Sling adds regional Fox Sports networks, including MLB games

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?

Tom Verducci, Harold Reynolds out of Fox’s baseball booth, John Smoltz to be lead game analyst

After two years, Tom Verducci and Harold Reynolds are out of the Fox broadcast booth, and John Smoltz will the network’s lead game analyst, two people familiar with the plans told the Daily News. Smoltz and play-by-play man Joe Buck will be the new World Series team.

A Fox Sports spokesperson confirmed the change. An official announcement is expected later on Tuesday.

Following the departure of longtime analyst Tim McCarver after the 2013 World Series, Fox tapped Verducci, a highly respected baseball writer for Sports Illustrated, and Reynolds, a former player and an on-air personality for MLB Network. The three-man booth drew mixed reviews, and now Fox is making a change.
