  1. I like the DirecTV deal:

    1) It is a TV deal that makes money that is evenly distributed to the ML teams, much like the National Deal.

    2) It will drive more teams to the MLB streaming video (Which I used at the end of last year and loved!!).

    3) I will get crap for this, but Bud Selig will go down as a great commissioner because:

    -He has restored Labor peace.
    -We have had 7 different WS champs (and 11 pennant winners) in 7 years of this decade.
    -Most importantly, he got the MLB owners to sign all of the Internet rights over to MLB who distributes those revenues evenly to all of the teams. This is going to continue to be a growing source of income.

  2. correction:

    comment 2 should say it will “drive more fans”

  3. If you’re a fan using streaming video, won’t more fans using it hurt you? Or are you saying more fans using it will force them to up its quality?

  4. The thing I like above MLB.tv is you can watch 6 games at once. The quality should improve with time.

  5. But the point is..what is $3 million a team a year???? NOTHING. Why not have ALL possible media outlets available? I have no problem with streaming the video on MLBTV, but it just makes NO sense for MLB to do this.
