So it's official that MLB will play a full 162 game 2021 season (hopefully) with spring training starting February 16.

Second order of business. Is anyone interesting in a fantasy league this year? I've run them in the past but the league lost interest. Would do an 8-10 person league. Could push it to 12.

I'm debating weather getting the MLB package will be worth it this year ...
I don't expect much from the Red Sox or the Astros ... :(
I got it last year and it's just not the same without the fans in the stands, even with the simulated fan noise.

Sad to see Andrew Benintendi, another one of the 2018 World Champion Red Sox go. With all due respect to Dwight Evans and Tom Brunansky, thank you for the greatest catch in Red Sox history, 10D

If you have T-Mobile, you get it for free.

So where is everyone planning on watching their teams on TV? Here in Arizona and I assume everywhere else, Bally Regional Sports Net (FSNs) has the exclusive rights via Sinclair. And only ATT, $84.99, has signed a contract with Sinclair. No cable companies, no Dish Network, DirecTV, YouTube, Sling, Hulu etc.

Streaming MLB TV. That's what I'm using to watch the Reds, but the way they played in spring training maybe not so much.:mad:

One thing MLB HAS to do ...
If they are allowing fans in the stands now, which all are (percentages allowed ).
They have to remove the ability to pump the stadium with crowd noise.

Prime example, The Astros are opening in Oakland, they are allowing 9,000 fans ...
When certain players come up, it sounds like a full house ... way too obvious.

I understand, they want to boo Astros players, and thats fine, but you can't pump in crowd noise like that when theres only 9,000 in the stands.
