There’s enough angst in a Dodgers fans’ world just trying to re-remember where Fox Sports 1 was put on their TV machine so they can see Game 1 of the NLDS against the Cardinals on Friday. But come Saturday, the search could get more dicey as Game 2 will appear exclusively on the MLB Network.
As part of this year’s baseball post-season arrangement, the league-owned channel decided to keep two division series games to itself. That’s also what it did in 2012 and ’13. Now, all of the sudden, it matters more, because they’ve tagged the Dodgers, the largest TV market among all post-season teams involved.
