Sling adds Fox networks, including regional Fox Sports networks, to their service offerings. They are part of a new “beta multi-stream” service that appears to be available separately from their base plan for $20 per month. Probably the cheapest way to (legally) get in-market baseball?
Hat tip to RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) from today’s Omnichatter.

The Red Sox don’t have many options. Right now, Shaw is a better player than Sandoval was before he went off the rails. So, even if Sandoval finds workout religion, how does the team find playing time to rebuild his value enough to get another team to take on even a small portion of his contract?
NEWSFLASH: Designated Hitter must hit to be of value to team. Story at 11!

Did the article really need the intro?
BTW, it’s only seven games.
