    Hello, Everyone!

    As you have probably guessed I'm a Houston Astros fan at heart. I have loved the Astros since day one and they will always be number one team. Saying that, I am glad to tell you guys that my second favorite team, and only other team I like, is the Yankees. I love the players and what the Yankees do for baseball. I strongly feel that baseball wouldn't be what it is today without the Yanks. My favoriate player is Alex Rodriguez, and has been since his days in Seattle (one of the rare 'fans' who liked him last season). I do live in Houston so I unfortunately don't get your 'YES' channel! I'm sure not many of you share the love for the Astros as I do, but I'm sure most of us can relate to loving the Yankees. It's nice to be here and I'm glad I found a educated fan base I can call home.


    Any other questions feel free to ask!

    Welcome to the forum. I'm in Virginia and don't get YES either but get virtually all the games on MLB.tv. Have you tried that?

    Sure have. I have MLB.tv and almost every game is blacked out.. I barely get any more games than I did without it.

    I'm in Northern Virginia and the only Yankee games that are blacked out are when they play the Nationals or the Orioles. And we get all Oriole games on MASN anyway.

    Do you have DirectTV. I understand you can get the Yankee games on that?

    Welcome Astroholic. It's always good to hear opinions from other fans.
    I may not have been the best Yankee to put on the pinstripes, but I am the proudest.

    He's been moved out of the closing job for nearly three weeks. Wheeler took over.

    Welcome. Maybe you should try Extra Innings on cable to get to see the games.
