Yahoo pitching paid baseball content—and starting with Mets

That’s way too much money.

The site will launch March 28 and the cost is expected to be $4.99 or $5.99 per month, according to Yahoo officials.

Reading that headline does makes me feel like I'm on fire, or in hell.

I wonder what the thought process was that led the Yahoo higher-ups to decide "yeah, the Mets that's where the money making opportunity is. Let's start there!"

It's missing a word; should be:

Yahoo is pitching paid baseball content...

So like the Athletic, but worse?

The Athletic works because (a) they have a buttload of investor money; (b) they have big names that you will want to read; and (c) you get access to all teams, in pretty much every sport. Why would you pay for just Mets content?

Yahoo's fantasy sports platform is pretty solid. Everything else about Yahoo pretty much sucks.

And it's too bad, because their regular sports page used to be decent.
