Its about time they dumped Ch. 29. Having to watch the Sunday games in non-HD because the broacasters were too cheap to pay for it was absoltuely ridiculous.

With Keith Olbermann gone, the Twins are the only reason I pay for cable TV. I bet I'm not the only one. Comcast is probably quite aware of this.

Great! I really cannot afford to go to the Stadium (You know, the one that all of us in Hennepin County are paying for) So I was planning on watching a couple of games on over the air broadcast. I guess I will not be doing that either. Can I have some of my money back that went to finance the stadium? How bout just a free hotdog or something?

Good thing someone bought them a stadium just so they can now make you pay to watch the game in the comfort of your home. Way to go Twins!

The Twins have also announced that all games will be broadcast over ESPN 1500 radio as well. This means that if you are unable to watch the game your odds of listening to it in the Twin Cities are 50/50

Great. I helped buy their stadium. Now I have to subscribe to cable to watch them. Thanks a bunch.

Everyone wants a team that can beat the Yankees... its going to take a larger payroll... so pony up and start paying or quit complaining about loosing in the playoffs!

This is an issue? Really? I'm not rich, but I've never NOT had cable. I live outstate, would never be able to see them over-the-air anyway. I'm just glad to see them all in HD now. I really wish we could see the ESPN broadcast along with the local when the Twins are on (I'm waaaay over in the SW corner), it would be nice to hear an objective announcer every now and then.

The twins are the ONLY reason I have cable. If MLB.TV didn't blackout games, I would have gotten rid of it a long time ago.
