"Say it Ain't So": Mlb Direct TV deal Update
Basically, there is sort of some hope for fans:
The FCC will be looking into the deal.
Many teams are wrapped up in big Cable companies, and the owners will at some point have to OK the deal.
I don't agree with Sandomir that the possibility that the exclusivity of the deal might be shortened in length (to three seasons) gives fans any warm feelings. It's like if your wife only has an affair for a few years.
