If you have a smart phone and reception, the MLB At-Bat app is $19.99/year or $2.99/mo for access to radio broadcasts of all games. Mondays-Wednesdays I'm not done working until the games are at least half over, so I find that easily worth it.I think games should be easier to access, rule changes, especially limiting the dead time will help, but I'm a sox fan in NH. I don't have cable, and its a 2+ hour drive to a game. I'm blacked out of any way to watch the games except paying for an expensive monthly cable/online package that I wouldn't use for anything else. I like the sox, but $70+ a month to watch them isn't going to happen.
I make do with radio (also sometimes difficult because of blackouts/poor reception, and I don't actually own a radio anymore so this is really a car only option) and internet highlights, I used to watch 100+ games a year, go to a couple and pay a lot more attention. The last several years I just haven't been able to because it's such a pain. As a result my son never got interested and now focuses on other things.
