I’m amazed how quickly MLB Network can pick up games. In a snap of a finger, it can air a game and this week, MLB Network will carry five games including the Civil Rights Game in Cincinnati on Saturday. That game will be an MLB Network production featuring Matt Vasgersian, former Reds shortstop Barry Larkin and Harold Reynolds. Here’s the entire schedule for MLB Network this week.
