Boycott MLB Network

As a baseball and Tigers fan, I'm suggesting that no one sign up for the MLB Network in response to the league failing to show Sunday's A's-Tigers game on free TV. It is being shown on the MLB Network, which isn't available on Widen Open West, the cheaper of the two main cable channels in many Macomb towns.
MLB obviously wants to force people to sign up for its network. I hope it backfires on them.
To those who say, "It's a business. They can do what they want."  It's not a business. MLB is almost like a public utility since it has a legal monopoly via an anti-trust exemption from Congress.
I suggest keeping tabs the old fashioned way, on radio. Dickerson and Price do a pretty good job.
