Shilling (not Curt) for MLBAM

shill(shĭl) n. - One who poses as a satisfied customer or an enthusiastic gambler to dupe bystanders into participating in a swindle.

shill·ing v. - To act as a shill.

As was mentioned at the end of the "Baseball Begins Wednesday" diary, our first spring training games is slated to be Webcast on Gameday Audio at MLB.com (run by MLB Advanced Media [MLBAM])

On Friday, our spring training game against the Padres is scheduled to appear in Live Video (I assume anchored by the Padres TV broadcast team). According to the site itself - no blackout restrictions will apply to the game (finally).

For those of you that already have MLB.TV or Gameday Audio, the above serves as a reminder. For those of you who don't, it might serve as a call to action.

For as little as $15, you can grab a yearly subscription to Gameday Audio (great if you're on dial-up) or you can get 1 month of Spring Training MLB.TV and watch and listen to all the games being broadcast. Of course, you could go all in (perhaps with a few friends) and purchase the yearly MLB.TV premium for $120 and guarantee a seat to every game in the majors, with the exception of Los Royales in season if you're within their broadcast territory(blackout restrictions...). </shilling>

There are drawbacks to the service (can't easily watch on your television, broadcast lag, crazy blackout restrictions [good luck Iowa]) - so I don't want you to pad David Glass's pocket book if you don't see value in it.

If you can't tell - I just can't wait for 2:05 CT today.

Have a good day Royals fans!
