All the outlets have been saying they intend to play him at 3rd tonight along with Cruz at short, so I don't see why he wouldn't be playing.

In my opinion, chances are slim.  I was arguing about this on the other board, but no expert really stepped in to confirm my expectation.

Except for Fox, which has the right to trump local (MASN) broadcasts, all others are blacked out (ie ESPN) to protect MASN.

MASN is broadcasting every game on Direct TV, hence their need to be protected.

Fortunately Angelos does not have that power....Unfortunately, MLB does, and they will black it out since it's "on" MASN around here.
