OK, so the cable company has the MLB Extra Innings free preview going this week, and I'm considering getting it. I know that last time they did a free preview some games were blacked out. For example, the Pittsburgh Pirates game was blacked out, which doesn't really make any sense since I'm centrally located between Cleveland and Cincinnati. Pittsburgh is at least a three hour drive from hear. I think they were playing a west coast team, so the opponent shouldn't be a factor. My main question is if anyone knows what qualifies games for blackout. If Reds games are going to be blacked out (even if they're not on a local channel/Fox Sports Net) because I'm considered to live too close, my interest wanes severely.
