Fox asking its TV guys to help pitch new MLB deal

"Speaking of the TV deal, Fox has enlisted some of its baseball voices to help seal a deal. A few of these broadcasters have been seen schmoozing with influential owners, hoping to convince them that MLB should continue its relationship with Fox. Of course, this puts these Fox announcers in a sticky situation. How exactly can they be critical of a team owned by a guy who they are lobbying? A variety of soothsayers believes MLB may have a new TV deal within the next couple of weeks. The way things have played out so far, don't hold your breath. That said, there is absolutely no doubt a faction at Fox is pushing hard to retain MLB rights, even if it means sharing the postseason with another network." by Bob Raismann, NY Daily News
