Each of the last few years when we were competitive, this September Saturday game in Minnesota was blacked out because of the Gopher conflict/MLB Saturday FOX-TV rules. Now that we're almost unwatchable, this game tomorrow is available.....what gives?

They showed it on Comcast last year, IIRC. I believe Fox now allows the noon games to be televised.

FOX Saturday Baseball no longer starts at noon...that may have something to do with it.

I thought their coverage didn't start until 3:30?

It doesn't, but Fox still has that window. It's probably because they don't want any games overlapping their game, and if a game started at 1 or 2, it probably would.

What about the Cubs-Pirates and Blue Jays-Yankees games today? They start at 1:05 Eastern.
