MLB Live TV, Online Preview & Odds for Opening Day 2016, Week 4/3 – 4/17

Play Ball! The 2016 MLB live TV and online schedule officially gets underway this weekend with three big games on Sunday, April 3 including a World Series rematch between the NY Mets and Kansas City Royals from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The following day, Monday April 4, is officially Opening Day and that means wall-to-wall all day baseball! Fans will be able to catch many of the games all Opening Week long as ESPN, Watch ESPN, MLB Network and MLB.com will be televising many of the games. `

The baseball “scheduling gods” sure didn’t waste anytime this year with putting together some great early season matchups, including the Cardinals taking on the Pirates in big NL East series, and Houston vs. the Yankees in a playoff rematch. While the triple-header will air on Sunday through ESPN, ESPN 2 and Watch ESPN online,  Opening Day officially arrives on Monday, April 4.

So the questions are out there – Can the Royals repeat as  champs? Are the SF Giants destined to win another title during an even numbered year? (2010, 2012, 2014…..2016?) Is this the season the Cubs finally…FINALLY end the 100 year plus drought of being World Series champions?  We will know those answers and more as time goes by!
