Independence Day Special or Mistake, Who Cares? MLB Premium On Sale!

Recommended Posts

Fired up the AppleTV to watch the video clips of Orlando Arcia scoring from 1B on an infield single and escaping from a 3B-HP rundown (this had to be good!) to discover that the Orioles vs. Brewers game is the Featured Free Game of the Day. When prompted to login (I just have a lapsed, standard account), I noticed that the cost for a Year's Subscription is... only $19.99!!! The monthly is $24.99. This may have been a misprint, but I took a shot, and sure enough, I was charged $19.99 for the rest of the year of premium baseball coverage.

Happy Independence Day! Watch some baseball!

Why would you buy a whole year when he'll only be a Brewer through the end of the month?

Arcia is not getting traded.

 

Def not a mistake, but I thought their special for the 4th was 20.17, that's what I've seen everywhere the last few days.

I've been a Brewer fan for 37 years. I wouldn't hold my breath that he's around in August.

Well, you guys are re-building. That means you want young, controllable talent. You convert short-term assets into long-term assets. He debuted last year, so you have another season before he even reaches arbitration. Then, you have 3 years of arbitration before he becomes a free agent.

 

Unless they get overwhelmed with an offer, he's not moving.

 

I think it's along the lines of probably 300:1 odds. There's just no justification for it.
