    MLB is considering banning ESPN from putting studio sets at postseason venues because ESPN refuses to run spots promoting postseason games on other networks.</a>

    And this has absolutely nothing to do with the TV station or the radio stations known as WWL. :)

    Well, if MLB would stop insisting Dane Cook is funny...

    Good for ESPN.
    Having a gun put to your head to mention a competitor?
    Please.

    I'd rather have Stewi Griffin preview MLB Playoffs. At least they'd be cross-promoting.

    That's no surprise. We know ESPN only cares about the NBA and would run its programming 24 hours a day if possible.

    I'd rather listen to my dick being put through a meat grinder than endure more Jeannie Zalasko-Kevin Kennedy banter.

    I'd rather have your dick put through a meat grinder than listen to them, too. :)

    I think that all we would hear would be your screams.

    And it would be preferable.

    I'm sure ESPN will find worthwhile spots nearby. They'll muddle through.

    Why should ESPN run promos for other networks? Pretty ballsy for MLB to do that to a network that probably saved its ass after the strike.
