1. If you hate the Yankees, and I know many of you love them, you will love this story.
With Aaron Judge sitting 60 home runs and chasing Roger Maris and the American League’s record of 61 home runs, fans who want to see the Yankees slugger in action will have to tune into Friday night’s game via AppleTV +.
The New York vs Boston game will not air locally in the New York market. The game will be available nationwide only on AppleTV +.
According to New York postAndrew Marchand, the Yankees are not satisfied with this. Marchand reports that the Yankees have asked MLB and Apple to allow the YES network to broadcast the game locally in New York.
So far, Apple has said no and good for Apple. Why would Apple, which paid MLB $ 85 million for the exclusive Friday night package, give up its most anticipated game of the season just to help the Yankees? The Yankees’ arrogance in even asking Apple to air the YES game isn’t shocking, though.
These are the same greedy Yankees who have such contempt for their fans that they have taken 20 games that have been broadcast on TV over the air for decades and sold them to Amazon Prime Video, forcing their fans to pay to stream those 20 games. , while said fans are already paying for the cable to get the YES network.
It’s such a delightful twist that the Yankees, worth $ 7 billion, have decided to steal totally worthless streaming money by selling 20 games to Prime Video, and now they may lose their most valuable game of recent years due to the streaming package. MLB.
It also proves that while everyone wants to tell you that streaming games are no different from watching cable games, it clearly isn’t true. The Yankees made no effort to get Thursday night’s game, which aired nationwide on Fox, on the YES Network.
The Yankees know that the audience for Friday night will be very limited.
Apple TV + reportedly has 20 to 40 million subscribers. In comparison, Amazon Prime, which now airs Thursday night of footballit reportedly has over 200 million subscribers.
YES enjoyed massive ratings for their recent broadcasts as fans tuned in to follow Judge’s home run golden manna,
And now the Yankees will miss the opportunity to attract another huge crowd on Friday because YES doesn’t have the game.
But it’s not about streaming or Apple TV + or ratings. This is the hypocrisy of the Yankees.
When they were taking Amazon Prime money and depriving fans of 20 free games, streaming was just plain dandy. But now that streaming will take away a game that would attract huge cable streams, the Yankees are looking to make their way.
Now, the Yankees will shoot this with statements about trying to get Friday’s game on YES for fans, but only a complete and utter fool would believe it.
2. Many people thought that the judge got the no. 61 Thursday night when he struck this shot.
One person who was not fooled, however, was the legendary John Sterling, 84, who called the sprint perfectly from the moment he left the bat on WFAN radio in New York.
