It is hard enough to keep up with your own team these days, much less all of baseball. So we have sifted through and found some of the stories that were not headliners, but still info you can use, or at least get a laugh from!
CALL YOUR PROVIDER! Contracts disputes are slightly different than a network that has never been picked up by the provider, but if there is programming you are missing out on because your system does no carry the network, call, email, hire a banner plane to get the PROVIDER’S attention. The Braves, MLB, nor the network can help you- only your PROVIDER can. So, whether it is MLB, college sports, or reality house wife shows, the moral of the story is CALL YOUR PROVIDER AND TELL THEM THE PROGRAMMING YOU WANT TO SEE. You other choice is to change providers. (Just so we are clear, the provider is who you pay the bill to every month!)

NFL Red Zone here we come…I am glad to see this one because maybe the parents that are whining about baseball not keeping their kids attention and screaming for the game to change will pipe down. I have another suggestion, teach your kids the game so they understand what is going on and possibly stop crawling on strangers during the game. (Sorry, I do not find anyone ruining the game experience, countless handbags, and beverages cute!)
You can’ win a championship in April, but apparently, you can win a spot on the All-Star team!
