For Christmas this year, I unexpectedly received a Kindle Fire HD from my wife. She knew I always wanted an e-reader because I was interested in using the reader to rent library books. Well, turns out the fully loaded e-reader was on sale, so now I spend little time reading books from the library, and most of my time watching movies, listening to the radio and playing with the apps.
Since I have a desk job, I am (un)fortunate enough to have the ability to listen to the radio while I work. For a brief moment, I toyed with the thought of getting the MLB Premium package for my Kindle Fire. I could watch any game I wanted, whether on my tablet or on my Blu-Ray player at home. Problem is that I am one cheap SOB. You know, they guy who waits for your package to arrive so I can reuse it to send cards back to you (not always, but I like it when my trade partner sends the same packaging back that I sent first).
Ok, so it's established that I have a firm grip on my dimes. This is a problem if I want to get the MLB Premium mobile package because it's $120+ for the season. Hmm. Umm. How about no.
So, as a work-around, I've downloaded the MLB At-Bat Lite version for my Kindle Fire, which is free, gloriously free. I can follow scoreboards and box-scores at the drop of a dime (whoops, better pick up that dime). I can watch the "Free Game of the Day," too. Which I think is a good way to diversify my baseball following (not just Padres and Rays).
Not satisfied with this set-up, I also downloaded I Heart Radio. Now I can have the box score up and listen to the market radio broadcast. I can stream WDAE and listen the Rays while I work. I've even bookmarked some of the team's AM radio stations on I Heart Radio, so I can listen to most games while I work. Added benefit is that I'm not streaming on my work computer. Sweeeet.
