Except this won't end up with any free baseball.
The negotiations between MLB and INDemand and Dish Network over the rights to carry the MLB Extra Innings package are proceeding despite the fact that the March 31 deadline has passed and no deadline exists now, Maury Brown reports on his Business of Baseball Blog.
According to Brown, the sticking point appears to be how much of an equity share INDemand and Dish Network would get in the MLB television channel.
