Can you give me the website I can get live podcasts of MLB games???

The merger is a bad idea, well unless you have millions of shares of stock.

ok, a podcast is typically pre-recorded to be played later for later playback on an MP3 player. Thus the term podcast: pod = ipod, the most popular mp3 player cast = short for broadcast

How does a "live podcast" differ from a "live Internet broadcast?"

Maybe not podcasts, but certainly streaming audio of the games at www.MLB.com

I see Chapter 11 in the future either way the merger goes. Merging will just delay the inevitable. That is about the only positive besides having all sports and talk in one place eventually. I'm sure new equipment would be required to take advantage of both.

The negatives greatly outweigh the positives on this one. Not a single positive is more important then making sure there is a direct competitor to keep the monthly fees in check.

my two cents,
scooby
