While Scott Boras still works on a deal for Manny, baseball fans can take heart,'s streaming package has dropped its upfront costs $10 for next season, plus HD streaming and "Live Game DVR Functionality", so you can rewind and fast forward -- but only during the game. Throw in picture-in-picture and live chat features and it looks like the switch from Silverlight to Flash is paying off, at least on paper. We're trying to find an argument against lower price and more features that doesn't have to do with the Yankees and Red Sox trying to buy a title every offseason, but we're coming up blank.
