Oh, Damn

News Item: Baseball Signs 7-Year Deal To Remain on Fox.

Those of us who have suffered through the last several years of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver mangling important baseball telecasts got some bad news today, as we learned the World Series and one of the two League Championship Series will remain on Fox through 2013 (the other LCS package is still up for bid; TBS will air the first round exclusively). This is too bad- I was really hoping I'd get to hear Bob Costas call another World Series this decade.

But on the bright side, the Atlanta Braves are now not only not winners, but they're also no longer America's Team, as TBS has dropped their longstanding telecasts of their games. Not a big surprise, since the team is no longer owned by AOL/Time Warner/Turner.
