“We apologize for this news and will continue our dialogue with MLB and advocate on your behalf in hopes of restoring content on YouTube TV,” the service said in an email.

“As Spring Training is about to begin, we regret YouTube TV’s reluctance to negotiate a fair shipping contract,” the network said in a statement. “MLB Network offered terms that matched those that nearly 300 other U.S. providers agreed to deliver.”
The good news, they said, is that MLB Network is still widely available on several other outlets! And of course, they added that complaints should be directed to YouTube TV.
“MLB Network is widely available across the United States including Altice USA (Optimum), AT&T U-verse, Charter Communications (Spectrum), Comcast, Cox Communications, DIRECTV, DIRECTV Stream, DISH, fuboTV, Sling TV, Verizon Fios and others,” the network said in a statement.
“Due to the tremendous demand and value of live baseball content, Major League Baseball’s current and future commitments to the MLB network are stronger than ever, and we are committed to reaching an agreement with YouTube TV as soon as possible.
“To reach out to YouTube TV about MLB Network, viewers can Tweet on YouTube TV via @YouTubeTV and @TeamYouTube.”
