Haven't owned a TV ever since I got a projector, but now that I'm back in the US I'd like to catch Oakland A's games on local broadcast. How to do this as cheaply as possible? [more inside]

A friend is trying to find a bar/place in Boston that is playing the A's game (or is an Oakland A's bar)...I know, I know...most are just playing the Red Sox, but you are all the intelligentsia of what's around, so figured I'd ask you!
Thanks a lot!

: I subscribe to MLB Gameday Audio. It has the streaming audio component, which I care about, and some replay ticker display thingy, which I don't. I have the audio on at an acceptable level, but then the commercials come on AND THEY'RE SUPER-FUCKING LOUD WHOA NELLY
. Is there any sort of damper I can install on my Mac to counter this? [more inside]

I'm not optimistic, but I would like to legally watch my home team play live baseball from my couch without paying for cable (cancelled cable 6 months ago.) MLB.TV apparently only provides access to out-of-market games (unless my home team is playing and then those are blacked out too.) [more inside]

We want to replace our cable TV with a Mac Mini. We watch mostly documentaries, cooking shows and cartoons. She loves cheesy horror movies, and I love baseball and pro football. Apart from Netflix, what do we need to live cable-free?

In MLB, if a pinch hitter enters the on-deck circle to warm up, but the side is retired before he actually gets up to bat, does the team still have to go through with the substitution? Or can they 'back out'? [more inside]

What time will the first pitch of the 2009 MLB All-Star game be? Television broadcasts start at 8 pm EST, but there will be player introductions, ceremonies, and President Obama's toss. I'd like to know the actual time the first pitch of the game will be at. Thanks.

Wife, kid and I are going to Boston in mid-April for the Marathon, and we'd like to take in a Red Sox game since kid is a huge fan. We are not regular MLB ticket purchasers though. Should we buy tickets now at 2X list price from a broker, or wait until closer to game day and hope the price drops? Are weekdays less likely to sell out? (teams on the schedule are Rangers and Angels, and it's Marathon weekend).

So, it's October; I'm in Denver, and for the first time ever, the World Series could come to the mountains. My question is as follows:
1. When will World Series tickets go on sale?
2. How do I find out how much they'll be?
I'd like to take a lady friend and her son to a game. Can anyone help?

Listening to the game...I'd like to listen to the World Series online - sure, I could tune in the "home of the Cardinals", KMOX, but um, yeah, I don't have an AM receiver in the house. I just noticed this (that I don't have AM). Anyone know of a *free* site to stream ballgames?
