Ramblings about the Braves by True Braves Fans
I think the offense is finally on track. The Braves haven’t been shutout since the game on 5/7 against Jamie Moyer. Since then we’ve played 13 games and only lost 3 (3-5 on 5/9, 1-11 on 5/15, and 2-3 on 5/17) and the Arizona game is the only one of those that can be considered a blow out.
Last night’s game was another example of how things are looking much better. Our offense looked good. continued to perform well, Hinske had another solid game, McCann hit a homer, and Chipper even got on base (twice), once with a hit and an RBI.
Anyway, as I’ve mentioned previously, tonight’s game will not be on television. If you live in the metro Atlanta area, you should be able to get the game on Rock 100.5 or 680 the Fan. Of course you wont be able to listen online via those (or any other) radio stations because MLB forces online blackouts of all the games so they can sell more subscriptions to their own online audio package. I do know that you can get the audio for a single game for a lower price though if you want to get it just for today.
I’ll actually be listening on my iPhone. I bought the mlb app early in the season. It was $15.00, but I thought it was worth it to be able to listen to the afternoon games at work, listen while I am out walking, or otherwise in a situation where I don’t have access to a radio or tv.
One thing I have not looked into is whether or not the game will be available online via mlb.tv. Normally it would be blacked out in the Atlanta area, but I don’t know if that applies to games not being televised or played in the Atlanta area. I also don’t know if Fox’s exclusivity agreement applies to online broadcasts or not either. If it is available, I’m pretty sure they still offer the ability to purchase a single game as well.
For those of you outside the reach of the stations listed above, check out the list of stations in the Brave’s Radio Network. If you are in the South East, there is a good chance you’ll be able to pick up the game. I’ve added links for the two stations I mentioned, as well as the list of stations in the Brave’s Radio Network to the list on the right side for future reference.
