    Another reason to hate MLB: CTR game blogs clipped

    From C. Trent's blog

    and BREAKING NEWS...

    I will not be live blogging, because MLB is cracking down on giving you information. They don't want any competition for their gamecast. I will, however, update after every half-inning. I'll proabably still write live, just delay it. It's a battle of semantics, but I'm only doing what I'm told by my people at 1530Homer.com. I appologize. It seems MLB doesn't feel its content is good enough to go for a straight-up competition. I'll do what I can. And again, I'm sorry.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Wow, unbelievably stupid decision by MLB. Hasn't anybody explained to them that they should want an ecosystem around their games?

    wow lame
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    And the dumb continue to get dumber.

    Oh well, hopefully Trent can get away with delaying his postings by a few minutes.

    If MLB's out there looking for this stuff, don't be surprised if your favorite Reds message board gets a cease and desist letter about PBP in game threads. The best way to prevent that is to not do PBP. React, but don't describe.

    Looks like someone's been taking their cues from the RIAA.

    What an absurd demand.

    Maybe you could just put the word "Yay!" or "Boo!" in front of everything. As in:

    "Yay! A 2-0 count to Keppinger."

    "Boo! Arroyo just threw ball four."

    "Casual indifference! Corey Patterson just entered the game."

    I wonder if it would make a difference that this site is completely non-commercial. Probably not.

    Competition is competition. Whether a site profits from providing a service that competes with MLB.com is not likely to be something that would matter to MLB.com.

    Nice try, but no. That still competes with the descriptions and accounts of the game provided on MLB.com.

    Would that be a service that competes with MLB.com though?

    Hey Reds.com has a message board, should we be worried that RZ will be shut down because it's "competition" to the official board?
    Go Gators!
