I missed a Waino gem AND there were no commercials?

Damn you, Diablo. For more reasons than this.

The Dodgers-Diamondbacks game had the same problems. The feed would disappear leading to a "Technical Difficulties" graphic. There were no commercials (you just heard the sounds of the ballpark in those situations). At one point, AZ viewers got switched to the LA feed. Of course, that meant we were treated to some Vin Scully which even this Dodger hater can appreciate.

Baseball fans are too dumb to figure out when an inning is over without commercials?

No kidding. Dick Enberg instead of Al Hrabosky? Thought I'd died and gone to heaven last night.

Like most of life's problem, this could be solved with adult diapers.

Just go between innings.

The clients who bought advertising time in that game have to be mighty pissed...

This happened during the Rangers game as well. I turned in late and thought something notable had happened, and they were sticking with the game until it got sorted out. Then they started playing and it took me a bit to figure out that there were no commercials.

No. I think the pee-problem was more on the broadcasters than the viewers, despite the headline.

It's baseball. It's not like there's non-stop action if it weren't for commercial breaks.

I'm sure you could easily take a whiz, get a beer and cook a steak mid inning while not missing anything.

This happened during the Astros/Cubs game on Monday. It was chock full of awesome.

I saw it during the braves game and wondered what was going on, it was great.

I'm sure you could easily take a whiz, wash your car, take a nap, fap, get a beer and cook a steak mid inning while not missing anything.

Now, if only the main Fox network could do the same this coming Sunday evening.

That's why I'm glad to have Directv Hotpass. I can keep up with what's going on during those ads. Of course, I knew Junior ran out of gas 10 seconds before anyone who wasn't watching that feed did.
