TBS Releases First Two Months Of Their Sunday Baseball Schedule

Wednesday, February 27, 2008


Is it really time to start talking about Baseball again? Do I have to??? Okay okay....fine. TBS is putting themselves in the business of Sunday Baseball next season with most games being aired around 1pm. Why is that? Well in the first two months of the season, seven of the eight games aired are all Midwest or Eastern Games (how about that for bias?)....

Sunday, April 6 1:00 p.m.- Boston Red Sox @ Toronto Blue Jays

Sunday, April 13 1:30 p.m.- Chicago Cubs @ Philadelphia Phillies

Sunday, April 20 1:30 p.m.- LA Dodgers @ Atlanta Braves

Sunday, April 27 1:00 p.m.- NY Yankees @ Cleveland Indians

Sunday, May 4 4:00 p.m.- NY Mets @ Arizona Diamondbacks

Sunday, May 11 1:00 p.m.- NY Yankees @ Detroit Tigers

Sunday, May 18 1:30 p.m.- Milwaukee Brewers @ Boston Red Sox

Sunday, May 25 1:00 p.m.- Seattle Mariners @ NY Yankees
New York/Boston/New York/Boston/New York/Boston....that's pretty much how it is every season now right? Anyway, there are some great matchups in there and hopefully TBS can improve on their call of games now that they have some regular season games before the Playoffs.

Chip Caray is your lead (greaaaat) for each game and the analysts will more than likely rotate around for the first few months of TBS Baseball. Don't look now but it's only a month away.

8 games * 9 innings per game * 2 commercial breaks per inning * 2 Frank TV commercials per break =

288 Frank TV commercials

I thought it was going to be more than that.

What is Tony Gwynn staring at? That's a good Create the Caption picture there.

Ha...that's exactly what I said when I found it Anon. It has to be a Double Cheeseburger.

Wow a trip to Canada right off the bat (pardon the pun) I wonder if Chip Caray will get some Deux Deux Deuxs for Berman?

Do they need to bring Tony to the booth on a forklift?

Uh Mr Gwynn, the service elevator is over there.

Hey AA, there are other teams being televised. They "just so happen" to be playing the Yankees. Glad to see it's not just ESPN.

You always hope for at least one Blue Jays game a year...

As long as this doesn't prevent me from watching the lovely Jay Randolph, Sr. and Rick Horton do Cards games on Sunday(on MLBtv), I'm ok with it. But if this new contract gives TBS sole rights to Sunday TV games(a la FOX's Saturday deal), then I'll be pissed.

@bruce:

Good point. I remember the ill-fated Baseball Network's attempts to have one game on per Saturday in '94 and '95.

So are they still gonna be airing a bunch of Braves games as well?

@Anon- no. They are no longer the main broadcaster for the Braves.

What on earth has Tony Gwynn been eating?

You do not get to complain about Chip Caray unless you've had to listen to him (instead of his father, who is the greatest broadcaster EVER, I WILL NOT argue about this) for the past 3 or 4 years. It's to the point that I'm gladly accepting a dude named Boog as my play by play announcer for TV games.

Yeah. I think it's Fox Sports South and Turner South heading the Braves games from now on.

I know they say the camera adds ten pounds, but just how many cameras did Tony Gwynn eat?

There's no way TBS' time slot could be exclusive. With Sunday Night Baseball that day too, almost every game would have to be blacked out.

Jon Sciambi sucks. More Chip Caray.

...there's still Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN? I thought this TBS agreement meant that was toast.
