We're not sure how this is going to work out for them, but the Outdoor Life Network — all uppity after agreeing to be the main NHL network this season — is going to try to bid on Major League Baseball next season. The goal is to pry away those Sunday night and Wednesday night games when ESPN's contract runs out, which is at the end of this season.
OLN would almost certainly have to overpay wildly to get the rights, but that's usually how these new networks work. We imagine Bud Selig, however, to just be touched that, for once, MLB is the prettiest girl at the ball. Well, not the prettiest, but at least the one those who have given up on bedding the cheerleader are going after.
