It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Off Base Since 2005! Mets commentary from the counter-intuitive to the unintuitive and all the intuitives in between. ** "Through the use of humor and gross inaccuracy...a certain truth can be gained." Rob Perri ** (pester me or follow me @itsmetsforme on twitter)

"Say it Ain't So": Mlb Direct TV deal Update

Sandomir has an update in today's NY Times, here.

Basically, there is sort of some hope for fans:
The FCC will be looking into the deal.
Many teams are wrapped up in big Cable companies, and the owners will at some point have to OK the deal.

I don't agree with Sandomir that the possibility that the exclusivity of the deal might be shortened in length (to three seasons) gives fans any warm feelings. It's like if your wife only has an affair for a few years.

    The Times story was pretty interesting, but I gave up and fired Comcast. I now have DirecTV. You gotta do what you gotta do.
