    IN Demand said Wednesday it will offer to match the terms of DirecTV's $700 million, seven-year deal with Major League Baseball on behalf its owners, who are affiliates of the companies that own Time Warner, Comcast and Cox cable systems.

    Thats is a load of cash for MLB!

    Will this affect D* EI? Can this deal even pass? I thought D* would have all the rights to these games. Didn't cable have a chance to step up and match the offer already? Why so late?

    I cant believe they are getting away with this crap. The FCC is so damned concerned if a swear word is used or a boob pops out but they allow this to go on. Maybe I am just pissed off because I am a baseball fanatic and watch just about every NY Mets game since I retired. I had been using my sisters address in CT to get the NY are teams but switched my address to NC when I upgraded myu equipment. I wasnt too upset doing it because I figured I'd just pay for extra innings. Its so frigging hard trying to be a baseball fan these days. Probably the best team ever on earth for their fans are the Braves on free TBS or the Cubs on FREE wgn.
