Calif. (AP) — Baseball owners plan to vote on a new term for Commissioner Rob
Manfred, a new television contract with Fox and an agreement for in-game cut-ins
with the subscription video streaming service DAZN when they meet next week in
Atlanta, a person familiar with the agenda told The Associated Press.The person
spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because Major League Baseball
had not made public the agenda for the meetings, scheduled for Nov. 14 and
15.Manfred was elected commissioner in August 2014 to succeed Bud Selig and
started a five-year term the following Jan. 25. The person said Manfred’s new
term likely will be for five years.Fox and Turner Broadcasting are in the midst
of eight-year agreements through 2021 in which Fox has exclusive rights to the
World Series and All-Star Game, splits the League Championship Series with
Turner and shares the Division Series with Turner and the MLB Network.DAZN
(pronounced Da-Zone), which launched this year, has been negotiating a $300
million http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-aaron-loup-jersey ,
three-year deal with MLB, the person said. Former ESPN president John Skipper is
the chairman of DAZN’s parent company.DAZN announced an 11-fight deal last month
with boxer Canelo Alvarez. DAZN, a live and on-demand service, said it is backed
by Access Industries, a company founded by Leonard Blavatnik. PHILADELPHIA (AP)
— Freddie Freeman, Nick Markakis and the NL East champion Atlanta Braves are set
to open the playoffs on the road.All they need is an NL West champion to
play.Needing at least a win to have a shot at home field in the NLDS, the Braves
lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 on Sunday.The Braves needed a win and a
loss by both Colorado and Los Angeles to secure home-field advantage when the
division series starts Thursday.The Dodgers and Rockies both ended up winning
big Matt Adams
, setting up a one-game playoff to decide the NL West. But
the Braves’ second straight loss in Philadelphia made those results
inconsequential for Atlanta.Braves manager Brian Snitker said he’ll watch the NL
West-deciding game like a regular fan.“I don’t have a pick one way or the
other,” he said. “I’m just glad we’re going to play Thursday.”Cesar Hernandez
hit a leadoff home run, and Rhys Hoskins’ RBI double in the fifth inning helped
a Phillies team that was 15 games over .500 on Aug. 5 finish with 80 wins.Losing
home field was a mild disappointment to a Braves team that was a surprising,
resounding success under Snitker. The Braves had lost 90-plus games in three
straight seasons in a rebuild that was expected to see them need at least
another season to contend for a playoff spot. Freeman, Nick Markakis and NL
rookie of the year contender Ronald Acuna Jr. instead helped them become the
first NL team to win 90 games (90-72) after three successive seasons of 90-plus
losses.“I’m happy for all the guys in there that endured all that,” Snitker
said.There’s more work ahead before they play either the Los Angeles Dodgers or
Colorado Rockies. Snitker said he’ll meet with the coaching staff and other
members of the organization on Monday to determine the 25-man playoff roster.
Shortstop Dansby Swanson’s sore left wrist may keep him off that roster. He took
some swings on Sunday and continued to receive treatment.With or without him,
the Braves are in the playoffs for the first time since 2013.“It’s a good
feeling what we accomplished this year — where we came from http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-kevin-long-jersey ,
where we started to where we are right now,” Snitker said. “There were multiple
boxes we needed to check along the way here, and we did. It’s very gratifying.
I’m proud of the guys in that room and how they carried themselves and showed up
to play every single day.”Markakis led the way there, playing all 162 games for
the Braves, and Freeman led the NL in hits.Kevin Gausman (10-11) took the loss
in his first start since Sept. 20 and settled down after Hernandez’s leadoff
homer.“I just kind of grooved that first pitch in there. I mean, it was right
down the middle,” he said.Tommy Hunter (5-4) earned the win in relief for the
Phillies http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-joaquin-benoit-jersey ,
and Seranthony Dominguez got his 16th save to end a season where expectations
soared in early August only to become unraveled in one of the bigger — but not
close to the biggest — late-season collapses in team history. The Phillies went
17-34 after they were 15 games over .500 on Aug. 5.Rookie manager Gabe Kapler
said 2019 could be a special season should his key players continue to improve —
something think about in a pivotal offseason.“It’s going to include probably a
lot of thinking about the Phillies,” he said.HIT KINGFreeman led the National
League with 191 hits. He’s the first Brave to lead the NL outright since Terry
Pendleton had 187 in 1991.Freeman went 0 for 1 with a walk against the
Phillies.IRON MANMarkakis because the fifth Atlanta Brave to start all 162 games
since 1962. Markakis started in right field and struck out twice before he was
replaced for some needed rest.“He’s the definition of a pro,” Snitker
said.CHANGEUPSean Newcomb retired two batters in the sixth in the first relief
appearance of his career. Newcomb went 12-9 in 30 starts this season and had
started all 49 of his previous appearances.GOING FOR THREEPhillies starter
Ranger Suarez struck out five in three innings — and hit a stand-up triple for
his first career hit.BANK ON ITThe Phillies finished 49-32 at home, their
third-best record ever at Citizens Bank Park. They finished 31-50 on the road,
the first time the Phillies were at least 15 games over .500 at home and 15
games under .500 on the road since 1955.Hoskins addressed the crowd before the
game and said there was “obviously a little bit of disappointment with the way
the season ended” but added that the Phillies would learn from it and be better
in 2019.On fan appreciation day, Hoskins said Phillies fans were the best in
baseball.HE SAID IT“If we had finished .500 this year, it would have been a huge
step forward Ryan

NLDS on Thursday, Game 2 Friday and Game 3 Sunday. Mike Foltynewicz is the
likely Game 1 starter.Phillies: GM Matt Klentak and team president Andy MacPhail
