    MLB.tv seems to have only audio, not video, for today's game.

    One of these days I'll make the roadtrip to see them play elsewhere. Port Charlotte would probably be the easiest to get to.

    The Rays broadcast schedule for the entire month of March only shows an MLBN (delay) game @ Boston on 3/23 and Sun Sports broadcasts on 3/25 and 3/26.

    Really sparse coverage. Kind of goes along with their crowds at home.

    Do they not have regular coverage? Look at this:

    Red Sox isn't too long a trek to see them play elsewhere either.

    From what I've heard about getting out of the parking lot at JetBlue Park, I'd probably get home from Port Charlotte faster.

    Rays announcers refer to Diamond inducing a DP as being due to pitch-to-contact.

    And then they go on to anoint Hicks as the likely leadoff hitter when the season starts, despite today's lineup looking for all the world like the opening day lineup if Gardy's wish comes true with Kubel.

    As you might know, my family is boycotting the stadium in Port Charlotte. We still approve of Stone Crabs.

    If you still like stone crabs, then why are you boycotting the stadium??? (of course, I don't like what they did to the Miracle in the playoffs last September)

    On a more serious note, consider the Phillies winter home in Clearwater. It is really easy to get to and Brighthouse (?) Field is very nice. It's probably at least a half hour longer drive, but it is pretty.

    No radio for me.



    On the plus side, that means no Gladden either.

    There's also the O's in Sarasota ... I've been by that stadium before as I have friends up there, but have never been to a game.
