    Brian Jordan and Paul Byrd won't be back doing Braves games for Bally. I enjoyed the work of both of those guys.
    Bally has fucked it up for viewers of Braves and Hornets viewing.

    Grissom and Shewmake both SS were optioned down to the minors and Arcia looks to be the season opening SS.
    Arcia had the worst camp out of those three.
    Makes no sense.

    I’m not sure what their beef is with Grissom but there’s definitely something they ain’t telling us.


    My favorite sports Jew strained a hammy.

    Hell, even Shewmake I thought had a better spring than Arcia.
    My only concern with Snit's chosen starting pitchers is Morton.
    He wasn't all that great last year and he ain't getting any younger.
    Grissom will be starting before the AllStar break.

    I don’t know that Snit makes those decisions.

    If I was manager at a company and my future depended on my production numbers and then someone with a higher pay grade started transferring some of my better people to other branches I would concerned that they want me to fail.
    Then again I'd be one paranoid manager.
    I can't watch games because of the MLB.com blackout rules so I watch clips on youtube.
    Riley has digressed defensively and looks to be struggling at third.
    Ole'ing ground balls is not a key to success.

    It looks like wunderkind Shuster had real bullet jitters in his first test and got shelled.

    You can’t buy some sort of package so you can watch the games?

    Since Bally owns this regional network area MBL.com can't offer this part of NC as a package.
    Some sort of a marketplace blackout rule.
    The only way I see is having a service that would include Bally in their programming.
    I went 100% streaming two years ago and I'm not going back to the cord.

    "You can get Bally Sports through a variety of streaming services, including fuboTV, AT&T TV NOW, and Hulu + Live TV. If you’re a diehard fan of a particular team, you can also find Bally Sports regional channels on YouTube TV and AT&T TV.

    What Devices Are Compatible with Bally Sports?
    Bally Sports is available on a wide variety of streaming devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, and more. You can also watch Bally Sports on your computer or mobile device via the Bally Sports app."

    Those services would cost as much as a cable package especially when you start adding in extras such as Bally Sports.

    Shuster gets sent down to the minors.
    I guess they didn't like what they saw in his only start.
