TBS Gives Out Divisional Assignments, Adds An Analyst

Monday, October 01, 2007

So the teams are set for the first round of the playoffs, and the assignments have gone as expected. The A Team gets the Yankees and the B Team gets the Cubs, and since the Mets collapsed and didn't make the playoffs, Ron Darling has been brought on as analyst as well. He'll be paired with Dick Stockton and Bob Brenly will be moved to form the three man team that will do the NLCS with Caray and Gwynn.

Confusing I know, but here's the breakdown....

Chip Caray, Tony Gwynn, and Bob Brenly- Yankees/Indians
Dick Stockton, Ron Darling- Cubs/Diamondbacks
Ted Robinson, Steve Stone- Angels/Red Sox
Don Orsillo, Joe Simpson- Phillies/Padres or Rockies

(Source TBS Press Release)

Orsillo and Simpson are also on the tie-breaker tonight, which I will not be watching because of the Monday Night Football live-blog. Feel free to give me updates throughout the night though.

They haven't announced the times for the games yet, have they? Seems like they could get that figured out, since they know three of the matchups, and know it's gonna be Phillies vs. a team from the west.

Good call on Ron Darling. There's a rule that says that you have to have a Met in the playoffs somewhere.

I'm surprised they haven't tried to bring in David Wright yet.

The game times will not be released until at least noon today at the earliest.

Thanks for that GMoney. That'd be good, I hope they don't wait until after the game tonight.

I don't even know why I care so much, I know my team (Indians) is going to be in primetime every game, only because of their opponent.

Awful announcing + no TBS HD for most of the country. For once, I'm actually longing for an ESPN-based broadcast.
