So I was watching TV this afternoon and a commercial came on for MLB Extra Innings. For only $49 you can watch all of the pennants races in the confort of your own living room. Do people actually buy into that crap and think $50 is worth it for a weeks worth a games? That's a third of the cost for the whole season!

The problem with both of those is the massive amount of playoff games that are blacked out.

That is if you're going to watch the playoffs this year. :whiner:

It was only $60 at the all star break? That's a great deal.

Last year we had a free preview of Extra Innings the first week of the season and mine didn't get shut off until August. It was very cool having my pick of games every night.

playoffs are on basic cable/free tv...

I was going to say that. The ALCS/NLCS and the WS were on Fox last year. Is there really that many people that don't get Fox?

the 2nd night of the LCS's (game 2 AL, game 1 NL) the opposite game, so for us cardinals and astros, was on FX. I thinks that the only night both series played at the same time

It was $130 after the break but $50 still isn't a good deal for 6 days of baseball.

The ALDS was definitely blacked out on MLB.tv and was definitely hosted by ESPN. Some may yawn, but watching that Duque stunt on Friday late-afternoon on ESPN was priceless.

Yes, the commercials and the info channel on Direct TV said 4 payments $32.25 for the second half.
