OT - Ditching the cable - is there anyway I can still watch the Royals?

I am pretty much at my last straw with cable companies. I've run through two cable companies and a satellite company and all have varying degrees of inanities to deal with. Plus we honestly don't watch that much TV as it is and its quite expensive. With more content - particularly the shows we enjoy - available online, I would very much like to ditch cable TV altogether and watch all my programming a la carte through Hulu or Netflix.

I have one weakness however and that is sports. There are enough Jayhawk basketball games on over-the-air TV that I can still get my fix (is there a way to get ESPN games online?)

But my beloved Royals play overwhelmingly on FOX Sports Kansas City (ask your cable provider if you don't already receive FOX Sports Kansas City and demand it!) I enjoyed MLB.com when I lived in the DC area, but now that I reside in the Kansas City area, my understanding is these games will be blacked out due to MLB's draconian and short-sighted rules.

So do I have any options at all, or will I be stuck with listening to the excitable Bob Davis and the dulcet tones of Steve Stewart as presented by Tompkins Industries?
