In Other News...

I'm listening to baseball (Mets vs. Nats) on my computer RIGHT NOW, AIFG.

I have to decide whether or not to buy the mlb internet radio package this year. It's only $15 for the season, so it's not a matter of cost. It's that they have the nerve to charge for it in the first place. I used to be able to listen to Dodger games over the net for free a few years back on the local radio's site. Then the PTB at MLB saw a revenue source, and they took all the net radio feeds and made them exclusive content of mlb.com. It's not like they took out the ads. It's the same content I could get over the air for free if I was on the other side of the Rockies. I once swore I would never do it. Even said it in an email that got published by a columnist in Network World. (He'd done a piece on it.)

I fear I'm going to cave. It's less than I spend on an average trip to Newbury's. OTOH, I really will be annoyed with myself if I do.

And the Nats win their first game as Nats, 5-3.

The other interesting thing I have discovered is that so far, the Nats games are free, no doubt the result of them not yet having any kind of radio contract with a real station.
