Major League Baseball has made the asinine decision to carry the MLB Extra Innings package exclusively on DirectTV this season. In previous seasons, I could purchase the package on cable and watch my Red Sox at home all season long. But since I live in a north-facing apartment in a walkup building in New York City, where a satellite dish is not only an impractical investment but literally impossible to install, I will have to go elsewhere to watch the games: a bar with DirectTV.
I know I’m not the only one in this situation. So, I suggest that we baseball fans all bill Bud Selig for the massive bar tabs that we will run up over the course of the 162-game season.
