    Baseball Is Broken (off the field/labor relations etc.)

    FWIW, the Portland Seadogs send an email after you attend with a survey about the pitch clock. I am hopeful this is at the request of MLB, and also hoping the results are extremely positive in favor of the clock. I gave highest grade on every question.

    Minor league thread 2022

    Was in Portland yesterday. Rafaela’s 1st hit was a line shot off the monster, one hop directly to the left fielder. He made a solid throw, and Rafaela beat it. Most get thrown out on those or stop at first base.

    AppleTV Announces Deal For Friday Night MLB Games

    I believe this will be also available on NBC. Assuming that is a short-term fix, and will eventually require the peacock subscription.

    AppleTV Announces Deal For Friday Night MLB Games

    Sox are on Apple TV Friday night. I can find nothing saying if this is only available live, or if, like any DVR, can be started from the beginning at any point in the game, or after completion?

    Red Sox in season discussion

    In addition to short-term replacement of those who cannot legally enter Canada, does anyone have knowledge on whether those short-term replacements being optioned back to Worcester or Portland counts toward the new limited number of options? I believe it is 5 annual options per player per the...

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    I am using Nord VPN for second consecutive year. No problems to date. Last year seemed to have one random game every 2-3 weeks that would not work. You may need to log out, connect to another city, then do a new login.

    MLB Umpires To Begin Announcing Replay Decisions

    The biggest difference for replay among the 3 major sports leagues is that NFL and NBA have the local officials actually viewing the play in question. However, MLB umps are completely at the mercy of headset-only status, just to potentially be told they screwed up. by the bored looks on their...

    Trevor Story has signed with the Boston Red Sox

    unlikely. It seems like a great hedge against Bogaerts leaving after next year, assuming elbow would play at SS

    Tom Brady retires

    Is there any chance this is intended to be leverage for possible reunion with Josh McDaniel in Vegas? Bucs get a choice of losing him for nothing or get a few picks and/or Carr.

    NFL Officiating: Zebras gone wild

    1st play from scrimmage for SF at Dallas. Defender lines up with hand on the line of scrimmage. No “unabated to QB”, as he did not jump early, and OT engaged him. Flag thrown at snap, and after a pass was thrown (before it was caught for 11-12 yard gain) whistle blows it dead. Announcers were...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Unlimited does sound right. I record every pats, Sox, and Celtics game, and have never deleted anything. Been a subscriber for at least 3 years.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    YouTube TV allows up to 3 streams at a time. DVR space is good, I believe a few hundred hours. The potential issue with two homes sharing is their requirement for a device to log in from the billing zip code at times. I used it to watch sports on my tablet after traveling for work all day, and...

    2021-2022 NBA Game Thread!

    Curious if they are travelling with the team or not. This could be due to fear of a Toronto 10-day quarantine, especially for a star. If that becomes a thing, Toronto may have a unique experience of home games being against teams at less than full strength - even more so than we are seeing...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    It sounds like Hulu live or Fubo are best of the remaining choices. I am a sports-only watcher, and my wife watches only a few other channels. Fubo has the benefit of NESN. Any opinions from users of either about these two? I began YTTV fairly early. YTTV has a clean and simple interface...
