Not a big fan of Jerry Meals.

Friday at 1:05 and Saturday at 8:07, both on FS1
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Get your Worrell button ready. TV announcers for games 1-2 are Kenny Albert, Joe Girardi, and.... AJ Fuckhead.

I know it is an annual tradition to bitch about the start times of games, but this is fucking ridiculous. There are only two games on Saturday, there's no need to have one starting after 8:00. Most elementary school age kids will only be able to watch just a few innings of the first two games of the series at most.

They manufactured their own problem by putting both Saturday games back-to-back on FS1.  And when Yankees/Twins inevitably runs long, I'm sure they'll delay switching over to our game.

I can deal with the f'd up start times, but if they delay our game I will absolutely loose my shit!

That would be beyond the pale. They have got to find a way to do better than that. Like switching to the later game in the territories of the two teams. Or putting the late game on an alternate FOX network until the big FOX can pick it up. But since it is already on FOX1 I suppose there isn't an alternate network and it is a college football gameday. This has the possibility of being really fucked up.

I mute the tv and pickup the Astros radio broadcast. You have to synch it up because tv is ahead of radio but that is easy with the delay tv button.

They've put them on FX before.

I've got Sling for TV, but apparently they're in a dispute with Fox, so I likely won't be able to see the games on FS1.

Any recommendations on the cheapest/best alternative for watching Fox channels for the next month?

I quit sling and moved to Youtube TV.  I would at least use the free week during this round of the playoffs. 
Always ready to go to a game.

YouTube TV, Fubo, HULU, etc. all seem to offer a free week. Try them all and then choose your favorite. I’m using FUBO TV after trying several providers, mainly because of ATT SportsNet is only on my it. Unless I’m mistaken

I do that too. I usually end up a little behind GameZone

First I've heard of Fubo.  I think I may do YouTube from October-March (for postseason and college football) and Fubo for the regular season.

-The Rays won four out of seven games against Houston in 2019.
 -The Astros outscored the Rays 40-27 in 2019.
 -Tampa won three of those four games to open the 2019 season.
 -The Astros scored nine runs in those four games, and scored four runs in the last three games of that opening series combined.
 -The second HOU/TBR series was Aug 27-29. Houston won 15-1, won 8-6, and lost 9-8.
 -The Astros are 5-12 at Tropicana Field since the beginning of the 2015 season. They're 2-6 in 2018-2019.

Buckle up, folks. Tampa is a good baseball team. Their bullpen is purportedly one of the best in MLs so getting runs early is key.

Which will have to done against last year's Cy Young winner, a suddenly emergent phenom, and CFM.
