• MLB Network Priming The Pump

    Posted by on February 5th, 2013 · Comments (5)

    I’ve been watching a lot of Hot Stove, MLB Tonight, Intentional Talk, and Clubhouse Confidential lately. And, I have to say, it’s primed my pump.

    I am always excited about baseball. But, I am more excited now than I have been in a long time. I am really looking forward to this season. I wish it was starting tomorrow.

      They really have done an A+ job since going on the air. Is there any channel that is better?

      @ Corey:
      Nope. I hardly watch ESPN any more. I never watch SNY any more. I only watch YES for the games. And, I have on the MLB Network all the time now.

      Wish they’d give us more vintage games in their entirety and spare us the “Top Ten Team Bat Boys Right Now” type fluff.

      But other than that, not much to complain about. Getting Costas on board from the get go was a coup & the network heads were smart in getting the cable & satellite ducks lined in a row from day one as well.

      I don’t mind the Top Ten stuff. And, I sorta like the Prime Nine ones. And, the Countdown shows are sometimes interesting.

      I saw a replay of one the other day – the Top 75 homer robbing catches. It was amazing how someone remembered some of those and they could get the footage.

      The countdown shows can be interesting, but the MLBN is handcuffed a bit in that regard because a lot of that pre-1980s footage wasn’t preserved, so if say, Roy White made a game saving HR robbery type catch in 1971, there is no video or film of it.

      That’s where the NFL was miles ahead of MLB with NFL Films & their archives. Even though MLB did World Series films for ages, they really didn’t follow the NFL’s lead in that regard until the late 70s & early 80s.
