Wasn't too many changes. Regular season is stil ESPN on Mon, Weds, Sun night, Fox on Saturday, TBS on Sunday afternoon. I think ESPN is getting 1 of the Wild Card games. Also, Fox will get a bunch of games on their new national sports network. They are rebranding what is currently SPEED in 2014.
I think it's more of my personal interest has faded a bit... I don't have time to sit down and watch a 3 hour baseball game several times a week like I did growing up.
Hopefully FOX takes advantage of that channel and airs a good amount of games during the week....
