    RIP to a true fan, John Adams.

    5 decades of banging his rally drum from the top of the bleachers. Hell of a run. Even got a bronze statue of his drum on the bleachers in the Tribe’s heritage park; pretty cool.

    MLB continues to screw its fans who just want to watch the damned games.

    MLB Network announced today that YoutubeTV abruptly dropped it today. Ok, no big deal if you don't use YTTV, especially if you have Hulu+ or God forbid, a dish service.

    Then this afternoon I hear that Sinclair, the guys who bought Bally Sports (nee Fox Sports regional networks), may have to declare bankruptcy because apparently they don't have the money to pay the pro franchises for the broadcast rights they bought.

    They also bought Bally Sports without having a way to deliver the product to viewers like agreements with streaming and dish services or an app which I'm told is pretty important if you're in the TV business.

    So, that means potentially less money for teams, unclear path forward for actually watching these teams and for fans of teams that don't own their own network like YES, then another year of hoping you can piece together finding the games between a single-team mlb subscription, Apple+ broadcasts, actual over the air and God knows what else.

    https://www.beaconjournal.com/story/...s/69858745007/

    If you think your small(er) market team was cheap before, just wait and see what happens when you take away their cut of the TV money.

    And MLB TV has partnered with TikTok to help grow its younger fan base

    Broadcasts will be tape-delayed 15 minutes for Youth Engagement Edits.

    FFS, but God forbid having more day games when kids can come or starting night games/playoffs earlier so kids can watch.

    And fuck irul for starting the mlb thread 2 years in a row even though the Yankees have not won a world series in 12+ years.

    Are you fucking kidding me? We're really going to have tiktok shit to start each game?

    Oh, and to update my earlier broadcast rant, I looked to see if mlb network is on Hulu live tv+; it's not.

    You’re welcome. Looking forward to more underperformance from Chavez Ravine.

    10:10pm est first pitch on Opening Day for my Guardos.

    For once I’d like MLB to figure out how to schedule Opening fucking Day. It’s not hard. It’s still snowing in the Great Lakes in April so send those teams to Florida, Texas and Georgia. Arizona too maybe.

    Nah, let’s send you guys out west for a 7:10 local pitch, that should help with getting more eyeballs on the product like we’re always bitching about. Ffs.

    That aside, I do like the matchup of two young, good teams.

    Anyone else getting excited for the WBC? I’ve never paid all that much attention in the past, but am excited this year. I May need to shoot over to Phoenix for the USA Mexico game.

    Puerto Rico vs Dominican Republic may be the game of the tournament though. So many old angry white dudes yelling about how much fun the players are having.

    I’d rather become a Marlins fan, and cheer for festive home run celebrations.

    Within the next decade, I will be able to going to spring training on the reg which I am looking forward to.
