    I have mlb.tv, too, and the video was available because I checked it. Maybe it was radio only for free.

    You dont have to record it. Its like a DVR, when you go to the game it will ask you if you want to start live, beginning of the game or I think there is another option. I also think they keep the games stored for a certain amount of time. Not sure on that one though. Hope this helps.

    Yes. I think on the internet they keep the whole season. Not so sure how long on devices like xbox, roku, mobile devices.

    You are blacked out of local games but they are available one hour after the last pitch for replay.

    When the term "free game" is used here, what does that mean? How do you know what game is free? I have MLBEI already, but I'll be away from this weekend and if the "free game" happens top be the Dodgers on Sat/Sun then I'll watch it via MLB.tv on my brother's Roku.

    MLB.com list the free game each day starting at 11 am. Just look to the left where it has the days schedule. The game that is free has a box around it saying free game of the day or something like that.

    Okay, got it, thanks. It actually says "MLB.TV FREE GAME" in the box itself, today's game is Houston at Pittsburgh.

    alot of afternoon games, travel days and god why in the world are we having 1pm games on a tuesday in the heart of the begining of the work week.

    Ok seriously, can someone explain why MLB thought of having a pair of 2 game sets this week then starting 1 weekend of interleague, and the rest on june.

    today astros phillies 1pm, they will try and get the game in, its been raining all morning and rush hour showers expected.

    so come 4 or 5pm ish we are going to have showers, heavy in spots going home traffic and going home baseball traffic = hell on the roads.

    More afternoon weekday games = more gooder. I wish there would be at least one daily.

    I know for the local traffic, TV ratings, and attendance it sucks - but as an avid baseball fan, having games on more often is better than juggling watching 10+ night games.

    I work retail so I have odd days off. Its nice to have a professional sporting event on in the afternoons when I'm off.

    well having the new xfinity live complex up is a help. I haven't been to an afternoon game since it opened. But I am next month. I rather spend the 90 min that would be traffic time at a place and go home after the rush hour.

    every afternoon between 4-7 the traffic is extremely bad, adding baseball traffic, work traffic, and now beach traffic, along with Rain is just bad.

    Well, that happens with bad urban planning. Philly has dumped too much stuff into the I-95 corridor and the area around the sports complex especially with bad access and egress from the stadia themselves. A complete mess.

    I wouldnt say that a complete mess,

    they do have all stadiums in 1 section only city to do that. you have 2 interstates, in a tristate area.

    Also close to airport, center city, train station, and you have a subway.

    also tons of parking so it is done well, but your right their will always be the heavy traffic, it sucks and it sucks that i95 that bridge to cross the water is right there.

    I always go with the subway it is the best way to travel. I park my car at a train station away from the stadium area.

    Just an FYI. We do not refer to freeways as ix; we just call them THE x, such as THE 5.. ;):D

    The plenty of parking is so there is room for all the cars to sit while waiting to get out.

    I'd hardly say it is two interstates there. 76 barely counts and getting on either is a mess as there is not a direct route out of the lots to the highways, particularly 95.

    It is the worst executed area I've been in except for FedEx field.

    It's best for spring afternoon baseball, when it is raining.
