All NESN, all the time

Good news just in from - the MLB.TV subscription is now going to allow users to choose which feed they watch.

First reaction: YEAH!

Second reaction: About bloody time! I never understood why, with all the technical capabilities out there, I was forced to watch the home team feed for every game.

Third reaction: No more Michael Kay / Ken Harrelson / (insert name of crap announcer)!

I'm not going to put all announcers in the same basket. There are some broadcast teams I enjoy listening to - the Orioles, the Tigers (for the genius that is Rod Allen) - but on any given day, I'd rather be listening to NESN - Sox Appeal, RemDawg plugs and all - than any other broadcast team.
