Re/code: Major League Baseball Cries Foul on Net Neutrality Proposal

‘Flixing it the other way.

Last week, the sports league’s digital media arm told the FCC that the controversial fast-lane net neutrality proposal was a bad idea for several reasons, one being that the added costs to content companies to use those fast lanes would likely ultimately be passed along to consumers.

“Fast lanes would serve only one purpose: for Broadband ISPs to receive an economic windfall,” MLB’s Advanced Media unit wrote in a filing. “American consumers would be worse off as the costs of fast lanes are passed along to them in new fees or charges where there were none, or higher fees or charges where they existed.”

Big League Stew: The Internet made it so: 50 Cent’s bad first pitch hit by Vladimir Guerrero

We will never forget, Vlad.

Thank you, Internet wizards at MLB Fan Cave for mashing that up for our delight. (It’s our second favorite 50 Cent mashup, for the record). But we needed Vlad meets 50, we just didn’t know we needed it.
