Don't have it, but I'm guessing that the Scoreboard must show spring training games? If it's for regular season games, it would make sense that it doesn't work yet since the season hasn't started.

It's not working right now. Not sure if it works during ST or not but Madison is probably right. It should be up and running for opening day.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

That was my first suspicion I just wanted to see what it looked like though but whatever. Do you know if it has any special features or is MLB Gameday just as good?

Not sure. I'm pretty new to Insider. I only have it because of a ESPN magazine trial. I probably won't be keeping it.

I got the magazine just for the Insider stuff. Insider isn't gold, but it's a decent perspective on things from guys who are supposed to be professionals at fantasy sports. It's like $20 or $30 a year and I like it enough for that amount.

The magazine blows, though. :-t

I don't like the magazine either but I figured I'd give it a shot. Insider is OK but it just not worth paying for. You can get most of the news through a site like SportSpyder. Some of the fantasy-related articles are OK but it's really not much that I don't get from here or the other free sites I frequent.
