Can't any of you cheapskates pony up for MLB.TV?

For people in Minnesota, all the Twins games are blacked out on MLB.tv for the live broadcasts. Could watch them after the fact, but if you're in a team's market area, you cannot watch their games live on MLB.tv

Deduno looks confident out there.

His little 89 mph fastball seems to move like Felix's changeup sometimes.

I have no excuses for many things. However... I'm proud to say that Grand Forks is Twins Territory!!!

I'm glad you brought that up. I have worked on projects throughout ND, a nicer and more industrious citizenry I have yet to meet.

I have a question I have always been meaning to ask you: Given your state's new found Oil-based prosperity and the muscle-flexing that comes with that boom wealth, what are the chances that the Twins could partner with the State of ND, Fargo and Grand Forks, purchase a sickly franchise like the Las Vegas 51's and move it to your state? Much closer to the mother-franchise and a natural fan-fit. Put a new stadium on the Interstate between your towns, and you could call them the Fargo-Grand Forks 29's. Or resurrect the Fighting Sioux nickname...

The demographics for the 2 metro areas combined is close to 275,000, so it seems within the realm of financial possibility.

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

As an in-market fan, that wouldn't do me much good. :P

Don't mean to speak for RB, but I would think the scarcity of air travel options would be one issue.

But Chief, there's Fargo, Bismarck, and Minot International Airport.

A quick check of GF Int'l shows 5 departures today, 3 airlines, to 4 destinations.

There's about 20 departures from Rochester today, 7 airlines, to most major hubs east of the Mississippi.

Edit: 60 departures, not 20.

Las Vegas is struggling with over a million in the same geographic range.

I'd love to see minor league ball up here but it would have to be A ball and Fargo/Moorhead has the better population base.

AAA markets can draw 10,000 a game. The Redhawks in Fargo draw 3,000... Plus you have to consider corporate sponsorships. Motivated Owners and The building of a stadium that generates income.

Hillsboro wouldn't be able to support that.
