I agree with this article: MLB’s blackout policy is ridiculous.
I live six and a half hours from RFK Stadium, yet Washington Nationals games are blacked out for me. Not that it matters much to me; I live much closer to Cincinnati, and Reds games are not blacked out. It’s only irritating when Cincinnati is playing the Nationals.
Frankly, where I live, there should be no blackouts. I’m far enough from any major league park that I can’t just decide to take in a game after work. I should be able to watch them on television if I am going to pay for the Extra Innings package.
