Diamond Sports Group believes it has negotiated an exit from bankruptcy, with Amazon infusing more than $100 million into the regional sports network for a chance at streaming MLB games.
The announcement early Wednesday morning seemed to catch just about everyone off guard, including MLB and the Rangers. They even said so in a court hearing later in the day.
But what initially looked like a potential lifeline for the Rangers and their fans, and was reported as such by a few outlets, was actually another day without any answers on the future of the team’s TV deal.
