MLB Network

I love baseball.

I don't trust MLB...or any other professional sports organization to report on itself.

Baseball has now launched its own television network, and I'm one of the 145 fans watching at any given moment. It's cool. It's raw. It's not smooth or slick in the way that ESPN is. I like it.

Nonetheless, I acknowledge that what's happening here is importantly different for major league baseball fans. If we start relying on MLB to report on MLB, we're in trouble.

So, as much as I enjoy the MLB network, it's important that we continue to support independent channels of information about MLB.

Otherwise, we'll lose our love.
