    But why in the hell was that game not on live. Turned the tv on at 6:00 am to see it, and the MLB had a spring training game from the day before on.

    I guess they did show it at 9:00 am but that is just plain stupid.

    I understand MLB's desire to play in non-US markets. It makes a HELLEVA lot more sense than the NFL doing it. But not showing the games from over there and it being opening day was just weird.

    I agree 100%. Not 'marketed' properly here and not being a live broadcast was dumb as chit.

    Not to mention the games being a flippin' WEEK before the rest of MLB gets started...

    No logic to this at all..

    Pretty sure, but not 100% sure that was the way to get the players to go along with it.

    They didn't want to start the season off super jet lagged, it's hard to ever recover from that with the grind of the baseball season.
