We are going to have to agree to disagree here.. The agreement was for 125 games. Fox had to pay extra to brodcast the extra games and is well within their rights to ask for extra compensation. If these carriers had a legal leg to stand on here they would be standing on it. The carriers are forced to pay the price or risk losing customers. All Angel fans can hope for is that AT&T pays the price.
Are you sure that the number of games was written into the agreement? The number of games cannot be set in stone because it can change if games are selected by ESPN or Fox after the season begins.
Exactly, it's the same with the NFL, the NFL reserves the right to change game times for SNF and MNF. MLB can change games of the week on Fox and ESPN based on how teams are doing, no one wants to watch two last place teams play on the "big stage" so they can change from an RSN to Fox or ESPN.
