  1. not a blurb, but found amusing in yahoo's box score, nonetheless.
  2. I'm sure it is hard for some people to be patient when they are paying for a service. MLB.TV requires their payment upfront, so for some folks they would expect the service to work properly when the season starts. this. be patient? we pay $170. this is the umpteenth year mlb.tv is running, so you expect them to have their sh*t together from the get go. this isn't a new product. and also opening week is what everyone has been anticipating all winter...it's arguably their most important week of the season.
  3. yeah u nailed it...it's the best out and it still brings me a tonnn of joy lol so i'm not going to not shell the money. that being said, 3 years ago, it was live live, in sync. that was when there was that next def thingy, so not sure what's happened since. also the PIP stuff i'm talking about where it basically kills both videos when toggling, or loading the PIP, this also never used to happen so it's def annoying. ah well, still a solid product.
  4. Dont have Gameday up on that game. except if you've ever used gameday along the top shows every game and men on base, outs, score etc. so it becomes a game of hiding the game you're watching which means when you want to check other box scores you're basically just trying not to look at your game as you go. not the best solution you see..
  5. i'm pretty frustrated with this product, yet again. i keep re-upping b/c i don't know if there's a comparable product out there. but my main problems are 1) this was the case last year too, but it's not LIVE, it's delayed a minute or so. so if you happen to have say mlb gameday open, that could ruin it for you. also the player tracker feature seems to be more LIVE than the actual video, so b/c I have for example Bogaerts and Betts on my fantasy team and they are close in batting order, I see Betts notification pop up that he's now on deck, and there's an out, so I know Bogaerts got out before the video actually shows me such. so annoying. 2) whenever i bring up a split screen option or picture in picture, the original video rebuffers, and often jumps ahead to a closer to LIVE feed. this happens whenever i toggle between the 2 feeds. ultra annoying. there are other things, but those are the most annoying. anyone know any solutions?
  6. ^^ love the weeknd. one of the few artists i can honestly say i can listen to entire discography and enjoy it front to back without needing to skip anything. extremely rare for me. speaking of things OVO this gem dropped today. this might just be my favourite track of the year. not a whole lot of lyrical value, but the sound, the beat, the vocals...i'm in love. if you enjoy the weeknd you'll probably enjoy this too. http://octobersveryown.blogspot.ca/2014/08/ilovemakonnen-tuesday-feat-drake.html?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed
  7. CBS must have their own DL since he never went on Major League Baseball's DL..
  8. Singleton grounded out next. then there was a strikeout. either way it was kinda BS b/c altuve was out by a mile if there was no throwing error. bad luck there.
  9. CBS must hire their blurb writers from the same pool Rotoworld does.. at least they didn't stick with the outfielder theme throughout it's entirety, although that would have been awesome.
  10. i'd have no problem listening to this beat on loop for an entire week straight.. "and if i had a time machine, i'd probably use it like a vacuum and try to clean"
  11. i don't know i've been watching for a few years and don't recall a time delay. we're not referring to "laggyness" ie. "choppyness", but the fact that all video is following like a 60 second time delay (seems to be about 3 pitches or so give or take). but yeah don't ever remember this, personally.
  12. yeah this has been really annoying. everything else is great. so you're saying with the old player, it's live, but we lose DVR capabilities? I actually like the DVR so if I missed a great play from one of my guys i can go into the game and rewind. also last year i had some problems that were really annoying. example, lets say i open the tigers game, and i want to switch to dodgers game, well that was fine, until i wanted to switch back to tigers game, and it just would never let me. it wouldn't load, and i'd have to close program (losing my picture in picture games etc) and load tigers game. this year that problem is no longer, and i can toggle through games repeatedly in any order, multiples times back to same game etc. so i'm loving the new version this year, but this time delay might be too much for me to bear. like you, i frequent box scores and mlb gameday as i'm watching, and this becomes frustrating when trying to avoid key information that's already taken place. I've found that if you run that player without NexDef installed, it plays everything live and without delay - but no DVR. If you run the link with NexDef installed, you have the DVR but the delay is back. I have to think this is an issue they're trying to work out with the new player. No minute amount of visual improvement is worth a 30-second+ delay. What is NexDef (forgive my lack of tech-savyness). Was that the thing on last player that let you watch in multiple different quality of picture? like 5 levels or something? or is it the DVR capability? I can't watch the baseball if it's blurry or not in HD. i can but i'd probably rather the 40 second delay. but i would have to imagine they MUST fix this issue soon as i cannot see ppl being too happy about this delay. i can't imagine this was the end-game plan for them.

  14. yeah this will become very annoying if this persists all year. i basically can't look at box scores as i'm watching b/c mlb.tv is well behind real time.
