Enlighten me please.
1) They've already got a big deal in place with MLB to broadcast games for years to come. 2) MLB pretty much shutdown "Superstation" TV deals about 15-20 years ago. The owners thought it diluted local markets. So, now we're all stuck with a bunch of JV sports channels and archaic blackout rules on MLB packages. Nobody handles new technology worse than baseball.

I’m super happy to see McGriff finally make it
I’ll be there for the induction and many more to follow hopefully. I only live a couple hours from Cooperstown and have made it over a few times already. I treated myself to the Lifetime Membership last year. If anyone is ever up this way and wants to make a trip to the Hall let me know.

Watching the Braves on TBS and the Cubs on WGN back in the day was so much fun. Miss those days

I’d be fine with the radio guys getting a promotion but you know it won’t be that simple. Get ready for Brian Jordan and Frenchy, or rather Brian Jordan with Nick Green filling in for a perpetually AWOL Frenchy.

Has Glavine quit entirely? If we have to promote tv people I‘d rather have Kelly Crull do play by play than whatever cluster the suits have in mind.

It’s like Jeopardy! failing to just give the nod to Ken. You have to rip the right answer out of the dead hands of these asshats.

Everybody that goes always talks about how great it is. I really need to make the trip one time.

Unsurprisingly, this seems to have created a bunch of drama down there. Folks took exception to the pimp job and Ronald’s dad apparently threatened people, including reporters, after the game, his brother got involved in some vulgar social media criticism of fans, etc. and after the game Ronald said he’s “retiring” from the Venezuelan league.

Probably a good call.

Lol . . . Ya THINK!?

That was a walkoff in October HR trot. January in Venezuela HR trot should be as fast as possible so you can get back to the dugout and make sure your wallet hasn't been stolen.
