i have access to an un-blacked out mlb.tv account and it's pretty much the best thing ever. i imagine most people would pay a decent amount for the ability to watch home team games and saturday afternoon games that are blacked out by fox.

Where I went to school in mid-PA we got the : Nationals, Pirates, O's but no Phillies so I bought MLB.TV and the Phillies were blacked out :-t


Lame. I'd also have the Mets and Red Sox blacked out if I were to buy the package, which of course I won't, since I actually like to watch baseball games. With people, especially young folks, cutting out cable left and right, it seems like a really dumb move on MLB's part to keep these archaic blackout rules. I can't speak for everyone, but I'd gladly pay somewhat more than MLB.tv's current price if there were no regular season blackouts, even if playoffs still weren't included.


I agree...let's make it

why did Axford come into the game for Milwaukee just to get 1 out?
there was no runner on, and it wasn't a save situation since Milwaukee was trailing 2-0.
- T. Dillard relieved T. Saito
- M. Diaz hit for J. Veras
- M. Diaz grounded out to shortstop
- J. Tabata popped out to shallow right
- J. Axford relieved T. Dillard
- J. Harrison flied out to center

Why are they giving me Little League updates during a nationally televised Major League game?
