Re: A's acquire Jed Lowrie from Astros
How would you like to be Comcast Sportsnet right about now? Both the Rockets and the Astros broadcasts switched from Fox Sports to Comcast this season. The last I read Comcast Sportsnet reached about 40% of the households in the Houston area. It is not on Dish for sure and I am almost certain is not on either Direct or UVerse. The Astros could well reek for the next two years, so I doubt there is much pressure for any of those providers to pick them up. I don't feel much buzz down here for the approaching baseball season. The club will stink. A lot of folks are not very enamored about the move to the American League. And a huge percentage of fans will not be able to watch them on the tube. That doesn't bode well, IMO.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
