I took your advise and just called them. They offered MLB for $39.99/month or $199.00 up front. The person on the phone was nice but offered little help. I'm going to call Comcast and see what they have to offer. I'll either go with them or go w/o baseball this season. I won't pay $200 for something that should be included. We have gotten freebees in the past - most recently, free Stars for 6 months last august. It was offered to me when they billed me for HD erroneously as I had automatic bill pay, etc.
