FOX to increase Primetime presence, blackouts

24

We've learned more information today, and this isn't going to please people who hate the MLB blackout rules. During the primetime schedule, [including 10 straight weeks between May and July] all games scheduled between 7 and 10 PM EST will air on FOX locally and be unavailable to watch on MLB Extra Innings or MLB.tv. Normally, FOX blackouts only take out three afternoon games at a time. During the primetime periods, the blackouts will take out five or six games at a time.

White Sox Pick Up Option on Alexei Ramirez

115

Kenny Williams is getting his ducks in a row before the Winter Meetings -- jettisoning Jenks, picking up Pierzynski, getting Dunn's deal -- and now picking up the no-brainer $2.75M option on Alexei Ramirez. It's a good bet that the KW and Ramirez come to terms on a long-term deal before camp is over.
