Possibly the most idiotic thing these clowns have ever done
See, i'm giving in and watching the Nationals and the Giants on ESPN 2 tonight, to see if Barry Bonds can break Hank Aaron's all-time home run record.
Well, i thought i was.
But, when i turned on the TV, what i got was Baseball Tonight on both ESPN and ESPN2.
So i called Time-Warner customer service. They say this is the feed they're getting, and it's not something that they've messed up. But it is perhaps a MLB decision to black out the game in this area.
ESPN doesn't have a full customer service staff (and why should they, to be honest) but the person i got through to tonight also doesn't have any idea why the game wouldn't be on in this area.
Can MLB really be that stupid? It's not like the Nationals are actually available on any local TV network or station. Hell, even the Orioles aren't covered on FSN South any more. Is anybody really losing the revenue that might have come from Durham folks driving up to DC to watch the game on a local broadcast?
I mean, come on Bud Selig, give me a break.
