    MLB.tv has awful blackout restrictions for regular season games. I’d gladly fork over $120 each year to watch my team, but I’m not able to, so why bother?

    You realize what you’re saying, though: a lot of blackouts means infrequent sold-out games. Sounds fair to me if a team isn’t good enough to sell out their own park.

      You’re thinking of the NFL which, with its 16 game schedule, is understandable. Baseball teams play 162 games. It’s not fair to expect each and every one of those to be sold out. Even if they are, MLB doesn’t let me watch my team. For example, I follow the Phillies and live in the Philadelphia metro area. Every one of their home games was sold out last year, and yet I am not able to watch them through MLB.tv. Even if they are playing on the West Coast and are outside of the Philadelphia market, I am not allowed to watch them online. It’s ridiculous.
