    Thanks for posting, however I could care less about MLB's TV anything until they fix the rediculous black-out rules.

    Figures... ESPNHD becomes standard on Insight (at least i think so, It just started working out of the blue) and I wont be seeing games on it now.

    Hopefully I will have free TNT-HD by then

    Can't disagree with you there Funky, but I'm glad to see ESPN losing rights to the post season.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    they don't need to wait for a new TV deal to fix the blackout rules, they could address that whenever they want.

    Hate to lose Morgan and Miller, but if I never have to listen to Sutcliff and Boomer again, it's a good thing.

    So no more Sunday night baseball? It looks as if this is just on Saturdays not Sundays or have I read this incorrectly?

    For the love of God, the entire postseason should be on network TV. Period.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I do agree with the above. There are actually some places in the world where cable isn't an option - though there is satellite.

    With the MLB package - anybody can get any game. Unless the blackout rules are changed.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Does ESPN retain rights to some games during the regular season? Surely MLB has not bargained for just 26 Saturday games on Fox with division playoff games on TBS/TNT and taken all of the other ESPN coverage away, have they?
