Anyone Actually Paying for This...

Postby jlm53089 » Thu Apr 08, 2010 11:34 am

The whole replay system they have going next to your players name.
I am just kind of curios why add this in this year?

For those who dont know what I am talking about just look at the top of your league page.

I'll enjoy the free preview while it lasts, but I'm not going to actually pay for it. Any highlights that are worth seeing will either be on Baseball Tonight, SC, or any highlight reel online.

You can probably dig these highlight videos for free on the teams' official pages or on MLB.com. All you're paying for is the convenience in having not to search for those videos. Anyhow, it's easy to search for HR highlights if that's what you're looking for on Hit Tracker anyway.

It's cool but totally irrelevant to managing a better fantasy team.

I might pay for it. I don't watch TV much and if broken down the service costs less than $2 per month. The time it would take to search out these highlights every month is worth more than $2 to me, so their availability wouldn't be a deterrent. I think it's a cool idea, though I agree it's not fantasy relevant...

Kind of off-topic, but mlb gameday used to give video highlights of hrs/plays during the game, but I think that's only a feature now if you pay for it.. :-t

It's actually MLB.com that's getting your money, Yahoo is just integrating it into it's interface. Does this mean you won't be getting the free highlights like we got last year? Not sure, it almost seems like MLB is aggregating them by player highlights then charging you for them.
