ESPN MLB 8 Year Deal New

Well, bros for the next 8 years at least!

ESPN and the MLB have signed a new partnership pact — one that starts in 2014 and extends into 2021!

It's a multiplatform rights extension which will significantly enhance ESPN’s TV, digital, radio and International MLB rights. Here's what it includes:

The addition of an annual Wild Card game presented by Budweiser, which will alternate between AL and NL each year;
The rights to produce a significant amount of additional Baseball Tonight hours;
The rights to all regular-season tiebreaker games – if necessary;
In-progress highlights during SportsCenter on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNEWS;
10 additional regular-season games per season, including four Pennant Chase games in late September and up to six Holiday games across Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day;
New and increased co-exist rights on Monday Night Baseball and Wednesday Night Baseball;
The rights to produce a new, daily baseball studio show.

Sounds like a big deal to us!

Now, we wonder if they could figure out a way to use these broadcast rights to get the Yankees to play with their hearts instead of their wallets…

LOLz!
