We may all hate ESPN but they are our main source of out of market games. Selig screwed them over for the TBS deal
ESPN not happy
ESPN and Major League Baseball are having their second major skirmish in just two months, a fight that could see the league restrict the network’s access to postseason games and that further shows a deteriorating relationship between baseball and one of its biggest media partners.
The current dispute centers on ESPN’s refusal to run on-air spots promoting postseason telecasts on Fox and TBS. This is the first time in years that ESPN will not run ads promoting playoff games on other networks, and, not coincidentally, also marks the first time since 1996 that ESPN will not have postseason baseball on its schedule.
