    MLB On XM Internet Radio??

    I have XM radio just for the Reds. I miss going to games and watching games on tv that I had to do something. MLB games are not broadcast on xmradio.com and was wondering if this is true or if there is a way to get them over the net using my XM subscription?

    Unfortunately it is true. On the .com portion you don't get the games, nor do you even get XM-175, the main baseball discussion channel.

    If you'd like to launch an email jihad to get the baseball channel on xm.com I'll gladly join in because I think it should be on there. The games I can understand since baseball has its own package for that end.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    The reason XM 175 is not on the internet is during the games they play portions of the games and that would violate MLB's contract.

    Major League Baseball broadcast rights are as archaic as the self-propelled non-engined lawn mower.

    Even the NFL allows ESPN to show highlights during the games on ESPN News.

    Dumb. Really Dumb.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Oh I totally understand that, thats why I said if people wanted to petition to have it added I'd be all for it. The small segments of games they have live is really no different than an extended highlight, so in my opinion its stupid to allow that to prevent the channel from being online.

    But XM has a contract with MLB to telecast games. The slogan is " Everyteam, Wherever You Are" whats the diffence if they can broadcast games on radio and broadcast music.. but you can only listen to the music portion online?

    I found this out early on. I got a home kit for my Roady 2 and set it up in my room near the TV and the computer. It works fine except when I forgot to take the radio back to the car, so I bought a second Roady for the house. It's an extra 9.95 per month, but come October, i'll retire it until next baseball season.

    I was just on MLB with Dibble and Kennedy. Casey followed right after me. Those guys are fun.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Didn't get to hear TC. Aside from DRays, what was your discussion about?

    Of course, you gave a shameless plug for RedsZone, yes?

    No plug but I did have it written down. I just couldn't gt it in. We just discussed late 80's Reds baseball. I have been on before. Actually 7 or 8 times. I brought up a story about Dibble plunking Eric Yelding and then Tim Teufel. Dibbs did a great job of giving you the who, what, when, where, why... nice job.

    You were the one asking Dibbs about the brawl in 89?

    Good call, had me smiling. For as much flack (and many times rightly so) that Dibble gets for his on air talents, on XM I think he is very solid.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Yep. That was me. I talked to Dibbs off the air, we were having a good laugh.
