they ever show the 7th game of the 1992 NL Playoffs, when my Pirates lost in the bottom of the 9th on Francisco Cabrera's single to left, I might have to buy a new TV (after throwing a shoe through the TV screen).
