    Glad to have it, but you think they would've brought it out at the beginning of the season, not when it's almost over!

    Could have been a last minute decision to make it.

    But hey, it's not all bad! Now that they got it figured out, maybe they'll be ready to go with At Bat 14 at the beginning of the season. MLB must've decided they have enough clients to be worth it, and that number probably won't drop at least by April 2014.

    Yes. it is basically $20 a month (the price is reduced as the season progresses.) I haven't checked, but there are only 2 months left, should be able to get it for $30-$40. They normally run a playoff race package too. Last year I think I paid $10 for part of September (had to use the Wife's iPhone)

    I don't know of anything extra for playoffs. But I'm in the US; maybe it's different if you're in another country. The only way I know of to watch a playoff game in the US is to use a proxy on a PC to give you an IP address outside of North America. I tried location spoofer apps on both Android & iPhone, but the MLB app detects it. Audio is available with no blackouts for playoffs, including World Series games.

    Agreed, There is no way you can watch the playoffs on mobile unless you have a SlingBox or something similar. They do not (or have not) ever had a package for them since it is a completely different contract, the games are shown on Fox and TBS instead of the typical Fox Sports *Insert Blank* or MASN / YES / STO

    If you were directly references my comments, I mentioned the "playoff race", as in...the time leading up to the Playoffs to see who gets in (the last couple weeks of September)

    The Playoff Race should be pretty heated for the AL this year. The NL is all but locked up (Arizona only team with a chance at 5.5 back of the WC and 7.5 of the divsion)

    Sorry, I missed "race"! As a Milwaukee Brewers fan, I'm afraid I'm less interested this year than I could be, but my 2nd team is the Red Sox, so I'm in it there.

    Oh come on, don't be one of those fans that are only interested when their team win.

    Mine are the Astros and everyone knows how they are and I'm still a big fan and keep up on every game they play. I even picked up MLB.tv so I can watch my team win little and lose a lot.

    Oh I'm still interested; to be a Brewers fan you have to be hardy! It's the playoffs that don't interest me quite as much since the Brewers more than likely won't be in it. The Red Sox should be in it though.

    What do you think about moving to the AL? Before that happened we used to be rivals. I liked the Astros switch to make one less team in the NL Central, and it also gives all 6 divisions 5 teams.

    Amen to those that stick with there team! Love the down times, because you can get cheap seats! I loved when the Tigers were bad (02-04) because you could get a ticket for $8 and it came with a piece of pizza and pop.

    Granted...I am all about all about paying $30 a game and getting to watch my team in the World Series too! :-D

    Well the Astros held off the As tonight, so my Rangers were able to hang onto 1st for the time being. Thanks Astros!

    Can't beat the video though...and that is only offered in At Bat.

    I've kept Baseball Now as my statistics app, to get detailed box scores and news, and keep the At Bat as the video app. AND I keep ESPN Hub around for toast notifications... I used Baseball Pro but picked Baseball Now because I get the logo on the Tile...Baseball Pro just had a generic city name (IIRC).

    If only there was one app to rule them all!!!! That is my constant complaint though, haha. Anyone find one that will put a score on the live tile? Baseball Now does it, but you have to pin EACH game, EACH day, gets a little old...

    Ohh, and Miguel Cabrera is an absolute beast, we are watching history unfold with that man. That is all. :-D
