Less than 10 years ago, Washington Post reporter Frank Ahrens recalls listening to games free via Yahoo, a move MLB had coralled, believe it or not. He concedes it's
nice to have all the games on MLB TV even if you have to pay. What Frank doesn't know
yet is that many games are blacked out on MLB TV for no apparent reason. He calls it watching baseball's 'pay-by-pay.'
Of course, I'm eternally grateful for XM myself--I just have to have baseball.
