In an exclusive interview with The Fields of Green, Manfred said the situation remains similar to what his predecessor, Bud Selig, experienced."We've been looking really hard at the blackout matter, and this is one issue that is difficult because you have rights that have been sold to third parties," Manfred said. "I'm actually optimistic that we're going to make some progress in the worst areas, but it is hard to tell." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
