It's been like that for over 2 years now; don't expect it to change. Diamond Broadcasting has a policy to not do web broadcasts - apparently they feel that somehow it loses them money. Not sure how.

OHH ok.....by now i would figure they would take that "this temporally suspended"

I would actually think ESPN 1000 is losing money because for ex:for Mon kc-SOX a fan could just go to listen to a game at the kc radio station

If memory serves, the "temporary suspension" coincided with MLB charging for games via the Internet. While looking for available Internet radio stations last summer, I did find one in Toronto that carries Blue Jays games for free. Otherwise MLB seemed to have the monopoly last season.

I recently had someone try to talk me into subscribing to a satellite radio service. I said I would consider it if I could get all the White Sox games. Apparently, Sirius carries Sunday night baseball and ESPN radio news. I was told I should be happy with that.
