Guys, I hate to burst anyone's bubble here but the problem isn't with Roku. Everyone is describing their internet speed as being terrific, yet you're getting buffering, etc.
Unfortunately, MLB.tv is an awful program because their servers can't handle the demand. Can't fault Roku on this one, but you can keep complaining to MLB.tv about their awful product because that's where the problem lies.

I might be inclined to agree except that after all the frustration last night and wondering what was really going on in the game I pulled out my laptop and watched the last 4 1/2 innings of the red sox/rangers game with no rebuffering problems whatsoever. I did notice some of the blurry/haziness/underwater look on MLB.tv on the laptop too. But the feed played fine.
That would seem to indicate that the problem lies with the Roku box itself. Near constant rebuffering. No problem on laptop, big trouble on roku. Doesn't seem to point solely at MLB.
All I know for now is that this has been very disappointing. Should have stuck with Directv!
