MLB TV

I found out that I have the channel through Direct TV, channel 213.

Thus far, I have found it to be mediocre and lacking quality programming (durrrrr, its the offseason).  Anyway, they had a re-run of the 2008 Home Run Derby, and I didn't realize how controversial the comments during the event really were!  From Boomer rambling on and on about nothing, to Peter Gammons making some well hidden political comments to Joe Morgan saying "this stage" 15 times in one minute while talking to Reggie Jackson, the event had very colorful commentating.

There was also a snippet later on that night about the NL Central and each team's New Year Resolution.  When they came to the Cards, the commentators had neither a positive or negative thing to say about the Redbirds, save that they weren't that impressive, had a lot of heart, and Tony needed to fix his pitching....oh, and while they talked about this, a collection of Pujols footage was playing.  They seem to be taking an ESPN stance towards the Cards right now.

The biggest thing I am looking forward to though is on Saturday, when they are showing Game 7 against the Mets in 06'!!  I'm pretty sure that they are showing the whole game, and not cuts of it like on FSN.  This is particularly wonderful as I have wanted to see the reactions of Mets fans as commentated by Joe Buck after the game is over.  Anyone remember the daughter crying in her crying father's arms?  That was a brilliant but sad picture.  If they do not show the whole game, I will be greatly disappointed, but I think I can get over it.
