Light In the Blackout?

Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports has a good piece on MLB's archaic blackout rules and a possible discussion of removing them. Go here to read it.

The situation is absurd, and it's a wonder that MLB's cable and internet broadcasts have gained the popularity that they have with these rules in place. The rules that MLB follows were made a long time ago, for situations that have become obsolete. There is no question that MLB could change them without much bloodletting; the question is whether or not ownership thinks it is in their best interest to do so.
