Well yeah, but that totally misses my point. Sure they make a lot more money that way, but my point is it's because they're forcing anyone who wants cable/satellite in that market to pay for YES. They're making more money by refusing to give customers a choice - other than the choice of simply cutting the cord, that is.

Same holds true for the other RSNs. I was just using YES as an example.

No, I don't see a la carte happening anytime soon. The people/corporations making billions from these sports TV deals will never let that happen.

WSI Sox Slow Start Excuse-O-Meter
- Poor play in spring training doesn't matter (2005!)
- It's still April
- It's early May
- Wait until Memorial Day before worrying about anything
- Wait until the weather gets warmer
- '83 Sox! '05 Astros!

- Still time to turn things around in 2nd half
- In Aug/Sept: Another lost season - time to bring back Ventura & Co for 2016.
Special mention: - Blame Sox fans for not showing up to games as soon as the team has one winning streak.
