    Nothing about that article sounds good. MLBTV is already notorious with their punitive blackouts and now Sinclair may squeeze the cable providers. I guess I may have to go old school and see if I can get KMOX six hours away or just listen on Sirius XM.

    Sinclair sounds like a slimy bunch.

    A number of people that I respect have gone to Sinclair, but I know very litte about them. Don’t know much about them but the key will be whether they keep a firm line between sports and politics. ESPN hasn’t done that and are paying a price.

    Prices may go up. Apparently Fox didn’t see much future in the sports network or they would not have dumped it. So the challenge will be to keep viewership and too much increase in price will defeat that purpose.

    It seems that MLB is getting such a huge price for broadcast rights that it will be hard for any network to make much money off the broadcasts.

    Is suspect that some will turn away because Sinclair is somewhat conservative. But politics will never determine what sports broadcasts I watch.

    I don’t care what their politics are. I just don’t want to lose the games on TV.

    While this story is about FOX Sports Detroit, one may surmise that the freelancers who make up most of the production crew for all of the other Sinclair regional sports networks (including FOX Sports Midwest) are being handled similarly.
