According to its website, the channel will cover everything from baseball news and trade rumors, show classic games, and provide professional analysis. In addition, they claim... "It (MLB Network)will be on the air 24/7/365, and it gradually will morph into whatever fans dictate that it must be. No other sports cable network is more suited for its subject, given baseball's seemingly endless summers, its incomparable tradition (look for Don Larsen's 1956 World Series perfect game on Opening Night) and its highly active offseasons. It will bring the latest TV technology, marquee talent, energy and passion."
This all sounds good to me, I just hope it doesn't suck and keeps the East Coast bias chugging along....because if I have to sit through Pittsburgh Pirate news before hearing about the Red Sox or AL East, I'm going to change the channel. Baseball 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year....this could be great. For now I'll attempt to keep my potential wedding day on target and phase myself into it.
.... I should also mention that the MLB Network will have to go a long way to tear me away from NESN and Heidi Watney come February/March.
